There has been a lot of bad press for this motel. No it is not a 5 star motel by any means. The room we had was clean and updated with a King bed. I check for bedbugs ( I do that at all motels regardless). There were none. The breakfast could be a bit better but we didn't stay... More

Very clean room and well worth the low price. If all you need is a clean room for sleeping, this is the place. I would compare with Motel 6. Nice family run business. If you need modern conveniences, this isn't for you. Air conditioning worked better that some much higher priced places.

Nasty filthy place! Grey dingy sheets & towels, look so unclean! Food behind bed, dust so thick you can write in it. Crud pushed all around the bed, pen caps, twist ties, major lint, who knows what! Dirty shower, orange slime build up on shower door corners. We were bit by bedbugs or something in minutes. We could not stay!... More

This is an update to a review I had left earlier. I took it back due to a misunderstanding and I have talked to the owner of the hotel and am completely satisified and am sorry if that review prevented anyone from staying here. You can't beat this place for comfort and price. The room was quite large and clean.... More

I spent the night here on business, and was very pleased with the value I got for my money. I paid just $49 for a quiet night in a spacious room. The motel is a large single story building with a separate addition. Both are interior hallway style, so parking is not as convenient as at some older motels. I... More
