This was a cheap motel and mostly acceptable, but I could not get over the odor. My husband thought it smelled like cleaning products, but I thought it was just old. The bed was comfortable and the staff was friendly. The breakfast was good.

This was a great location and the rooms were clean. The air conditioner was a little loud but not a problem. Our only complaint was the breakfast offered very little selection and that was the one thing we felt needed improvement.

Nice hotel and the staff was very helpful and gave us a late checkout because we were not sure if we would need to stay another night.

The carpet was so sticky, our feet itched terribly. There was only 1 pillow, 1 bath and hand towel, and 1 washcloth... More

This is a blue-collar hotel as evidenced by the many business trucks and construction vehicles in the lot when we arrived late at night. That's not a negative but things get hopping pretty early in the morning because of it. The continental breakfast starts at 6AM and goes until 9:30 or 10:00 AM. There aren't a lot of amenities at...
