Okay for a trip trying to save money. Even though ads say remodeled rooms, we didn't get one. I'd say it was halfway remodeled. Must have long term residences here. Grounds are great for dog walking. Use your own judgment about rooms.

The first room we were put in had a dirty bed, leftover food in the bathroom sink, and dirt on the mirror. The door locks had to be slammed to work and the safety lock didn't even line up so it could be used. When we brought this to their attention we were moved to a different room which had... More

This is the former Holiday Inn on N.MacArthur Drive,and the resturant is empty...the libby as it once were,is no more. The office and lobby are relocated for evidently a lot of renovation. The pool? It's a birdbath now :(

We did not read the reviews but an Econolodge elsewhere was reasonable. The front building had been closed down. The lobby was sufficient and the check in was ordinary. The rooms were musty, the blankets had burned spots, the door did not close completely. That was difficult, but no refunds. By nightfall the parties - loud and boisterous - began... More

Switched to room 116, not as bad, but dirty, one pillow case had a big grease stain on it. Checked out next morning, job went overtime, went back to get a... More

MY mistake for staying here. I should have gone on down the road, but, we were tired.........my only excuse. This place is supposedly being remodeled. The lobby has new floors & a couple newly painted walls..... I told the desk clerk I wanted to see the room in which I would be staying. She showed me an okay room, but... More

Seriously, I am NOT KIDDING!!! Go to Walmart, and spend the $50 on a sleeping bag and pillow and stay in your car. It will be safer and cleaner. My family and I have stayed in A LOT of hotels and we are NOT picky people. We don't need extra amenities or over the top service. And we stay in... More

Do not ever stay in this motel, it's AWFUL. It is SO dirty, I don't even think the sheets were changed after the last few guests (at least). Staines on EVERYTHING, holes in everything, just 1 dirty towel for the two of us. Front desk is VERY RUDE and ignored our calls all night. People screaming and hanging out in... More

I am a platinum ChoiceRewards member. We got a Suite. The room was huge but was the most disgusting place I have ever stayed. There were drug particles in the drawers, mashed bugs on wall and bath counter. The toes were not cleaned , the bathroom floor was covered in black gunk. No remotes and the front desk night lady...
