When we booked the room on the website it was supposed to be a room with 2 queen beds. When we got there, the room was tiny With only 1 bed. The remote for the TV didn't work. There was dirt and hair along all the heat vents and baseboards. Plus when checking in they had the wrong credit card... More

I booked a hotwire.com hot deal for a 3 star hotel and got this dump. I paid $93 for two night non refundable. I was immediately regretting my purchase. We got to the hotel and the last checking us in was wearing a dirty tank top short shorts and no shoes. The lobby smelled and was outdated. We got our... More

We been staying here for a bit and have had no problem!!! The manager has been very helpful! We were first in the smallest room but once my husband started bringing in extra money she had no problem moving us to alot bigger room. The price is very affordable! And everyone is so friendly and sweet especially with our kids!... More

We got stranded in an unusual snow storm. I am in a wheelchair and our car was buried in the parking lot in a couple feet of snow. The female manager (Heather) worked with my wife and another man for 20-25 minutes shoveling our car out before we could continue our travels. Well beyond the duties of the hotel Mgr.... More

Stayed at this location because we were sick and the price was in our range. Thought it was cute till we got into the room. The floor wasn't vacuumed, the furniture was all broken (had to eat dinner on the bed), most of the fixtures were damaged, and everything was dusty. Little did I know the worst was to come.... More

One of the most disgusting experiences I've had to endure. All that was missing were the bugs. The condition of this room was far below acceptable. Unclean and dingy, dark bedroom, dirty sink area, faucets which barely worked - I was afraid to turn on the air conditioner since it was filthy - eww - eww. Never again. Spend a... More

If all you want is a bed for the night in a clean room at a reasonable price, this place could do it. It's an older motel, not updated recently and the decor and fixtures reflect that. The towels were soft, not sandpapery as in some cheap places, sometimes including moderately-priced national chains. The refrigerator in the room is a... More
