When we pulled up to the hotel there was about a half dozen people near the front entrance smoking. When we checked out the next day there was another group there smoking. The hotel had provided a table and some chairs for the smokers to use. The hotel could have probably put the table and chairs some where away from... More

We needed this room just as a stopping point to get some rest. The room itself was ok. Seemed clean enough and was quiet. The front desk was pleasant but when we came back down to have a question answered we had to wait for her to finish her smoke break out the front door. The continental breakfast was a... More

As part of a homeschool two-day adventure comparing playgrounds in the area, I stayed overnight with two grandchildren, ages 7 and 10. We found this motel to be in our price range so booked it. From the outside, it is—nothing…or WHERE is it! The big sign says it should be right there, but it doesn’t look like a motel from... More

Ok overnight stay, but nothing special.Needs a facelift and updating badly.Coffee maker but no coffee, or milk , needed extra pillows -, and generally felt like housekeeping was in a big hurry.Room also very noisy-be sure not to be near the desk or ice machine -people running up and down late at night, early morning.

We stayed here one night. The room was clean, but showed wear. Towels were threadbare.The hotel appeared to be partially through some renovations. We ate dinner in the onsite restaurant. It was okay for the price. We received a breakfast ticket at check-in that indicated it was a plated type breakfast in the restaurant. It turned out to be a... More

Very disappointed in this hotel. Very noisy with banging on the walls and dogs barking. Room was okay. In need of updates. Continental breakfast was not the best. With only cereal and bread and fruit to choose from. If you wanted juice you you were out of luck. Would not stay again.

The price was good. The location was good. This is a pretty large place. You can tell that it used to be an upscale hotel. Those days are gone, however. It wasn't terrible just pretty dated. The heater only barely kept up with the cold and it really wasn't that cold outside, mid twenties. There was exposed wiring where It... More

This is not a destination. It's a hotel for travellers on their way who need a clean, quiet place to sleep and a bath for a good price. That's what we got. At first, we thought this was a strip mall, but then the huge sign in front confirmed it was a motel. The motel had a safe in the... More
