I don't normally write a review which is negative but this hotel needs improvement. When we checked in we were asked for our confirmation number which we would normally have in email but our phone would not power up and were told we had to wait if she had to look it up by name. The check in lady proceeded... More

Late at night, tired, used phone to find a reputable motel to spend the night at. Holiday Inn Express came up. Called the number and it was answered by Clarion staff. Was told Clarion bought out Holiday Inn. Thinking not checking, my fault, I reserved a suite room for five of us. Had 2 kids and three adults in the... More

Best advice: move on and stay at another hotel. The help is extremely rude. We arrived at 9:00 PM to find the clerk watching TV and a bit put out that we interrupted her evening. Also, she had the phone off the hook, again assuming she did not want to be bothered by the hotel guests. But here comes the... More

Sadly, it is time for us to move on. For several years we have enjoyed this property for it's convenience to Highfields, reasonable price and cleanliness. We usually stay 5-6 times a year, so you can understand my disappointment. Since our last visit 6 months ago this property had drastically declined. I think there may be new management because our...

They had a decent breakfast, but unfortunately some not-so-nice guest took a bunch of stuff in bags. I wished they would have gotten on to them or been faster to replace the lack of food. Otherwise it was fine, there is a Fresh Market, Jimmy John's, and Applebee's within walking distance. They were power washing the concrete, so they were... More

This motel needs a total re-do. The carpet was tired and dirty looking, stain on hassock, very small room with two queen beds, mattresses were just okay. Bathroom was clean. Groups of young men/patrons drinking beer and were noisy at night. They tossed chicken bones, beer bottle caps and cigarette buts all over the area. Walkways were dirty.There were two... More

We checked in on Sat excited to be going to The Masters. Late Sat my father was admitted to he hospital and he died. We checked out and it was a 2day reservation with no refund and there was no exception, even death of a father. I understand it was a special weekend but the motel was not full. The... More

1. Pool was unusable, not sure if that was the time of year or it's natural state. 2. The deadbolt on the door did not work. Eek! 3. The room reeked of bleach, from the bathroom to the sheets. At least it was clean, with minimal chances of bedbugs. But it smelled like they were trying to hide a dead... More

We do apologize you did not enjoy your stay. In response to your reservation, you made the reservation on line through the Choice Reservation System. We did not do it here at the hotel. This was made on November 18, 2013 and you didn't confirm your dates to see if you made them correctly. Our Front Desk Staff was helping... More

We've stayed here many times over the years and always had a pleasant experience. We normally check in late and have always been greeted by a friendly clerk and the rooms are always clean and adequate. The parking lot in the back needs better lighting, but other than that I've never had any complaints. I'd stay here again.
