I paid around $60.00 total. The good first: Room was very clean! Shower was hot and pressure was great. CONS: Bed is so uncomfortable, low, low, low to the floor. Had to ask for a couple of pillows because the two on the bed were so small, had to ask for towels to - there were 2 in the bathroom... More

We stayed at this motel basically to get some sleep on our way to New Orleans. The room was clean, and staff was friendly. The beds weren't to bad, I would definitely look into getting new pillows. I had bad neck pain from the flat pillows. Other than that it was good for driving through

I stayed here last January on my way home from Florida. The room was a bit small but clean, no smells etc...I had 2 dogs with me and felt safe taking them for several walks. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would have liked parking closer to the doors.

This hotel is right behind Burger King and very close to I-75. It appears to be either new-ish or recently updated. Everything in my room was in working order and very clean. There are no bathroom amenities other than soap, but the tub/shower was large. There is no clock in the room, but in today's tech world that's minor. There's... More

Stayed here for a week while apartment searching in Cleveland for business. I really liked the staff here. They were very attentive and wanted everyone's stay to be good. There is no breakfast at this hotel but there is a Burger King, Waffle House etc nearby.

I've stayed at this hotel many times traveling from WV to GA. The owners are very friendly and always helpful. There are soda and snack machines. The pool has never been working since I've stayed here, drained and gated shut, but a pool isn't important to me. The rooms are clean and bug free. Never had a problem with any... More

The location is great for the I-75 traveler. The front desk staff is friendly and accommodating. Room was exactly what was needed. I hit this going south from Michigan to Florida in early May. The value was so good that I sought this hotel out on my return trip. Just as nice the second time around. Save money, sleep well.... More
