The hotel is a little past its prime, but was very clean and in order. The hotel staff were cheerful and very helpful. The restaurant was ample for a night and hot breakfast was served with our stay. Location was good for driving through town.

I reserved a king suite with a baby crib and a fridge using my Choice points. Got there to check in and was told there were no kings left and that we would have to take a room with doubles. I said ok, we need a crib. Was told they would bring one up. Called down a hour later and... More

This hotel is not the elegant, expensive type of place to stay, but for the money it is good overall. We've always had good service, clean rooms and a pleasant stay! Also, it is right off I-40 makes it easy to get to and is close to fast food.

this was the last stop on our way out west and thank goodness we stopped here. For the price I don't think this place can be beat. The staff said it used to be a holiday Inn so they had this huge corridor and courtyard with a pool! good 50's style restaurant with great burgers!

This is the second time I have stayed here. The staff are nice the rooms are ok. No fridge or microwave. The do have smoking rooms, so avoid them if you don't want your room to smell like a ashtray. Overall, I would stay here again.

We stayed here at the last minute (about 10:30 pm) on our drive home. We basically needed a bed and it did the job. After staying in nicer Clarion's, I was surprised at the state of this one. It wasn't bad, and it wasn't good. I will say we spent more money to stay here than in the Aloft in... More

Smells cigarette smoke. No microwave. No refrigerator. Bed is pretty comfortable. Small room and bathroom. Unfriendly staff. On a lighter note, the diner is good. Our server accommodated us even though its 30 minutes before closing. Breakfast was great! Ms Maria was awesome!

I had stayed in this Hotel on several occasions when it was still HI, rooms were still very nice as before. Overnight staff was more than helpful & polite. Only drawback was the mattresses, definitely need to upgrade them.
