Perfect place for a quick overnite. Much nicer inside rooms than outside of hotel would lead you to expect. Would definitely stay here again if travels put us here again. Our king room has been completely updated. Non-smoking room no smell of cigarettes. Very friendly en even with midnight check in.

Friends booked it this time and as others have stated this location has changed names several times. This stay was A LOT better than a few years back. This time, would stay again. Nothing special, it is as the price would suggest a low frills motel but the room had recently been renovated so sheets, towels, decor all fresh and... More

Stayed for 5 days. Upon seeing the place I was a bit taken aback. Sign not really visible. Check-in was smooth. Our room was on the second floor, no elevator, but we had a ton of stuff to lug up and down. The paint on the building was minimal. Pool was out of service. Plus side... the room was clean,... More

First, please let me acknowledge that the staff was generally friendly and courteous. The room, however was not a good value for the price charged. We opened the door (blazened with a non-smoking symbol) to be knocked down by the odor of stale cigarette smoke. The rooms have clearly been remodeled in some aspects but the odor is deeply saturated... More

I had read the reviews for this hotel on Tripadvisor and I really wanted to be able to give it a good review. I don't consider myself a "hotel snob," but I do require cleanliness in order to give a good review. I'll start with the positives: When I checked in the owners were super nice and friendly. They gave... More

I've stayed here several times, it's the only motel I stay at in Decatur. Owners are nice and accommodating. Rooms are clean and oder free. I've had to pay higher prices for rooms not as clean in other parts of the country. Showers are a big plus to me as being a truck driver we don't get the best showers... More

The rooms were nice. WiFi worked well with no problems. The price was easy on the budget. Staff was nice when I called to say the price on my bill was wrong. When in fact I was wrong. lol only complaints I have is front desk should be occupied more often, which in my case no big deal. Would stay... More
