When cking in we asked if we could use the fax during our two weeks if needed and were told the fax machine wasn't working, also the copier wasn't working and no mail pick up. Not good for... More

The picture on the ad is taken from the most flattering angle. This is a sad little property way out on the outskirts of Opelika with the absolute minimum of frills. Room is dark, dreary and very small, we'd feel absolutely claustrophobic if the ceilings weren't taller than normal. Bare bones bathroom with thin towels. Paint obviously touched up (with... More

We stayed here to attend the Auburn A Day game. My husband left his wedding band and watch in a drawer in the room and we received a call from Shovana at the front desk while we were at the game. Crystal had found the items when she came to clean the room. And turned them in... He had not... More

If you aren't expecting much and just want a cheap motel for one night, this place is not too bad. It's older but it's fairly well maintained an kept clean. We stayed one night while traveling I-65 and since it was only 6000 Choice points, the price was right. We really had no complaints until 7:30 in the morning the... More

Great, little value motel.Clean and friendly staff. No complaints! This is a no frills place, but much better than some nearby. We come here to attend Auburn football games and some hotels are way overpriced for much less.

So far, so good. The room is old and outdated, but it is clean. The staff has been friendly. You get what you pay for, but this room has a microwave, fridge, and FREE Wifi. It is located on a very busy street, and is hard to get out of, but for the price, we can deal with it.

I stayed here over night in one of the outside rooms. The room had a microwave & fridge which I like. The bed was comfortable enough, clean bedding. The bathroom had a few hairs on the floor, but no maid is perfect. The tub was clean and I was able to take a nice hot bath after a long drive.... More

Stopped here just to sleep and shower while traveling. Good service, friendly staff. The rooms are ok, clean but if you look you can find flaws. Bed ok, bathroom ok, breakfast is toast and cereal. Had a microwave and fridge in the room. I paid 50 for a king room, free wifi

I usually stay near Auburn University or near Exit 58 on I85 during game-days but for the florida game I could not find rooms available in that area. So I checked with this for the first time. During the reservation, I requested for a non smoking room but it was not available. So I was forced by myself to take... More
