Booked thru an online site and non-refundable, upon arrival at 10:30 pm with two 15 year old and one 17 year old girl, found the bedspreads to be filthy. The room had not been vacuumed and worst of all, all the walls were covered in grime! Sketchy people gathered in parking lot all night meeting up and loud music. Did... 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.
