Not a very nice hotel compared to other country inns. Staff not aware of hotel availability so even if you call, it will all be different upon arrival! Beware...use one of the many other hotels on this exit.....if this was a last resort...I would drive further up highway 65.

We stayed here on two separate occasions. The first time it was hard to locate but we found it. It seems this small town foes not believe in road signs. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious. There is also a lending library for all ages.

I arrived at the hotel very early in the morning. I was actually pulled over by a police officer who directed me to the hotel. It is hard to see from the road.

this hotel is behind another hotel and the signage is poor...I agree with another reviewer that the place is not for the general traveler...the walls are thin and a lot of door slammers. Front desk staff was friendly, but no breakfast until 7 am on Saturday. the hotel badly needs updating and I couldn't believe I received no points for... More

I was very disappointed in this hotel. The only thing about it that was decent was the two people I spoke with at the front desk. First, the hotel was pretty much empty, however, I was given a double room, even though I was alone. I would have preferred a larger bed, but it did not happen. I was able... More

This hotel seems to be marketed more towards blue collar workers and transients. This hotel is not ideal for a general traveler needing a place to stay or a family with kids. I walked into my room and an overwhelming odor of smoke immediately overtook me. I called down to the front desk and they told me all non-smoking rooms... More
