The room was nice and so were the people, but the bathrooms and the rest of the hotel could use an update. We had a great stay though! All of the hotels in the area were full because of orientation, but they found room for us. Again, very nice people!

We had seen a bazillion signs for low priced hotels but none of them turned out to be true while we traveled, even though it was during the week. Our rooms cost us $50; the hotel was spotless and they do provide breakfast. I slept very, very, well in this hotel. The staff was also extremely accomodating. We paid the... More

The chemical deodorant barely masked the funk and moldy smell. The chair cushions and bed covers were nasty and stained. Curtains were broken and missing hooks. The toilet wobbled on the floor. The porcelain in the sink had a holebroken in it. The handicap handle in the tub was broken. The water drip from the air conditioner above me was... More

We stayed here for a softball tournment. Location is not the greatest, but not that bad either. We had a king suite and it was excellent. Great value, room was large, well appointed and clean. Breakfast was provided and was just ok. We will stay here again. Staff was super nice.

This cute little hotel was a nice surprise and a welcomed value during a relatively long road trip. We found the front desk team - which probably included a manager or assistant manager - truly guest services-oriented. They were eager to provide the best room they had on the spot... we had stopped without booking a reservation. They were professional... More

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. Great property, Chris, hotel's GM and Jay were awesome. I don't recall ever experiencing such outstanding customer service. I will definitely stay again and will recommend this hotel to others. Good renovation job. Greatly appreciate all your effort, Chris. My husband and our friends enjoyed our stay.

All staff were friendly and accommodating and the room was clean upon arrival and remained so for each of the 5 days we were there. The breakfast was a bit limited but adequate. The location was good with the interstate next door.
