To start out with on arrival, Angie had a hot pot of coffee ready. This set the mood for the rest of my stay. I even washed my laundry there.

This BW is more like a motel than hotel. The breakfast area has two round tables that seat 4 and two 2 tables that seat 2. So only a total of 12 people could fit in the breakfast area and believe me, that is about all that can fit.

Hi Vacationjunkieok: Sorry you did not enjoy your stay. Did you have trouble with seating for breakfast? We have a meeting room upstairs that seats an addition 45 when the bottom is full. Please give us another try when we are fully remodeled. Thank you, Bob More

We began our trip from Ky to Ca with our first night stay at this motel. It was great. Our room was clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Although the breakfast area was small, the food was very good. My husband loved the sausage and biscuits as well as bacon, waffles and all the rest of a continental... More

OK for a one night stay. The shower drained so slow only one person could take a shower in the morning and one at night. Bathroom door would not shut because of toilet hit it. Take your cooler with you because there was no refrigerator.

Hi Daniel G. Sorry about the shower and door. I am going to have to find out what room you were in because all our rooms have refrigerators and microwaves. Would like to see you again, and please call us if you find something wrong. Thank you for the survey, Bob. More

Very clean place to stay while traveling through. Located just off of the main interstate with easy on and off. Pet friendly with plenty of room for my girls to move around. Hotel is located near various restaurants which is a great thing. Felt safe when outside and would definitely stay here again.

I enjoyed everything about the same except the breakfast. I work night audit so maybe I am picky, but it seemed cold to me. Overall, I would definitely stay here. I... More

I was traveling on business and needed lodging. I called at about 9 PM and the staff took my name to reserve one of two rooms left (they are undergoing renovations).
