Would like to Commend the staff at Mt. Vernon for accommodating our needs as customers. We had a great room. It was peaceful and quiet as we enjoyed our stay. Loved having the refrigerator in the room to keep our drinks cold! Thank you, we will be back!!

Our connection comes from AT&T and we happen to be far away from their central hub. I've called and spoken with them about latency issues and they have done all they... More

Sorry you had a bad experience, will fix the rates posted, and the rooms do come with soap and it is available at the front desk. We have pest control with Eco Lab glad you were able to find something entertaining on TV. Give us another chance we have many remodeled rooms that are available with a credit card authorization.

Let me put it to you this way: Roaches, bedbugs, hookers, swingers, drug addicts, and gang bangers. DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILDREN. Any questions?

Although there customer service was great, the motel is dated and OLD. It is in desperate need of a remodel. The owners are very nice. My family was sickened with the condition of the room. Hate to leave the negative review because they were so nice. But traveler beware...
