I booked a room more than 3 weeks in advance. The room was totally confirmed, but when I arrived with my friends the guy at the front desk says my reservation is canceled and I need to work through *booking site* to fix it. I called *booking site* and AGAIN confirmed my reservation. The Hitching Post front desk guy didn't... More

Has a pool and wifi (although it was slow). Clean but a bit tired looking. Large room with kitchen area but no plates/cutlery. Fine for one night. People friendly and helpful. Pizza Hut deliver if you fancy a night in. Coffee for two even though four of us staying.

There are "No Smoking" signs posted on every room but the signs don't apply OUTSIDE. Obviously, smoke drifts in through open windows so you can imagine the distinctive scent we found in our room. If cigarette smoke isn't a problem for you, this place isn't that bad.

If you arrive later in the day you get the rooms that truly need repairs and updating. Carpet is worn and many things aren't available. No tissue or extra toilet paper. No mat for stepping out of the shower.

Last minute booking for a last minute getaway. We stayed in a King room with a kitchenette. The room was decently clean, older appliances and loud bathroom lights/fan. For one night, it was fine. The location is good if you have a car. One problem, was that the neighbor next door smoked outside in the morning and since our windows... More

My family and I were very excited to get out of the city for a few days. We booked our stay at hitching post because of the price and the kitchen. Upon arrival I noticed that the hotel was very dated which wouldnt be a problem if it was clean. I always bring my own bedding and when I tried... More

The rooms are spacious and clean. The rooms have privacy. The front entrance has a closed-in patio area that provides privacy. The rooms that have a kitchen are large. The... More

You want a great location, reasonable rate, a clean room and warm welcome from the staff, the Hitching Post Motel is the place! An old fashioned motel with a recent facelift, all you need is the clean bathroom and clean bed (courtesy of the kind cleaning staff). Yes, the furniture and fixtures are dated, yes the walls are thin, yes... More
