An older motel that is kept very neat and clean. Matt the manager is very friendly and quite helpful as is the other staff members. We were on a business trip and will stay there in the future. Great value for the area!

Not sure if it was their fault or Expedia's, but I was reserved for two rooms even though I only wanted one. They still made me pay for both and were very rude about it, despite the fact that there were multiple vacant rooms that night.

This is a very serviceable property. For a reasonable cost you get a clean room in decent condition with good amenities (Wi-Fi, cable, microwave, fridge, toiletries) in a handy location. If you're expecting The Ritz you'll be disappointed. If you're looking for a good value it can fill the bill.

I have been staying here for two weeks, and will continue to stay here for another 4 or 5 weeks. I had come from Branford Motel, which is disgusting.

Very clean room, comfortable bed. Had issues with the wi-fi which was frustrating, they should invest in a better router or signal booster. Convenient location off highway yet room was quiet. Heater was rather loud. The owner was extremely nice and pleasant. If having the most modern amenities is important to you, this is not the place for you, but... More

Because of my job as a disaster relief worker I go through periods where I spend a lot of time away from home. Finding a hotel that is willing to work with your crazy schedule and isn't trying to take advantage of a time when people are in need is believe it or not difficult. The owner and his staff... More
