This place needs a heavy duty cleaning they should fire whoever inspects the rooms after they are cleaned. I bet the fixtures haven't been dusted in years. It was cheap and a place to sleep and I just give it an o k we did find a cute frog hopping around outside in the grass so that was nice

My daughters and I stopped only because we were too sick (severe cold/bronchitis symptoms) to continue to travel. We were put in a room that was previously (supposedly) smoking. We asked for non-smoking. It was horrible of our respiratory troubles. The air would not work. When we checked out they were aware already. The bathroom fan did not work; this... More

Carpet was filthy, very noisy rooms, good coffee, poor breakfast selections, bed sucked, no way to let the fan on air conditioner run constantly, it cycled constantly, very disturbing when trying to sleep. This facility needs a makeover.

The room was very run down-the vinyl baseboards were peeling off the walls, there were numerous repairs under the sink that were done with no regard to appearance, the bathroom ceiling was cracked and the paint was peeling/hanging down. On a good note the shower had excellent water pressure and the staff was very friendly which is the only reason... More

I'm hoping this motel will be renovated and cleaned up soon. It is in a convenient location off I-75 and COULD be a nice spot to stop along the road with a brand new Appleby's opening up across the street. However, in it's current condition, I can not recommend it. The carpeting was very dirty, the bathroom needed a complete... More

On the bright side - the bed was comfortable and the staff excellent. On the flip side - old, very dirty, very very dirty (rooms, halls, bathroom in lobby....). Barely passable breakfast bar. Very slow internet. Bed light control was unscrewing a bulb. Noise terrible by transformer - luckily, excellent staff was quick to move us.

It had a wheel chair accessible... More

Stayed here for one night. At check-in and thru my stay the staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel is older and needs some renovating. Pool was closed so that was bummer. Beds were comfortable but room didn't have that clean look or feeling, maybe because of the age of the hotel. Unfortunately, as my kids went to bed there... More
