I was booked here for a week while attending a school on the air force base. The rooms were dated but clean, so that wasn't a big deal. Problem #1 my 0600 showers went from too hot to stand under to very cool constantly. Problem # 2 the second night a group of locals moved in next door (adjoinable rooms)... More

For the price, everything should be better. Room was small. Lousy vanity in the bathroom--women need more shelf space. No shelves in the bathtub. Breakfast had minimal choices but at least they didn't water down the OJ as many do. Sink drain and door latches need maintenance, lubing and cleaning

I have stayed here in the past, still a nice place. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. Close to all of the places that I needed to go.

Overall, not a very clean motel. Shower was not touched the whole time (and did not look like it was even prior to my arrival). Nobody was in the office for check out. Breakfast was provided in the most minimal way possible.

Stayed here while in town for a convention. The property is older but it appeared to be clean and well kept. The rom was clean upon arrival. I arrived shortly after 9:00 P.M. and realized that my T.V. was not working. I called the front desk and within 5 minutes someone was there fixing it. The walls are a bi... More
