This hotel is very trucker and pet friendly, truckers, ask for the CDL rate. We requested a room on the back side, it was $5 more, but was well worth it. It's an older property, but very clean. Decent sized room with table and chairs, but tiny, tiny bathroom. No fridge or nuker. The towels were a bit worn and... More

We usually stay here on our way south from Michigan. Convenient location, easy access from freeway. Clean and well managed. Breakfast the usual. Could use some updating, but a fair value for the money.

We recommend this motel...the owner/manager is on site offering helpful advise. He noticed us packing at 5 am and kindly offered coffee which was greatly appreciated...as we would miss breakfast...nice courtesy as he could have ignored us. The coffee started our day smiling...

This hotel was clean and had both indoor and outdoor access to the rooms on the first floor. The breakfast was probably the worst part of the stay. There was a very small variety and most of it was overdone or going stale. I would recommend eating elsewhere.

I travel between Kansas City, MO and Enola, PA at least once per year and sometimes twice. I always stay at this motel as my first night's stop. Remember during the 60's and 70's when family road-trips were all the rage? Remember how you would get to the motel, go swimming in the outdoor pool, then go eat at the... More

Inexpensive, small room and bathroom, with a comfortable bed. I got a good night sleep after a long drive, which was all I was looking for. If you're looking for more, you may be disappointed. The restaurant next door was awful.

We just needed a place to stay while we move to Nevada. Our requirements were met! A place to park the trailer, clean room, simple breakfast and the right price. Nothing fancy! We stayed on the second floor and there are no elevators. That was ok for us. There are doors to the outside and it is a bit noisy... More

Amazing. We will definitely stay here again. We stopped at three different hotels until we found this one. Most were straight up flea bags for the same price. A hotel with truck parking is hard to find but finding one that is nice is awesome. The lady at the front desk (can't remember her name but she had beautiful long... More

Nice hotel, nice amenities. Desk staff was very helpful and courteous. Two restaurants within walking distance, which was nice since we had just had a 13 hour drive. Food at the Raintree Inn was very good and the staff there was excellent also. Had breakfast at the hotel the next morning and the food was well presented, warm/cold as needed... More
