Lobby was clean. Front desk person was nice. Room was clean and a decent. Sink was outside the bathroom which was ok but the bathroom was kind of small. Indoor pool was nice for my teenager but a bit cold for us "older" folks. Downside was that there was no fridge or microwave provided unless you wanted to pay extra.... More

we booked a king room with the Jacuzzi and a kitchenette. Called 5 minutes after booking to make sure they had the reservation, and found out that the room we booked that specifically said kitchenette included did not have a kitchenette, so we asked to cancel or move to a room that had one as we needed it because we...

We stopped in for a night during a drive across the country. The price wasn't great for what it was offering. It was clean, but the desk clerk was rude when we came in. The furniture in the room looked like it had been obtained from a thrift shop. The indoor pool was "being painted", but when we called the... More

The hotel was very easy to find since it is conveniently located right off 57. The staff there was super polite and very accommodating. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. Will be staying again next time I'm in town.

We stayed here this week. Other than having difficulty finding the place, it was fine. The franchise should consider better signage and lighting outside for guests arriving late. Breakfast was a 5 on a scale of 10. It's OK.

My family and I stayed last weekend for a family party. The rooms were very clean and have been updated recently. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. It was also very easy to find and was in a good area. Will recommend to everyone I know going to the area!

I stayed here the evening of March 1, 2014. The hotel was clean and the staff welcoming. The pool area was nice, though I didn't use it. There were many families there that weekend, but once 10 p.m. rolled around, I didn't hear another soul. Thanks for a great stay!

Convenient location just off the expressway, it was easy to find and there's a Wendy's and Subway right next door. $68 for a spacious room was a good deal. Somewhat dated decor, a bit musty, and there was some peeling wallpaper in the bathroom, but the room was clean. The bed wasn't the most comfortable but we got a good... More

Stayed here after arriving into town shortly before midnight, just wanted to get off the highway after a long day of driving. Last minute choice that thought us to take the time to seek what else is available. Dated, musky rooms. Old furnishings, old tv, loud bathroom fan. Forget about breakfast...best to skip it and go to the local fast... More
