Beware! This is a terrible Hotel with even worse management. The owner is argumentative, intimidating, rude and fraudulent. Please don't chance it by staying here. The owner lied, reported false information and applied charges fraudulent charges to my card. He scared me and my kids . Worst hotel experience ever. Marion has alot of nice hotels and this just isn't... More

What my kids loved about this place was the pool and spa. The pool has a deep end as well as a shallow end, and it is indoors--right next to the spa, which was HOT and soothing. Both were very clean. They were updating the day we were there, putting in new refrigerators. We had the old fridge, which worked... More

Can not believe this is a Choice Inns motel. DUMP. Dirty, poorly lighted, but worst of all the toilet from the room above was leaking into the bathroom of the room we stayed. I was on the ground floor and there were obvious signs on the bathroom ceiling that there had been leaks for some while. After a hour or... More

I was traveling and had to book this hotel by phone. When I arrived, I almost decided to go elsewhere but seeing it was a confirmed reservation, I didn't want to lose the money. The A/C was backed into at the beginning of the summer so the place was hot. The A/C worked well in the room though. The room... More

This hotel was a dump. The AC barely worked. We stayed at this motel so we could check out the Saturday night races. When I went to get ice there was a long line of ants coming from the food vending machine. They were every where. The corners of the rooms were dirty. We went on to the races and... More

The rooms are very out dated with small bathrooms. I went to the front desk to tell them that we had a extra child with us. The owner then charged me another $5 for that child. I work at Choice Motel and kids under 16 stay free. This was my first red flag. Then the OWNER tells me I am... More

I was supposed to stay at this hotel with my children's cheerleading squad from Missouri. I had two rooms booked and the party from the first room arrived prior to us. I received a phone call to let me know there was a mix up with our reservation, we were supposed to have adjoining rooms and queens size beds. When... More

We often stay in budget hotels, so we are familiar with 'no frills' accommodations. However, this place was very noisy throughout the night, with creaky floors above us. Were the people moving furniture? Just sit down and watch TV! What were they doing walking around until 2 am? Also, we were charged extra for our dog while smokers were not... More
