The Motel looks like it is closed when you drive up. Needs paint and updating, SOON ! I like what Motel 6 is doing by the remodels. This one has not been done. HOWEVER, it was clean, very clean. Bed was comfortable. Perhaps we lucked out. The staff is super friendly. My advice would be, check your room out before... More

I went back to front desk and they made mistake but I had to pay $10.00 extra for room that I was promissed in 1st place. So we had to move to a 2nd room. It was getting late at... More

We stayed here on Dec 20-21 of this year. Stayed here while we were vising relatives. This hotel definitely needs major updating. Although the room was shabby it was neat and clean and the beds were quite comfortable. Wifi was TERRIBLE. You had to pay for it. I got it free for 1 night cause I was AARP. It was... More

Phone didn't work, toilet filled completely to rim before flushing. When we told the desk about the phone, were told to jiggle wires and managed to get through to the desk, but got cut off. When we went to the desk, were told that we had tried to call 911, which routes through the office- if that was the case,... More

I did like the big refridge with a large freezer and the microwave was great as well. A funny little old fashion TV but the reception was OK. In all the area seems safe and open so is not a problem and easy access to the highway as well as a Walmart only a short drive along with lots of... More

If this is your way of traveling, this is the place to stay. Cheap, no-frills, clean, and pet-friendly. No extras, no drama. There were some folks yelling in the lot when we arrived, but they finished their business and soon calmed down.

Booked there for one night and got a very good rate. Although we booked a non-smoking room, it smelt a bit of old smoke.. The rest of the room was as we booked it. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. The a/c unit was the most quiet one we had in more than 35 different motels we stayed in... More

we booked a room there because we were on a long trip and would arrive very late and check out early. We were told "all rooms are non smoking". What a lark! The stench of our room was suffocating. The staff said: "I can move you to another room but I cannot guarantee it is gonna be better". We were... More

I'm not kidding. Right outside our door, "How many do you want?" The crack ho' s screamed at the top of their lungs until 3:00AM. The front desk did nothing until I called them. This is a relatively nice part of town. These people imported the crime to give it a more homey feel. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!! Toilet seat... More
