Had to stay there because of family illness and funerals! Did not know they were infested with bedbugs! Never, never stay there! Presently having my home treated costing 1300.00. BAD, BAD PLACE TO STAY, Warning warning.

First room had bed bugs. Which he tried to tell me were chiggers or I was allergic to Purex. I saw the bugs. So he said I could have another room and he showed me two other rooms that were supposed to be clean and they were not. Dirty showers and sheets. Finally I got another room that looked clean...

This has been our home away from home while on business in the area. Rooms are very comfortable and clean and the management has been very welcoming and friendly. Would strongly recommend a stay here if in the area. Rates are very reasonable. This is our 2nd stay in the past 2 months.

Very comfortable and safe motel. Having a young child and being a female safety is a priority the staff was very friendly and made sure we were taken care of. Highly recommend this motel to anyone traveling through the area beds were comfortable and rooms were clean.

Using the shower floods the bathroom because the bottom is wooden. Sheets had blood stains and trash when we got here, shrugged & tossed blankets on top of it because we didn't want to deal with it. Now we're told we have to pay $50 to replace & GTFO. (No joke on this one: It looks like the last woman... More

This a a pleasant place, friendly, and clean. Great Rates. Close to work. And they wash your laundry. I would stay here again. The house keepers do a great job, they all make you feel very welcome. And you can even have pets at this place.
