We stayed one night. The motel is old, but it is clean, well lit, and had no odors. Our room was fresh, and complete. The staff was very friendly, and courteous, and even the maintenance person who I asked for directions was very nice and friendly. We didn't use it but I checked out the pool, and it was clean...

Staff was very friendly. Visited with my 11 year old daughter, never felt threatened. Hotel is certainly better maintained than it used to be, but they still need some work. All in all ok for the price, but not a hidden bargain jewel. Good place on a budget though.

Room was dirty sheets were filthy I had to sleep on top of my coat. Price was low but not worth the uncomfortness if that's a word. Make this your last option. The room was so cold seems like the heat never came on. I wouldn't go back to this place ever.

Too late to change we did stay, but this is a run down dump. Cigarette smell made me think I was smoking. Unidentifiable stuff stuck in the sink. Temp controls made it hot or cold. Shower stained. Paint pealing off walls. Almost no one staying there (empty feeling made it feel unsafe). Parking lot was not plowed (snow). Yuck!! Not... More

This place was nasty - I should have read the reviews - but it was late, we were tired , it's pet-friendly. The pets loved it - they found all sorts of food on the floor. The mattress was poor, blankets dirty, spread and carpets icky. Generally not clean or well-maintained. As we were leaving we met another irate customer... More

Let's start with the door. All scarred up with weather stripping coming off of it. Once inside, the carpeting is disgusting. The floor is all bumpy so you constantly trip just walking around. The bedding should be burned. The sheets were gray and paper thin. The blanket had rips and cigarette burns in it. The sink was all crackled. The... More

This is a motel where transient workers stay on a weekly basis. A group of workers were hanging out in the parking lot outside their rooms and stared us down as we arrived. The motel looked run down and dirty, the type of place that would rent rooms by the hour. We had reservations, but we left before checking in... More
