Dear Lynn H., You may not have been made aware but our hotel has contracts with several nationwide contracting and trucking companies. I am sure you saw the numerous work trucks and semi-trucks in the parking lot. Unfortunately, these people work out in the elements. We apologize that you felt uncomfortable that they were dirty from their day of work... More

These people are incredible!!! From the moment I arrived it was obvious they cared. Check in was fast and efficient and the lady at the desk was extremely helpful.

This hotel is a great place to stay, especially for truckers as it is located just off of I-380. The hotel's management and staff are among the best in the hospitality industry. Customer service comes first and each customer is treated like family, as opposed to simply another customer. I recommend this hotel if in the area.

This stay was a stop between cities, while driving. I choose this hotel over others based on reviews... not a good idea. Front desk staff was very friendly, explained how pool was heated, and just how safe it was here, due to them being the preferred hotel for a truck driving school... not sure I needed to know all that...

Clean and quiet. Comfortable bed. Excellent value. Lots of food within walking distance. Inn is 3 floors and has an elevator. The first 2 floors have outdoor hallways but the 3rd floor is all inside - like they added the 3rd floor and elevator afterwards.
