It was fine - okay for the price I paid. Breakfast was bagels, English muffin, cold cereal, coffee/juice. Quiet - only 4 customers for the weekend. A little strange that they gave me fresh towels, but didn't make the bed...she might have just forgotten!

The check-in people were friendly! The microwave was broken, but that wasn't too much of a set back. The room was great and I liked it! I don't know exactly why there are so many negative reviews. It was fun!!! It's close to McDonalds and possibly Subway, and an awesome pizza place I don't remember the name of that the... More

Recently stayed at this establishment during a cross country road trip. We picked this place because it was pet and budget friendly. Checkin was fast and the staff was courteous. The room was spacious for two people and a small dog. The room itself was clean but there were a few stains on the sheets nothing major, just ink like... More

Great room, loved the mini fridge and the couch. Stayed halloween weekend and had no problems with the room. Was pleasantly surprised they offered breakfast with choices from cereal to bagels, to fresh waffles. The room was clean and very spacious. Next time we want a night out from kids we will definitely keep this place in mind.

The lobby has a moldy odor, the room had a strong flowery odor. We opened the window (screen torn) but the odor didn't dissipate. They didn't offer another room even though we were the only ones there! We left.

The deskman and handyman were helpful and apologetic, but the elevator was broken, the room door locked us out even when the key slid through with the green light, and the breakfast was tiny. The whole place looked like it used to be a nice hotel, but is now not being kept up enough.

If you need to get off the road because you can't drive any longer, this hotel is worth the small amount they are asking. No frills but clean. Don't expect anything fancy or Egyptian cotton sheets as this is a basic hotel. Not fancy, but clean.

My puppy and I stayed here on a recent road trip from Wyoming to Cape Cod. Klaus and I were met with a smile and checked in without issue. Both the lobby and my room were in great shape and comfortable. If you are traveling with a dog, I recommend this hotel. Although it is a pet-friendly establishment, I couldn’t... More

The hotel had a strange smell as did the rooms. Not a horrible smell, it may have been sanitizer or something. But it reminded me of a nursing home. We visited twice and stayed in two different rooms. We noticed the smell in both. The rooms were clean. There was a pool but it was half drained both times we... More

Bad, bad, bad. A/C not working right, humidity in room was super uncomfortable, sheets were ripped. Funky smell. WiFi didn't work in room. I was unable to sleep, finally gave up, tried to grab coffee and "breakfast" before heading out. Waited on a line for breakfast which was a joke so I passed it up and had to throw away... More
