Very nice, spacious room - clean, very comfy bed, good A/C, everything worked OK. There was plenty of ice. The non-smoking room smelled a little of residual smoke. The Mexican restaurant across the street is good.

I tried to give the place the benefit of the doubt--and by myself I may have gone ahead and stayed the night--but the filthy carpet, the glass door to the room covered by a drape if you want privacy, and the smokey smell that had my young son begging to sleep in the van, compelled us to load our stuff...

The couple at the front desk were very sweet and helpful! The motel is dated but was clean. We had a very comfortable king bed. Our room was on the backside if the motel and was very quiet.The room cost was only $49. Across the street at Super 7 the rooms were almost $60. We were able to have our... More

Run down, worn out carpet and furniture with years of wear. Smelled of smoke even though non-smoking. Refrigerator did not work. Wi-fi internet worked for 5 minutes after 2 hours trying to have firm fix it. Neighborhood noisy and sketchy. This property should never be rated a 2 star.

For $45.00 per night, you get a clean room. However the place needs updating. Some updating has been done, but room is still dark and outdated. Staff was knowledgeable about close restaurants, so they get a bonus point for that. I hate staying at any hotel where the clerks are not able to recommend a dining establishment. All in all...

I expected this place to be a bit dumpy but it wasn't. My room was as nice as the Super 8 next door and totally QUIET! My king bed was as good as beds get - with super-soft sheets! Internet, HBO, Fridge, Micro. No breakfast but who eats that crap at Super 8 anyway? Frozen bagels anyone? I saved $20... More

All hotels were booked for last weekend, or the couple that did have vacancy were $249/night with a two night minimum. Then I happened to call the Big Ten Inn and secured a room for $89 a night! The room was dated yes, but the important thing is it was very clean. The room was also equipped with a small... More

This was a late night check in on a long cross country drive and the goal was basic bed and shower. This is exactly what I got. The property isn't pretty and is actually a little tired with well worn carpet, a musty smell and some holes in the sheets. That said, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable,... More
