It's an older motel, located about half a mile south of I-80 in a commercial area of town. Mediocre rooms. No security. Parking lot was poorly lit. Main lobby is in lock-down mode, but the doors on the side of the building leading to the guest rooms are left unlocked. No key required, so criminals have easy access to guest... More

I found the staff and hotel to be very nice! And the room was very clean and reasonably priced. Was there 2 nights and even left a tip for the maid! Close to a casino added to the attraction for me. Will stay there again!

This is strictly a budget-minded decision to stay here. You get a room, a parking lot, and some good wholesome restaurants nearby. I chose a non-smoking room but the hallways and lobby reek of stale smoke. My room fortunately doesn't. Thanks for the sole pleasure. The motel is located at a busy intersection, sharing the common parking lot with the... More

There is a Village Inn restaurant right across the parking lot that serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. And I would like to give a shout out to the lady working the... More

Spread was wholly, but worst of all--checking out after 11:00 p.m. Had a family emergency and had to leave. Never been to a motel where you can't get to the lobby after 11:00 p.m. I use a can, was on the second floor and who I tried to get into the lobby, carrying luggage, the door to the lobby was...

We were in town for a family funeral. Bums passed out in the parking lot. Beds were uncomfortable. Ice machine was perpetually broken. Rates were too high. Hotel was dirty. No evidence of amenities. Desk clerk was an unwelcoming control freak. We switched hotels the next night. Got better beds, a warmer welcome, a working ice machine and lower rates.

Have stayed all over the country, this place is a 30 dollar room they want 55 for. Was very upset and will never go back. The floors are dirty and this place smells bad. Anyone who has to travel often will know
