We were only here overnite and had no problems, the staff was very friendly and I would agree with another reviewer that it needs an upgrade. One other thing is road noise. Make sure you ask for a room away from highway noise..

I am a Choice Hotel member and booked this hotel through them. We frequent DM several times a year and thought we would try this hotel. What a place!! The best thing I can say is that the staff was friendly. That's where it ends. From what we saw the whole place is in desperate need of an update. Our... More

This was the most uncomfortable mattress, I think I have ever slept on! Sunk into a pit and felt springs, when I moved to the middle, I almost felt like I was teetering! If you are under 5'6" tall, you may fit under the shower head. Most of the mold in the shower was higher up, but some was in... More

We had a good stay here on Saturday night. It is more than ample unless you are looking for a big name hotel and a bigger bill! It is close to eating places and close to the Interstate I-80 so we could jump back on it the next morning and be on our way! Breakfast was o.k., nothing superior, but... More

This place needs some serious work. I will never stay here again. I knew what it was going to be like from the moment we checked in. I do not believe in credit cards and told the GM as such. I said I don't believe in them and he said they don't believe in renting to those without. Seriously? So... More

This hotel came in handy when we needed somewhere to sleep and fast. Overall the room was spacious and clean, however the hotel is old and the upholstery and carpet needs to be replaced. The manager was very nice and accommodating to our needs. I would recommend this hotel to friends with a caution that it is an older hotel.

We were very pleased with this motel. It is reasonably priced, right off the highway, and the rooms are big, clean and comfy. The general manager is a very nice person. Perfect for a one night stay. There are other motels in the same area for more money, but we didn't need the extra amenities and chose not to spend... More

This hotel is great for a quick stop over. It needs some care but they are still working on it. Michael the General Manager could not do enough for us. We were allowed to park our motorcycles under the canopy because of the threat of rain overnight. I asked for nice quiet room, it was provided without hesitation. They have... More

Bathroom had peeling paint like product all over tub. Pool was nice. Got locked out of our room when lock on door battery went dead and maintenance had to recode the door. But they had fixed within 15-20 min. Breakfast was limited but decent.

Booked 4 rooms and checked in very late. Saw stairs were dirty going to room and did not think much about that. Climbed into bed and was out. In the morning when I went to pick up my phone bugs were crawling on it. Went into the bathroom and mold was in the shower. Called front desk, talked to Mary... More
