After being a traveling salesman for 25 years this motel ranks among the worst. The man who checked me in was surly and un-communicative. I should have known when I opened the door what I would find. Dirty room with mold growing on the walls of the bathroom. While I was sleeping nature came to visit in the form of... More

My room is always clean and the water is hot. The heating and cooling system works great. For me, it is a great value for the money. The Inn and Suites is only a mile from town and just a short distance from the interstate.

I decided to give this place a chance even though there were a few bad reviews because the pics looked okay on the website and the location was close to family in town. All I can say is this, when we first walked in I was less than impressed. It was like walking in to a retirement home from the... More

I was traveling through the area and got caught in a blizzard that closed nearby Interstate 80. I probably would have been better off sleeping in the car and taking my chances. This is a horrible flea bag hotel. The owner is rude. The rooms are awful and the so called breakfast I would not have feed to a wild... More

We arrived and the owner came out of his apartment to check us in. He looked as if we were a bother to him or we were interrupting something. After we got checked in we went to our room it was 96 outside and the room was hotter! I started the ac and went to the bathroom on the ledge... More

I paid only $40, and got a safe and quiet place to sleep. It wasn't a place I'd recommed if you had more money, but for the price you shouldn't expect more. (If you do find more for the price, workers are being mistreated!) Apparently some rooms have been updated per other reviews, but mine was not. Carpet had been... More

This was my family's second time staying at this hotel, the first time being in 2006. I guess with the passage of time, we forgot about our first experience. But at $55/night versus $80+/night at Settle Inn and Suites, we were opting to save money. First off, the cats that frequent the parking lot give the area a rather unpleasant... More

Nice modestly-priced motel. Very clean and entire motel has been updated. Carpet is new and the rooms are spacious, including a small refrigerator, coffeemaker, microwave and free Wi-Fi in each room. The continental breakfast is cold cereal, box donuts and toast, but adequate. The motel owner is friendly and lives on the premise.l Very quiet setting.

So many roadside hotels these days have a weird stale odor in all the rooms and hallways. Not so with this great hotel. The rooms were clean and smelled fresh. The beds were comfortable, the staff were very friendly. I was told by some folks in town that they got new management about a year ago so it seems like... More

Beds were lined with plastic, owner was rude and obnoxious, so-called breakfast was stale cereal, yesterday's coffee, and mini donuts. I will say the rooms were huge but offered nothing for comfort.
