T.v .microwave. fridge included. Plus for us! Room seemed kinda dingy like they needed updates though..made me feel kinda dingy . lol .... More

This is an older property, well into that downhill slide from "pretty nice" to "cheap". The first impression as you pull into the property is not encouraging, what with the weeds and trash everywhere throughout the parking lot and grounds. But once you get past that, it's really not so bad. The clerk on duty was friendly and helpful, check-in... More

I stayed here twice in 2014, once while traveling east, and I liked it so much I stayed again when traveling through Newton on my return trip home. It is not a fancy place with a pool or bell hops, but the manager, Hema, is terrific and does all she can do to make it a pleasant stay. Ideal for... More

This is not a new motel and it shows some wear but the staff are friendly and the room was big and clean. It's easy to get to, right off the freeway exit and has several fast food and sit down places to eat within walking distance. The cable TV (analog, CRT) worked well which is what I wanted since...

Room was an abomination. Carpet was ripped and stained, sink was falling apart, no shower liner so the room smelled like musty cloth, stains on the pillow cases, chair at the table was falling apart, and here is the topper....there was dried blood on the telephone. Seriously, I have pictures. My car broke down in this town, so I had... More

This motel is about average; it is clean, reasonably priced, easy to find off I-80, and there are some pretty good restaurants nearby. The clerk at reception was friendly, and we could use a coupon from the various coupon books that are available at truck stops and restaurants.

Having been on the road for five weeks, our budget was stretched and we decided to risk a stay here. We concur with previous reviews regarding the perfume-y coverup of cigarette smoke that seems to be imbedded in the facility. It greeted us in the hallway and was present in the room as well. We opened the window and the... More
