We paid $ 102 for a room that was in the $$ budget motel range. Older property in walking distance of restaurants. Our room was tidy and well-supplied, Internet was speedy. Hair dryer worked which tells me housekeeping cared. We were late for breakfast but management left it open for weekends. It was inadequate (no yogurt) but still enough to... More

This was not my idea of a clean comfortable night's stay. The hallway was dark and rug was threadbear, room was not much better. Hotel desk clerk was nice enough to let us view the room before staying, I wanted to leave after but since we had already paid we were stuck. The bathroom was dingy, we left as early... More

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
