We came here as a family all the way from Indiana to celebrate the 4th. We were greeted at the motel with a horrid smell of meat coming from the unclean fridge in our room. We couldn't even bathe our 1&4 year old children due to the excessive amount of mold in the tub. The floor was covered in stains... More

Dirty place! Poor English and unfriendly service. Stay at Super 8 or in another town. You'd be better off staying in your car. This is a hotel for local drug users and teen parties, not a good place to try to sleep at night.

This is a great, old fashioned, motel. Has a large grassy area in front with picnic tables and grills, and behind it is a city park with lake, playgrounds, picnic areas, and camping. A beautiful place to stay as a group. We used it for our wedding guests, were able to eat breakfasts together outdoors, played in the parks, wonderful... More

The sign outside of town says one price for a single and that pets were welcome. When I checked in there was no one else at the motel, but they gave me a smoking room, even though I am a non smoker. I was charged double what the sign said plus $10 for my pet. I could not hardly breath... More

I'm not sure what motel the bad reviews stayed at but this place was perfect. Small town motel with friendly staff, clean, quite, great internet, next to a beautiful park and lake. I loved it! The front desk staff was really nice. My car would not start and the front desk guy helped me with a jump. I liked it... More

I called for late check in and couldn't understand the young woman that answered. She was friendly when I arrived but still not understandable. When I went to my room it has to be on the too 10 worst places I have stayed. The hard mattress and flat pillows were the worst and I ended up sleeping in the 1970's... More

Do not let the fancy website of this motel fool you. This motel is a dump. Room was dirty. The towels stunk with odor. I complained 4 times last night about the noisy construction workers in the room next door. The wireless internet is extremely slow. Manager's wife told me they would have coffee at 7AM, went to office in... More

There are way too many choices for hotels within 30 minutes to stay at this hotel. First of all, they tried to charge me twice the price quoted when the room was booked. I went back out to my truck to my phone to show them the price and when I came back in, everything was fine and the price... More

I called ahead and made a reservation with a courteous woman with limited English skills. (Had to repeat numbers and clarify that "September" was the 9th month of the year.) Arrived around 1AM and was greeted by a kind and professional man, put us in a room with no pillowcases, but quickly changed it and we ended up plopping exhausted... More
