Average and overpriced for where it is. There isn't a whole lot in town, super 8 next door, from the reviews I decided to select this one. Next time I will pass and plan better to get to the next town.

This is a local hotel that has nice big rooms and a good hot breakfast a good deal for the price. There is also a good Mexican restaurant next door and a good cafe downtown. Hotel could use a little freshening up but still looks nice. Bed was good.

Not too many places to choose from in the area. Wanted to go to the casino and their hotel didn't take pets so we ended up here. Was clean. Somewhat worn. Would stay again. For a motel breakfast the food was great! Very nice older lady taking care of the breakfast. Sorry I didn't get her name so I could... More

My husband and I frequent this hotel for couple getaways. The hotel is quiet, the suites are so much fun. This is one way to pamper ourselves. We have never stayed in a regular room or using the breakfast service but LOVE the suites. They have specials so make sure to check their web site for a GREAT deal.

Every once in a while we like to just get away to relax and slow down. Read some positive reviews on Trip Advisor and thought Designer Inn would be perfect. Wrong. My guess is that they spend most of their time and effort on their suites, because our rooms (they moved us after the first one had coffee rings and... More

The theme rooms are fantastic! We stayed for two nights in the Rainforest room - it was like being at Disneyland, with a bit of an adult flair; lots of mirrors everywhere, palm trees throughout the room and fronds from the ceiling, and the attention to detail reproducing the theme was comprehensive and thorough, even down to the color of...

They were running a special that allowed us to receive a pretty good rate so it was worth it. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful (check in girl was new, so we had a couple... More
