We stayed there to take a break from the long journey. It is an OK place if you are used to extended stay. There is a kitchenette which we found it to be useful because the location is not great to go out and eat. A light breakfast is served.

Stayed here while in town for one night for business. We had to wait for over a half hour for someone to get to the front desk to check us in and at night there is no one and I mean no one at the hotel!

Terrible place to stay. No room service. I had to take my dirty towels to the front desk to get fresh towels. There were spider webs in the corners of the room and ants in the room. The one chair in the room had a broken arm. The place advertises a kitchen, however, if you want any pots, pans, coffee... More

First time booking this hotel. Went through Hotwire which was my first mistake. The front desk staff were apathetic and the lobby carried a faint unrecognizable stench. In a classic bait and switch, we were placed in a smoking room after requesting a non-smoking. The room was filthy and the floor of the kitchenette was covered in water leaking from... More

I've stayed here several times. It's nothing fancy and could maybe use a little updating but I love the location, large rooms and kitchen area. The staff is always very friendly. I did hear a lot of traffic noise from the interstate this time. But that's my only issue.

They have it together with there new manager. What ever you need they have it. The full size frig and stove top is great. I stayed two months and always felt safe. I am a woman staying by myself, so that is important. The price is right for short or long term stays.

I did not have the same experience as the other people. This is a very basic and older motel but I gave it five stars because it was good value - $58 a night for a queen non-smoking room on the ground floor and very affordable for a Senior citizen with limited funds. There was no odor in the room... More

Was not impressed with this hotel. Our room had a foul odor for the moment we opened the door that even a candle couldn't hide. Very dated interior, poor lighting in the bathroom. The grab and go breakfast was a few pieces of fruit and granola bars. I'd rather go to a gas station. For $70 a night, I was... More

Now this chain of hotel properties is of course for those in a city for a while. I think it caters mostly to workers more so than the suit and tie crowd. We check in at the rather crappy front desk and get on the elevator. Good grief it has more cig. smoke than anywhere else. Of course they only... More
