The only redeeming qualities for this place is low price and location for truck drivers as it is next to the TA shop. You could see outside past the AC due to a hole in the wall. There was a bad smell through out the second floor. The hall carpet was filthy.

This is by far the worst ever motel that I have ever encountered. It was a late night trip and motel was booked. If we would have known how utterly disgusting this room was we would have forfeited our money and slept in the car. It was a learning experience and I now look at all reviews PRIOR to booking...

There were also dirty towels on the back of the door. Totally unacceptable. There weren't any plugs available to charge even... More

The billboard advertised $34.99, but due to the truckers jamboree the owner jacked the price up to $99.99. We called choice hotels and got our room with the amount of points we would have if the price wasn't inflated. It was close to the truck stop and we wanted a break from the truck. We get to the room and... More

I absolutely cannot believe this is a franchised hotel! Absolutely filthy and disgusting. Arrived fairly late (too tired to keep driving) and was checked in by what looked like a gangster... I was actually afraid to give him my credit card. The sign outside flashed a $39 rate, yet inside they said it was $60 cause I wasn't a trucker.... More

It is also horribly filthy. I am 32 weeks pregnant and had to go to the doctor for small itchy bumps on my... More

The whole place reeks of cigarettes. Every floor needs to be vacuumed. Service was friendly, however.

Pass this one by. This is the WORST place I have ever stayed. Room was filthy, wind blew threw the windows, thermostat would not control the heat (I guess to make up for the wind blowing through the window, something red squirted on the ceiling, bathroom door falling apart and wouldn't close, beds were worn out. We could not wait... More
