My family stayed here for one night. There were holes in the walls, tears in the upholstered chair, the middle blanket on the bed felt rubbery, and the room was very run down. It was very clean and cheap though so we did stay the night. The staff was friendly and the free wi-fi was fast. The room was very... More

I had asked about coffee and it is in the morning. But the receptionist offered to make a fresh pot for me! Laundry is near the office and also opens in the morning. She offered to let me do it if I needed. I feel so welcomed.

Great value for the price. The motel is close to I-35 off Exit 133 and in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms are large and clean with comfortable beds, mini fridge, microwave, AC/heater and LED TV. We like that the room had a power strip to recharge our devices. There was plenty of hot water and good water pressure for a... More

This hotel had all the amenities of a major chain except breakfast. We liked it because you could park in front of your hotel room, it was on the ground floor--no stairs. The air conditioner worked great. The room was cleaner than a lot of the hotels we have stayed in across the country. You couldn't beat the price. Plus,... More

My children and I stayed here on our way across the country. The rooms are spacious, very clean, I felt safe and the owners/hosts are very friendly. I like staying in roadside inns for this reason-the hosts are usually also the owners, cleaners and handymen. They care about every aspect of the place and I like to support that. We... More

How can you beat that. I and my wife carefully searched for bedbugs but thankfully found none. That is a... More
