Everyone is so friendly, not fake friendly, the down home friendly you get in rural areas. Wife and I had a king room with plenty of room, a fridge, and a microwave. The bed was a little firm for me but still comfortable. Hot breakfast with at least 5 hot items every day. This is an older hotel, with some... More

Was here for business. It's obvious that the motel is older and attempts at modernizing have been made. My room was clean and the bed comfortable. There was some water damage near the windows, but other than that, it was just average. The rate was reasonable, however, I booked a king room well in advance and was put in a... More

This facility is a little bit run down and dated. The shower would only run very hot or very cold water. There was no adjustment to it. It is in need of a good renovation to bring it up to standards that I can justify as good quality and worthy of a positive evaluation.

I was here for a business trip. The hotel is a little tired, but Tammy at the desk was great. She got us extra hangers, restaurant guide and a smiling friendly face. Free morning breakfast was good. They had a pancake making machine. Tuesday night was a complimentary dinner.

The hotel's location was nice in regards to the University, stores and restaurants, but the hotel was slightly run down. It was clean and the beds were very comfortable, but the front desk staff wasn't friendly. Not sure I'd stay there again unless I had to.

We have stayed here since it was a Holiday Inn. When it became worn and tired we hoped Lamplighters may clean it up. They did update the rooms, but 2 yrs. later they have not been maintained . There was dirt and trash behind our night table. The worst part is the cleanliness of the common areas , pool area... More
