Stay away! Blood on one of the bedspreads! Carpet dirty, old coffee in lobby. The place was generally creepy. There were shady looking people hanging around outside. The lady brought me new sheets and bedspread but I have back problems and can't make a bed. My son threw the bedspread in a corner. Towels were smaller and rough. One of... More

Stayed one night. Desk Clerks both checking in and out were very courteous and helpful. The room was very clean with the exception of the two dead bugs behind the bathroom door. Sounds bad but it isn't that means that their pest control people are doing their job. If I pass through there again I will definitely stay there. Did... More

Management was friendly. I always ask to see the room before paying so I was going in with the mindset that you get what you pay for. Well, I was impressed with the room. It's not a five star hotel but I felt comfortable staying there with my husband and daughter.

My toilet was clogged. She not only made me come get a plunger but she told me I was going to have to do it! She was not accommodating at all. She was then very rude to be when I told her that I didn't feel like I should have to plunge their toilet. The room carpets are filthy and... More

The room was clean, but only had cups and an ice bucket. You get what you pay for. The entrance drive has potholes and the stairs were rusting. But we were lucky to find anything with the Rolex Thing going on. Wi-Fi is extra per day. Good Wi-Fi is more expensive. Don't pay it. Nip over to Starbucks across Elkhorn... More

This motel is in bad need of updating to modern time. Upon check in, I noticed that I had to pay for wi-fi, which in this day and time, is considered a standard amenity with any motel room. The coffee and microwave in the entrance should have been my next clue. Room had no coffee pot, no refrigerator, a 1970'ish... More

The bathroom was horrible and outdated. No coffee pot,microwave or ref.for some medicane we had. And being their to go to Shriner's hospital we needed those.and i was never told there wasn't or that it could be gotten for a charge. Overall I wasn't happy. I believe a refund or something I needed and staff was very rude and disrespectable.
