Our two nite stay was for visiting the Casino. The room was clean, the staff was nice, and the bed was very comfortable. I have back pain and when I woke up both mornings my back didn't hurt like it normally does. It had a TV, microwave, and small refg. It's not a luxury hotel so you can't expect everything... More

Hotel was very run down and the room had a bad odor. The sheets and towels were clean and it was convenient to several restaurants, but very over priced. What they called breakfast was a bowl of cereal. Would not stay there again.

Hotel staff helpful in accommodating us with 2 rooms, one with handicap facilities, and the other room a few doors down. Rooms could use a good scrubbing and/or fresh coat of paint on the walls; otherwise surfaces had been cleaned. Dead bugs in the ceiling light fixture in the bathroom. Neither of the wall plugs on either side of the... More

We scheduled last minute and this was last available site. It was old, but maybe clean. restroom was ok. Took my own sheets. Bad smell like they tried to mask smoking, but I got some candles to change the atmosphere.. Made the best of it. Will definately reserve rooms at casino next time as this was last minute option.

We stayed at this motel during a trip to the casino. The bed was ok, not hard like some. We arived late the first night abd went straight to bed. The next evening we discovered the air conditioner didn't work. The toilet didn't flush the contents. One of the less expensive options in town but with tax and all was... More

The place is no longer new, but it was clean. The bathroom was acceptable, the bed was adequate, sheets and towels were clean and fresh. The coffee was not so great, but what can you expect. Best to use a hotel on line site to book, do not walk in. The wifi was present but weak, but it was free... More

I stayed at this little motel when it first opened under its original owner and it was perfect, clean and cheap. Well, now it is none of the above, as it is really showing signs of wear throughout the property and the price was almost $80 ($25 higher than my initial visit, although I was a walk-in this time). I... More

This establishment now goes by the name American Inn of Kinder. The dispute is regarding their poor quality and lack of cleanliness on dec 17,2011. As I drove into the parking lot - I noticed two adolescents exchanging money for something in a Baggie. I hesitated to get out of my car - they then yelled profanities and ran off.... More

Literally, the place smells like fish. The staff is not friendly and they tried to raise the rates when I checked in. Don't stay here
