A few friends and I chose to stay here as a low cost option on a trip and because the reviews were so good. When we arrived at the lodge our room given to us had no fridge (which we needed) so we requested a new one. The next room given to us had someone's things in it, so we... More

Check in was smooth, the attendant was a little overwhelmed that he was short on staff...But let me know if I needed anything that he would take care of it. The room smelled neutral which was great being a non smoker. However there was balls of shaven human hair on the floor in front of the mirror! The bathroom was... More

There was a mixup on my reservation and I was charged for a week even though I didn't stay. The manager called me and asked of I was going to check in because my credit card had been charged. I explained that I canceled already and she investigated and returned my $$. Excellent job!

A weekend getaway with my son. Overall it was a nice room, toilet kept stopping, two maids was smoking a dirty cigarette in another room. Didnt get towels for almost two hours and my room didnt get serviced until I personally asked... Great location with poor service.

I saw bad reviews here but i guess it was with previous management. The new management staff was helpful in providing me a room with a fridge and ensuring sll was fone with my room. As other motels of the same price, it would need some minor renovations but room was clean, bed confortable and free continental breakfast. I would... More

The continental breakfast had a lot more to offer than last time too. The price was right and the room was clean, the wi-fi was super fast, and I had a chance to wash a load... More
