As I have traveled non-stop throughout the USA for weeks on a tight budget, I have have stayed in some real dives. When driving through LA I booked online 2 hours prior to my arrival. When I walked in the door I was greeted kindly by a young man who provided information and even offered snacks since I arrived at... More

Checked in and received a 2nd floor room. Motel looked fairly empty, but looked like renovations were in progress. Room was clean, no smells and bed was very comfortable. Area was quiet with several nearby restaurants, including Cracker Barrel. Refrigerator and microwave worked fine. Area had received several heavy storms recently, so a soft spot and stain was starting on... More

Me and my wife checked into the motel and when we got in the room we were disgusted. First the lamp didn't work, the refrigerator didn't work and the floor needed vacuuming. I called the front desk but was told there wasn't anyone in maintenance who could come bring us a lightbulb or look at the refrigerator. The bed was... More

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!

We stayed here 2 nights during a 2 week trip to Florida. We travel a lot. There were no cups in the room, and no clock. A lamp next to the bed was missing a bulb. There was no ice available - the ice machine was broke and I had to go next door to the Best Western and bum... More

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.
