This was my first visit to this motel and only my second to an Americas Best and I was well pleased. Would definitely stay here again. I was there for a family funeral and needed to check in a little early. The staff was very friendly and helpful in meeting my needs. The price was good, room clean, easily accessible,... More

Typical budget hotel. Good rate, reasonably clean, easy to find. Several restraunts near. Room was quiet even though near the highway. Had fridge, microwave, coffee pot and coffee, iron and board. A/C worked well and not too loud. Breakfast was donuts, ceral, toast. Check in was friendly. Wanted a single non smoking room but didn't have any. Gave me a... More

The rooms are small, the front desk clerk was not very friendly, one of the washcloths had black hair on it, the tv's need to be updated and the free wifi ( which actually they boast free high speed internet) was non existent. Will never stay at another of their hotels and will not recommend to anyone.

I had a reservation, but we got there a little later in the evening, so got an upstairs room, which is hard for me to go up stairs with my arthritic knees. Rooms were clean, but mattresses were very hard. The wate was nasty, yellowish in color, tub slippery and slow to drain. Commode didn't want to flush properly either.... More

I was SO disappointed. I booked for first weekend in may because they had a pool. Well- no pool- even though they assured us the pool would be ready. There's another hotel near by. Better value/nice rooms but no pool. Should have stayed there. Service was ok. Room was TINY! Funny smell in rooms. Not newly renovated. VERY disappointing. Not... More

Was leery about staying in any of this chain's properties as all that I've looked at were not rated very highly. Needed to stay a night on my way to Dallas with a dog, so decided to risk it as Trip Advisor had good ratings for this property. I was not disappointed. The front desk at check in and check... More

The rooms were just okay. This is an old hotel. The front desk was very friendly. Breakfast was a joke, nothing worth eating. I was thankful for the coffee. We only spent one night, which I was thankful for. The room was very small.

The room was very nice. Clean and fresh. The only thing that I had any issues with was getting connected to the wifi. Would stay here again if I am in the area. The hotel is older but the rooms are current and comfortable.
