Very friendly staff - I was the last guest to arrive and they waited for me - were extremely welcoming. Room was well-equipped and clean. The night staff was very helpful with the TV controls which were challenging for my lack of technical abilities. Breakfast was more than adequate and management helpful. I lost a travel document in my car... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by the very large rooms, extremely comfortable beds and the room amenities. The hot breakfast was great and the highlight was being served by Dave in the breakfast room. Truly a gem of a place.

Spent 2 nights here with my wife. Was very comfortable and clean. The a/c was very noisy but tolerable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. However the free breakfast was marginal as the waffle maker was broke and the hot foods were empty due to everyone wanting breakfast at the same time. I would stay again though.

If you have a problem with this motel that requires discussion with a decision maker who can offer an effective remedy, this is not the motel for you. I am disabled, and found out there is no wheeled cart to handle my bags. The front desk knew the internet was down before I checked in and failed to inform me... More

Very attractive and up-to-date. The service was wonderful, especially regarding the morning breakfast! The gentleman, who was in charge, which we assume was the manager, could not do enough for his patrons! Even down to providing some candy to start out your day! He knows how to do things right. We are stopping again on our way back through- Cannot... More

Just off 95, a little noisy outside but quiet inside. Our room was right against the off ramp and the highway and noise was well subdued. Very clean and friendly staff. Plenty area food and drink within walking distance.

Mr D., The words that you have expressed about Ivey's are greatly appreciated, Thank you. When the folks that built the motel wanted to just insulate it then side it told us their plans we told them NO. We had the guest in mind and told them that the walls between rooms and the outdoors had to be soundproof. They... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review Of Ivey's It is always an honor to try to let a guest check-in when the arrive. Sometimes that doesn't always happen as check-out is 11:00 and during the summer it is difficult at times. We have installed a new coffee maker and hoping that our new system provides a better start to... More

Lovely staff, Sheri and Ken bent over backwards in O'Kelly's and Dave was super friendly at breakfast. It's hard to beat Ken's food! The room was excellent, large, clean and nicely arranged. I would definitely stop here whenever I'm in the area.

We often stay here when travelling south from our home in Canada. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable with fridge, microwave and large flat screen tv. I particularly like the fact that there is a large floor space since this allows me to do the series of stretching exercises that I need to do unwind after a long day's... More
