Not a bad place but be cautious when making reservations. THey want a 24 hour advance in case you need to cancel. Ridiculous. Almost all places only need cancellations before 6pm. Rooms were decent but the Internet service was beyond horrible. All in all, nothing to write home about.

Ivey's is a clean facility with great staff. Jackie in the Pub was extremely nice and helpful about the local restaurants. Free wifi is always a bonus. It's a spot my father always uses on his way to Canada from Massachusetts. Good experience, overall.

Don't miss the opportunity to stay here! The friendly welcome back by Stacey at the desk and the warm soup and biscuit when I arrived was perfect after a long drive.

My husband and I stayed only one night. We were pleasantly surprised by the squeeky clean spacious room. The bedding was clean and fresh. the bathroom had an oversize shower and thick towels. We were very comfortable and will stay here whenever we are in the area.

If you are looking for a quiet and clean overnight spot, this is a good one. The rooms have microwave and minibar for your convenience. The hotel is located right off the Interstate and is close to several dining options. Cheap, clean, and comfy.
