I made my reservation over two months in advance for a king size room in their new section. I confirmed it about two weeks ago. Upon arrival I was given a key to a room with two double beds. Upon questioning this I was simply told that the clerk must have made a mistake and they were sorry. No offer... More

We spent roughly 125 on a room here than the next day in Pennsylvania we got a room at the Holiday Inn for 109. The holiday inn was like the ritz compared to this place. Quite outdated and the room had water stains on the ceiling with a ridiculous looking patch job on the ceiling. embarrassing. the tv was in... More

Lobby stinks horribly and rooms are not much better. Man at front desk has "never seen any of the rooms". All this for over $100. Go someplace else please. I always check first but the sign says Inn and Suites? They have got to be able to do better than this. kidding.

I was greeted by a very friendly staff that assigned us a room around a bunch of construction workers. While the workers were very polite, my wife wanted a room in a more private area. The staff was very understanding and gave us another room with no problem. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the continental breakfast... More

Surveyed the facility for an upcoming event in town. Appears the facility will meet banquet and lodging needs. Will also be using the pool area for gatherings, luncheon and entertainment for the wives while we are meeting.

This is the first time that I have stayed here. Love the Downunder Bar, it has a lot of room with a little dance floor and two pool tables. They also have a menu with some really good choices on it. Took Grandson there for some pool time. Love the new pool, the water was a little cool, but it... More

The staff was great, room was huge BUT there was no shower head in the shower! My husband said it was like taking a shower with a firehose. And due to the location it was extremely noisy. Seems every 18 wheeler in the state went by the hotel that night. If they would fix the shower by adding a shower... More

We were made to feel incredibly welcome right from the first step into the reception area. Wonderfully helpful and friendly, very down-to-earth. The room itself was average, but nothing wrong with it. The beds were comfortable, and it was quiet at night for sleeping. We were fairly close to the pool as well, which was a little old but fairly... More

I've stayed here for 4 weeks interspersed during the summer and fall of 2014. The owners care a lot about the facility; the rooms are clean and the bathrooms are clean too. The carpets are new and the facility has a clean look and smell. The WiFi is excellent at all times of the day/evening. The windows open for fresh... More
