We arrived a few hours before check-in and didn't know what to do. They allowed us to check-in about an hour later and we were thrilled! Everyone that we came into contact with was absolutely wonderful. The only downside, well few, was that the rooms are dated, no electronic entry - need a key and you only get 1 so... More

I booked this place online and paid for the first night. Got there and finished paying for two nights, went to the room and it was horrible! We were there a matter of minutes, I went to the front desk and the guy said it was against policy to give a refund. All I wanted was the $83.50 I just... More

Stayed for three nights as part of a big group of 13 during memorial day weekend. This motel is easy to find, well situated and satisfactory. The towels are thin and the mattresses left us a bit sore in the morning, but it was clean and quiet and the front desk staff was super kind and helpful. There's wi-fi in... More

We've stayed here three times. 2001, 2003 and 2012. First two times were great and we got a great deal for the week (7 days - about $300 each time). The last time we only stayed two days which was about $250. We obviously loved the place which was why we kept coming back. The staff even remembered us the... More

The hotel staff get an A+ for friendliness. Unfortunately though, this hotel is in sad need of repairs and updating. Moldy bathrooms, paneled walls, tattered dresser, and ripped carpeting were the bad points. The good points? Working air conditioner, hot showers, timely maid service, and proximity to fun places! NO elevator.

These people are basically stealing your money!! their cancellation policy is completely unclear and i think whoever answers the phones just makes crap up. I had a reservation for 2 nights (friday and Saturday) on Thursday night I called saying I no longer needed Saturday night. The girl/"manager" said that i either had to pay for the whole weekend-even if... More

This motel was not the best of places, but I did not mind because I was barely in the room. When I arrived, the front desk was very friendly and helpful. However the rooms were not up to par. I found long black strands of hair in the ONLY two dresser drawers, hair and mold around the toilet, and none... More

Run down, dirty, scarey and a scam. I could not even spend five minutes in the room. There was no secure lock on the door, holes in what was qualified for their sheets on the bed, puddles in the hallway and a nonfunctional bathroom. We could not even talk to a manager because he was "out of town" Oh and... More

Little did I know the management had been switched. As with any hotel you sign a contract before staying and pay a security deposit incase any damage to... More
