When I booked this hotel, it promised free wifi, a pool, continental breakfast and that children under 15 could stay for free. What I found when I arrived was a room that smelled, I had to pay for my 4 year old to have a bed, and the pool --though there was not clean and the hours that it was... More

First, there was a sort of Bait&Switch -our room was not part of main motel building- but across the parking lot in a detached older bldg. Perhaps they use the old building for folks who reserve thru a hotel bidding... More

Decent hotel in a sleepy college town, or at least it was on the Sunday I was there. Got a little turned around at the 'rotary' and staff couldnt explain directions to the hotel. But once we got there it was a decent room and I had no complaints.

When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly staff, after checking in we had an issue with our tv. After some time the issue was resolved and they gave us another tv. When we checked out he felt sorry for our issue and took off 10% for our inconvenience.
