I booked this motel due to looking like the better of the few pet friendly hotels in area..I called and booked a room pretty late on a weekend night and the lady who I spoke with was really friendly and the small pet charge is nothing compared to ones I have paid at other hotels in the cities..staff was really...

We have stayed here 3 times. We liked the price and proximity to SMSU. We were able to walk to our daughter's apartment on campus. The only complaint is our last visit. The loud noise of the shower coming from the next room made it impossible for us to sleep. It was at 6AM, so were awake for the day.... More

My stay was wonderful here at the Traveler's Lodge. First of all, the staff is very pleasant and accommodating to any need you have. If you need extra towels, pillows, blankets, or ice, they seemed very nice and friendly about getting those things as requested in a timely manner. I felt really comfortable and relaxed in my room. I slept... More

My husband and I have traveled all over the world with his job for over 40 years now. We came to Marshall about a year ago and stayed at a local motel. After being there for about 4 months, we decided we needed to find a new place to stay mainly because of the racket during the night time when... More

I am sorry if someone ever has an issue with the internet. There can always be the possibility of an issue with the internet company, but I don't think so that night. We were full that night and had no other internet complaints that night. I actually reset the system to try to enhance the signal strength, so her concerns... More

Wow. I came to Marshall while in transit to my duty station. I decided that I would stay here and I realized it was a terrible mistake. The hotel is nice itself however the people that are staying here are rediculous. So loud and acting like criminals. I couldn't even park my vehicle near my room because these hooligans parked...

There have been National Guard staying here for many years and I expect to see and support them for many years to come. I will not spend much time responding to this review because it is based on Stereotyping and rascism. This guest did not have an incident or any verbal discussions with these guests.

My cousin and I visited the area to attend the Little House on the Prairie Reunion/Pageant weekend. We stayed 2 nights. The reviews we read weren't great but they certainly weren't awful enough to deter us. Our other choices came at a 2 or 3 times higher price tag. Remember - many times, the cheapest option is your worst choice.... More

I am always sorry for any issues that come up with guests. I also apologized to this guest if I was a little defensive at checkout because I am protective of both my Motel and my housekeepers. We have been putting a lot of time and money into improving the motel. I did offer to move this guest the night... More

I'm writing this review as a very disappointed customer. I had read the reviews on hotels in this area, having never been here before, and booked this hotel based on the reviews. I didn't have super high expectations, knowing this was an older motel-style property, but ugh. First, I had reserved my room over a month ago, NON SMOKING, but... More

I will do whatever it takes to help make a guest's stay pleasant and hopefully more than they expected. This review is unfair because it is based on having a smoking room and that is exactly what they reserved ONLINE. I still would have changed it if I could but we were booked that weekend and that is why they... More

Well, This is another could be really cool old school motor lodge. It is not. I asked for nonsmoking room and was put in a room that smells of stale smoke and weed. Fairly certain they are smoking a bit next door. There was partying in the lot from 10 till about 1. The room over all was mostly clean... More

I am sorry if there where issues with this guest's stay but I do believe this was a situation of looking for an upgrade.

We stayed her blast year and we're pleased but this year we pleasantly surprised to see several improvements. New vanity, new sinks and painted accent wall. Very clean & a great mattress. We slept great. Staff was friendly and accommodating . Highly recommend this motel!
