This motel has no thrills but is perfect when you are looking for a place to sleep after driving a long ways on 1-94. Its right off the interstate, can see from the road. Clean rooms with microwave & mini-fridge. Soap & shampoo dispensers in shower. Picnic area. They allow dogs for a very small fee. Owners are very friendly.... More

If you are looking for an up-to-date motel with bells and whistles, don't stop here. If you just want a bare-bones, clean room at an affordable price this motel will fit the bill. The owner was gracious and gave us a free upgrade on a slow evening.

We were doing some work in town and just needed a place to sleep. The room was clean. There was a frig and coffee maker in the room. The bed had a pillow top mattress on it. I told the owner that it was kind of soft for me but husband loved it. We did not finish the work that... More

We tried to stay at our usual place in Alexandria, but they were full because of a band festival. So we found this place. It's tired and old, but the rooms are large, the place is clean and it was definitely worth the fee. Our air conditioner was new and worked well (and we needed it!). It has the (now... More

When we arrived at the Inn, I wondered what I had gotten myself into. It looked run-down, but we gave it a chance anyway. The room was very clean and the owners friendly. The beds were comfortable, and the room had a fridge, though we didn't use it. The wifi didn't work at all, and the air conditioner worked, but... More

I was travelling with my 17 year old son to do a college visit about four hours from home. We decided to break up the trip so we wouldn't have to drive the whole eight hours round trip in one day. Without knowing the area, I made a reservation here based on the what the "America's Best Value Inn" website... More
