We were pleasantly surprised to find such a very clean, spacious room awaiting us. Much to our satisfaction we had a small refrigerator so we could freeze ice and cool food items to pack for our last leg of our trip home. The mattress was perfectly comfortable. The young lady that checked us in was very pleasant and friendly as... More

Clean, courteous, and simple. The hotel is old for sure, but the beds and noise abatement is good. I think for the price this is a very adequate stop in the middle of the state. it was a one night stay and worked out just fine.

Reservation asked for any specials ----told we got it--- requested refrigerator ---said all rooms had them. Checked in ---told next building at end ----looked like a parking lot for trucks---a tacky white fence was around what turned out to be a small pool in desperate need of skimming and one cheap plastic chair ---- didn't use it ) Noticed immediately...

We stayed here with our 3 daughters for one night on our way to Iowa. Very basic, no frills but very clean. Pool is outside and we had to walk across the parking lot to get there from our room. Continental breakfast was adequate.

We were so happy the inn accepted our 3 little doggies and did not charge us a fortune for them to stay. After reading the... More

I stayed here last year and staying again this year. We stopped last year on our way to Branson and it was great! Extremely clean room, wonderful, friendly front desk and good Wi-Fi connection. The breakfast was a pretty average continental breakfast, nothing fantastic. But if you are looking for a clean, clean, clean room this is it! A really... More

Very nice and clean and quiet. We stayed overnight after touring in the area. The shower was AWESOME. The breakfast was a lovely surprise--wasn't expecting anything but coffee, at the price we were paying, so having the continental breakfast was a treat. Desk and other staff were very courteous. Will be sure to stay here again if we return to... More

The hallways reeked of marijuana and other guests were loud. Not the motels fault but an indication of who stays here. The beds were old, the pillows flat. The bathroom was small and had the toilet and sink in the room with the shower instead of outside the door like most. The room had a fridge and microwave. The tv... More
