I found this motel with a coupon for a reduced rate. An older motel, but it seemed to properly maintained. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet with an in-room safe. The indoor pool was fairly large for a hotel. The free breakfast was the typical motel fare.

I have stayed at this motel since march of this year and the bottom line is that management doesn't care about the customer all they care about is how much they can get right now then move on to the next customer the only good thing about the stay most of the people working there were super nice especially Maggie,Misty,and...

This is an older, but pretty well maintained property. The front desk person was helpful and friendly and the room was very clean. There was an incident with their internet and their called us when it was fixed to make sure we could log on. The pool area is nice but the hot tub is just hot water and nothing... More

We are two Aussies 55 +, here for an overnight stay on a road trip through the South. Checkin was easy, and the girl had a lovely welcoming manner, and a wonderful accent. There was a smokey smell in the foyer but we forgave that. The room was fresh and roomy, and well provided: fridge, microwave and hair dryer, which... More

Wow, the first thing that we noticed about this hotel was the smell! The whole hotel had a very strong, damp musty smell to it. This was most obvious in the lobby, by the pool and then by the ice machine. The smell was so bad that we skipped breakfast. The pool itself was fine but for some reason it... More

Our senior rate of $56 makes this motel the best bargain in a 4 state area and 200 mile radius. The brick construction and layout must have been top notch for the era it was built. While it is an older property it is very well maintained and managed. I would give them a 10 or 5 stars if the... More
