The rooms are small and the worn out rocker chair had completely open spots of the fabric. The ventilator in the bathroom was so loud that you had to raise the volume on the TV set, the toilet was wobbly and toilet flushing from upstairs gave the impression that there was something wrong in your bathroom. The breakfast was a... More

Our stay was very enjoyable. Average hotel facilities but super friendly staff. The room was clean. Flat screen TV was huge. Breakfast selection was adequate. Very reasonable price. Nice location next to the interstate and a variety of amenities. Will plan to stay again.

I have stayed here twice, for a total of five nights. I think I paid for six nights due to the "mix up" where they lost my reservation online and could not use my email confirmation. I feel confident in my assessment of the poor value. The first room had a saggy pillowtop bed and a leaky faucet as well... More

I wanted to try this out for myself, even though I had read the reviews. As a drilling reservist (National Guard), I don't get reimbursed for my hotel, so I decided to try and save a little bit of money this time - bad move.

Actually had to walk out of this place it was that bad. We had driven 600 miles and needed a couple hours sleep......couldn't do it.
