This is a refurbished Sleep Inn. It is not a great motel. It's not anything more than average. We had a first floor room, accessible. The room is small or feels like it is. AC will freeze you out, so be careful not to set it too low. There is a swimming pool and an exercise room. The bed is... More

Our room was clean and comfortable. Coffee was good. Continental breakfast included crumb cakes, which were very good (and a change of pace from other continental breakfasts). Desk clerks were helpful with finding an address for me.

Admittedly, the room and bed is small, no fridge or microwave and the towels were a bit thin. We had our own breakfast plans so we did... More

When we first walked into the hotel room the smell hit me like a ton of bricks. It smelled like nursing home + chain smoker's house. It was gross. The paint was peeling in our room, the towels smelled like smoke (supposedly a smoke free room), the carpet was absolutely disgusting and dingey, I tried to walk on it with... More
