Room was clean, breakfast decent. Exercise room is a converted guest room with old equipment. Served its purpose as cheaper motel near airport.

Room was clean, staff was always pleasant, breakfast was limited but good. The bed was very comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was good. My only complaint is that my room was on the side near the road and there was a lot of traffic. My next stay I will make sure my room is on the other... More

Pleasant friendly staff- desk clerk, manager, housekeeping seemed well trained in providing great customer satisfaction. Nearby places to eat a definite plus. Would certainly return.

We had ear wax on our pillows & hair on the sheets when we got there. The gentleman @ the front desk was very quick to bring us new ones. Overall, we were happy with our stay!

Things were going along fine until I got in the shower and found long hairs that did not belong to me. Then I felt creepy all over. The breakfast was also poor to fair. Things were dried out and it was messy. Internet would also not work with our Apple computers. Front desk gal said Apple computers have never worked... More

Let me first say that I appreciated the free breakfast, WiFi, and the room was very clean. The pillows on the bed were awful. Instead of 2 full size pillows on a queen sized bed, there were 4 small square pillows (think of throw pillows you'd find on a sofa) which made for an uncomfortable night's sleep. While the location... More

Okay let's talk about the good. My buddy forgot to book at hotel for the weekend we were coming in for a game. I went online and booked the Sunday before the Saturday game. The cost was reasonable and this was the first hotel I saw that had more positive reviews than negatives. On the way in we called ahead... More
