Need a room for the night that allowed dogs. The staff was very friendly. The room was very large and spacious. Everything is a bit old and dated, but is clean. The price is reasonable, and they do offer a military discount.

The rooms are huge, clean, a little dated, but perfect for our needs. The price for the rooms were great for our family (as our teen were able to have their own room). A nice stop for our long day.

I'm an admitted price shopper, and in this area ABVI looked to be a good deal. I thought they were all new facilities, but this one is not. Guess the "Sands" in the name should have been a clue. But new or not, it is still a good deal. It is the traditional U-shaped motel where you park in front... More

Easy to find, friendly clerk. Room was very large, but despite entering that we had a dog when I made the computer reservations, the room had to be changed. The room was clean but aged, but the couch was unusable, leaving two table-type chairs. The beds were not well made (one had a droopy foundation cover, the other had none),... More

The cleanest hotel we have seen in a while.My wife entered the the hotel office of this hotel and was greeted with a very fresh scent in the air. Not to mention the warm greeting we had when we met the hotel staff. The room we were assigned to was very clean,and had all the items one would need for... More

It was overall pretty inexpensive even with the pet deposit, but it is an extremely old motel with very dated interiors. The oops was huge, but that put the 20" tube tv far enough away that I couldn't see it. Ac was off and never actually got the room comfortable, but did cool off. Good new is the sheets were... More

My husband and our three year old son and our lab mix stayed at this motel in June 2015. It is an older, one story motel with walk-up exterior room entrances. It was inexpensive and pet friendly (no extra charge), and we got what we expected for the price. The place was reasonably clean and just fine for a night's... More

The hotel room was clean but a bit dated. The AC unit was really loud and had to be turned off because we couldn't sleep. There was a bench outside for sitting. The man who checked us in was very kind and helpful. The town itself was minimal, like it had fallen on hard times. Breakfast was plentiful with many... More

Needed a room on a short notice while travelling, and picked this one at random. Had a few non-flattering reviews, but the price was right so we made the reservation. Driving up, it looked a little...um....'questionable'. Older design (probably built in the 70's, but has been upgraded), but very clean. The hotel itself seems to be a Mom & Pop... More
