The front desk folks were very courteous and helpful to weary travelers. My room (245) appeared to be clean and fresh, yet bare feet felt the floor carpets needed more attention than just a vacuuming. The bathroom was nice and best of all, had good shower pressure and plenty of hot water. The heater worked well in increments, not too... More

I paid $55 which is pretty inexpensive but this place probably falls more in the $35 to $45 range. If just need a cheap place to stay for one night I suppose it works but I don't think I'll be coming back

This is a nice, clean motel with friendly staff and a nice breakfast. It's an older motel but is well kept and comfortable. Price was very reasonable and I would stay there again.

Very disappointed with my stay........the room was very outdated, the beds were old and flimsy, the pillows were tiny and thin. The door lock was loose and the dead bolt didn't work. The sound from the other rooms traveled right through the walls. I had to listen to a dog bark in an adjoining room for over two hours. The... More
