No complaints about this basic hotel, except that it's difficult to find any services nearby. We did find a Chinese restaurant in a small strip mall a few miles to the left (west), between a Subway and a hot dog restaurant. If you're looking for a low-priced option and are just passing through this should be OK, but not for... More

You can't beat the price of a hotel under $70 but there is a few things you have to suffer through in order to save money. First thing was the smell. I booked a non-smoking room but it still had a horrible smell of smoke. The bathroom could have been cleaner, especially the shower floor. The comforter had cigarette holes... More

Got a last minute invite to a sports tournament nearby. Everything in the area was booked unless >175.00 night/or this place... and all we needed was a place to sleep.... Figuring it couldn't be THAT bad we went for it - plus it had a pool and it was projected to be hot. We got there late and checked in.... More

Booked a king whirlpool room for two nights. Upon arrival we had to wait several minutes as the owner came from the living area, I assume. Our room was in a back building with an exterior door open to all. Our room smelled like smoke even though it was a nonsmoking room. The room was mostly clean, but the bath... More

My husband and I were heading back from a week long vacation North East and this was a late night stop for us on our long trek back to our home. We walked into the office and were greeted by the manager as he walked out of the bathroom. We asked what the rate for a one night stay was,... More

We stayed at this hotel because is was the only one available. We stopped at a different hotel and the lady said that all the hotels in the area were full. She was very reluctant to tell us about this one. I can understand why now. The room was damp (although the carpets were just shampooed), there was someone's dirty... More

Awful, terrible, and any other synonyms you can think of. The only good thing about this place, is they take pets, but beware... Our dogs will need baths and flea dips after this stay! First, walking through the office door it smelled of bug spray and oil (that should have stopped us in our tracks). Next, the staff was so... More

We have stayed here in the past with different owners and it was wonderful. We chose this place again as it was close to the church and funeral home for my mother's funeral and we try to support small businesses whenever possible. We reserved 7 rooms for 20 people in person and a day in advance. We had everyone from... More
