I stayed at this hotel for one night and was very pleased with it. It was an excellent value for the price. I will stay there again for sure! Here's the whole low-down. The hallway smelled smokey, but our room was a non-smoking room and it did NOT smell of smoke. The room was clean, everything worked. The bed was... More

We have stayed here a number of times before, and had the opportunity to stay here again this past labour day weekend for one night. If you are over 50 they will offer you a seniors discount. Didn't even have to ask. Free continental breakfast comes with the room. All kinds of good things to eat including fresh fruit, coffee,... More

It was an okay hotel for the price. There was a stain on the carpet and the room smelled of urine. The air conditioner did not work properly and the smell was worse when it was on. We were in a non smoking room and area, but the smell of smoke in the hallway was terrible. Bathroom was very clean... More

From the road this looks like an old run down motel... And it is. But I have to say, that for the price you pay there are some surprising pluses to staying here. First, the staff (all of them) were incredibly friendly and genuinely kind. We called the front desk to ask for a restaurant suggestion and we were directed... More

I booked this hotel through Choice Hotels and two days before my booking I received a call from Mary (front desk) saying that they needed confirmation of my employment to lock down the rate I receive through Choice Hotel's online booking. I book with Choice Hotels weekly and have never had any issues with my reservation. They said they could... More
