Stayed two nights and was impressed with the outside of the motel. The pool was nice and the lawn and shrubs were pretty. I did find out that you don't have to be a guest to use the pool. Several random people came to swim which made for crowding at the pool, not to mention some of them were rude.... More

Very friendly efficient front office employee. Had a problem right off the bat that she very quickly took care of. This motel is old but has been remodeled in the past several years. Still have the old type TVs but the one in our room worked great. The picture was very good. The bed slept very well. The only suggestion... More

Stayed two nights in this perfect location of a motel. My room was not cleaned whatsoever. I come back to room, trash still there from eating dinner the first night, towels were still on the floor from the first night of taking shower, bed not made. No clean towels for the second day. The shower curtain that was broken was... More

Let me start first by saying, we stayed at this hotel last year and found it satisfactory, at that time. Dated, but okay. Our visit this time was very disappointing. Our check in was pleasant with no problems. We did a quick sweep of our room before we left for the evening. Upon returning, we were both very tired from... More

This was our second trip to this property. Both stays were great. The staff is very nice and helpful. They go out of their way to be helpful. This is a great location for the casino and has a kids drop and play adjacent to the hotel. My phone was lost while staying at the property and they found it... More

This is an inexpensive and quality place to stay. My wife and I stayed Dec.23, 2013 and had a pleasant stay. The location is within walking distance to the Casino, or you can drive through the parking lot without getting back on the highway. The owners are very nice and the room was squeaky clean!!

My husband and I stayed overnight on the weekend. We had checked some of the other hotels in the area. Most near the casino where over $150 a night. We stayed here for under $100. So pretty good savings. But there is nothing fancy about it. You get a bed and a bathroom. There is a coffee maker in the... More

We were looking for a place to spend the night that wasn't too expensive and ran across this little jewel. They allowed us to stay with our two dogs and the price was very good compared to the name brand hotels. The staff was nice, rooms clean and comfortable and good internet service.

Nice and clean. Comfortable beds, pet friendly and really nice man at the desk. Good price too compared to other motels in the area. Very close to the casino and just across the street from Wendy's. We will definitely be staying there again when we are in the area.

This motel is a great place to stay at. The rooms were very clean. The staff is very kind and helpful. We arrived before the check in time but decided to go on and rent the room for two nights. The desk clerk had to leave the office for little while so no one was in the office and the... More
