First appearances the room smelled and looked clean. However the bathroom tub looked dirty. It had black stuff in it. There was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. How hard is it to clean? Cleanliness is the least you would expect at any hotel.

We loved this motel. So cute and quaint, and a perfect way to start our week journey. I was actually depressed it was over after one night! Wanted to stay longer! Such a cute place and nice, friendly owners. If you are used to the Ritz, do not stay here! It is a basic room with a sink outside the... More

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
