I liked how this property is located. Very quiet and clean parking. The room I had was not so bad but can't complain for $67 plus what I paid. Very basic breakfast and I wish they had fruits. Bathroom was clean but towel was little short in size. I was looking for a place to rest for one night and... More

I consider myself to be a pretty fair person. I try not to be overly picky with amenities and such, but I do expect cleanliness. This motel was far from clean! There were hairs on almost every towel, and they didn't even give us enough towels for my family of four. When my husband requested more towels, the little Indian... More

We spend a lot of time in Lenoir, but usually stay with family or at Comfort Inn. We were passing through late on July 4th, and no one else had availability. We requested a non-smoking room. When we got into the room, it had a strong smoke smell. The sheets had dirt on them and one of the beds was... More

We made reservations for three nights at this motel in advance and asked if the handicapped room was available. We were informed that the handicapped room would be available during this time and it was reserved for us or at least that was what we were informed on the phone. When we arrived at about 1945 my husband asked several... More

I arrived at this motel around midnight. The first room they gave me the air conditioner did not work and it had roaches and ants in it. They moved us to another room and it was completely infested with bed bugs. We were then moved into another room that was not clean with pee behind the toilet. The sheets had... More

I stayed one night at this hotel, my children and I were in town for a wedding. I was highly disappointed in the accommodations, I've had more appealing stays for $29.99 at the Motel 6. First, whoever was responsible for cleaning the room after the previous occupant left Cheetos alongside the bed closest to the wall. I would have assumed... More

On our way to Asheville Tn. we were getting tired and decided to get a couple of room for the night and saw this motel. It looked to be well taken care of in the front and the lobby was nice. We checked in only to find that after REALLY looking around things were not as we thought. Hair and... More

I was on my way back to my home from Tennessee and I decided to stay over one night at this hotel. I was very please with this hotel. The rate was reasonable after 10% discount that they offered me before even I ask for anything. This place is covered with great parking space all around with no trespassing. The... More

During our labor day long week-end holiday we decided to stay in Lenoir instead of Boone or Hickory. We stayed at this hotel and we really enjoyed staying here for 3 days. To our surprise this hotel keeps the same rate year around while other hotels bump their rates during peak time. Breakfast was limited but they have really nice... More
