Our room, room 7, was quiet, clean and comfy. Everything was tastefully renovated. The beds, bedding and pillows were good, and I liked the... More

The place looks a little seedy from the outside, but I think it's more the busy highway location and the color of the exterior paint. Inside the rooms are just lovely (I saw a friend's room too) ... all updated and elegant with granite bathroom counters and roomy shower enclosures. Really, very nice. I found the mattress a little soft,... More

The room was great and we enjoyed our stay. Everybody at the hotel was very friendly and the rooms are very clean. This was our second stay and we would stay there again. The beds are very comfortable and the showers are amazing.

The motel is spotlessly clean, comfortable, and quiet with very friendly helpful staff. As the title says it is a great value. My travel friend and I tend to favor family-owned businesses over the chains and we were very pleased. We would book here again without hesitation if we are traveling in this area again. It is well situated geographically... More

I had an overall positive experience here. The staff was friendly enough and the rooms were far better than should be expected in a motel. The granite countertops, in particular, were a nice touch. My only minor complaint about the room was that the coffee pot was not cleaned and had coffee in it from the previous day's guest. On... More

Great room, wonderful accommodations, exceptionally clean and well-maintained, very comfortable beds, and amazing shower! Only thing I wish they had was built-in hairdryers like most hotels--but a minor inconvenience. An incredible value. Getting married in Aug and will recommend this place to all family and friends!
