Overall a nice, clean friendly hotel. Nothing fancy, nice bar area. No food though. Check in person were very nice. Fast and good all four of our checked in, in no time. First place I ever had to pay for ice, but they do give you, your first bucket of ice for free. That's a little unusual. They do have... More

We stayed here in October as most places were closing. This motel is in need of a serious update but quite clean. The walls are thin and the bar noise goes on until late. The bed could have been more comfortable. (my husband says it was the worst bed he ever slept in) They serve 'breakfast' but we are not... More

We stayed here just the one night before we visited the famous Louisburg fortress. It's not fancy and age but is also clean and quiet and safe. Most of all, for being an older hotel did not smell like cigarette smoke. Lots of choices for free breakfast which included coffee juice milk cereal toast bagels jam and yogurt. It's just... More

We stayed here because our original hotel overbooked. I'm sorry to say that it was awful. The curtains let in light, There were only two coat hangers - the type for trousers. You could hear everything in connecting room. Everthing was very old and shabby. The worst thing was the bed and pillows. The bed was rock hard and the... More

loved the service from the front desk, such a nice lady, offered us a suite which was spacious and very clean. Informed us of all the activities in the area. So grateful for her help because we had a chance to go to the Playhouse

We stayed in the older section of the motel and it was very very basic. The door was stuck so we had to kick it to get in. Very musty, mouldy smelling. Dingy, old furniture. Beds were substandard. It was, however, clean and pet friendly, which were pluses. However if you have the choice, stay somewhere, anywhere else!

You won't get what you pay for. The wifi wouldn't reach to my room - no Kleenex - no hair dryer - the plug in the sink area was only for low voltage razors - you had to be a very short person to use the mirror - the light bulbs were so dim that you couldn't't read by them... More

We were quite happy with our stay. We slept well in a clean and comfortable room for a fair price. Motels are pretty functional places, and you can't expect anything special, but this was fine. The only criticism I'd make was over the breakfast. The range and quality could have been better.

Stayed three nights and was very satisfied. Basic accommodation but well provided. Bar, breakfast, laundry, wi-fi, And cheerful helpful people running it. No luxury -- but reliable basic shelter if you are keeping costs down.

I stayed in this hotel in September, 2012. It was clean and comfortable and very good value. It had been largely renovated with new flooring and bed spreads. I did not notice how many chairs were outside the door as I do not use them.Unlike some other reviews I did not find it "musty". I had experienced that problem in... More
