Hotel was right at highway exit - great. Check in was OK. Hotel obviously older and construction is going on. Room was definitely old. Needs updates, new flooring, etc. Stepped on carpet tacks going into bathroom. Bath definitely needs an update. Wallpaper was hanging off the walls. Went to breakfast room Sunday AM. Nothing left. It was close to 10:00... More

Horrible experience. Pillow case and bed spread have burnt holes in them. Water stains all over the ceiling. Hotel wreaks of second hand smoke. No coffee maker or iron in my room like I paid for. Bed was wrinkled and looked like it had been through hell and back. Highly unsatisfied with their professionalism with handling my complaint and concerns.... More

After a long day of driving to Columbus I was left with no choice but to go cheap and quick. Well I guess some lessons are hard learned. The rooms are cheap, but the price should be way lower for what you get. Tiny, unclean, rundown rooms. Every sheet on my bed had a cigarette burn and at least one... More

First off the smell of cigarette smoke was overwhelming when we walked through the door to the hotel.But We set that aside and went ahead and checked in. Walked down the hall and room doors were open like the people who were in those rooms have occupied them for awhile. Staff was friendly but we both got a bad feeling... More

This was by far the worst experience I've had a hotel. Upon entering the lobby is shabby, but the help is friendly - that's all the place has going for it. The carpet on the stairs was so filthy that it was almost soggy and you could hardly see the carpet design. The room climate-control system cycled on and off... More

I made a reservation via phone. Arrived at about 2 AM and was approached by a prostitute in the parking lot. I then was offered entry by someone standing in an open doorway. It appears this motel has many long term residents who do not need to get up for work. The rooms show years of wear and tear. Red... More

Stayed one night. Room was clean, quiet and bed was comfortable. Started running water in the bathtub to take a shower and noticed accumulation-drain not working properly. Same with the sink. Water was still in tub the following morning. Spoke to two desk clerks about it. Was sitting in my vehicle when a young man came up to my truck... More
