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

After a 7 hour drive and pulling in at 1am all we looked forward to was a comfortable clean bed. When we opened the door to the room there was a huge stain on the carpet which I can ignore. However, when I pulled the sheets back and I find a blood stain on the pillow a few questionable stains... More

I booked this hotel because it said it had a continental breakfast, but if they call that a continental breakfast, they better think again. All it consisted of was coffee and 2 kinds of pastries, no juice or other items. It certainly wasn't worth the price I paid. They didn't even have air conditioning in the lobby or the hallways,...

I booked this hotel because it was on the way home from vacation and I got a great deal through Priceline. A clean room and a place to refresh before we completed our journey was all we needed. After reading the reviews (before arriving) I saw that the common spot of this establishment was "Mike" at the check-in desk. Undeterred... More

I have stayed at this property many times with and without family and I find it comfortable, clean and safe. While it's not the cheapest, it certainly isn't the most expensive either. Their rates are affordable, which is great! The staff is full of very nice and helpful people. Always smiling and friendly. Rooms are clean, lobby is clean. While... More

After an eight hour drive, attempted to check in, didn't have my reservation from one of the larger trip websites that was scheduled 1.5 months ago. Sorted out after 30 minutes. Went to room and immediately went to the bathroom (8 hour trip), and found a used bar of soap and an opened packet of shampoo. They changed my room... More
