We were looking for an affordable, not too fancy place and boy we found way less! The outside of the place didn't look too shabby, but looks can be deceiving!!!! Got into the room and first noticed the weird odor, mainly a urine and smoke smell! The comforters had cuts and holes in them, when we pulled back the blankets... More

Carpet stained, sheets dirty, toilet won't flush, mattress filthy, not enough towels, blankets worn, holes in blankets, paint peeling on walls. Microwave at least 10 years old. Fridge filthy. Food underneath the dresser. Was afraid to look under the bed. Absolutely the worst hotel ever...

This is first decent hotel we found on our trip from Saint Louis to New York and back home. The staff is great, beds are comfy and the AC was working great!!! All the restaurants are within walking distance. Rooms are very clean, seems like they recently renovated, vanities looked new, just need to replace the carpet. We talked to... More

I start all my reviews by saying I have no choice where I stay, my company makes the decision. I like to start all my reviews (just lately) with something positive about the places I stay. This hotel is just off a main road and there are several fast food restaurants, a large strip mall, and a Wal-Mart in walking... More

We stayed here for one night during a long drive. The room was clean and quiet. Quite a few other restaurants in this area. The $4.99 buffet at Cici's Pizza nearby was hard to beat. A very good choice to rest along the highway.

Pool closed, room was dirty, carpet was filthy. I tried to get new pillows because of the stains but they brought worse pillows. First motel I have ever had to cover the toilet seat with paper. C Breakfast was a joke. I can't beleive ABVI would allow this motel in their chain. Apparently ABVI has no quality control.

We stayed over in Columbus at exit 91 on our way back home from Erie. We had 2 rooms and both were pretty clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The beds and pillows were very comfy, slept good.

Check-in okay but room was awful. Dirty sheets. Black spots may have been just stains but pet hair on sheets. Got new sheets to change beds but didn't bother once we saw how much hair was on the mateess pads. Other hotels booked or out if our price range so we asked for another room. Second room was better but... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and the service was excellent. The staff members are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice, clean, and comfortable. It's located at a very quite corner of a very resourceful area. There are tons of restaurants near by and plenty of stores. There is also a movie theater within walking distance if you get... More
