This is a clean hotel. Brand new beds and full kitchen so you can cook a meal and have a whole pot of coffee if you want. They don't have a hair dryer or iron for those like me who might need one but they have everything else you could want. The price is great and the managers are more... More

POSITIVES: - Clean bed and sheets.

Lots of coffee grounds in your own personal tupperware. - Hari was nice and friendly. - Great location! Coffee shop (Arborlodge), Diner... More

This gem is reasonably priced and well-maintained. An added plus--an episode of Grimm filmed here! Across the street is the bus line and I enjoyed the local bar/cafe the Nite Hawk Cafe & Lounge too. I will definitely be back to both!

The place is great. Right on the rail line, walking distance to coffee and restaurants. Close to my daughter's apartment. VERY close to major highway intersection. Room was clean and comfortable for a fraction of the cost of other pricey hotels.

The internet wasnt the best but that was getting corrected the week i left (of coarse). Close places to eat and get groceries for... More

Viking is clean and comfortable in a very good location for us, close to Woodlawn neighborhood. Trixie the Brittany was welcome to stay for a slight fee. David and Brian are fun and welcoming people! They work hard at making this motel squeaky clean. Our room had a new bed and fresh paint, lovely mirrors. I wonder if the staff... More

I stayed at the Viking for five nights in July, and it left a very favorable impression on me. If you want fancy or modern, look elsewhere. The accomodations are basic but comfortable and squeaky clean, and the staff is pleasant as well. The property itself is hardly modern but certainly not dated or worn and complements the neighborhood perfectly.... More
