Very cheap, but You get what You pay for. The housekeeping seems non-existent and the breakfast was sub-par. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone unless You are on a very tight budget. Next time I will spring for a better hotel. The only good part of my experience here was leaving.

It is by far better than high priced outfits. The receptionist was great - Bandy - he got us settled in perfect - very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, the beds clean, bathroom was clean - Bandy was great he put us in a family oriented floor that was a plus.

Register in advance on the Choice Privileges site. As a member the discounts are always better. Check in was slow due to computer problems. Being patient paid off with free upgrade to a better room. Great breakfast with hot items that was comparable to other more expensive Choice Hotels. Room was clean. Stayed here for a car show and ice... More

Computer in lobby so slow that it was of NO use at all. Bed hard, carpet nasty. Was there on business and had paperwork faxed. When I went to pick it up they said... More

Don't even waste your time or money! We were wanting a room for one night as we were just passing through. We were better off to just keep driving. Three room changes, toilets didn't work ,and no heat in any of them. Very very unhappy an will never come back or recommend this place!

I needed a room to stay as my work was keeping me in the area, but I did not have time to get a hotel through work, so I booked this hotel as a failsafe. When I got there, I was greeted by the manager who went through my options of rooms for the night. Very friendly gentleman. He placed... More

Next room slightly better but bed frame held filth, bathroom ceiling coming down, walls cracked and peeling, showerhead rusted, tub scratched and ancient, breakfast area dirty and offering feeble and unclean. Heater ancient and noisy. Stains on rugs, furniture, mattresses. Just missing bedbugs... More
