I've been visiting the Sentinel often for almost a year when I'm in town on business because they offer a consistent level of service; probably from being a family run business that is financially invested in your satisfaction. They offer a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere that I can depend on whenever I visit. The bigger chains hotels see so many people... More

Our stay at the Sentinel Motel on August 22 thru Sunday 24, 2014 was excellent. This property is away from the highway and busy roadway, so our room was extremely quiet. Though the room was a little small, it was exceptionally clean and was truly a Non-Smoking Room. Our bed was very comfy and the headboard was very stylish! The... More

The rest was like I was staying at an old aunt's house... Mold in shower,... More

The Sentinel is clean and reasonable priced. The bed was comfortable, it was very quiet, and the staff were amazingly efficient, friendly, and responsive. As... More

This is what I would like to call "vintage". The room colors are very 1970s deep maroon. The bed was awesome. I swear they put 1000 count thread sheets on the bed. Even the table lamps were cool. And this place was SO clean! There was a big tv, microwave, and good sized motel fridge. I could have slept there... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for four nights after having read prior reviews of how nice this little place was. well, it certainly exceeded our expectations. firstly, although it is located on a busy highway, the property is located on a hillside so you don't see or hear any traffic. our room had a comfortable king sized bed...
