We stayed here 1 night. Was clean all except the bathroom. The bathroom wall near door either had feces or blood on it. There was no fan in bathroom and the light did not fit into the huge hole cut in the ceiling. Again beds were clean and room with the exception on the bathroom was clean

We stayed here over the Christmas holidays. Very nice place to sleep. The room has a little bit of a smell but once the heater was run the smell was gone. Didn't use the breakfast bar except for coffee on our last morning. Check in and out was very smooth. I would stay here again. For a place to put... More

It is fine for a one night stay. Not ritzy. Nice view. Very limited breakfast in a small space. Since I don't do waffles, Raisin Bran it was. I did appreciate the fridge in the room even if it needed defrosted. Beds were fine. The location was pretty quiet.

Driving thru they advertised newly renovated and it is. For a hotel this class this is pretty good. Don't expect too much such as very good breakfast or great service. The shower head was a Lil weak, the bed was OK new that's good, breakfast place is a Lil small so I had to wait for a table. But one... More

Traveled through from Florida and used hotel as a one night layover. During check in the staff appeared to be "locked" in their office and talk to you through a tiny hole in window. Looked around and wondered what kind of friendly service this could be. Staff not very polite and didnt appear friendly or welcoming. Got to room noticed... More

Once again I stopped in here on my cross country motorcycle trip and was very satisfied. Service with a smile, nice clean rooms and you could pull up the bike right to the door of the room. Hope to be back on my next trip.

Room I checked into wasn't as nice as one I looked at beforehand, but because I refused to pay extra for a smoking double that I didn't need since, supposedly there second floor single smoking rooms and ones in single story section in rear were already occupied, took a single non-smoking room. Which still had a cigarette burn in the... More

In one word, "DIRTY!" not to mention the fact that the day after my 1 night stay I began to itch in certain places on my body. After doing some research I was less than thrilled to find out the spots are bites from bedbugs...

Was very satisfied. Room was clean, staff was friendly, and breakfast was waffles, cereal, and juice and coffee. Nothing fancy but can't beat it for this price. I would stay there again on my next trip.
