The good.... Great staff. Very friendly, personable and ready to assist. The lobby and breakfast area is very nice. The rooms are up to date and love having a private balcony for every room. Great location and would probably stay here again. The bad...The carpet needs replaced badly. A lot of cosmetic improvements needed. Breakfast was so-so at best.

This was booked on hotwire. Couldn't ask for a better place and rate. Friendly and cautious front desk. Room was more than we expected for the price. Close to a nice place to eat. The breakfast was excellent. Would recommend to any one travelling.

The Good: cheap, decent staff, clean The Bad: old, not well refurbished, small rooms, badly maintained, thin walls So the family and I needed a cheap place for a quick nights sleep and this was it. It's a 70's vintage motel with a bad renovation. Our tub did not drain, our bathroom door stuck at the bottom, sloppy paint work... More

My husband and I and our Golden Retriever just recently stayed here on our way back to Canada from Florida. We found this hotel quite sufficient for our needs.

We stayed for two night while in town for a UT football weekend. The hotel was the cheapest option and about 10 minutes from downtown. The hotel is very clean and tidy, but a little run down. There are signs of wear and tear, but as expected for $75 per night on a high occupancy weekend. The breakfast was good... More
