This property has actually lost its Choice Hotel flag. At this point, they don't have a name, but are trying to sell the property. The staff is truly great, but that is the only thing about this property that is even half-way decent. There are few rooms that are available (not because it is packed). The room we had was... More

The television didn't work. They could not replace the television, and with 20 cars in the lot, the hotel was sold out! Woke up next morning found mold in the bathroom. Manager never shows up on time.

Background: My kids (13 & 18) and I went on an 8 day road trip to spend some time together before my son leaves for college and heads out on his own adventures. We wanted to see some relatives and just enjoy getting out of TX. Spur of the moment and budget was very tight. We expected to do mainly... More

Lady at the front desk was nice, as with the rest of the staff I encountered, only reason I give it a two. Having a cracker barrel right next door was nice. I had a non smoking room, and when entering the room it smelled very strong of air freshener. I figured previous guests had been smoking in there, but... More

I reserved 2 rooms for 4 people via online. Looked decent on line. The hotel is old and the renovations are greatly needed. The smell of the rooms, the panel covering the numbers on the elevator was falling off. Nothing appeared to be clean. The beds were suspect when I looked at the sheets. During the night I kept feeling... More

Let me start out with saying the reason my family chose this hotel was for the location and price. It seemed to be a safe area. We arrived from a 4 hour trip early at 2 pm (check in is at 3) and seeing that the parking lot was entirely empty we asked if we could check in at that... More
