I stayed here for a long week-end with my 12 year old son. I am so glad that I found this place, as it was much better than a chain hotel in a city setting. The rooms were very large, & clean. The owners were extremely friendly, and gave us tips for local places to see. There's a country store... More

It has a 1960's motel layout, brick on the outside, painted cinder block inside, but it is clean with large rooms and a homey feel inside. The bed is big and the couch new. There is a coffee table and tall entertainment center though the tv is small and it's Dish so no Walking Dead. You still get more channels... More

We stayed here for two nights and would definitely return! It's family owned and operated, which we prefer. The room was nothing fancy but it was big, clean and comfortable. The king bed was very comfortable! We didn't hear any noise from the road. There are picnic tables, grills and fire rings if you want to have a cookout. The... More

We loved our stay here. You might be put off by the cinder block walls of the rooms or the sort of "road-side-ness" of this place, but it was really just what we were looking for. The establishment has a small grocery store, grill, gas station, and rooms to stay in. The room was spacious and clean, the price can't... More

Spotlessly clean - older but nicely refurbished motel with a staff that cannot be beat (family owned and operated). My better half travels extensively for work and I have stayed in countless hotels as a pilot, so we both have a pretty good sense of what we don't like in a lodging establishment, BUT we both agree that we'll be...
