3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The location was convenient, I thought I would give it a try as it was inexpensive. It was not bad for the price. The downside, I had a king size bed but two very small flat pillows so nothing to lean up against when trying to sit up in bed and use laptop. There was one small window but it... More

The hotel is conveniently located off the interstate and offers affordable accommodations, but leaves some to be desired. The bathroom was not very clean - lots of stray hairs - and the bed was very uncomfortable. The continental breakfast did not provide many options. The lock on the door was also broken.

No security lock on door and this is a motel. Contractor motel. Water spots on ceiling and visible patch work. Rock hard pillows. Hard mattress. Mattress pad that bunches up. Mold in bath tub in and around mat, which looked like it had not been moved in ages. Exterior need some attention. Pool was clean though. For the price there... More

Location is very convenient; near several eateries, the mall, grocery and gas. Price was very low. The clerk at check in (David) was friendly and talkative. He offered an updated interior room, which was fine. I originally wanted an exterior room for fresh-air and mountain view purposes, but was informed that these rooms were very old and not nice. The... More

My apology for less favorable impression of our hotel left on you during your brief visit with us. The fact is all our rooms recently upgraded and well appointed. It is just the matter of preference for our guests weather they like interior or exterior corridor building. I'm glad that you liked our location and amenities like free WIFI. Hope... More

This hotel is placed in the most perfect location. Tons of stores, restaurants, fast food, mall. The price was great for me, the room was bigger than most hotels I've stayed at. I had no issues with my room, except one thing(see below), the staff was great, just all around good. The only issue I had, which was no big... More

My family of four stayed at this motel for one night. This was the cheapest I found around at the time of my search via Expedia. I was not expecting spectacular things with the low cost. Here are the things I like about this motel: 1) The room was clean, big enough as a basic motel, free breakfast, free wifi... More

I read all the other comments and thought that this would be a nice place for my family to stay. I was sadly mistaken. I want everyone reading this to no that I am writing this review from the room.

Please accept my sincere apology for your less than a satisfactory stay. Though I'm bit surprised as I understand, on very first time we offered you different room which you refused so our staff cleaned your room thoroughly under my supervision including taking all the linen out for wash. Not only that but I did offer a personal apology and... More

We were driving through Virginia at 3 in the morning and the kids were screaming. I looked up cheap hotels to grab a few hours sleep and this seemed to be the cheapest. We were a little uneasy based on the mixed reviews. When we got into the room it was really nice. I checked the blankets and pillows because... More

The lobby was spacious and clean and gave a great impression. We had a room in the rear and it was very large. The bed was just right, however the linens were pretty scratchy. The rest of the room was fine, the desk and lamp were well situated and the TV was a nice flat screen. The next morning we... More

Our non-smoking room smelled smokey (especially the pillows) and moldy/musty. Flat pillows, thin towels. Very small room. For some reason in room 201, they put the hanging clothes holder right beside one side of the bed so you had to duck to get in and out of bed. Not pleasant with the 3 AM bathroom run! Stains on the bedside... More
