Even though this motel is on the lower end of area pricing, we were not disappointed. Room was clean, even the carpet seemed OK (went without slippers). There were no obvious issues to point out about the room. The King sized bed was very comfortable to me and I slept soundly but my wife said she woke up stiff both... More

Our stay was disappointing to say the least. We stayed in room 2114. The room was filthy from the light switches to the moldy corners of the room. I expect old from a discount motel but there is no excuse for the filth. When I notified corporate about the issue I was told that the motels are privately owned but... More

We had an accident in our big truck and needed a place to stay. I called and the lady at the desk said that they did take pets for a $10 per night fee and they did have a room available. Yes! The tow truck driver took us over and we stayed for three days. The staff were very nice.... More

Everything is just a little below average. Small holes in the curtains; chipped tiles in the pool; no list of which channel is which on the TV; breakfast about average. Big complaint: pool not open until checkout time. Our kids love a quick swim in the morning before being trapped in the car all day.

Hotel room was clean enough to be tolerated. This hotel is seriously outdated, patching has been done to help it exist. The lobby entry door, office door, were filthy - how could they work in there and touch these doors daily? Absolutely NO WIFI, not in the lobby either. Inexpensive, as it should be.

The room was nice and well appointed --- a pleasant surprise for such a reasonable rate. The property manager went out of his way to find a way to print some google maps direction - (as my Motorcycle GPS had stopped functioning) Great stay -- thank you

Clean. Bedroom area recently refurnished. bathroom still old but clean. Staff was excellent --front desk clerk who checked me in was very friendly and took the initiative to give me a room that parking my trailer worked well with, too. I'd stay again for the cost. Checked in at 9pm, slept, and left early morning.
