We were in town for a fastpitch tournament, this hotel suited our needs perfectly, value priced and centrally located. We don't spend much time in our room when we travel for tournaments, if it's safe, clean and affordable, we're pretty happy. The pools were great, we enjoyed both, we slept thru breakfast, so no comment about breakfast and we took... More

We had a great experience when we stayed here last May. We are a girls fastpitch team and had a block of rooms for the families and players to stay next to each other at a group rate which we appreciated! Also, we had a night off and they offered the hotel van and a driver that took our players... More

This hotel used to be a Red Lion and a Clarion, it has the old and worn out furnishings, carpets, drapes, and paint, and all rooms don't have flat screen TV's. It definitely needs upgrading on both interior and exterior. Some AC units are too noisy, some fridges don't get cold enough.

Thank you for leaving this helpful review to point out the places where we can improve. You may have noticed during your stay that we've been doing a lot of landscaping outside. The process is slow but we will be working our way inward. Try us again soon, enjoy the Laugh Lounge Comedy Club and take advantage of our complimentary... More

Spent two days mid week, very quiet, few guests. They offer a small dinner buffet, chicken, potatoes, veggies and a odd salad bar. It was okay, if you're not too picky and don't want to leave the building. Breakfast was okay, nothing special. For the price, it's a decent place to stay. It was clean. It is under new management,... More

Our air conditioning did not work in 107 temp.

I was there with my son's baseball team. The free breakfast and dinner was perfect! All we wanted to think about was baseball, it was nice to have meals covered. Not gourmet but hearty enough to fill you up. Clean and spacious rooms, lots of TV channels, 2 clean pools, staff was friendly.

While the motel needs a lot of updating in areas, we found our room clean and comfortable. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was ok. If you expect a full meal it might be best to go somewhere else. As far as a free beakfast , its about the normal fare. Never ate supper there so unable to say. I... More

The hotel was excellent in terms of customer service, clean and friendly. Very helpful front desk and housekeeping. My only sideways comment is the use of plastic and paper in the coffee shop. I prefer the feel and texture of glass and stainless flatwares.
