I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and refreshing this motel was. My room came with a refrigerator and microwave. The staff were sweet, very helpful and knowledgeable about the history of the area. Thank you for a wonderful visit! I would highly recommend this motel for price and satisfaction!

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. It is the cheapest hotel so it is not a surprise that others stayed there, but I was not happy that the staff allowed a bike gang to make noise until 2 am. I would stay there again, as long as there is no bike gang there. The desk clerk was... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our motel. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. I'd like to apologize for the noise of the other guests. During the summer months we often find our guests like to enjoy the pleasant weather outside of their rooms. We will work to remind our guests of our quiet hours. Just wanted to remind... More

We have stayed at this motel several times. It is clean and prices are good. The motel is older and needs a little work but is good for a good nights sleep. They have an indoor pool. They also serve rolls,toast,bagels ,and muffins in the mornings along with coffee. There is coffee and juice at all times in the office.... More

The hotel wasn't bad, clean and got what we expected for the price we were paying. We stayed for two nights. The first night was fine but we got in at almost 3:00 am. It was quite. We were gone most of the day yesterday but when we got back around 7 the atmosphere had drastically changed. Unaware to us... More

We called late at night the night clerk asked where we were. Gave us very good directions how to get there. She was very nice and helpful. We were there to go on a railroad trip the next day.

They were out of pillows, so I had to drive to a walmart and buy 2. The rooms are old and the beds are hard. The mattress actually had holes in it (not too sanitary). I asked to speak with the manager because I wanted the cost of the pillows deducted from my bill. The night time and daytime desk... More

We stayed here one weekend night during a trip to the Appalachian Mountains. We knew that it was an older place but only cared that it was clean. It was actually very clean in the room and office where breakfast was served, we didn't go to the pool. It had a refrigerator (very cold) and microwave as well in the... More

The staff was very friendly and the price was appropriate for the facility. The room was clean, but sure smelled like smoke for a non smoking room. Also in need of an update. The continental breakfast was poor, not very good coffee and cellophane wrapped pastries or bagels to toast. No coffee maker in the room either. There is an... More
