This place had a pool that was actually heated:-) most hotel pools say they are heated but feel otherwise. The rooms and the facility are older, but clean, and the price was right. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I would stay here again

This was a last minute reservation as I had a funeral to go to. The staff was very nice and the rate for this hotel was priced right. The rooms were very clean and the pool and the pool area were clean.

I've stayed here a few times. Trucker rates are fabulous. Rooms are very clean. Joe is great and makes sure I have everything I need. Dino's restaurant has great food with large servings. The omelets are fantastic. Nick and his family staff the restaurant and are very friendly. I definitely recommend this motel to all drivers needing a quiet place... More

I was looking for a place to stay for a week while relocating for work to this area, and Ridge Motor Inn beat the next-closest low rate by nearly $15 a night. I stayed by myself in what I was told was the 'worker' rooms, meaning those that were not remodeled but still functional. I'll say that for the rate... More

First off, if you're looking for a 5 star hotel don't bother. The building is dated and the place could use some tlc. However, for about 75 bucks a night there is a lot of good things to say about it. It has a full fitness center below. Older equipment but lots of weights, treadmills, ellipticals, and even a room...

Front desk service was great, room was clean with new carpet. Wifi was strong. Pool and hot tub were wonderful. Free coffee all day, no breakfast, but there is an attached restaurant, and several nearby. Can't beat it for the price. We'll stay here again.

Clean facility but needs an overall update. Exterior security never was operational. :( Exhaust fan in bath was extremely noisy. Door had to be shut to use it. Lighting fixtures were broken. Carpet at door thresholds worn and pulled away. No hair dryer in room. No free breakfast provided. It was an old Best Western, now it's an older Worst... More
