We arrived to check in to find no one at the front desk or adjacent office. We had a reservation and there was only 1 other car in the lot. We waited nearly 15 minutes before someone showed up - said she'd been fixing another guest's TV. We went to our room - looked passable until we noticed no where... More

We spent one night here while driving to the Shawnee National Forest. The rate was excellent. The rooms are fine if what you are looking for is a clean place to sleep and shower. The lady at the front counter was very nice and helpful.

Added at charge on bill for a safe that was in the room that we did not use. Did not notice charge until we got home. Breakfast was good, standard fare.... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this small town hotel and a chain I had not heard of until this one. This used to be another chain and all too often when a hotel changes from one to another it's either a downgrade because they lost their franchise or they seem to still be in transition to the new chain.

A friend and I stayed here on the 4th of July. No complaints. Staff was very friendly, bed was comfortable, room was quiet even though it was the room closest to the lobby, breakfast was decent even though we got there 2 minutes before they were supposed to be done, and the hot tub and pool were nice and clean....

Staff is very friendly and accommodating. We stayed with a large group for a basketball tournament and they had a nice room off of the pool where the parents could hang out and still keep an eye on the kids. The hotel was older and the rooms are smaller but still very nice. Our room was very clean. The pool... More

Hotel was very inexpensive to stay at and pretty comfortable. Rooms not overly spacious, but enough for our needs. Rated cleanliness as average. Room was pretty clean, but I am picky and thought more detail could have been applied to corners of room and bathroom. Given what we spent to stay here, I was very satisfied.
