It wasn't clean, I didn't feel safe, the rooms are small, the bathroom dirty and it smelled. If you must, go ahead, just be prepared. Not lots of hotels in the area so keep moving if you are able to. Sometimes I-80 is closed so you might have to stay here.

I had to stay here for work, and we were on a budget. The room was small but clean, and the heat and the hot water were fine. I was a little afraid when we pulled up and saw no cars out front. The biggest oddity of this place is the lighting. It's DARK EVERYWHERE. And it's not because there... More

even for a $50 hotel room this place should be cleaner, the room is very basic which is fine, the breakfast was inedible - terrible, thawed out frozen waffles and terrible coffee, we just needed a place to sleep overnight while traveling, we slept fine, i wouldn't stay here again

Cheap, yes. Decent, no. Crap on the walls. dirty windows, broken bed, A/C didn't work, safe wouldn't open. No hot water, it was warm, not hot. second floor exit to outside was boarded shut. CESS POOL! Avoid at all cost!

This was a very nice clean hotel. It was really quiet. The young man behind the desk was very nice and helpful. The bed was a bit uncomfortable. But after driving 65 miles in the snow, a bed of nails would have been appreciated. Breakfast was ok. The usual cereal, toast, bagels, juice, milk, and coffee. I would deffinately stay... More

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your experience. It's great to hear that the staff was nice and helpful. And we are in the process of replacing the beds here at the hotel, so next time we should be better accommodating on comfortableness of the mattress. We hope to... More

This place is a "hole" The young man who checked me in was very nice but he had to open 3 rooms for me until he found one that had a lockable door (the others did not work or the chain was broken. Then he had to search to find one that the tub would hold water since I like... More

Had to stop due to weather conditions. Should have stayed anywhere but here. The room reaked of alcohol, the popcorn ceiling was falling on floor and it was tiny. The carpet was dirty as well as the comforter and sheets. There was hair all over bathroom floor and toilet and bath tub. Only good thing about the room was great... More

The guy working at night was a jerk and rude. We asked what was for breakfast. He listed several things and then said if you don't like it the you can go somewhere else. Both ice machines are out if order so he sends you to go buy your own ice. The soda machine is out of order with a... More

Fine room if all you need is a bed and a shower. The room was clean but the hotel allows pets and I'm reasonably sure a cat stayed in the room before I did as the next morning my eyes were puffy and swollen as I am allergic. Clearly this is not a hotel that washes all the bedding between... More

The three rating was being generous, but the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The overall feeling was that the hotel had seen better days, and if you are accustomed to a good hot breakfast, this is definitely not the place for you. The advertised continental breakfast doesn't divulge that the continent they are referring to is Africa.... More
