Wouldn't stay here again. The place is run down and in need of repair, ceiling tiles missing, carpet smells, rooms turned into storage with just a sheet hanging over the window, etc. Needs updating. It's cheap and pet friendly, and convenient to the interstate.

If you want to sleep in a motel, chose any but this one! 1) CLEANLINESS: Please find attached pictures with every disgusting thing we found in our bedroom. Pictures don't need additional comments. We even found apparent rusted nails (took one under my foot) close to the door, really dangerous if you have children. 2) SAFETY: To get to our... More

I stopped here after a long days drive from Houston, on my way to Los Angeles. I arrived late and just wanted to put my head down for the next leg of the drive the next day. The staff were polite and very helpful. Like the title says this is perfect for heading west as it sits right on the... More

I personally know that the drive from Houston can be miserable, possibly +10 hours. I'm glad everything went as smooth as it did with you at our motel. I hope on your way back you can stay with us again. Safe travels. More

This hotel is perfect for the price. The typical hotel whiners should just stay home. I paid $39 a night for 4 nights, and loved it. The rooms are big, clean, comfortable, quiet, and the wifi was great. The free breakfast far exceeded my expectations. I will definitely stay here again. Absolutely perfect location also.

The room was clean and in good shape. The staff was friendly and helpful. Everything we needed was close to the motel. Will stay in this motel again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a room you don't need to spend an arm and a leg for.

The staff were helpful. The location just off the highway was handy for our one night stopover. Walking distance to great food joint. However, there was a very strong smell of raw sewerage around the hotel and in the room. We found if we pushed the plugs down in the bath and sink and shut the toilet door, we were... More

I apologize you had a disdain smell that you came across. It must have been from us cleaning that day. We hope everything else was fine. Hopefully we'll see you again in the near future! More
