Late at night, burned out from construction traffic, eyes blurring and back aching...and I still wish I had driven farther to avoid this place. The room was noisy, even as far as it was from the highway. There are apparently some folks who live in some of these rooms on a more permanent basis. The only parking near my room... More

Hotel is down a long drive between another hotel and a filling station. It has lots of parking, but the pavement is falling apart. It is very large with at least three building with two floors each with exterior doors. The front building includes the registration desk, a meeting room and a very large breakfast area. Check in was easy.... More

I checked tripadvisor before booking this hotel and found a ton of poor reviews. However, the price was right and there were some good reviews, so we took a chance. We needed a hotel off Rt 95 to sleep on our way south. We checked in at 12:30 am. The clerk was very friendly and helpful. Thought the hotel is... More

This was our last night on the road and we were looking for an inexpensive room close to I-95 (that would also allow a pet). The staff was friendly, the bedroom area was worn but clean, and the bed was comfortable. Paint was peeling off the walls in the bathroom and the toilet had not been cleaned in quite some... More

I had staff banging on my door an hour before my checkout time, telling me I had to leave now, even though I had been promised a one hour later checkout. When I explained this to the pompous, arrogant, aggressive, warden-like tyrant of a man, he just became more agitated and walked off mumbling in some foreign language, clearly displeased.... More

Ok, if you want luxurious, this is not the place for you. However if you want simple and cheap place for a quick overnight, this is it. The room was worn, but appeared clean. I checked the bed linens and they looked ok to the naked eye. You could see the room and bathroom had definite age on them. There... More

Wish we had read the Trip Advisor reviews before we spent 3 nights there. The first room we were in was also occupied by a roach in the night stand. Also house-keeping did not make up the room after 1 day's stay, well, we chalked this up to an oversight. Day 2 another roach on the sink, we requested a... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Do not stay here if you value your well being! This is the absolute shadiest hotel you can imagine. If you cannot afford ten dollars more for any hotel but here. Just stop at a rest stop and sleep for a few hours because its more than you will get... More
