I wouldn't bring my wife here, but when traveling alone this flea bag is worth the less than $40 bucks per night being charged. Good points: a good breakfast consisting of a made for you egg and pancake, toast, coffee, fruit, and juice. Located on Route One a quarter of a mile from an Interstate 95 connection. Close to the...

This was the WORST hotel I have ever been to.... The staff seemed to be friendly but as I drove to my room It seemed more of an apartment complex with people sitting in chairs in front of there rooms having a beer!! That wasnt the worst of it... The smell of the room hit you as soon as you... More

The rooms were clean, cheap and dog friendly. That is the best you could say about it. The staff were friendly to the adults but not very friendly to our teenagers. The staff was also not very helpful. First, I had called when we booked to request rooms side by side - when we arrived they were not, even though... More

This motel seems more like a rooming house. There seemed to be lots of permanent guests, not of the highest quality. They didn't honor my confirmed reservation for a smoking room. The neighborhood was somewhat creepy. I left without staying, as the whole place made me uncomfortable (and I'm not at all a scaredy cat)

This hotel was the worst hotel ever! Pulled in late from a long distance drive, forced to stay because of mon refund policy, woke several times to "live ins" fighting, screaming and threatning each other.final arguments at 4am, we packed up and were out by 4:30am! Stay away from this hotel, we will NEVER stay at any choice hotels again... More

whenever we travel south on 1-95 we almost always stop here.the price is always excellent(somtimes half the cost of other hotels nearby) and the free breakfast is good.the hotel looks run down but it's very clean and good for an overnight stop with no frills.very closeby are many places to eat as well as walmart to do any shopping.

Would not recommend this establishment!! When we got to out room there was coffee stains on the counter left from the cleaning crew. The coffee pot had to be cleaned to be used. They state “Hi Speed Internet” in there advertisement. They have a different perception of “Hi Speed” than I do. You could only get one bar of wireless... More

Booked hotel on telephone, without checking reviews. Mistake!! This place is in a poor location, and dirty. Shady characters hanging around, would not stay again.

I'm a contractor who travels and stays at hotels frequently and I have been here for 5 months and am so glad that finally I start a new contract elsewhere! We chose this hotel originally because of the great weekly price but little did we know what we were getting ourselves into and wish we had read the reviews! This... More

Great price. Honestly, I expected worse, but the room was clean. Simple, basic motel, but great for a stop along the way. Internet was secure and quick enough. Beds were comfortable and clean. No smell in our room. Once we got the AC going, it was quite comfortable. Room has TV, frig. microwave. They're not kidding about the breakfast. If... More
