Do yourself a favor. Skip this place!! The beds were horrible. As if sheets/blankets were not changed for several days. On arrival, rude staff. On entry of room, moldy cigarette smell. Bathroom was a disaster. Looked like a pack of dogs left hair in the sink & shower. The bed was even worse. Found red hair, blonde hair and black... More

We ended up here because everything else in town was booked (or way overpriced) during the Blues Festival. The A/C did not work in the entire motel. Later I overhead another guest say the A/C did not work during the festival the previous year either. Coincidence or a money saver for the owners when people are desperate for motel rooms?... More

Motel was outdated, wore out and tinny rooms. Restaurant is great, lounge was friendly and a big dance floor. Just avoid the overpriced for what you get.

Wait staff very quick on their feet, coffee offered very quicly and order taken with same rapidity. Food is very basic eggs,pancakes, simple... More

I needed a shower after I left The Drifter. The place looked filthy and chairs were dirty, see my pix. We got out of there ASAP.

This place has central air-conditioning. Translation: guests have no control over room temperature. Even though there is a thermostat in the room it will do you no good to fiddle with it; it doesn't work. Temperature of the room was not to our liking. We switched rooms but encountered the same problem in the second room. Its centrally controlled; get... More
