I do not take pleasure in rating anything bad, but I have to in this case to save someone else from a potentially bad experience. We stayed in room #231 and it reeked of Diesel so much so that my eyes and nose literally burned. The bathroom was in bad shape (see pics), and mattresses were "springy". These issues ruined...

Dont bother with this cheap and dirty hotel its not worth the money. This hotel is very basic and in need of over hauling. Staff is ok but nothing worth getting excited for. The rooms are dirty and dated. Stay at a motel 6.

We arrive tired after two long days of traveling. The rooms were spacious, clean, and overall very comfortable. The staff was extremely courteous, and offered free DVDs to watch movies. We ordered pretty decent Chinese food for dinner. Would have given five stars had the hot and cold water not been unpredictable. Our only recommendation is take your shower at... More

Good hotel for low budget truckers. Bed was ok, make sure blankets don't smell smoke. They gladly change them if you ask. Never with family and kids. Many bulbs were off in the room. They only pick trash and change towels, no bed sheets are fixed or set properly. Last resort if don't have any hotel. One shouldn't expect more... More

I travel a lot working for Vail in Cali winters and catering in Maine. Stopped at Home TownE Lodge to catch some Zzz. Booked it comparing it to a super 8 type of style. We got there and the women who checked us in was very nice, fast and easy. They even had free movies to sign out to take... More

Older style motel right next to highway. Primarily truckers and trucker students for Werner and other visiting laborers. Nice guests and staff but no breakfast, no exercise room and all exterior room doors. The beds weren't awful but certainly not great. Drab decor, no in room coffee, limited power outlets, no ironing boards or shampoo. Although I think if you... More

Stayed at Home-towne Lodge, check in went smooth & quick, room was clean, location is good, right off the interstate & next to a Sapp Bros. DVD player in room & they have a selection of DVDs you can rent for free. Manager Patti really went really above & beyond when I realized I had left an item in the... More

Tried the motel because we had heard it was clean and cheap. The front desk staff was friendly and check in was smooth. Upon arriving in the room it had the odor of…I don’t know what. It seemed like they were trying to cover up a foul odor with some sort of masking agent. I hope it wasn’t the smell... More

We stayed there for 5 nights and it was good. Patti was very helpful as was the rest of the staff. It was close to Sapp Brothers which was good since we are truck drivers. We will stay there again, very pet friendly. They are truck driver friendly, with plenty room for trucks with trailers.

We stayed here last week for four nights and it was a terrible experience. We showed up after a 13 hour car ride to check in only to find they had overbooked the hotel and we did not have a room. We waited for a couple of hours and finally got keys to a room but were told it would... More
