I passing through and decided to take the exit. The hotel was easy to find and well lit. Even though it was very late, the staff was very attentive. I was able to checkin very quickly and enjoyed a good night sleep. Being as close as it was off the highway, the location was extremely quiet at night. The bed... More

We stayed here on our drive back from florida to Pennsylvania. The place makes you feel very uneasy. We had our 2 small children with us and trust me I had my pepperspray too. I almost felt like we were in a ghetto. We arrived that evening and left in the morning the breakfast wasnt too bad, the room smelled... More

The Staff was wonderful and accommodating. They switched my room right away when I had an issue. The place is run down but they look as if they are renovating. Our iron wasn't working and the bed was a little firmer than I usually like but both are minor inconveniences. One thing that stood out is that the door to... More

I recently stayed at this hotel after browsing over many other Econo Lodges in the local area and came across this one. First, as other review's have stated it's in the middle of freaking nowhere. I swear I missed the exit a few times trying to find the place. I arrived 30 minutes before midnight and spoke with Mike to... More

We needed someplace to put our two dogs while we mountain biked around the Petersburg battlefield. This hotel was perfect for us. The pet room was on the bottom floor, they have a wide open grass field for them to roam around and go to the bathroom, and the outdoor pool they had for our kid to swim in was... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations! The whole building was very clean. Our room was cleaned extremely well each day. The staff was friendly and gave great recommendations on local restaurants and points of interest. I was glad to see that the WiFi worked well here, not like other hotels I've stayed at where the service is limited. The breakfast was... More

I stayed here two different times and was happy. The staff was friendly and accommodated me. My room was comfortable and clean, the breakfast is continental but they offered hot waffles which was good.

This place is awful. I stayed here for one night at the beginning of a budget road trip around the USA so my expectations weren't exactly high. For the price ($60 inc tax) I expected a bit better. The hotel was practically empty and in a very isolated location. There is nothing nearby. It also looks convenient for accessing the... More

We arrived with a reservation at 4:30 on a frigid February Friday to find the office locked. No one around. After 10 minutes of ringing a bell, a man came around from the outside, let us in and registered us. Our room was 48 degrees, but the heater worked. It had to go pretty hard, because daylight was visible around... More
