Not bad for what you pay for.

I've stayed at this hotel a few times. Their rooms look and smell clean. They have a good complimentary breakfast buffet. The only downside is you hear the housekeeping carts rolling outside your window early in the morning, not good if your trying to sleep in the next day.

Absolutely the BEST hot breakfast of any motel that offers FREE breakfast in the price. Offering all usual breakfast items including GRITS, SAUSAGE, EGGS, BISCUITS AND GRAVY, OATMEAL, POTATOES and much more.

The breakfast was expensive and not enough food as served. We expected free breakfast for staying at the hotel (like most hotels) but instead they only served two breakfasts per room. So we ended up paying for 2 more people. Along with that drinks like orange juice were extra so had to drink soda for breakfast and plus the buffet... More

The rooms are good and to top off a stay there with a free breakfast buffet. In my opinion you just can't beat that.

Stayed here with a Harrah's reward and it was very comfortable and a good breakfast was included. Beds were very comfortable and rooms were attractive. Older property but pretty well kept. Large pool and attractive lobby. Not fancy but we were pleasantly surprised.

When checking out I was reminded that we were entitled to a free breakfast. It was very good and nice it came with the stay.

Had the breakfast buffet. Eggs, sausage links, potatoes, gravy, grits, biscuits etc. I had the eggs which was ok but they put some new ones out while we was there and they was wet not sure they was done or they poured water in them. The sausage links had a good flavor and was great. My wife said the gravy... More

We ate the seafood buffet and were very disappointed. All the seafood was previously frozen and nothing except the prime rib was fresh. The buffet looked as if everything was already eaten and nothing was left. We went early so it should have been filled with food. The shrimp was not as good as groton's frozen shrimp. For the price... More

Very good buffet with good choices. They have homemade gravy that is excellent. Overheard a fellow diner say that he decided to eat there just because of their gravy. All their selections are keep hot and replaced quickly as they are depleted. The only negative is they don't have bacon on the buffet. It was there and one time but... More

The prime rib on the buffet was to die for! The clams were tender and tasted fresh. I was too wimpy to try the frog legs. The boiled shrimp were mushy. Good selection of desserts. Our server was friendly and a did a great job. I don't recall his name but he was a very buff Cherokee man. The decor... More
