“Ok for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Shows signs of recent (if inexpert) renovation. Passed my "good enough" test. (No creepy crawlies and my feet didn't get dirty on the carpet). Bed was comfortable, and front desk had no problem letting us see the room. Free breakfast (cereal, donuts, juice, & coffee) til 9am too. Give it a try if you don't want to pay double or triple up the street for some place. As noted, below, this is now a Rodeway Inn.

Ok. This chain has switched to roadway inn. This hotel is easy to get to. Tight parking if traveling with a large vehicle. Outside corridor. No road noise or train noise heard. Room was clean. Was a non smoking room but did smell as like smoke. Room had a busted wall by one bed. Notified clerk to make a note. No problems. Beds are firm and pillows are flat. This hotel is fine for a one night stay where all you need is rest but if a longer stay or perks is needed, there is other hotels close by.

Had driven all day, over 600 mile trip, needed somewhere to sleep & reasonable price. Had coupon for savings, picked them up at welcome center. Arrived and front desk clerk looked at coupon like she had never seen one before then proceeded to tell me all those were full ! Had to upgrade and pay regular price. Got all my things in room cause it looked clean, and I normally spray every room I go to with Lysol starting with bed, pulled comforter down, food stains on comforter( with leftovers stuck to it ); sheets had stains and last to find was a large condom lying in the floor next to bed ! Took a pic to clerk so she moved me to another room and said she would ask about me getting discount ... Cant wait to find out what they say !

Hotel was dirty..was moved to another room that was also dirty..soap and wash rags in shower..and for an extra bonus we found a condom (used) in the bed sheets!!!
They refused to refund money so me and my two kids slept in the mini van.
Dont stay at this dirty place...
They lied about being AAA approved!
