“Not thrilled at all about my stay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Not thrilled at all about my stay here. We booked the room on the internet. Arrived late at night after a 4+ hr drive. Was overcharged and assigned a room with 2 double beds even though the booking was for a queen bed.

Room was cramped and smelled of a funny air freshener. One of the chairs in the room was soiled. Beds were uncomfortable (soft and lumpy). Toilet stall was cramped and toilet squealed loudly when flushed. Curtains didn't draw all the way so passersby could see in. Lighting was too bright as well. No breakfast/coffee as part of the deal AND if you wanted ice from the machine, you had to deposit a quarter. And internet had connectivity issues in my first room that was farther away from the office. It was better the second night. Of course, if they didn't have a 48-hr non-cancellation policy, I wouldn't have been there the second night.

I was able to get a refund on the overcharge the next day and moved into a slightly more spacious queen bed room. I think there are many more options in the area for hotels that are cleaner and offer you more for around the same price. I would highly recommend looking elsewhere.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We had tickets to a performance. Looking for something decent, to spend one night after dancing, and just out for the night. This is one of those lil old single story long wing units .... the drive way to the corridor was as neat as a pin, we were greeted by a grounds person with a "Long time no see my friend!" a huge smile and (thought he must have us confused) nope everyone is his friend.... great welcome, the rooms also were clean!!!! and was amazed on how this lil motel had the luck to have its current owners whom take pride in keeping it up. $69. a night, less than a mile to Downtown, only thing the room didn't have was an alarm clock! other than that, the bare basics .... but if your going to go shop or out for the night this is all you need. Taxi service available upon request, front desk helpful.
