“Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

One woman management when we arrived in the evening. She was friendly but on personal phone alot. Overall area looked clean with a home like feel. Pool is in a convenient location and decorative. We had a pool side room...very spacious. The ONLY bad thing about stay..our room smelled like baby feces and we found a bloody tissue stuffed in lamp by the bulb. Lady came right away and removed it...no other accomedies were made. :( minus the mishap and smell...good breakfast and friendly employees.

Everytime I come to this motel, they remember me - the ladies at the front desk are wonderful. I feel like I am coming home when I stay there. Thank you for being there for all of us. I highly recommend this motel

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Location just outside of town. Looks to be an older place with dignity. Room and common areas clean. Room though was a little 'electrical-plug' challenged for computing requirements and in need of some maintenance. Coffee maker didn't work properly, GFCI breaker next to sink kept tripping when I walked by, bathroom a little small, but at least large enough to change your mind once in. Older TV in room, but on final night stay kept loosing channels (don't think was due to motel though). Internet speeds very good and didn't seem to be tied in with TV as other motels are. Staff was friendly and courteous. Lot's of parking available for larger rigs as well. Breakfast was okay with a fair selection of hot/cold foods w/adequate supplies on hand for a crowd of people. The gal there worked hard at making sure everyone was satisfied.

The hotel was up to date and quiet. The continental breakfast was really a full breakfast buffet. The only down side was a bad smell outside that made its way indoors. The pool was nice but not very deep. We would definitely stay again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We needed a handicap room and the room was alright, but the location of the entertainment center made it difficult for a wheelchair to enter. The shower had a large hole in the floor that was covered with some kind of non-skid coating, but the hole was still there. Hot breakfast included was okay, but could have been better.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We spent a night at this property, the 9th of July, 2012. We've been having unusually hot weather here, but after 4 hours, the room was still so hot I prayed for a window to open. When I contacted the front desk, I was told there was nothing wrong with the AC unit, that they would not move me to another room - maybe they were all that bad?

The employees were all sullen and indifferent, and the rooms were shabby and dirty around the edges. I wish I could say it was at least cheap - but at $94.00 a night, it was WAY overpriced. They should only rent these rooms by the hour, as that is the type of place it is...the one redeeming thing should have been the pool and hot tub - the pool was filthy and the hot tub was broken.

Never again
