5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The Hotel was a very clean and friendly hotel. In my travels I have found it not unusual to find the opposite. From check in to check out I can not find anything that was not way above what I would expect. We were in town for a funeral and the lack of anything to deal with at the Hotel was greatly appreciated. Pass on our beat wishes and thanks to the entire Hotel staff.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

My family stayed the night of Friday, March 22. We arrived early in the day, to take advantage of the pool. The area looked like it had half painted walls and dirty concrete around the pool. All of this would have been overlooked if it had not been for the poor sleep quality and lack of hotel staff response. The noise started about 8:30pm, sounding like a herd of elephants upstairs. By 9:30 I was trying to get my kids to lay down (early morning because of a state volleyball tournament) and the 'elephants' were still running wild (yelling, stomping, jumping, etc). I called the front desk and the attendant said he was about to make his rounds and would take care of it. An hour later, nothing had changed so I called again. The noise might have stopped for 5 minutes and it started again! Plus, the walls of this hotel were so thin we could easily hear conversations in the hall (not just noise but actually understand what was being said).
We had a block of rooms and the next morning, several of the other parents were talking of the same issues from the night before. I complained to the attended during checkout and she apologized and said she'd make a note. I told her I wanted to talk to a manager and she said she would have one call me ... no call has ever been received. The hotel wasn't worth $100 / night in the first place but REALLY not worth it when you can't get over a couple hours of sleep due to the noise all around.

Motel's website says recently remodeled (maybe 2011).
Pros: Very reasonably priced. It was very clean and well kept. Rooms and bathrooms were clean, updated and very nice. Beds very comfortable, not too hard, not too soft. Nice sized flatscreen TV. Cookies in the afternoon for those with a sweet tooth. Breakfast adequate, what you would expect for the price. Staff were VERY accomodating and pleasant. Our refrig was not working, it was replaced within a couple hours. Close to several major retailers.
Cons: The pool is very small but the younger children didn't seem to mind. No hot tub. Pool towels $5 extra (bring your own!)
Tips: Call hotel directly for best price. There are a couple fast food restaurants close by and other places just minutes away by car. There is no place to enjoy adult beverages within walking distance but several nice restaurants w/lounge within a miles radius. Would definitely stay again!
