5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We found this place to be an excellent place to stay for us baby-boomers. It's not your 5 star hotel - but then again we didn't want a 5-$tar hotel. The motel has great bang-for-the-buck value for us older baby-boomers! The rooms were clean, comfortable and HUGE! The breakfast was nothing fancy,and was more than adequate. There was plenty to eat and the staff kept it clean and well-stocked. We particularly liked the proximity of this hotel to I-75 & I-64. Easy off and easy on. We also liked that our favorite restaurants were practically within walking distance of the hotel; Cracker Barrell, Bob Evans, McDonalds, etc. The reservation clerk, "Teddy" who booked our rooms was a model of what you hope a front-desk person to be. He was courteous, clear and very helpful. We were traveling with our mother who has Alzheimer’s disease, and so it was very important that we had adjoining rooms which were accessible from each other during the evening. (pass-through door) Teddy made sure that we had those rooms reserved - added notes to the reservation stressing the importance - and even gave us his personal cell phone number should there be any problem. We regularly travel back and forth between Illinois and North Carolina. This motel is about half-way. We will definitely stay here again!
