“Definitely worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

I've stopped in at Sweetwaters and both times, I've had Amber as my server.
She is exactly what a server should be, friendly, professional, and personable.

“What a great staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Thank you, Sweetwaters, for being at the motel. Accommodations of motel were great and an in-house restaurant was the icing on the cake. Restaurant has great staff. Ask for Candy, she's a wonderful addition to breakfast. Food is good and the buffet is a good deal. If you decline maid service, you get a $5 discount for the restaurant.

Six of us had a great meal once they got it correct. They just opened and there were many errors with the order but the food was good.
