“good choice in this area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2004

This motel is a good value for $69, and is much better than other options in area. Due to the Army base here, many motels take advantage and have inflated rates for what you get. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast in the morning was fine. I would certainly stay here again especially after staying at other area motels. One benefit is that there are 20 restaurants to choose from, within a mile's distance.

I should preface that the housekeeping staff at this place was decent.

The motel is what was awful!
They allowed a semi-tracter trailer to park just outside the parking lot which is where half the rooms face- the problem was that this truck was a refrigerator truck that had to be constantly started and stopped all night- it was loud enough to hear with the windows closed and the AC on.

Each night a few trains go rumbling by, where you'd wake and think you were in My Cousin Vinny's movie. - Not the motel's fault- but very distrurbing none-the-less.

The pool was gross- black murky green water was quite unappealing-even if it was not the season to swim.

The blankets were ratty and worn-the ceiling in the bathroom was spotted with mold-
the tub was so dirty that it would be impossible to clean- it should have been replaced-there was no bathroom vent- the carpet was stained- a light was broken and you can only watch what is programed on the TV- granted all the major networks [CBS-ABC-NBC-CNN] were on but no FOX-no discovery-history-A&E etc. When we arrived the TV would not work and it had to programed- you couldn't hook-up an XBox or DVD to it-so if you had kids that wanted to play games or watch a movie- you had to purchase through them- or purchase a limitted number of Nintendo games.

We had a fire alarm go off at 2 AM because they switched from AC to heat and it obviously burned some dust and had to evacuate-however they failed to be sure every guest evacuated-which if it was a real fire would be a disaster!

We made our reservation through orbitz and wanted to upgrade to a suite- we were unable to do so- but given the choice to pay for the suite in addition to already paying for the rooms that were paid for. [They only had 2- and given their name- Baymont Inn & Suites-
we were surprised].

If you're planning on staying here- think twice.

I would NEVER stay here again! The first room I was given (Sept. '03) smelled so badly (probably pet odors, as they are allowed) that even the air conditioner could not ameliorate this problem; the second had a toilet that was not affixed to the floor! The maintenance man said that he did not have the "correct bolts," but even when he did get them, they did not rectify the problem. Whenever you sat down, the toilet wobbled and the tank clanged! There was no other room to which to move me that night either, although they did adjust my bill. The woman who replenished the breakfast bar was a sourpuss, and the maid had the audacity to ask if I wanted my room serviced! I thought that is what she was being paid to do.
