“Good night's sleep in a clean room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I and the dog stayed here for one night.
We got a clean room which smell fresh and the linens were crisp and clean.
It looked like it was recently renovated. No frills but it was just what we needed.
Very clean room real relaxing for a good price. Paid $47 if i remember correctly, with commercial drivers discount.
Friendly staff comfortable nights sleep. Has buisiness desk with lamp. I had my laptop setup. The hotel has wireless which worked great.
Must try Pluckers if you have never had it. Pretty good wings and just next door!

Room looked clean until I hit the shower. It was dirty and so were the towels. Took my shoes off only to put the back on because the carpet was so dirty. I tried the remote control and the main buttons did not work. I tried the microwave and it did not work neither. I talked to the guy at the office and he told he was going to send someone to look at it, he never did. I asked him if I could use the one in the office, but he told me it did not work either. Such a bad service and to costly for what they have to offer. The only good thing about it is its location.

We booked over the phone and specifically asked for a room with 2 double beds and a pull out bed , when we arrived there was a very young girl working the desk and she confirmed the reservations after walking up to the room we were In total disgust not only was it not what we wanted it was very gross , we tired to get a refund and they refused, we had to call the hotels.com and they agreed to refund after a long argument with them and they still have not refunded our 250.00 that they charged for 2 nights, and we had to cancel the credit card and wait for a new one!

We stayed at this motel for our mini vacation. We had two family so we had multiple rooms. Both rooms were clean n smelled fresh. It was not that costly motel so we had a great deal. Location was perfect as we came for shopping n downtown . All staff was great helpful n friendly.

We have stayed for 3 nights in March during the spring break. The Hotel was dirty. No hot water to take shower with. The TV remote control didn't work. Didn't have extra plows. Don't get fooled by continental breakfast. You would get only danish roll. Coffee was taste awful. Overall, it's not a cool place.
