“Rooms vary greatly - average for a low cost hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

I stayed in the hotel twice in March. One of the rooms was angled towards the highway and railroad line. It was extraordinarily loud. I had very disruptive sleep even though I used earplugs. The furnishings were also dirty and smelled. The lampshades were all broken. The room was the cheapest available and only $49.00 so I basically got what I paid for – very low end shelter for the night. The second room was only a few dollars more and it was much improved. Light-years quieter and much cleaner. I doubt I’ll opt to stay in the hotel again, but my best advice is pay a few more dollars for their “best rooms”.

Room Tip: ask for a room in the north building facing away from the highway

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

This is our second stay at this location. My husband drives tractor-trailer and I ride with him. They have a huge lot to park our truck and this is so hard to find these days. The rooms are clean with no smell. The beds are pillow top and are very comfortable. There are 5 pillows on the king size beds and we love that! The furniture in our room was very nice and it all matched. There was a desk and chair as well as a couch and coffee table. This was very convenient for us as we both have laptops. The bathroom was sufficient sized with a toilet and tub/shower combo. The shower water flow was great and the water stayed hot all during our shower. The towels were much softer than alot of other motels and they were very clean. The lighting above the bathroom sink was fabulous. This is very important when you are trying to shave or put make-up on. They had a very good cable package that had just about any channel you could want and the reception was excellent. The internet was not the fastest we have ever had, but it was far better than most motels. We were able to enjoy being online all the while we were there. The room had all the amenities...ie...:alarm clock/radio, ironing board/iron, coffee maker, hair dryer, refridgerator/microwave. There is also a Mexican restaurant right next door that serves great food and a convenience store on the other side for snacks and drinks,This is a very nice motel for the price!

Aug. 4th thru Aug. 7th - 3 nights
For the price we were very pleased. Other motels were booked for the weekend, so this was a second choice. It will be first choice next time. The rooms were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. I have stayed in many other motels with beds that were not comfortable so I know what that is like. Staff was very nice and accomadating.

The rooms were immaculate and had a microwave and fridge! Iron, ironing board, blow dryer, in room coffee and a continental breakfast! Also a nice swimming pool and even a room with a few exercise machines! Management and staff very friendly and puts you the customer - first! My husband is disabled and cannot take stairs, so we were put on the lower floor and near the pool.
The mexican food restaurant next door is excellent! Great food and great prices!
We are more than pleased, and have to return soon to Temple, and this is the ONLY place we will stay.

What stuck out in my mind the most was the cleanliness of the rooms. They were spotless, didn't smell of smoke...actually smelled good! The noise level was minimal. The maintenance and housekeeping staff were excellent.
