My husband and I have stayed here several times in the last couple of years. It's an older building that needs some updates but it is clean with ample parking. We are always put on the back side of the motel where the wifi is terrible. We couldn't really get it to work while we were there either. There is a bar and the guy running it was very nice. You can play some pool, darts or jukebox while unwinding. There is also a restaurant at this motel but the food is just average. Rooms have microwaves, coffee makers and refrigerators. Bathrooms seem quite small but clean. We will stay here again because we love visiting this part of the state and there's not too many motel options here.

There was nothing special about this hotel. Rooms are accessed from the outside, which is a turn off for some folks these days. That aside the rooms were nice... Average would best describe them. The few staff members I interacted with were polite, which is much appreciated. The area itself has some things to do, but the hotel location really seemed like a highway night time stop. That being said, this location was okay for the night as there was not much else to choose from in the area.

Room Tip: There were signs posted about the bar getting loud at night music. This area near the pool may want...

The hotel is a nice, standard room. I didn't rate it excellent because of a bad experience when I had previously reserved rooms for me, husband to be, family, wedding party & guests. There were discrepancies about the price I was originally given which led to unnecessary added stress, but it all worked out. As far as the staff here, the cleanliness & the comfort everything was fine. There's a little bar/club inside the hotel which is nice. I like the fact they will let you switch your room if you the music is too loud to your liking (which I've never done). The breakfast is not the best for me, I can't eat eggs and I needed a little variety, but hey it's free.

The staff at this motel couldn't have been nicer. The rooms may have needed a little updating, but ours was very clean. Clean trumps decorating every time. We had dinner at the restaurant in the motel. It was after the normal dinner time so there were only a few people there. It was very good, and when our waitress said that she would see us in the morning, we were a little puzzled.
In the morning, instead of the usual cereal/juice buffet, we were directed to the dining room. There, we were given a menu with at least a half dozen choices of full breakfast items plus all of the extras. We ordered what we wanted and she served it. It was a very nice way to start the day. And, it was free.
Hard to beat this Southern hospitality!

With exception of HD TV, most of the room is well used, but very clean and in decent repair. First night the TV didn't work - someone had changed the TV channel from Channel 3 - and it was picking up cable. Called hotel staff and they didn't know how to fix it and they could not locate the maintenance personnel. This might have been avoided if they checked the room after the previous occupant checked out. Overall, though, an excellent value. Although next to the interstate it was not noisy. Breakfast buffet on weekend is better than the 'continental' breakfasts other hotels try to pass off as breakfast.

The appearance on the outside is an old Econo Lodge. I assume that they are remodeling an older place. Paid $109 for a king size bed and felt it was worth only $60. 1. Had a hard time finding a light switch upon entering. The only light switch was by the sink in the back. One corner lamp did not work at all, another lamp was unplugged from previous occupants. Mold in the air vent and mold even in the toilet. Toilet paper holder was missing the plastic rod to hold the toilet paper. The only elevator was old and very hot inside it. Did not stay for the hot breakfast they offered either. We got out quickly.

Room Tip: Don't stay for their price of $109, ask for $60 worth.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your recent response in regards to your visit to our hotel! Please know that we are in the beginning stages of a 3 year renovation, however, some of the items you listed should have been taken care of during your stay! I will address this with the hotel staff! Our elevator is approximately 2 years old, I do apologize that it was extremely hot inside of its chamber! We will contact the elevator repair company promptly!

Thank you for your review, as well as your stay!

Sincerely,
Cary Linkswiler

On arrival the staff for registering was nice and provided us a room quickly. However, the room itself was musty smelling and quite dirty. The sheets were stained and felt as if they had not been removed from the previous visitor. The bed itself had stains on it as well, which looked like blood. I turned over the mattress which was clean. This let me know that the best has never been turned or rotated. Also the complimentary breakfast was not full. The staff members who were over seating the customers was extremely slow and unprofessional. I have stayed in Best Western's before and have never had a problem. This place however was not worth the money I paid and for the future I will drive past such an establishment. It was ridiculous. I would have asked for my money back but we were tired and just wanted to get some sleep.

Room Tip: Don't choose Best Western.
