“Great hotel for the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

The room was clean, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The in-room refrigerator worked great and had a separate little freezer section that re-froze our ice bags solid. The a/c cooled the room quickly. The beds were very firm and comfortable. Breakfast is included, and the selection was quite varied for a hotel like this. The price was excellent. We would definitely stay there again.

If you are coming here expecting a "Waldorf Astoria" experience for $50 per night, you obviously don't travel much. This isn't the most luxurious hotel and it is worn and dated. The service however was great, the views were amazing and the pool was fantastic. It was extremely quiet and peaceful. The mattress was comfortable and everything in the room was in working order. The location is very convenient to dining, shopping ect. Everything is within a 10 min drive. All in all I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Don't expect room service, a concierge or a limo for $50 a night.

This motel is a good choice. You get a free breakfast buffet. It is pet friendly with a minimal charge. Some of the lights didn't work but we worked around that minor problem. The shower could be treacherous for older folks as there is virtually nothing to grab hold of to steady yourself. No major problem with cleanliness; bed was adequately comfortable.

Quite simply, the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Just about everything in the room was broken or falling apart. Obviously the ownership is trying to nurse every penny out of the place. Unfortunately I happen to be there the same time as VA Tech graduation so the room cost me $120 which made me sick when I saw and smelled the room. However there was a really bad storm that night so i couldn't leave. Strangely though, the bed was comfortable. As for the rest of the room:
-Table broken
-Lampshade melted
-Safe broken
-Sink falling off wall
-No chair for desk
-1990's TV
-Mold on ceiling
Phone didn't work
