“Tried to save money on a hotel, won't do it again.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

It was ok for the short time we stayed (overnight, and it was close to downtown), but I felt like I needed to take a shower when I got home. The bathroom was probably cleaned but still looked dirty and old, the sheets had weird old stains on them, and the blankets had some holes. Wifi was free but very weak signal. I guess you get what you pay for. Next time I'll cut the budget for food, not the hotel.

We stayed here for a night while passing though. The room was acceptably clean, the bed was clean (although the fitted sheet didn't fit very well), the bathroom was mostly clean-it could have been vacuumed better. The staff was friendly and accommodating (gave us easy directions to a place to eat). The breakfast was minimal but looked fresh. Very cute little town

A little ways off the interstate, but not too bad. Front desk who's name was Andrew very nice and helpful. Room okay for the price. Clean bed and comfortable. Room & bathroom clean. The whole motel needs sprucing up...is old...needs to be refreshed. Continental breakfast was ok..Impressed with their outside garden...Did not use pool, a storm was brewing. Would stay again.

Very old hotel. All furnishings were dated but appeared clean. Ice bucket was moldy, so now I am wondering how clean the bathroom really was? Front desk exchanged the ice bucket for a second and then a third one that were somewhat cleaner, but still looked like they could use a disinfectant wipe.

If you are not picky, please stay here. I checked in and found that the mattress had stains that were years old. The bathroom tub had never seen comet. Sad, since this is in a prime location for the historic area.

I was hesitant to stay here at first because it is a older hotel, and yes it is not fancy but I didn't expect it to be so was very happy with it. could not have ask for better mangment they will help you with anything you ask for the nicest management I have ever dealt with. and this is the best hotel to stay in if you are going to the downtown area, trolley is in the parking lot are you can walk it is not a very far walk. hotel is clean has a pool. and the bed was comfy. and it is not far from the gypsy hill park. great town and great hotel. will stay here again. did not try the free breakfast, just because we are not breakfast people, so I don't know how it was. the staff did tell us where it was and suggest we try it. stay here you will not be disappointed
