3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011 via mobile

My husband and I stayed here for a rest stop during our move to California...rooms were budget friendly and they accommodated our pets well. The breakfast was mildly above average and location was decent. However, the whole hotel reeked of cigarettes...we even joked about the hotel spraying cigarette scent glade throughout the hotel. The rooms were just as bad; they had a strong musky stale odor. Another thing was all there front desk computers were down, making check in and check out a pain. Overall, you get what you pay for. I most likely won't stay there again, but it isn't awful for a night only stay.

I have to say that this is a very nice facility and the staff was very helpful in getting us the right room. We had booked the room through an online discount site. Unbeknownst to us, we were booked in a smoking room (neither my wife nor I smoke). When we arrived to check in, the lady at the front desk advised me of the situation. When I told her that a smoking room was not going to work for us, she was kind enough to find us a non-smoking room. She was also good enough to let me know that often times discount sites often purchase blocks of smoking and handicap access rooms at discount rates so that they can offer rooms at low prices, regardless of your preference.

We will definitely stay here again and our kudos to the staff of this hotel!

We stayed here as it was a pet-friendly hotel (they charge $10 extra for pets). Everything was fair/decent, no problems with anything, everything worked as it should, etc. There are grassy areas outside where you can take a dog. Breakfast was ok, with hot and cold selections. Overall it's a solid place to stay with reasonable rates (ended up paying $70 something including pet fee).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011

The room was very clean and comfortable. We had a smoking room on the third floor. We were disappointed the vending and ice was only on the first floor, so elevator ride up and down if you need ice, although there was a locked room marked ice and vending on the third floor. We were there to visit family, and unfortunately, our phone in the room wouldn't ring in, so missed a whole day with family. We should have called them back, but thought they were too busy with personal business to visit with us. The room had a little refrigerator, that didn't have a temp adjustment, and was turned off when we got there. It took 2 days to get cold enough. A little inconvient since ice was on the first floor.
We didn't use the pool, but it looked clean. The breakfast was acceptable, not exceptional. They do serve a full breakfast with eggs, sausage, hash browns and pancakes. A big plus for me as I don't eat dounuts!! When visiting family, I would definitely stay here again as it is close to their house. Very convient for us!!

This is a basic hotel. Perhaps a little pricey for the quality of the room, but the staff are helpful and the complimentary breakfast includes hot items. I stayed here two nights and was satisfied after an awful experience at the Clarion next door (see my "Never Stay Here" review of that property for details).

We were checked in professionally, to room 124 on the first floor. The room was clean, and the shower was awesome. I would go back again any time, Great place to stay.
