“Dated but clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Our room was dated for sure, whoever had tiled the bathroom should have been fired... but the room was very clean, the carpet appeared new, the sheets and towels smelled fresh and clean, and the bed was so comfortable, much better than I would have expected. The room was large, we had a King bed an sofa an fridge and microwave and tv and a desk. We just need a place to sleep on a long drive, but I would have had no problem staying a day or two if needed, I would stay there again. There is a pool, that we didn't use, but it was nice and clean, a good sign!

Using Priceline we got this room for a pretty good price- tried to get one for my mom. & her husband but it wouldnt go thru so we just checked in @ the front desk. They couldnt honor that price but their regular price was less than a $1 more!! Front desk was Very helpful!! The rooms were clean, maybe a bit dated but good with a very comfy bed !! Great mexican food next door! Would definitely stay again!

Arrived here late at night, just looking for a room for a few hours of sleep. Our first clue should have been that the night clerk checked us in behind a glass window with presumably bullet proof glass. Got checked in (for $80 a night mind you) and saw several shady characters hanging around. Proceeded to our room and the smell and horrible pink décor flooded our senses. We got to our room and the first thing we noticed was that the microwave looked like it was run over by a truck. The bed linen was horrible and one box spring had a large brown stain on it that I didn't even want to know what it was. The TV was pretty old and the controller was sticky with something. The pictures online made it look like each room had a balcony when in reality the doors opened up to a foot of standing space and a rail. Proceed to the next morning where we discovered that the toilet was offset so badly that you could practically see the sewage pipe underneath. I got into the shower and discovered several black hairs awaiting me and the drain was stopped up. We got out of there as fast as we could that morning but on the way out it appeared that someone had urinated in the stairwell, Just icing on the cake I guess. I wouldn't stay here again if it was free and I was homeless.

Had a incident on I24 and this was the first hotel available. Very pleasant surprise. Staff pleasant and helpful, room clean and very nice. I travel ALOT and this hotel moved to the top of my list for murfreesboro stops.
reading the other reviews seems like two different hotels. I dont understand. but room 111 was definitely a good room!

I do alot of traveling and have stayed here several times. The staff is always friendly, rooms are clean, and the price is affordable. There are several restaurants close by and a mexican restaurant on the premises that is very good, I would definitely recommend this hotel. Damian, Frankfort,Ky.

Room Tip: I prefer the rooms on the first floor,no special reason just not as far to walk.

Awful smell, smoky, mildew-like. Scratchy, thin sheets, towels, blanket. Paper thin walls, could hear everything next door. (use your imagination). Cheap imported soap, shampoo that didn't lather. Old cigarette stains in the countertops. Avoid this motel like the plague.

Was not expecting perfect at just under 60.00 per night but on a recent 10 day trip payed a lot less and got much better rooms everywhere! Place is run down, added few things but still musty smelling, bathroom pipes coming out of the wall, threadbare washcloths, REALLY SLOW drains. Was afraid to take a shower as shower head barely hanging on. Lots of questionable people around and thin walls. Did not try for any breakfast or even coffee in room as only one cup maker and only one packet.
