I had a last minute trip and was looking for an inexpensive hotel at a reasonable price. Alivia, at the front desk, greeted me with a smile and answered all my questions quickly all while setting me up with a room in no time. The room was exactly what I need, being clean with a King Size bed, free WiFi,... More

Service was surly from time of check in. Any questions asked seemed to really irritate her. Needed location or would not have stayed. Also sketchy area, Room needed in depth cleaning. Surface areas barely ok.

Rooms look like they have been updated recently and look modern, which is really nice. The floors in our room felt a little grimy, so we wore our shoes in our room. There is a Walmart next door, which was really convenient. We did check in at almost 5AM and asked for a later checkout, but only noon was granted.... More

Bedspread was grossly dirty. I get that bedspreads are generally not clean, but this was covered in spots. Blanket had cigarette burn holes, room had bad odor. 100% non smoking hotel, but obviously someone had smoked and staff didn't remove smell or replace bedding. No hair dryer; was advised only superior rooms include hair dryer; never had that issue at... More

We had no room cleaned and ready upon 3pm check-in. We had to either wait or take a room with a wet floor and no clean towels??? I had waited and called for the towels and finally got them at 8:30pm by Olivia whom had nothing to say upon bringing them. So therefore I can't rate or suggest this location... More

The room was clean and well kept. They currently have a problem with room keys. Every time we returned the keys lost their code and had to be reprogrammed. On the first day the housekeeper took the wet towels but did not replace. I am sure it was an oversight. Motel is getting dated, but great location and very quiet.... More
