The room was very comfortable and there was very little noise that we could hear. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The room, Rm 217, was very clean. We would definitely stay here again. Good breakfast.

We were tired from driving all day and I booked a room at this motel while on the road. It was close to I 40, very convenient for weary travelers. When we arrived, we were given an upgrade to a King Suite. It was wonderful! The most comfortable bed that we had slept in our entire trip West. The staff... More

I am very particular when it comes to cleanliness and found this hotel to be clean, inviting, safe and close to shopping and places to eat. Staff were very friendly, helpful and the breakfast is good. I travel quite a bit for work and will definitely stay here again.

I'm amazed at people's ability to be inconsiderate...no door banging at check in that evening, 6 a.m. next a.m. think every door in that hallway was slammed at least twice before 7. Room itself was nice, weird that outlets built into lamps didn't work when the lamps did. Comfy bed, nice to have a keurig in your room. Auto pancake... More

Ms. Brown, I would be very sorry if you really had this inconvenience but both you and I know that this was not the experience you had. Matter of the truth was you were just seeking for free upgrade and then a free room. It is actually not your fault. When businesses get bad review threat, Some managers become defensive... More

This is a fairly new hotel. Staff is great and very helpful. The room was spacious, clean, and smelled good. Just a couple of things could have made it better: First, I need a temp of 65-68 in the room to sleep comfortably, and the thermostat in this room would not allow me to set a temperature below 70. Second,... More

This hotel is very clean, offers breakfast, and is conveniently located. It's near the freeway but you don't hear any road noise. there's a Dominos pizza nearby that delivers to the rooms too. Highly recommend it if you need a room in the area.
