Visiting family from NC and stayed here for a few nights. Nice stay. Felt safe and the hotel was clean. I would definitely stay here again if I’m ever back in the area. Close to restaurants and stores in the area.

First, I want to say I have stayed here at least 10 times in the last 4 years. The new manager is much more polite than the previous one. A light bulb was burnt out when I arrived. The manager was very polite about it, the next business day it was replaced. When you read the other reviews, remember your paying close to half the price of the famous named hotels. Yes, the breakfast is basic but honestly do you think you would get a full meal for this price plus a room? Take your family out for a nice meal then look at the price for just food? Chances are your paying more for that meal than a stay here. Also you get a microwave and refrigerator. Around this area you are not promised a refrigerator and microwave or even internet access for free. The area has its pros and cons. The pros is that it is so far from stores and other hotels that your less likely to get drifters looking at your car etc. The con is you do need to drive to places to shop or eat dinner. I would suggest to try it and say hi or good morning to the staff. They are human too.

Location was horrible. I finally found it from the freeway, no signage at exit, and had to go a mile or more past hotel sighting to turn around. Arrial was on a dead end street and into a trucking lot, scary. Nine pm arrival and gal at front was friendly. Room was ok and clean, but kind of old. Breakfast was next to nothing, not replenished and had to ask for the coffee. Again, it was clean, but creepy. When I saw the outside in the daylight, I knew I'd never go back.
