My room smelled horrible, just like it did last year. The carpets got wet at some point and were not replaced so my room smelled horrible. I stayed at this place last year too, in a different room, and it smelled nasty as well. Once the smell of mildew gets in, there is no covering it up. They need to... More

Been on a cycling tour for over a month; this was above average but not special. Clean room, barely adequate breakfast, so-so wifi. A couple of food options nearby, but out of town a ways. Rates were high for quality of motel. Served its purpose but hardly outstanding.

Real close to that WSRC for the SCTP NATIONAL SHOOT. Nice continental breakfast. 3 p illows on the beds and firm mattresses. Good water pressure and lots of hot water. Could use better quality toilet paper. I hope they expand.

Management was very accommodating and responsive to our needs.There were no complaints from the 11 families that stayed in our group. This is the third year in a row that we have... More

Stayed here for business for 4 days. To start with the wi-fi is terrible. Dropped internet every 5 minutes is just ridiculous. We had 2 people in room and every day we got 2 bath towels 2 washcloths and 1 towel to share at the sink. Daily we asked for more towels to be left and were totally ignored. If... More

We were in town for a local event and stayed two nights. The hotel was clean. Nothing fancy, but had everything we needed. Bed was comfortable, shower was decent, outdoor pool was clean. My only complaint was the cheap towels. There is a good restaurant right next door and there is a Dollar General within easy walking distance if you... More
