This has to be one of the most horrible experiences I have ever had! The location was sketchy but I tried to make the best of it. The locals living there were not rude, but nosey. The rooms were dated back to the 70's with the exception of the bathroom. Nicer remodeled bathroom ONLY! Unfortunately, I was in the area... More

My daughters mattress was horrible the springs were all shot and it had a huge sink hole in the middle of the bed so she pretty much slept on the box springs. The sheets are so old and have so many pills that they feel like sand paper. Our sink was extremely slow to drain. And the air unit didn't... More

Spent most of the 3 days at the speedway or going around to autograph sessions in town, so was only at the motel to sleep. When you are used to a quiet little 2 stop light town, police sirens and people argueing a couple rooms away aren't the norm. That was the first night, the second night a lot more... More

The hotel is surprising quiet. The room is a great value for the price and the staff is as professional and helpful as a 5 star hotel. The room is nothing fancy, not super clean and a little run down, BUT, for the price, it is a good deal. I will stay here again. On two different trips in May... More

NO room cleaning and NO towels were replaced during our 4 day stay. Fortunately I had a couple of towels in the car. On the 3rd day despite a promise from the Manager for a room clean and sheet change the room was not even touched nor were any towels or sheets provided. Staff refused to even provide another room...

For starters, I have to admit, we got this for cheap. The rate we paid for the room was $43, but we didn't even get what we paid for, we got less than that. Maybe it was just a wake up call that I can no longer expect to pay low prices and get decent service. The lady at the... More

Front desk put the wrong room number in the computer, so someone got assigned to our room and rattled the knob from 3-5am until another employee used the master key at 5am and realized we were inside when he shined a flashlight in my face. They went away after that but needless to say we didn't get enough sleep. Otherwise... More
