The deskman and handyman were helpful and apologetic, but the elevator was broken, the room door locked us out even when the key slid through with the green light, and the breakfast was tiny. The whole place looked like it used to be a nice hotel, but is now not being kept up enough.

If you need to get off the road because you can't drive any longer, this hotel is worth the small amount they are asking. No frills but clean. Don't expect anything fancy or Egyptian cotton sheets as this is a basic hotel. Not fancy, but clean.

My puppy and I stayed here on a recent road trip from Wyoming to Cape Cod. Klaus and I were met with a smile and checked in without issue. Both the lobby and my room were in great shape and comfortable. If you are traveling with a dog, I recommend this hotel. Although it is a pet-friendly establishment, I couldn’t...

The hotel had a strange smell as did the rooms. Not a horrible smell, it may have been sanitizer or something. But it reminded me of a nursing home. We visited twice and stayed in two different rooms. We noticed the smell in both. The rooms were clean. There was a pool but it was half drained both times we...

Bad, bad, bad. A/C not working right, humidity in room was super uncomfortable, sheets were ripped. Funky smell. WiFi didn't work in room. I was unable to sleep, finally gave up, tried to grab coffee and "breakfast" before heading out. Waited on a line for breakfast which was a joke so I passed it up and had to throw away...

We were travelling for the IndyCar race in mid-July with 7 people, 2 rooms for 2 nights. No discounts allowed so it cost around $600 (compared to their non-event, weekend rates as low as $50/night). We have stayed at many hotels across the country, good and not so good and I have never felt compelled to write a diatribe like...

Surroundings are pretty, employees friendly, bed was OK. Breakfast consisted of muffins, bagels, waffles, coffee, and juice. faucet handle was loose on the basin faucet; no drain stopper in the tub; no shampoo, just conditioner; front desk was unattended for extended times; most channels on the TV were too snowy to watch.

I stayed at this hotel over a year ago in 2013 while traveling for work with no complaints for the price I paid. I was told the pool was under construction and would be open the following month. On 2/14/15 I made plans while in the area to take my wife out for the holiday. So I booked a room...

“My room was on the highway side of the building with a parking lot floodlight pointed directly at my window. This meant that I could choose between an attempt at bringing in some fresh air and no possibility of sleep.”
