One one hand the suites are spacious, with a stocked kitchenette, lots of amenities and with a really helpful staff. On the other hand the refrigerators in our two rooms were both severely dented, the side chairs had ugly stains on the upholstery, and a couple of "pet stains" on the bedroom carpet. We booked non smoking rooms but were...

My husband and I stopped here for one night on our way to another location. It's a good spot, nice and clean. I would recommend staying here and I think it would also be great for longer stays since you have a small kitchen in your room.

We stayed here two nights to attend a concert at the Great Jones County fair. The room was small but very clean. We love having the apartment setting and this did not disappoint. Staff was really friendly and the breakfast was ok at best but this is not a 5 star hotel and it was included. So no complaints really....

Room very tiny and outdated. Looked like a 70s throwback. The furniture was dinged up, carpet stained, mattress thin. We unfortunately ended up in a smoking room (hotel booked full so we were told), so we also had to deal with stale smoke. The front desk offered to spray room freshener for us. Not a pleasant stay 😕

The place was clean...from the parking lot our room. Breakfast was better than most places of this price. Had to go to the front desk for a roll of toilet paper. The roll in the crapper was almost empty. Looked in every drawer in the place and found none. The facility is within walking distance of several chain restaurants, and...

Spent a night here midweek. I had reserved a non-smoking queen suite, but was sent to a smoking room where the keys did not work. They moved me to a correct room. Very good room, separate bedroom from bath and living area. No list of TV channels, so I had desk send me one, a very confusing version. I like...
