This is our first night in the hotel and I am impressed! So much for the price. We had no choice but to switch hotels because our last hotel was so expensive for so little value. I do not remember the gentleman's name that checked us in, but he was very pleasant. As soon as I walked in, I noticed...

Traveled with child for Jr. Olympics competition for a week and the stay was a comfortable one. Manager-Pat provides great service and ensure your stay is a good one. Beds were comfortable, fresh towels daily that smelled great, bathroom was clean and comforter on bed is updated. The 46" flat screen on wall was a huge plus along with in-room...

Some Motel 6s are actually pretty decent. Some are downright awful. There aren't too many in between. This one manages to fit that grey area. First, the good - the rooms and lobby are a lot more along the lines of an Econo Lodge or Super 8, and relatively nice ones at that. In fact, I'd guess not too long...

This motel was very, very inexpensive. The room was clean, other than behind the night stand (I cringed a bit plugging something in). The sheets were stained and mismatched. The tub, sunk, and toilet had seen better days. The towels were small and scratchy. The room had an odor, like maybe it used to be a smoking room and it...

The staff was helpful and pleasant. It is set back from the main highway so has both virtues of quiet and convenience. My room had a lovely new flat screen tv and had been freshly painted (tho the painter was a bit sloppy). The room was basic, no frills. It had a microwave and refrigerator but no coffee maker. Continental...

I recently stayed over a three day period. I cannot say enough good things about the hotel from the staff to the rooms. The staff members that I encountered were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is very well maintained allowing for great curb appeal; once inside it is the same. The room was very clean with numerous...

I found this Inn six months ago and have stayed 3-4 days out of every week since then for work. Their price was the best in town for all the amenities offered. I love the continental breakfast they offer every morning, and the rooms are extra clean and very comfortable. The staff is one of the best I have ever...

I've stopped here twice on 2 different long road trips. The price was definitely right but more importantly the room was cleaner than the average budget hotel. I have found the staff including Nick Rhoades, the Manager to be helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend you check this place out....great location just off the freeway!

These types of reviews make my week! I guarantee every bit of feedback we receive on TripAdvisor is passed on to the entire staff. When we get reviews such as this, it is my pleasure to pat the entire crew on the back. When we are alerted to areas where we can improve, we very thoughtfully use the information provided...

I stay here 3 days a week about 50 weeks a year the whole staff makes me feel welcome. Every stay is like coming homefrom the friendly staff greetings to coffee and breakfast on the run. Rooms are always clean and comfortable, if anything is ever out of place they bend over backwards to make it right.

Dave, thank you for such a great review! You've been coming here long before I started managing this property. We appreciate your continued patronage. Many faces have not changed around here over the years; clearly, the people are who make the difference. I suspect I'll see you this week and will express my gratitude in person. Thanks again!

“Windows you can open and get some fresh air.....love that. Cleaner than other higher priced hotels. Small town.Nice town.Went there for the BBQ contest Pork in the Park 10/18/2014-10/18/2014.

“The phone in room 127 did not work for me. Based on their eagerness to get it fixed, it might not for you, either. If you need the phone, check it as soon as you get in the room. Good luck!”
