So the WiFi is great when it works. It would be better if they had system limiters, but if you suggest this you get a lot of excuses. The walls are paper thin so pray you don't have any screamers on your floor. Lastly there was an odd odor in the room and was traced back to the shower drain.... More

Check in was poor. Process was easy but the front desk clerk never smiled or gave any kind of friendly response. Toilet seat was lose. TV didn't work, when I inquired about the problem the same front desk clerk said she didn't know what to do about the problem. Table/desk had silverfish running around on top and bottom of light....

Would absolutely stay here again. A little challenging to get to as my GPS did not show that you have to essentially go thru another parking lot to... More

The customer service at this hotel was fantastic. Dustin did a great job at the front desk and handled a difficult situation regarding our room professionally and courteously. The rooms were clean, the hotel was clean, and the beds were comfortable. I would recommend this hotel.

We stay in hotels all over the country and this hotel is way overpriced for what you get. We used points (thank goodness). The bathroom door is a pullout type which was annoying. The shower door had what appeared to be mold along the outside bottom. No bathtub. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioner worked well. The most... More

Pros: Clean, great location for the living farms site, near a lot of other things to do, staff was fine, received a room where I had requested. Cons: Dated,... More

Located just off the interstate the Sleep Inn was the perfect place to stop, rest and relax. Located in a park like setting one can easily see the property is clean with many updated features. The pool and well stocked breakfast made for a perfect stay.

Had a question about how to do the thermostat and someone came up immediately. Large room, good rate $98 (AARP or 60 years or older). Room was pristine, hot breakfast was nice. Excellent value, I will stay here again when in town.
