My first room was very smelly and I flushed toilet and it started leaking all over bathroom. Called front desk and they moved me to another room and it was much better, no smells everything was ok. I stayed 3 days and had no stay over service. I noticed there was little help in the whole motel. I've cleaned many...

Breakfast was good, room was ok, carpet was wet from bathroom, not sure why cause nothing was leaking. Bed was pretty hard, glad I only stayed for one night.

My one issue was this strange, burning chemical that was in the whirlpool. It was some kind of sanitizing agent. And it burned my eyes. Also it had a disagreeable odor. Also, the whirlpool pump needs a replacement or a rebuild. Besides that and the parsimonious breakfast, it was a good deal.

Great beds, great breakfast, great price.....as others have warned....the pool is a little cool, but the hot tub was great. Very quiet - we'd stay there again!

“This hotel is on a major highway and the rooms in the front are noisy”
  • The beds looked like they had been slept in before I checked into the room
  • This is how the threadbare pillows looked with all their wrinkles when I walked in the room.
