Our stay was good and the room was clean .However the bar and restaurant really stank of smoke . The restaurant was well themed and had great food but the portions are quite large. Our stay was great but do not expect the motel to be extremely fancy.

The room was pretty average but clean, next to Casino and a short walk to a Chinese place that was unfortunately closed for the day. Ate at the Casino. Motel Hallway had sort of loose rippling carpet that was laid poorly. Got a good sleep and was off in the AM before the free breafast.

Housekeeping was excellent and the employees were friendly and extremely helpful! Great place to stay! I was surprised that the motel offered a free Continental breakfast to guests with typical continental breakfast including scrambled eggs &sausage.

Room was clean and neat. Cool place with casino. Very reasonable price. Would stay there again. Small town but good for a stop over on a long drive. People were friendly and courteous. Breakfast was very good.

Had a fantastic stay at the Jailhouse. Big room with a really great bed: pillowtop with nice linens. Great value for the money. Be sure to choose non smoking if you don't smoke, as the casino smells of smoke but our room did not. My husband and I stayed in a non pet room, but they have pet rooms if... More

When I arrived I noticed a no vacancy light even on a Sunday evening so I am happy I called and spoke with Darlene to make a reservation. Check in was easy and staff was friendly. I was placed in a room across the street - hotel still had the much mentioned jailhouse theme, along with some awesome history town... More

This hotel is a great stay for the price. It's clean, quiet rooms, and the part we stayed in was just across from the casino and restaurant. The continental breakfast was good and the staff friendly. The dinner we had at the restaurant wasn't anything to rave about, but it's priced quite cheap and the jail cells are fun to... More

The room was satisfactory and served our needs but my review would not be complete without a big thank you to the staff. During the check-in process we were told the motel did not have any record of our reservation. I pulled it up on my wife's tablet and to my horror discovered I had booked the room for the... More

The Casino is on two levels connected by a breezeway. The area just off from main street is bit dark, but has a good assortment of slot machines. You go through the breezeway up hill to second area, which has more light from windows facing a side street. The Casino offers a players card, sadly I was there during shift... More

We were referred here by an employee of another hotel. We were happy to find this little gem. The front desk staff were very helpful, professional and friendly. Our room had our cell number on the door. The theme of jailhouse was throughout the hotel and motel across the street. The room was spotless and large. We had a great... More
