Stayed here and loved the quietness even thought hotel was full. Went in there during labor day since surrounding hotels jacked up their prices. Cant beat the $67 price to sleep on pillow top beds. Owners needs to watch out who they hire as I had to wait long at front desk to get extra amenities. This hotel should have... More

I was hesitate to stay here but then it turned out to be I ended up staying 4 nights. Very clean and quite hotel. I gave 4 star because pool was covered up and was not open. Pillow top mattress is something hard to come by in an average hotel but this place does have it, no kidding. Towels were... More

If you go by the reviews you would probably never stay at this motel. We decided to ignore the reviews and check it out. The motel is an older one but it was clean. We asked for a handicap room and liked the big bathroom. The only thing we will complain about is the shower head. The folks running the... More

I liked how this property is located. Very quiet and clean parking. The room I had was not so bad but can't complain for $67 plus what I paid. Very basic breakfast and I wish they had fruits. Bathroom was clean but towel was little short in size. I was looking for a place to rest for one night and... More

I consider myself to be a pretty fair person. I try not to be overly picky with amenities and such, but I do expect cleanliness. This motel was far from clean! There were hairs on almost every towel, and they didn't even give us enough towels for my family of four. When my husband requested more towels, the little Indian... More

We spend a lot of time in Lenoir, but usually stay with family or at Comfort Inn. We were passing through late on July 4th, and no one else had availability. We requested a non-smoking room. When we got into the room, it had a strong smoke smell. The sheets had dirt on them and one of the beds was... More

We made reservations for three nights at this motel in advance and asked if the handicapped room was available. We were informed that the handicapped room would be available during this time and it was reserved for us or at least that was what we were informed on the phone. When we arrived at about 1945 my husband asked several... More

I arrived at this motel around midnight. The first room they gave me the air conditioner did not work and it had roaches and ants in it. They moved us to another room and it was completely infested with bed bugs. We were then moved into another room that was not clean with pee behind the toilet. The sheets had... More

I stayed one night at this hotel, my children and I were in town for a wedding. I was highly disappointed in the accommodations, I've had more appealing stays for $29.99 at the Motel 6. First, whoever was responsible for cleaning the room after the previous occupant left Cheetos alongside the bed closest to the wall. I would have assumed... More
