This is a quite, and looks to be a family owned and ran business. I have stayed here a few times before and have had no problems to complain about. This hotel sits far enough off the road that the noise isn't a problem. Looks like the rooms have new carpets since my last visit. The furniture is somewhat worn... More

Have stayed here a few times within the last couple years. The furninishing in the rooms I've seen so far are pretty worn. but is sufficent for a one night work trip. The price is normally under most of the other hotels in the area. I see that a few of the reveiwers have mentioned the breakfast not so good,... More

While the room itself was acceptable, the breakfast was beyond terrible. Breakfast started at 6:30. We came in for breakfast at 6:45. Their were dried out biscuits to go with the gravy, potatoes, and a miniscule amount of scrambled eggs. The bar was covered with a tray of eggshells, and unused eggs. None of this was refrigerated. There was the... More

My family stayed here in two very disgusting rooms. Both were dusty and smelled like smoke even though they were supposedly non-smoking rooms. On top of that, my parents' room had bugs in the fridge and shower. Also, one of the sets of lights didn't work, most likely because if the bulb that had clearly been on fire at some... More

Will never again stay at this hotel. The room looked clean enough, and at least it didn't smell funny, but the bathroom and carpet was questionable. The shower curtain had mold on it and the tub looked like it had not been cleaned in a very long time. And the breakfast?? Don't even want to talk about it except to... More

Older motel, but we were very comfortable and the owners were wonderful. We were traveling with our dogs and they put us in a great spot with a grassy area. They were very accommodating and I would definitely stay there again. Great price and value.

FIrst when I arrived at the hotel I walked into the lobby and could smell a strong pungent odor. It smells like if the owners or management use the hotel as their personal home. It smells of Indian cuisine. The room was no better. The bed spread smelled as if it had nit been washed in over a month. I... More
