This was a good value for what we paid. The girl at check in was very friendly and when she asked why we were there, gave us free slot coupons to the casino and a card to a taxi service. The rooms are on the small side and it was a bit dated but very worth the price. The location... More

This motel is conveniently located off I81 and is pet friendly. The rooms have laminate floors which are so much better than carpeting (but the floors were dirty). The entry rug and the 5x7 rug under the bed are heavily sprayed with a rug deodorizer that is so overwhelming, even keeping the door open for hours did not remove the... More

Was decently clean but did find some girls hair on bed sheets under the blanket. It's a red roof and if you visited one, you visited them all, they all are pretty similar, room entrance is from outside, plenty of smoking access outside and convenient. Room layout inside looks current instead of outdated. This one had a private parking lot... More

Walked into our room and the first thing we find was someone's underwear behind the bathroom door. We ask for a room clean and they were unable to provide that service so they moved us to a different room. Otherwise the location is good, adequate parking, good shower. An ok place to sleep.

Room was clean and comfortable. Water pressure in the shower was excellent. Shower head was tall enough that I could stand under it, which was a nice surprise (I'm 6'3"). Towels were on the small side but I've seen smaller. Water temperature was excellent. Bathroom floor got flooded during my shower but that could have been user error with the... More

The location was excellent. Even it was a non smoking room, the room had a strong smoke smell . Is not the staff fault is the guests that don't follow rules. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. The coffee and the location was great. I will return to this hotel.

We were only passing through the area, so we were really only here to sleep, but it was comfortable; the room was clean, beds were good, bathroom was decent. They called us to make sure our room was satisfactory. There only thing we could find wrong was there was no coffee pot in the room.

Good value for the money. Comfortable quiet room. Take Exit One off local road off I-81. Though the motel does not offer breakfast, there are restaurants to the right at the foot of the hill entrance. I arrived after 8 PM and ate and got gas at the nearby Sheetz. Well maintained older motel in $80 price range - less... More
