Stopped here for the night on our way back home, and had it not been so late, we probably would have looked elsewhere. The motel is very run-down, and needs some serious TLC. It has great potential, but the effort needs to be put into it. When we first stepped into the room, it smelled musty, the floors and lower... More

Coming along very nice, staff is OUTSTANDING and I have to give a lot of credit to Miss Toya for making sure we were accomodated properly. The entire front desk staff was GREAT!!! The motel has made a 360 change due to new management and it is a very quiet and safe motel. DELETE the old reviews, I did not... More

This is a list I made for myself. Front light switch not connected to anything. No working internet, said it was good in the lobby! Shower is good but control handle holes are too large for covering flange. Bathroom fan nonoperational. Toilet paper roll spindle missing. Left light shade between beds ripped. Chest of drawers has holes drilled in top.

Clean rooms. The service was the best, felt like family. Toya at the front desk always knew our name and went above and beyond. Thank you, Toya( she gets a 5 star rating from us).

This was THE worst motel room I've ever stayed in. Cost $40 with military discount. It was clear zero effort is made on upkeep. It appears to make money anyway by being a party hotel for locals as the Friday night I stayed there, they were completely booked and young people were partying in most of the rooms. Room condition... More

I would not recommend staying here unless this is your ONLY option, and then I would still consider sleeping in your car instead. I hate that the facility was so bad but the woman that helped me when I checked in and out was so nice, she even went out of her way to ensure that I got the military... More

Dirty, smelly, most rooms. Haven't been a room yet where everything worked, ie, fridge,microwave,tv. My company pays for a room here 3-4 times a week, I'll be telling them they're getting ripped off! Here's how filthy the room ac is!

From the cat pee smell to the beeping smoke alarms even after we replaced the battery. We were afraid to get undressed in this place. This place is terrible! Stay anywhere else! The best part of our stay was when we left.
