This hotel is easy to reach from the interstate. It is well-appointed and clean. Our room was attractive, comfortable bed, pillows. Great shower, but shower curtain was hard to keep closed. Simple breakfast, but sufficient with varied offerings.

We lost power in a storm, and after two nights of suffering through the heat, we decided on this hotel. Room was extremely clean, beds were beautifully made & slept well. Large flat screen TV with all the channels, as well as a wall-controlled thermostat for the AC. In-room coffee had K-cup style coffee/teas. Bathroom was clean and well stocked... More

We were traveling from Indianapolis back home to Florida and needed a place to rest our heads for a night. We didn't arrive until nearly 11pm and the front desk staff were very friendly. We had booked the hotel through Booking.com. The room was very clean and we slept well. Breakfast the following morning hit the spot and we were... More

This hotel is right off the I-40 Highway jumbled amid half a dozen other hotels/motels and a bunch of chain eateries. This hotel was actually a pretty sensible choice. The front desk service was good, the breakfast was a step better than anticipated, with eggs to order and a pleasant staff to compliment the buffet. The hotel was clean and... More

We have stayed at this several times as we travel back and forth from Louisiana to New York. We always look forward to it. This time, I left my Kindle by mistake. Staff person LeeAnn Cole sent it on to me immediately, with no charge. Thank you Lee Ann!

My boyfriend and I stayed here while doing a long distance drive with my golden retriever. The man working the front desk was friendly and welcoming and the hotel was modern, clean, comfortable, and located close to the highway. There's an Aubrey's Restaurant right across the street, which is a great choice for dinner/take-out. There's a small pet fee ($30)... More
