We showed up and the place was deserted. Get A Room customer service was not very helpful. I haven't determined if I was charged for this reservation. We ended up staying the night in a nearby motel. Pretty surreal experience.

I arrived late (early a.m.). The $55 (incl tax) room I was given was clean with a rustic feel. Wood paneled walls, a large bed, clean bath, and a old tube t.v. added to the charm. No frills, but clean & safe.

Disgusting place, we turned up after midnight as we had told them, no one let us in so we stayed in the car, even though we could see someone in the office, DONT stay there it looks disgusting, as we saw inside a room, and there are better motels near by. Save your money and go elsewhere.

We ended at this place after a long day. The check-in was with some guy who was so high he could barely sleep. Rooms are dirty and completely old. I guess you could survive one day there as we did but I can not recommend this place to anyone.

Young man at the desk, Ty, was courteous & pleasant. 2-queen room, coffee maker, fridge, & microwave is very convenient. The building is older, but clean. I would definitely stay here again for the price!

If this is a AAA approved motel I'll eat my hat. Yes the rooms are clean there is air-conditioning but the curtains are shredded and the furniture is from the early 60s. not retro cool, but retro crummy. Smelled like cigarette smoke. A big wind will blow the roof away, the ice machine is broken, and the outside would fit... More

Booked on Orbitz. Arrived to fund a nightmare. A total garbage dump. Avoid at alllllll costs. Manager refused refund. Orbitz did nothing. Had to eat $70 and move on. In the top five worst motel experiences of my life.

We called at 6 am after driving across country and needed text. The owner gladly answered, and gave us an amazing deal!!! After asking if we could pay extra for a late check out, she gladly told us to sleep as long as we needed, and have the room for the day. The hospitality and kindness of the owner is... More
