Happened to arrive in Ludlow not realising it was a National holiday so finding any type of accommodation was really hard. The outside is pretty horrid with a stale smell in the corridor and room. Once aired it wasn't too bad. The shower was low powered and hard to use. The room itself was clean but was tired looking. Was...

$64.31 including tax for a double Queen! Need I say more? I rated it 3 stars because they don't offer 2 1/2. Please recognize this is in the category of cheap places to stay. If I were comparing it to the 4 Seasons it might be minus 3. It's 3 because I have stayed at some worse and quite a...

Upon opening the door to our room I knew we had made a bad choice. Overwhelming musty smell, moldy lamp shade and bugs in the bathroom sink. Unidentifiable stains on the walls and a tub that had not been cleaned from the previous guests. Having no other option we stayed the night and I will say the sheets and pillows...

Nice place to stay. The staff was accommodating to our needs. We arrived late (after 11) and that can be a problem at some places but not here. The lady at front desk was nice and our room was clean. We will stay there again soon!

Unless you are looking for Posh places to stay, this motel is just right. We saw 2 rooms, mostly because I'd read the bad reviews and was skeptical. But it was getting late and I just needed to find a place to sleep. I was pleasantly surprised to see clean rooms, albeit rustic and imperfect to look at aside from...

Unless you're a fan of shaky wifi, non existent satellite TV, black mold, other people's garbage and half-eaten food, and enough body hair in the bathroom to knit your own shag carpet, do not stay here. Staff refused to honor their listed price on trip advisor until I was walking out the door, and instead tried to inflate the price...

The room was very worn and outdated. The television was also outdated. The tub and shower were in very bad shape with dirty ripped linoleum in the bathroom. Basically, the accommodations were substandard and I would not stay there ever again.

I feel bad writing this, but I would not stay here again. It would only take a little TLC. Well maybe more than a little. There were stained carpets, stained ceiling tiles & moldy molding. We stayed here at the last minute, for one night. I wish I asked for my money back. Most places wanted 2 night min. I...
