I booked my stay at the Home-Towne because it was the least expensive room I could find. I wasn't expecting much. I was very pleased. The staff was friendly and efficient. The room was reasonably clean. Ventalation was good, good cable. The bed was comfortable. It was a third of the price where I usually stay. Not the Ritz, but... More

Stopping at 1:30am to grab a few hours of sleep, we were told the room was non-smoking but it smelled like 'something' then my wife and oldest daughter stepped barefooted on exposed carpet tack strip at the door. Fine, whatever....we got our sleep and left at 8:00am. Leaving a cash tip for housekeeping of course. We get home to WI... More

I do not take pleasure in rating anything bad, but I have to in this case to save someone else from a potentially bad experience. We stayed in room #231 and it reeked of Diesel so much so that my eyes and nose literally burned. The bathroom was in bad shape (see pics), and mattresses were "springy". These issues ruined...

Dont bother with this cheap and dirty hotel its not worth the money. This hotel is very basic and in need of over hauling. Staff is ok but nothing worth getting excited for. The rooms are dirty and dated. Stay at a motel 6.

We arrive tired after two long days of traveling. The rooms were spacious, clean, and overall very comfortable. The staff was extremely courteous, and offered free DVDs to watch movies. We ordered pretty decent Chinese food for dinner. Would have given five stars had the hot and cold water not been unpredictable. Our only recommendation is take your shower at... More

Good hotel for low budget truckers. Bed was ok, make sure blankets don't smell smoke. They gladly change them if you ask. Never with family and kids. Many bulbs were off in the room. They only pick trash and change towels, no bed sheets are fixed or set properly. Last resort if don't have any hotel. One shouldn't expect more... More

I travel a lot working for Vail in Cali winters and catering in Maine. Stopped at Home TownE Lodge to catch some Zzz. Booked it comparing it to a super 8 type of style. We got there and the women who checked us in was very nice, fast and easy. They even had free movies to sign out to take... More

Older style motel right next to highway. Primarily truckers and trucker students for Werner and other visiting laborers. Nice guests and staff but no breakfast, no exercise room and all exterior room doors. The beds weren't awful but certainly not great. Drab decor, no in room coffee, limited power outlets, no ironing boards or shampoo. Although I think if you... More
