“Nice overnight stop”
Reviewed August 18, 2010

We checked in late and left early the next morning. It was conveniently located just off the interstate, parking lot was well lit, and beds comfortable. Front desk staff and "breakfast lady" were friendly and helpful. Hotel left a gift bag of snacks and bottled water in the room.

Stayed here for one night on a cross-country drive. Needed a pet-friendly hotel that was clean and comfortable, and we found it here. Good size room, very comfortable, clean, great location (check out Frank's italian restaurant just a short walk from the hotel). Two things though about the hotel - they charge a non-refundable $25 pet fee, which pushed our bill up to $102, and for some reason they decided to use metal railings on the second floor (and I believe along the staircase). What this means is that guests moving luggage up and down the stairs and along the walkway make a lot of noise. Wasn't noticeable after about 9pm, so it didn't interfere with our sleep.

We were just traveling through the area with our 60lb elderly dog. I contacted the property directly to ensure they would take a dog that large. They did and even gave us our choice of a non-smoking/king bed room.

They gave us a convenient ground floor room close to a large grassy area where we could walk our dog. The motel is an older refurbished one, however it was neat and clean. The pillows were soft and fluffy and a clean sheet covered the blanket instead of having a worn dirty bedspread.

The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. We appreciated this motel so much we made reservations when we passed through again on our return trip. There is a $25.00 pet charge.
