This is a dump in a terrible area.
It is not just out of the way, I was unwilling to get out of my car to eat. I used a drive-through. The "staff" had no clue, wanted to charge me for three rooms because of an issue between the hotel and hotwire. The corridor outside my room smelled like someone couldn't wait for the toilet. I did not want to take off my shoes and walk on the dirty carpet. Imagine my delight when they offered to let me eat breakfast there. yukkk.

This was one of the few places I could find for under $100 a night in the area. This was not a pleasure trip, we were coming for a funeral, and I was in charge of finding a place for my dad, brother and myself and our families to stay. The rooms were standard motel quality and the pool was small and cold, but the kids liked it. The jacuzzi was very hot and the breakfast didn't have alot of variety, but was enough to get going in the morning. There weren't alot of places near by to go and eat, but we found a few a couple miles up the road that worked for us for the few days we stayed. The TV channels came in fuzzy (need to amplify the signal) and the wirless internet signal was pretty weak, but worked. Overall, a good stay at a good price.

Courteous staff, but advertisements on the web are somewhat overstatements. Room was clean with the exception of the carpet (which was vacuumed on my 2nd night). Continental breakfast was limited and the breakfast room was too warm to stay in for any length of time.

Hotel's location did not make me feel safe. Did not see any security guards on the property during my stay.

This property is clean, well-maintained and well-run. The manager and staff are friendly and courteous. I enjoyed my stay.

The location may not be the best, but is certainly adequate.
