“Simple and inexpensive”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

If you are used to staying at 2 star hotels like Hampton or Fairfield, this hotel is going to seem like a throwback. But for elderly parents who are just looking for a place to sleep while visiting me at a cottage during the day, the price and location are right. The front desk help is very friendly and patient with older people who will tell you their life story. The continental breakfast is very basic, the rooms are ok. My parents are clean freaks and they have stayed here 3 times w/o complaint. The AC works and the rooms are quiet, especially if they face the cornfield. Everything in the non-smoking part of the hotel smells vaguely like smoke so I don't think they police that much. And beware, there is NO elevator so if your parents are old, reserve an accessible room.

Room Tip: Back side first floor facing the cornfield.

This was supposed to be a non smoking hotel, but the smell of smoke was very evident in the hallways, everyone commented on the smell...however our room was fine...We traveled with family for a college graduation and there wasn't any place to sit with the family and just hang out other than the lobby and who wants to do that, not very private area? The pool area isn't big enough for a gathering...I think this hotel is more for someone who needs a place to sleep just for the night, not a place for families to gather. The breakfast offerings were limited...The staff was very nice though and our room was clean...

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I remember your group. We are a small hotel and admittedly there is limited room for group gathering for that I apoligize. But I am glad to know your rooms were clean and everyone was nice. As you could tell we are addressing the 6 smoking rooms by new door and windows. The plan is to stop all odor. I am sorry the belgium waffles and Sausage gravy and biscuits as well as the many other items was not sufficient for for you, as a small facility we are not able to provide quality eggs and bacon. I refuse to serve anyone powered eggs and microwave bacon. I do hope to see your family in the future.
