“Not A Tourist Trap”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

I found this little place thru the trucking company I work for. Loved the people who work here, they are friendly, helpful, and ICING ON THE CAKE.... They did NOT treat me like I was a second class citizen just because I was a trucker and not a tourist with a pocket full of cash. No this is not a 5 star hotel.. but it IS comfortable with a dinner that has a nice menu and a little lounge where someone can have a couple of drinks and relax after a long drive.

A place for truckers and long term workers. Rooms are not bad, but only maintained, not very well updated. Showing age. Sheets for matress covers. Comfortable and serves purpose, but not much more. Good location for highway and food.
For me it works. If I was traveling with family, I would probably look elsewhere first.

I checked in back in February 2013 due to the bad weather. I had to stay somewhere close to my job so I could make it to work. The desk staff was so friendly and caring. I got a single room with free cable and wifi for 65 bucks!! Every other hotel was over 100 bucks and or sold out. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling on a budget!
