“HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I stayed here for a week and my room was never cleaned once! Everyday I had to ask for towels. The floors in the room were gross and sticky. I know it wasn't just my room my mom stayed there in her own room, my sister-in-law and mother in law had there own rooms to. And they never got cleaned. I would go ask if they could clean my room and they would write it down and never do. Shouldn't your room get cleaned every day hence it is a hotel!!!???? They would just say they would. You could hear anyone in the halls. They breakfast was not very good. Never cleaned the area up. The waffel maker never got cleaned. The cereal and bread was stale. I would NEVER go there again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The room was gross, the bathroom had visible mold on the floor and above the shower. It really felt just dirty. The pool was fun but so incredibly over chlorinated in burned your eyes just being on deck.

We experienced a helpful staff, clean room, and nice pool. The motel is close to Cracker Barrel and the Emporium restaurant. There is easy access to the interstate and downtown, and the ground floor room was excellent for our old knees.The bed was good and we had lots of comfortable pillows... we were very pleased with our stay, and it was affordable for our family.

Enjoyed the nice clean rooms with quality linens. The wi-fi wasn't working while we were there and it interefered with our business needs but the hotel was central to the homeschool events we were participating in; the staff was friendly and efficient. When you consider this motel you need to realize there is a charge per person per day for using the waterslide in the pool, that isn't in the website, or wasn't when we make our reservation.

Room Tip: remember, charge per person per day for use of the waterslide in the pool.
