“Pretty good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Overall was pretty good. Bed was comfortable, room was quiet, clean and although small, not too small. No bathtub but shower was real big and easy to use. Breakfast was standard. I'd stay again. Staff was friendly and very customer satisfaction oriented.

The place was older but an average place to stay. DO NOT count on getting a good breakfast. Cold cereal, bread and muffins. I was asked what could be changed about the place, I replied, "nothing" because if they wanted to improve they would have to renovate the place. If you like a more than average place I would advise that person not to stay there.

This location was very easy to get to and right off highway 81. The staff was friendly and the housekeepers did exceptionally well with cleaning the room! Overall I am pleased with my stay and would recommend this hotel.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

we were greeted by a friendly person at the desk after a long day on the road. We were offerered hot tea and coffee. We had the use of a cart to get to our first floor room, and were very pleased with its cleanliness, comfort and layout. We had two queen beds, both with good mattresses. We both had an excellent sleep. We awoke rested and ready for another long day of driving.

The breakfast was as advertised, a simple continental breakfast. Good hot coffee, cereal and bagels.

This was, by far, the best value on the road in the area. And my friend and I felt we got very good value for our money.

Room Tip: Ground floor close to the check in desk.

Skip the breakfast. Unsanitary with open cereal containers that were old and scratched. Anyone could reach in. Coffee cold. Room was no better than one star even tho some sites gave it two. Overrated. Room had just a shower and walls were dirty. Old bed.

Having stayed at this motel for many years to attend family Labor Day functions, we were very dismayed by the changes. While some of the long time staff is still there and very courteous and friendly; the overalll management and cleanliness are definitely in need of attention.

During check-in @ 4 pm we requested a room not facing the interstate highway. The person on duty assured us that was not a problem. However, when we went upstairs and opened the door, the room faced the interstate highway. We took the key downstairs and requested a room at the back of the hotel. Another key was given to us. We went upstairs, opened the door only to find it also faced the interstate highway. At this point, we noticed that all of the rooms facing away from the interstate had odd numbers. After requesting a room with and odd number, we finally got a room that was at the back of the hotel. Either the person on duty did not know this or he simply did not care. Either way, additional training { hotel layout or empathy adjustment } is required.

The clientele is also changing negatively. A heated domestic discussion in the crowded breakfast room was ignored and people including myself and my husband opted to finish breakfast in the lobby. Hopefully, a staff member noted the the name of the person causing the disturbance so that a return visiit is banned.

Several nights of needing sheets, towels and attention to the room left us with a very bad impression. On Labor Day we observed that other guests were also carrying towels and sheets to their rooms. A staff member checked the computer and found that no maids had been assigned to clean and restock our room.

We were encouraged by a staff member to write this review. I feel sorry for the conscientous personnel who have to deal with their work environment being far less pleasant since they do their jobs and the jobs not done by others.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere until the problems are addressed.

Room Tip: good luck maybe it was us that were not happy..not even worth 120 for the night..could not wait to...
