“Nice and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

This is a very friendly, clean hotel that has recently renovated rooms and breakfast area, They had a cheerful staff that were very helpful and happy to accommodate. The owner/manager, Ricky actually opened the pool a week early for our family stay... awesome! Great place to stay and a great value. Check out their lounge too.

Above average to excellent stay for a much needed rest on a roadtrip. I loved the outlook of the lobby with beautiful stairs. Bathroom was very clean with good looking room also. The free continental breakfast was very well attended to and free food is always good. Overall excellent attempt of perfection of service, staff training, cleanliness, etc. I would recommended for anyone heading that way.

The accommodations at this motel were very adequate. The room and bath were very clean. This particular room had a microwave and a small fridge also, and the slim-screened TV had to be at least 42". Mattresses firm and pillows fluffy, although I prefer a flatter pillow. The staff was very friendly and the "breakfast room" was large and had tables and booths. I was expecting a Continental breakfast,there were a few packaged cinnamon buns and some fresh fruit, but the breakfast could be considered a hot meal. Hot, because there were scrambled powdered eggs, warmed left-over frozen biscuits, funny-looking pan sausage and an assortment of instant oatmeals and grits. The coffee was good, the juice was cold and they even had a waffle iron and waffle batter ready for a DIY. Good nights stay, but go to Cracker Barrel if you want a REAL breakfast!

Room Tip: Rooms have a desk with desk chair. An upholstered chair was also in my room but only an extra table...

My husband said this motel had the shiniest floors in the lobby he has ever seen. The rooms were very clean and we were out back away from traffic. The continental breakfast was superb and very well attended to.
It was a little hard to get to due to all the road construction, once that is done I think it will be fine.

My first glance: a bar right next door, several semis in parking lot, shady looking people walking in parking lot, our room was all the way around the back, it was dark and scary. Upon entering, I noticed it was old, musty smelling. We entered our room and oh my gosh, it smelled just like a wet dog! If it wasn't so late, we would have driven to another motel! Absolutely do not recommend!
