The hotel is dated, but it is clean. I stay in hotels 4-5 days a week and clean beats fancy any day. The staff is great and you are close to many great places to eat. If I am back through here will most assuredly stay again. No coffee in Rooms but I have those singles and heated some water... More

It's not a 5 start hotel, but the staff is very helpful! They helped with every question and concern I had. I will definitely be staying here again the next time I'm in town! The only problem that I had was the vending machine was out of Dr Pepper lol

As you approach, the property looks a little shady, but it is actually a very nice area. The room was clean and the wi-fi was good. There was a shampoo and lotion that were both half-used; I did not have a problem with this (just go to the front desk and get new bottles), but I can see how that... More

I stayed for a few weeks in this motel and while it wasn't perfect, it was well worth the rate charged. From my experience the people who work there are top-notch and were always willing to assist with any issues that I might have run into.

We stayed on the back side so our stay was very quiet! The staff was very polite & helpful with anything & everything we needed! Because it was cooler & the weather didn't permit swimming every day we spent most of our recreation time in the side parking lot playing wiffle ball. The back side hasn't been remodeled & I...

This hotel was awful! Non smoking room smelled like smoke so bad to the point where my throat was bothering me from it. The shower was filthy..
