My family and I spent 3 nights here, we were looking for a inexpensive place to stay, so this place seemed like a good option. The outside appearance looks decent. However the inside of our unit was not acceptable. The bathroom was dirty; hair on floor, the shower curtain and toilet were filthy. The carpet was not vacuumed, we could...

The staff were always friendly n actually cared about there guests. They always checked to make sure that you never needed anything everyday. The front desk were very out going n went above there job titles. I take my hat off to the manager, Mr. Reed who helped with a problem that I'd had. I wish all the other Hotels...

Although from afar, the outside looks reasonable, this is the perfect example of a seedy motel. Upon check it in, it smelled like public restroom hand soap. By the following day, the smell had dissipated, only to be replaced by the smell of wet carpet / wet dog. There were lots of stains all over. The carpet was especially bad,...

I stayed over at this hotel for business for two nights. The room was clean and comfortable. However, the customer service was the best. I originally was going to stay for four nights, but had to leave early due to abrupt work conditions. I originally just wanted hotel credits so I could stay again, but the staff gave me a...

Glad to see Good Nite has gotten a new manager, Fred. Fred is a very friendly gentleman and really knows his stuff. I've been staying here pretty regularly for years now and this is the best it's been. Jose is still here and I'm happy he is. Good prices and my room today was very comfy. Welcome Fred and I...

The staff was very nice and helpful. But the rooms were not. They stunk like stale cigarettes and there is no such thing as smoking or nonsmoking. It was "clean" and functional. You get what you pay for. Thread bare sheets and blankets with very flat pillows. It just wasn't comfortable.

Thanks for the review. I am sorry that the rooms smelled and the sheets were not good. We will be going non-smoking this year. Fred Reed GM

Good Nite Inn has really good service. The rooms were really clean and they had really friendly staff. Comfortable beds, big flat screens and really clean restrooms. Also the prices are really low compared to other hotels. People should really stop by and check the hotel
