We stayed here again on business and found the room to be clean and comfortable. the heating cooling unit wasn't very efficient and could be updated. It took over two hours to get the room to a comfortable heat level, as I wore my coat until that time and I am not normally a cold natured person. We did go...

I arrived at the hotel, which I booked online, expecting the king bed pet room that I had booked. When I got there, they told me they were out of king pet rooms, and I would have to "Upgrade" to a room with 2 double beds, which I had to pay an additional $11.00 for. I am confused why if...

I was badly bitten by bed bugs in room 219. We requested a non-smoking room; but the bed spread had cigarette burns and the 2nd floor hallway stunk of stale cigarette smoke. The bed spread was dirty. We had an umpleasant stay. We will NOT stay in this hotel again.

I paid $70 for a room with a double bed. Clean and taken care of, mini fridge and microwave in the room. Indoor pool but we did not swim. Owner was friendly after you're around for a bit, but initial impression was a bit cold. Basic breakfast (cereal, waffle maker, breads) and basic room right off the interstate.

Passing through, stopped and got a room and was out the next morning! Breakfast looked good, but I did not eat any!! Book through Expedia for a cheaper rate! Rooms were outdated, but perfect for the price!

Traveling through and staying for the night. Can't seem to get internet. Notified the front office and was told to try again. The room seems fairly clean. Just need a comfy bed for the night. Good value for the money. Pets are allowed.
