The room stated no smoking, but reaked of cigarettes and beer, the towels were clean,...

The rooms were okay. The staff was nice but could not help us turn off the flashing red light on the phone despite multiple requests. If breakfast is important to you, don't stay here. It was Cheerios, Rice Krispies, and white bread. Bed was a little soft but okay. Room was supposed to be non-smoking, but there was still a...

I normally except the "way the things are" but in this case this motel needs serious attention. Rooms are nice size, but the walls are patched, wall paper falling off, stains on the tub. Breakfast is lacking and the coffee which I tried 3 days tastied strange. One double door to the lobby was blocked with a cone, guess it...

Although I clearly booked a "double deluxe" with 2 king beds, online, they were not able to find my reservation anddenied offering 2 king beds. The room was a dump! The stand/dresser had 3 drawers in it, all broken. The bedding was moderately clean. The floor had not been vacuumed. There wasn't a single waste basket in the room. The...

I have mixed feelings about this place...On the one hand, the staff is great. I had booked the wrong date and by the time I noticed it, a free cancellation wasn't possible anymore. However, they set the booking on the right date free of charge. I'm grateful for that. Nonetheless, we didn't have a pleasant experience at all. When we...
