I love reading reviews for places like this. Somehow people are outraged that they're not getting five star accommodations for the price of one star lodging. It's basic, clean, close to the highway and reasonably priced. Period. If you're driving down 95 and need a decent place to sleep and shower along your journey, this place does just fine

Stayed here for a few months the staff is super friendly and super helpful. The only bad thing that I found was the sheets, blankets, and towels could all use to be replaced the parking lot could be cleaner!! But for the cheep rate we would stay here again!

This hotel is horribly maintained and managed! I had to go fetch my own towels because housekeeping had not arrived at 8:30 a.m. I asked for 4 towels, the MANAGER, Amanda brought me two and said these was the ONLY towels cleaned, and this is the excuse she gave me, housekeeping was just starting laundry! The room stinks of old...

Its an old Motel, that said the room was clean and well maintained, and for the price, much better than what I had expected. I arrived late, and the "night clerk", a nice local boy (which I later discovered was the manager), personally helped me to my room because I was having trouble with my arthritic knees after a long...

Comfy beds, very clean. You can tell it's old but they have worked hard to update this place with nice counters in bathroom, nice comfy mattress and linens.
