“Served our needs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2011

Gail was lovely and very helpful upon arrival. The grounds were very well maintained and so was the pool. We were specifically looking for a place to travel with our dog and this was the perfect location. The room was basically clean but in bad need of an update. As soon as we walked in the room we were hit with that old, musty hotel smell mixed with the faint scent of old cigarettes. I had to wash all of the clothes we brought, even if we didn't wear them because they all stunk like the room. (Even the dog now smells like the room.) All in all, great location, a little pricey, dog friendly, nice people, but a little smelly and outdated.

My family and I were greeted by the kindest manager by the name of Ms. Gail. she politely asked how many in my party and for how long i may need the room for. I orginally only needed it for the nite but circumstances changed and I extended our stay for a few more days. The staff here have all been exceptional! the grounds are neatly manicured and the pool is just beautiful. there are several areas to sit and enjoy the surrounding beauty and above all the peace and serenity. This motel is close to everything but yet you feel as tho your in a country setting. and oh by-the-way free WI-FI:) Thank you , Sonya Curry

Room Tip: Just explain your needs to the manager and she will accommidate you to the best of her abilities

Very accomodating. Management goes the extra mile to assure comfort. If you prefer to be acknowledged as more than "just another occupant," consider staying here. No frills, no nonsense. Stroll the well-kept grounds, use wi-fi network, swim, sleep well and enjoy the free continental breakfast in the morning. Decent value.

The service is very basic, rooms are bigger then normal and quite clean.

The breakfast was really poor, at 9 o'clock there was only a cup of coffee and an old dounut left....we were four people and we had to share them.....

In summary you can try this but don't expect nothing more then what a standard service should be.

We stayed in room #1 and thought it was lovely. The beds were comfortable and just what we needed after our long days of touring colleges. They had plenty of channels for my granddaughter, but it was quiet when we needed rest even though it's on a main road. It was very clean and close to everywhere we needed to go. June 16-18

Room Tip: It's economical, comfortable, and simple.

BEWARE! We went with friends and family, so were planning on renting three rooms. First off: This is proudly Christian establishment. Rooms #1 totally smelled like old cigarette smoke (even though the room was marked as non-smoking), the bed covering looked mangy, dirty, and the beds were just broken down. The carpets looked like they were 25 years old and dirty, and it was just gross, smelly and dirty all around. The other two rooms were even worse—with one smelling like smoke, plus wet dog, and the last was a pungent mix of cigarettes, wet dog, and mildew. Topping it off, there TVs were old, the A/C almost inoperative, and the bathroom sinks were yelowed with old cigarette burns. Wow. I've never seen anything like it. We immediately asked for a refund and moved on to another local motel. I really can't believe the ratings this place has gotten (#1?? no way...) The best thing I can say is that the woman at the desk was nice enough to refund our cards without making a fuss. Avoid at all costs until they put some money into a renovation...
