“Truck/RV parking”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

We are taking a trip in our RV and on our way thru decided to stop for the night at the large gravel parking lot of this motel. At 1:15 am we were awakened by a "gentleman" who told us "move or be towed." We take many trips and have stayed at americas best value hotel before when we were traveling by auto, we will never stay there again. And I might add that I do not believe America's Best Value Hotel is not ran by Americans. The lot was very large and not crowded. I hope someday this "gentleman" is awarded the same curtesy he extened these weary travelers!

We pulled in around 9:00pm needing a place to sleep and shower. If I had my way about it I would had stayed down the street. The room was old, carpet had holes in it, as well as the blankets. The walls needed painted, the bed was off level. The door was hard to lock. I would not even eat breakfast because I did not want to deal with the people who ran the hotel. I would not recomend my worst enemy to stay here.

I was expecting a crappy room for the price but I was pleasantly surprised! I've stayed in much more expensive places where there was some annoying problem in the room. Here, even though the building is old, my room was immaculately clean and EVERYTHING worked perfectly. All lamps, microwave, mini-fridge, TV, radio, hairdryer, air conditioner, etc...I had a GREAT hot shower, more than enough towels and a fast internet connection. A decent desk and easy chair and the bed was nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. The staff were very polite and there was a mini breakfast in the lobby with clean tables, and a big screen TV. Give this place a try if you are passing through and you don't have 5 star expectations. Only thing I didn't like was no coffee maker in the room. Stayed 3 nights

Staff was very friendly and nice, building is old, but room was clean and it was what could be expected for the $ you paid. Internet worked great! There was a little fridge which was helpful. Breakfast included cereal, toaster items, juice and coffee. We stayed there three days and it was ok for the price we paid.

I just read all the reviews and probably should have before we stayed there. They are all true! The room smelled musty and like it hadn't been used in a very long time. We sprayed it with febreeze to make it tolerable. There were few cars in the parking lot. When I read that the top floors were not being used, that just scared me. There are many hotels in the area. Do not choose this one!
