“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

My husband and I spent one night here and I can't say enough good things about it. The room was huge, we had two queen beds, recliner chair, table, two arm chairs, coffee maker, refrigerator, micro wave and safe. This was a standard room, not a suite.
The room was very clean, ample lighting in the room, super comfortable beds, linens, pillows, etc.
They have a nice continental breakfast which has many items including waffles and fruit.
There was a little noise coming from the road but nothing major. We felt completely safe while staying here.
I think Trevor was the young gentleman who checked us in and he went out of his way to make sure we were happy.
Next fall we are planning on making the same trip and we WILL stay here again, probably for two nights instead of one.

This just happened this evening, this info is via a phone conversation with my Mother: My Mother had booked this hotel ahead of time. When she arrived it was very run-down, there were people hanging around, and she felt very unsafe as she was traveling alone. When she got to the room she said there was barely a lock on the door. She went back to the desk and said she would not be staying there. The clerk then proceeded to tell my Mother some personal information, that I will not divulge here, it was very inappropriate, which made My Mom feel scared. My Mother found another place to stay, however, the clerk CALLED MY MOTHER'S CELL PHONE. Again, I won't get into the personal information of the clerk, my Mother told her to call the police or go to a crisis center. As my Mother was telling me this on the phone the call waiting clicked in, it was the clerk again. I told her to block the phone number.

This was a nightmare of a hotel. The halls were dark and smelly. It was a no smoking facility, but rooms and hallways still had that smell. Outside next to building was empty beer bottles that were there when we came and still there when we left. Room smelled like smoke. Linens did not fit the bed. Woke up with sheets out showing an old mattress. Would never stay there again. Worst motel we have ever been in.

Room Tip: Look at room before you pay to be sure it is what you are comfortable with. I would never have stay...

Older motel in need of upgrading, stained carpets, etc. Staff was helpful and friendly, and changed a room at last minute when needed. Was clean, and decent for its age. Will try another if visiting again, but would stay again if needed.

After reading some negative comments we were a little apprehensive about staying there altho we
had a good experience in 2012...but it was a good experience again because our expectations were in line with the very reasonable rate. Excellent cooperation when we had to change our reservation by one day. Desk clerk was exceptionally helpful and also did a great job of stocking the breakfast. We found plenty of good selections, juice,waffles, boiled eggs, bagels, muffins, fruit (there also was cereal, oatmeal and bread) The room was adequate but could use some newer bedding and linens. It wouldn't take much to upgrade this motel from economy to quality. Using the value club card and reserving on line saved us even more money. Well worth what we paid!

Sluggish staff both morning and night. Card keys would let you in the room, but not the building's entrance at evening. Many basic room amenities not working such as the phone, bathroom fan, sink and hot water. Breakfast was very slim and never refreshed as it diminished. Stained and worn carpets that made you want to keep your shoes on. Then there's the bed.... with the thin sliver of a pillow(s).

Room Tip: Go elsewhere! And if there other hotels are sold out (as was our case).... go to the next town!

We apologize that you were not satisfied with your stay with us and we also thank you for taking the time to leave some comments that can can help us improve our guest experience. We have addressed the issue of our front desk clerk's performance, as well as the the key cards letting guests in the building. We have also addressed the issues of the non-working basic amenities in the rooms. Our breakfasts are now always stocked and will not diminish during the course of breakfast time. As for the stained and worn carpets we have been making a point to steam clean each of the room to make sure our carpets are clean and look as fresh as possible. Our pillows have also been replaced to make them more accomodating to our guests. Our guests satisfaction is our goal and we thank you for taking the time to leave some comments, and we hope that you will come again to see the upgrades we have made. Thank you and have a great day. Safe travels.

We enjoyed our stay at this motel. Staff was very helpful. Room was quiet and comfortable.

The breakfast buffet could use more selections and the lobby was small.

For an older motel it was very well maintained and clean.

We will stay there again.
