“Decent for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2008

I've stayed here every once in awhile for the last 10+ years. At one time it was a Howard Johnson's motel. Was here on a Saturday night spur of the moment so without a reservation. They were out of non-smoking Queen bed rooms so I went for a non-smoking King bed room, more spacious, for $10 more.

Somewhat of a welfare motel I believe by the fact I see families packed into some rooms and few vehicles. Never had any problems with the semi-permanent residents other than an occasional noisy room.

Two story building, inside entrance, and all rooms have either a balcony or porch. Could use a little refurbishing but not awful.

Convenient location to Rt 35 and Rt 66. They have a free continental breakfast in the morning but nothing to write home about.

Don't think you'll find them on Orbitz and the like but if you go to their website you can book directly, which years ago you couldn't and would need to call their toll-free number.

For the price a decent option just don't have high expectations.
