We have stayed here many times in the past on our way to Florida. It has been a good while since we have stayed here and it was our first time since the remodel. The improvements are great and the room was clean. We were able to bring our pets, which was great. The complimentary breakfast was good with many...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 January 2017

Check in was uneventful. The room was very clean. Went to Applebee's just across parking lot for dinner,. Breakfast in the morning very early was all you could ask for. They had almost anything you would find in a diner. Eggs,sausage, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, cereal and all kinds of condiments. Would definitely stay there in the future.

Besides the great location, the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Stay away from Hardees! I give them a zero! Would have been nice to know Applebee's was on the other side of the hotel. Couldn't get the vending machine to work, but the front desk took care of us.

This was a fantastic place to nest for the night. Our fury friend was welcome and the motor lodge style was convenient for his walks. The grounds caretaker was pleasant and told us he is adding a doggy walk area. He will add a bag post and really appreciated us cleaning up after our Wilbur. The breakfast was top notch...

If you are looking for an overnight place to stay while traveling this is an excellent choice. Although, it is an older style (outdoor entrances) the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the shower-heads are up high, it is fairly quiet, and you get a nice complimentary breakfast to start your day. Be sure to try out the pancake...

Just needed to sleep & recharge. Great price, clean & comfortable. Microwave & fridge. Several restaurants close by. Decent free breakfast. Our first & second choices were sold out and I think we got the last room here. Would recommend it for quick layover or value work lodging as it had everything you needed, including breakfast starting at 5:00 am.

Booked with a coupon from the state Welcome Centre. Beds advertised as "queen" but are smaller than the 60x80 queen size, but bigger than a double. Property itself is OK; two story brick; easy access parking. Seemed a bit pricey considering all the other properties available at that particular I-61 interchange. Bad news with upstairs customers smoking outside on the...

Requested a handicapped accessible room for my elderly father and myself. They were very accommodating. Room was comfortable and quiet for us. Convenient to highway and great midway stop on journey from southern Ohio to Gulf coast of Alabama. Close to several restaurants and even had discounts available at nearby restaurants after showing hotel room card key. Would definitely recommend....
