This is one of the worst places we have ever stayed at in 41 years. The room was tiny, dirty, smelly, tacky, ceilings stained and drooping in spots, extremely dated. The entire place smells like chlorine. The desk clerk agreed and said he could not figure out way. The following pictures will say it all!

I would recommend to anyone who just needs the basics, shower, place to sleep, tv, and a breakfast! Young gal at the front desk was not the best in her customer service skills, but everyone else was GREAT.

The overall experience was good. Its an older establishment but the friendly and helpful staff made up for it.I just needed a place to sleep and that I got. So that in itself, made for a good experience. I did not expect anything much for breakfast, and it had a little more than what I had expected....there was a waffle...

The staff were very pleasant and helpful. This is an old hotel that is run down and I would not stay here again. Room carpet had stains and wall damaged in several places. Toilet leaked so it kept reflushing.

We got this room for a VERY low price on a popular hotel reservation website. So dirt cheap who can possibly criticize it, It was clean and the staff was most accommodating. In fact, above and beyond. Sure, there are improvements that could most definitely be made but you get what you pay for and we got a great deal...

This was a great deal for a hotel room for a one night stay. They are pet-friendly and include a free breakfast. Nothing spectacular here but the room was clean and the price was great. We arrived late and left early so did not want to break the bank on a hotel.

Nice staff and fresh-baked cookies. Area of town not the best, though. Not scary, just kind of out there and not many businesses around. Room was adequate; nothing fancy. There was free wi-fi and a very basic breakfast in the morning.

This is a budget motel but we had a great stay. Very nice and helpfull staff and the room was clean and comfortable. Nice breakfast. It's a 10 minutes drive when you get off the interstate so that's the only minor negative thing about this motel.

Thank Cas D
