Well you basically get what you pay for. I mean for $32/night on Priceline and staying for five nights it's decent. I do recommend bring your own blankets and pillows and soap/shampoo etc. and towels. Do buy your own plates and cups at dollar tree and buy a pan. Small fridge and small stove. We supposably got the non smoking... More

I think this place takes the title of worst motel I've ever stayed in and I've stayed at some bad ones! We booked our trip on Hotwire paid in full and upon arrival at 1:30am another group of people were signing in as well, I was lucky and got the last room but the other group was not. They said...

This is not a place for the easily frightened. It looks like the Bates motel. I checked in and found they were installing locking doors the the front desk. I had to ring a bell to get buzzed in. The employees were kind but it was forced. I got the two queen sized beds I wanted but I also got... More

Staff is friendly, no complaints other than the TV only had 3 channels. Hotel was very accommodating when I was onsite for work. They negotiated a fair rate for me and are very welcoming. They were very helpful when I needed it.

This was such a horrible experience. We traveled over 15 hours straight, arrived around 1:30 am. Got to our room and was getting settled and noticed a USED CONDOM in the trash can. We were disgusted.

We lived at Crosslands for almost a year, from December 2011 until November 2012. Manager Margaret was friendly, professional, and efficient, as was the rest of the office, housekeeping, and maintenance staff. Our experience was very positive, and we would definitely recommend Crosslands for a reasonably-priced overnight stay, or a VERY affordable month-to-month efficiency apartment. My only forewarning: you gotta... More
