Staff was friendly. Room was very spacious and nicely decorated. Walls were thin, though... I could hear the person in the next room coughing and talking. The bathroom fan was noisy and came on automatically when the light was turned on. The bed was comfy and breakfast was great... waffles, sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuits & gravy. I went to work...

Our group each had to change rooms at least once before we had a room that was ok. The carpets were wet in one room, the smell from the pool was overwhelming in an other and one room only had blankets, no comforters. Once we were able to land on a room, it was fine and suitable for the purpose...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I apologize for any areas in our hotel that seem "less clean". We have been running full occupancy, due to "construction" in our area. Our hallways, if not cleaned constantly, will see above average "tracked in dirt." Carpets, comforters, and even pillows will go through a normal cleaning cycle monthly....

He was avery reputable business person and a friend. moved away, but returned often because I had family there. My wife and I had many comfortable nights at this motel. She is...

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I have been a part of this hotel for 28 years and believe there is an amount of pride and commitment that lives in this hotel among it's employees. Possibly part of the hands that built it? Thank you to your friend, and thank you for being a return customer always!

The hotel has a great staff check in/check out. Always has the rooms clean from night to night. The hotel itself needs a remodel which is in progress with hallways. Pool needs work, exterior also. Other than the looks of the hotel, stay is just fine.

The hotel was clean and is worthy of a stay for almost anyone for any experience. It is located in a small area, where hotel choices can be limited and this one give a sense of stability and peace of mind.

Hotel was adequate. Nothing special. One of the two rooms booked had been smoked in and smelled of stale smoke. I mentioned it so that we weren't charged the 300.00 fee for smoking in a room but the desk clerk didn't seemed concerned - never offered another room. There wasn't much in the way of eating around the hotel except...

I am very sorry about the unpleasant smoke smell in the room. I'm not sure what the situation was that evening, but we most certainly have been full. I believe the clerk would most certainly offered a different room if one was available. We get many pleasant reviews from the restaurant next door. Again I am sorry you were unable...

Stayed one night. Room and motel were clean. No suites but our king room had easy chair with ottoman plus the usual desk chair. Set of four towels, very fluffy. No guest laundry. Breakfast was very good with biscuits, gravy, sausage patties (all piping HOT) with usual waffles, cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit. Mexican restaurant next door was very good.
