We booked a Non smoking King Size Bed for 1 Night but the room smelled cigarette when we got in our room. We've asked to be transferred to another room but the front desk said that they were full even if we did not see lots of cars in the parking lot. The hotel needs a renovation BIG time. I...

I have found the rooms always clean. I would recommend this location for a short stay. The people are always professional & polite. There are restaurants within walking distance, and a easy in & out to the motel.

Not for everyone, its a bit aged but its cheap, real cheap and basically clean. We had bugs for a week and had to bomb the house and stayed here and it was perfect for the wife and kids. There sometimes is no one there, just bang on the door or call the number on the desk

The room seemed clean enough but the refrigerator was filthy around the door. The room was small with no room for other than a desk-type chair -- nothing like the pictures here. A continental breakfast was included...

Me and my husband went to visit family over easter and needed somewhere cheap to stay. Funny about the hotel was that they had a sign on the desk with a phone number to call and nobody at the desk. A lady came from the back and checked us in. The room was smelly even though it was supposed to...

My mom had to go to the area to care for her 94 year old mother and found this hotel to be FILTY and the staff on the verge of abusive. Stay at the Days in down the street, stay away from this hotel save yourself the aggrivation.
