My 50th birthday is next week, I've stayed in hotels in four country's, and this is by far the dirtiest. If I weren't so tired I would go find another room, motel 6 would be two steps up. After checking in, I cleaned the toilet and picked the hair out of the tub. I'm glad that the glasses in the...

Very nice facility. The staff was excellent. Very friendly and willing to go extra to help. We were impressed. The food in the restaurant was good and the staff rally hustled when we had a short time problem. The only down side was the lack of an elevator for someone with mobility problems.

Rooms were clean and well maintained, but beds were too hard for my comfort. The convention facilities worked well for our organization and the staff was very helpful. The breakfast buffet was adequate.

The hotel is old and run-down. They try to cover up the moldy smell by using generous amounts of air fresheners. We were not at all impressed by the staff, who when asked for a late check out made us feel we had really had put them out, though the hotel was 3/4 empty. I now know the reason....

The hotel was clean, and the staff were kind and patient. The room was clean and met our needs. The restaurant was the big surprise.... we had water to drink, side salads (very crisp and fresh), chicken quesadilla appetizer (delicious and fresh, not frozen), the turkey wrap (fresh, and had good fries), patty melt (yum!), and breakfast buffet the next...

Many families from our basketball program stayed here for a large youth basketball tournament. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly, room was larger than expected. The hotel was very accommodating and allowed us to bring our dog, Lucy, who seemed to approve of the hotel as well!
