Nice place

Would recommend Tue, Dec 8, 2015
Clean room and friendly staff. My room was huge with a separate area for the bathroom and closet. It was a little drive from the highway but that made it quiet. Pet area could have been better. Staff was very nice and breakfast was good. I would stay here again.

An enjoyable stay,

Would recommend Sat, Aug 23, 2014
Nice large room. One of the few motels that have sufficient lighting and furniture so that you can sit and read. Also very important to me is how quiet it was at night. Rooms on both sides of me were occupied and yet I didn't hear any noise all evening. Nice breakfast with lots of choices and adequate seating. My only negative comment is that there is virtually no landscaping and every room has a view of the parking lot. But overall I enjoyed my stay.

Shopping hint

Found a nice shopping center at the town center at Broadway and Main. There's also a museum of flight but I didn't have time to see it. Maybe next time.

Surprise Gem!

Would recommend Sun, Aug 17, 2014
What a surprise! Room was so clean & LOVED the bathroom-so homey! The shower was fabulous-tons of water pressure. The ahhhhhhh beds made sleep SO easy! After our 5 hour drive, we needed really comfy beds. The breakfast was quite ample & staff was happy. Definitely consider this hotel as one of the best we have stayed at.

Exception Stay

Would recommend Wed, Aug 13, 2014
I've stayed before and will continue to stay. Everything is great there! I love that they are pet friendly...not the easiest thing to find when traveling. Staff is friendly, even customers seem friendly, what more can you ask for?

Dining

Olive Garden one of my favorites and Red Lobster, never seem to fail me.
