Overnight after game

My friend and I stayed here for one night after a game, and we honestly only stayed here because all the other hotels were booked. The fire alarm kept going off and kept us up. Not very amenities, kinda dirty feeling.

Depressing hotel

No iron, alarm clock, or shampoo. The price was cheap at least. This place is a better option than a park bench but if you have any other options use them. I'd stay again only if everything in town were sold out or way too expensive. Any price for this place more than halfway through double digits is far too much.

Good Little Place To Stay

This is a great value and what I have always found is that the Motel Staff are always VERY FRIENDLY,and go out of their way to ensure guests are comfortable.For a no frills place this one is comfortable and close to everything.

Adequate for football weekends only

when you're desperate to beat a 2 night minimum required by most hotels on football weekends this is an ok choice. We've stayed here twice only when we've had to. Rooms are "bare bones" with towels and a small bar of soap only. Room smelled very old but the bed was comfortable. If you need a place to just sleep for 6 hours after a big game then this will do

Business Trip

The room was very clean, but small. Only about 2 feet in between the two double beds. No coffee maker, microwave or refrigerator in the room. Staff was friendly.

One night stay

A few friends and myself we're road tripping from Miami up for FISS we were only staying for one night so the price we paid we a steal considering every hotel in the area was booked. The staff was so nice and accommodating to any of our needs.

Cheapest room near interstate

Absolutely no amenities. Very worn room but overall cleanliness was better than expected and security was adequate except outside layout. For $45 total It seemed fine for just sleeping. Rooms have no shampoo or tissue, thin quilted covers, old TV basic cable, no radio, no pen/paper, no coffee or breakfast on site at all. None of this matters to me, I could walk to food and stores if needed. Easy on to I-75.
