family trip to pick up belongings

Would not recommend Wed, Oct 7, 2015
We ran out of toilet paper the 1st 2 hrs and no one answered the bell or phone all night. Beds were never made, trash was not picked up, I set the trash outside the door. The only time I saw a staff person is when I checked in . We were there 2 nights.

Hotel is old but adequate for a short stay.Breakfast was not great. Donuts very dry and hard. It was clean and bed was pretty comfortable. Pillows could have been better.

Courteous Staff

Would not recommend Mon, Jun 10, 2013
Nothing special, here. I thought the rates are too high for what you get. Not sure about the entire place, but my room could use an upgrade or remodel. TV/remote did not work, and the bathroom/shower needs a facelift. In retrospect, I probably should have used a different site and bid a higher quality place for less money.

Low Budget Quality

Would not recommend Mon, Jun 25, 2012
That hotel was not worth the 64.99 I paid for it. More like a $35 to $40 room. The amenities did not work, such as the in-room refridgerator and the microwave. The room appearance was okay. Nothing was updated. In fact, the bed had 4x4 boards nailed together for the base with a king sized matress and box springs on it. There was an inch wide gap at the bottom of the door, so you could see outside very well. I was surprised I didn't see any bugs. All that it really had going for it, is that it was clean. That's it.

Great nights sleep

Would recommend Tue, Jun 5, 2012
Found the motel to be very quiet and the bed very comfortable for getting a good nights sleep!

Dining

Close to main highways and a couple family style restaurants.

So disappointed...

Would not recommend Tue, Jun 5, 2012
We struggled up steep stairs that had no handrails - walked into our room and were greeted by Moths - killed 2 of them, and in the process, the drapes fell off the windows (we had more moths that night and the next morning) - there were ant-type bugs crawling on the bathroom floor - the carpets and room "felt" dirty - Just not a place to relax and be able to enjoy ones self. Made mention to the staff about the lack of railing and were told there were steps with railing at the far end of the building....There is one good thing - no, 2 good things to say - we were only there 2 nights and the bed WAS very comfortable.

All in all? Good weekend

Would not recommend Sun, Apr 18, 2010
Was very annoyed that roofers and pounding started so early in the morning on the weekends. Saturday wasnt so bad we had to be on the move early. However, on Sunday I would have rather been able to sleep, then to be woke up at 8 a m with loud construction noise.Was offered a room move away from the noise but declined not realizing the Sunday schedule. I wish it would have been posted on the description prior to booking.

Dining

The best shopping and dining choices.

not what it seems

Would not recommend Sun, Oct 4, 2009
At first glance for the money it seemed alright. But as we settled in there was a lot of maintenance that need to be done. The headboard on the bed was falling off the wall. Light bulbs that didn't work. The faucet for the tub and shower came out of the wall when you pulled it on. Caulking was coming off and moldy. Very poorly maintained. Also the door stuck to the rug when you tried to open and close it. Won't stay there again.
