good value in a pinch

The lobby was small and smelly, the halls smelled of stale smoke. The room was actually clean and fresh, but not very updated. The bed was very uncomfortable, the pillows were lumpy, and the water only got mildly hot in the shower and the sink. The staff was friendly.

cheap, only if in an emergency

This hotel was cheap, but not worth it. It smelled awful.The light in my bathroom flickered like in a horror movie. There are no ammenities...If you don't mind the smell and the dirty fixtures, stay here.

Not what I expected

You get what you pay for. I thought that I had paid for this hotel on a booking site, but I had only made a reservation. The room was dirty, I could barely get into my room, and the lock was not working. I would not recommend this hotel.

Ok,but not a 3 star

My wife had to wait 10 minutes before anyone showed up to check her in. It's a family run business. Just a little run down. Beds were comfortable...water pressure was poor.

Exact;y what I expected for an inexpensive hotel

Room was decent and staff was nice. Nothing special but was fine for a place to sleep. There was hot water but you need to let it run for a while.

Just stay somewhere else..

So in your mind you're thinking, "3 star reviews, I only need one night with a roof over my head"..... Please look elsewhere, and if the only option is not having a roof over your head, maybe consider the park bench if its not too cold out. The owner is probably doing the best he can with a building that should probably be demolished. It's an eyesore as it is with the name on the garish sign not even matching the name of the business. The rooms are a time capsule from the day it was built many decades ago. Everything is old, nothing is new. There are some odd smells to the place that seems to change as you walk from the check in, to the hallway, to the room. I was afraid to put my head on the pillow which had an odor of the last guest, so I wrapped it in my sweatshirt. Placed my bag on the wood table to avoid the carpet and bed. The walls are thin, the noise from the hall was annoying as people moved around, and the coke machine and ice machine sound like an engine without a muffler. This is the kind of place you see in movies where criminals hide out and swat teams kick down the doors. You're going to be driving to where you are going from here anyway, so just get a good deal off the highway a few miles away. How this gets any positive reviews I have no idea.
