Bedbugs

Honestly, before the bedbug issue became apparent, the hotel stay was nice enough. A bit loud, but the room itself was fine. Management immediately provided a full refund, but how do you make up for the hassle of switching hotels, having to have all your belongings cleaned and heated, buying new luggage...

family time!

The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. The pictures that were advertising was not how the rooms were actually set up but that didn't make my experience any less enjoyable.

Small room, but works

Room felt a bit campy, but if you don't plan to be in it long then it works. Location was great, and you get a discount at the Perkins right next door. Bed and Towels were not the softest, but were usable.

lightbulbs

The hotel was very comfortable. The breakfast was adequate but coffee not strong or hot enough. Funny thing about the lightbulbs. We checked in, went to our room, began to turn on the lights, and the lights between the beds had no lightbulbs. My sister went down to the desk to ask for lightbulbs. We thought that was an easy request. Lo and behold, the clerk changed our room. Same style so there is no issue just funny.

Horrible Place

This place was staffed by ignorant people. The room itself was dirty the bed was shot bugs were coming out of the wall. The smoke detector was hanging off the wall and the toilet was barely attached to floor. I was in town for a funeral and called in a complaint once I got home and was basically told oh well not our problem.

Good for the price and location

I was worried about booking this hotel because of some bad reviews but it wasn't bad. We just needed somewhere to sleep that didn't cost too much. It is easy to get to right off the highway and it is in a safe area.
