Average room

First, I would like to say that it was confusing to find the lobby from the front of the hotel. There is a restaurant in the front of the building with NO clear sign that stated the hotel portion from the restaurant. Our room was on the 2nd floor so we had to go up the stairs on the outside of the building (I didn’t see any elevators available) so it was kind of strange that there was no access from inside the building to the upstairs. The building was noticeably old, but well kept. The room was an average room, nothing fancy but practical.

Quick Stay

We used this room to work with our daughter on some college work for a day. The included wireless was fast and the room was perfectly nice. We stayed in a room with a king bed and a desk. The TV was fine but older.

Served our needs.

Staff was friendly. Room was simple but clean. Bob Evans restaurant next door was a plus. Continental breakfast was sparse. Cold cereal, toast, bagels, danish, juice and coffee. No yogurt or fresh fruit.

Adequate but dated

If you like the 1960's...or can't afford a better place, then this motel is for you. They do include a "free" continental breakfast (which I passed on) and the staff was friendly...but that's it. I upgraded to a King, but the room had dated carpet, dated bathroom, dated TV and the worst was, the climate control was the 1960's "air blasted"...your choice was On or Off...without the "air blaster", it was stale and stuffy, with it on, it was Siberia. The fan blew right onto the bed ( no direction control)..and no controlled thermostat...like I said "On or Off" . Next time I'll spend $50 more for the 21st Century edition hotel.

Not what i imagined

The lobby has a weird side entrance. i drove right by the hotel and into the neighboring restaurant. if it weren't for a friend , i wouldnt have found it on my own. the lobby smelt weird, im guessing the smells from the mexican restaurant were seeping through the open door. the man at the desk, didn't greet me or speak to me other than "Here is a map , you are here. " and walked to the back. it took us awhile to find our room since it was in a neighboring building. our room was okay. the paint was peeling, the shower had something stuck in the drain. the heater never got hot even though we had it maxed. the sheets were rough and scratchy. the location was the only good thing about the hotel. for $40, we stayed at the red roof in danville and got a more comfortable, clean room, and much friendly staff, than the $80 i spent on this hotel. i would probably never stay here again.

Good for a business stay

I have stayed at this hotel/motel more then once over the years. I go there for business and enjoy my stay. The only things that I am surprised about is that they don't have is an iron with and iron board. I also feel that maybe you get what you pay for but some cereal would also make the continental breakfast perfect and then this place would go up on the ratings as a 4 to 5 star place. The people are always nice and helpful and I have never had any problems with anything in the rooms. I thank you to the staff again for the nice stay I just had. See you also soon again!

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

I like the area expecially over the river which is where my business is in Sunbury. A quaint town with shops. The dutch market, Pub across the street for a drink or lunch, giugi's is not just a pizza place, and also the railroad station just of the main route into town depending the direction you are coming from. The railroad station is good for dinner and drinks at there tables or the bar. I always feel comfortable and welcomed at these places. So I recommend all these places because the service is great with very nice people.

Value for the money

Everyone was friendly. Complementary breakfast very basic. Went next door to eat. Would stay again if in area. Televisions could be updated.

My drag racing weekend

Well when I arrived at 9:00pm I went to the front of the building when was very dimly lit. I couldnt find the front office. I asked someone and they said it was on the left side of the building.So I went around and checked in. No problem. I got my card key and tried to enter the room.My card key did not work and couldnt open the door so I used my roommates key and that one opened up. As soon as i opened the door, a horrible moldy, musty smell was in the room. I put the A/C on full blast.My room was a NON SMOKING ROOM too. I settled in and there was flys in the room which was very annoying. I swatted them and killed them. Bathroom was very small, Thats it. Not a good experience and I'm not too picky as I dont spend much time in the room.

Decent Value for the Money

Good location and one of the cheaper hotels in the Dam area. Continental breakfast didn't impress me. Some type of bug in my bed next morning but I pointed this out to front desk when I checked out and they apologized and said they would correct. Overall, for the price, not a bad deal for staying one night.
