Disappointed

Okay so I walk in the room and it smells bad. Seems clean though. Staff was never around. Breakfast was totally gross. The food was so old and just needed to be in the trash can. Coffee was alright though. Only fast food around hotel. But was nice to have a gas station on the corner.

Fine for what we needed - Road Trip Stop

This hotel was in secluded but convenient area right off the highway. Rooms were clean staff was very nice and the price was affordable considering I booked it last minute. Overall I would stay there again as a stop in my roadtrip like I did this time.

Not Happy

This hotel is in desperate need of repair and renovation. Staff not friendly and somewhat confrontational. She did change the room from smoking to non-smoking. Room was dirty, smelled bad, and air conditioner so loud I could hardly sleep. Bathroom was old, could have been cleaner with a little bleach. Very disappointed.

Strong Cigarette Smell

Location was perfect and safe. Friendly staff. Carpet seemed a bit grimy. Strong cigarette smell when you walk into room and it was supposed to be a non-smoking room. Bad lighting in bathroom. AC did not work very well either.

Business Trip

Was put in a smoking room that CLEARLY had just had a smoker in it. Slept with the windows open, still felt sick from it. The front desk staff was nice...but would not recommend staying here again.

Country Inn and Suites

The hotel was fairly clean and priced. The only issue we really had was with the staff being foreign and speaking little no english and being socially awkward with us. Their customer service skills were off quite a bit.

Hotel clean & Comfortable!!

Everything about the room was great! Did not expect a refrigerator or microwave which was a plus. The shower has great with lots of hot water. The staff was very friendly. The downside was the breakfast. The coffee was cold. The waffle make had broken that morning. The juice machine apparently was not working as it tasted like you were drinking concentrate. After that, I lost may appetite and did not eat. Overall, I would go back as it was a great value!

Great Hotel, even better staff

The hotel was wonderful, we got there and the staff was extremely courteous. However the room we thought we had booked did not turn out to be so. We booked a room that was listed to be a suite that had a jacuzzi as well as other amenities, but the room we got did not have any of that. We had to upgrade to a suite and pay the difference because of the misinformation given to us not by the hotel but by other sources. The suite was spectacular and the staff was more then willing to help us correct the problem and give us the facilities that we desired. The staff there is clearly top notch.

OK

Room furnishings were outdated and motel seemed to be in need of an update. Room was fairly clean but carpet was old, not particularly clean, and was pulled up in areas (I.e, not smooth and flat). Night clerk was not very friendly. Room was not dark enough because it faced parking lot and curtains could not shut out light from top of windows. Not a bad place but would not choose it again.
