Recent guest reviews

I believe this is a family run place , we stayed 4 nights and were well taken care of by the staff. The room was very dusty and the tub drain was plugged up - but short of that ,we were happy with the accommodations !

There were flies in the room, carpet was dirtry, and the blow dryer was hanging out of the wall. There was dirt and dust all over the place my vehicle was covered with this matter.

Got my child dumped into my lap after 5 years of a custody battle. I took her back to finish out her school year (7 days) while trying to book the hotel they were booked for the weekend due to the local college having their graduation. I got three days then went else where because I didn't want the long drive home so went like 40 miles away. When I went back I was charged a higher rate because I didn't book it on line. The manager/owner knew I was looking to stay for the full week he even knew I was coming back, I believe this is very poor business since. I know my X will never pay me back so I was looking to go as cheap as possible, and this place was worth the money especially for a disabled person on a fixed income. They are located by A subway and DQ anything else is 15 minutes away

I was very dissapointed with our experience at this hotel, the room was not up to the quality that I am used to from others, there was still coffee from previous occupent in the coffee maker, floor should have been vaccuumed beter...and then our second nite was terrible, there were storms in the area and the power went out in our room, not all rooms just ours, and I had to go ask the desk for a flashlight and he gave me one and and three tealights and said the power would be back in my room soon...well that was 8 pm and the power did not come back on till 6 am...you would think they would have offered another room that did have power, but of course they did not. The next morning I asked if they were gonna comp our room, they said yes but I will see when I receive my CC bill.

It would of been nice to have more towels for our room instead of only two bath towels for us to share. The room was clean. It did not have any of the extras such as shampoo or lotion. For the same price I paid for this room less than a week ago, I had a room in Springfield, Mo. that included an indoor pool/hot tub, breakfast included,extra towels,shampoo, internet and such. This was a hotel just to rest your tired bones at nothing more or less.

experience was average, room was clean and quiet.

We can't access the internet that night, and there was no toothbrush kit provided. I was also told that there is no breakfast provided. I have been to about 4 hotels in the country so far and this one is the worst, though I was charged the most--$55 before tax!

The price was as advertised without any hidden fees.

Was cheap, but not really cheap enough to be worth it. The pipes made noise, I couldn't be sure the beds were clean. The bathroom was clean though. Did have a refrigerator and microwave. TV worked well.

We only stayed for one night and it was nice and comfortable and safe.
