Recent guest reviews

I would use the Motel 6 across the way. I am sorry that I didn't.

Room was like you walked into the 80s. The art on the walls even looked like it wanted to leave. Went to take a shower and the water didn't turn on. Even my pets were uncomfortable there 1 of them didn't sleep a wink all night cause you could hear everything. Went to check out and no one was at the window. Finally saw someone hiding and he didn't even bother to move and just said leave the keys there we will get them later not friendly. I will never stay there again!

Dirty, smelly, smoking, promised a rollaway, never got one, uncomfortable, got our fridge at 10 pm, phone rang off the hook, dont go!

The parking lot was dark! felt very unsafe with people drinking and smoking out of glass pipes in parking lot. Check in, clerk behind bullet proof glass, did not seem happy with anything at all. Room smelled like urine, rust in tub, sink and door, found little black dots under pillow(bed bug waste!) chairs where sticky, Wi-Fi was nonexistent. Went to front desk asked for a better room, was told I was in one of the best ones! ask about newly done rooms, we olny did one Room and it has a hot tub and still smells like the rest of the place, will never ever stay in a place like this. Had to stay with a business associate family in there home!

It is off of a busy road and there were construction trucks taking up a lot of parking spaces. Was visiting family so wanted a room close by. Once it was time to sleep there was a lot of noise, people walking and talking outside the room in the hall. Didn't see who they were but obviously they didn't care that they may disturb other guests. Maybe someone had a party there? The coffee maker didn't work, had an old "tube TV" and there was no instruction on how to use the wifi. For the price it was reasonable.

The staff is friendly, there is a cozy bar, and the lobby looks really cute!

Low rate equal low expectations. Bad neighborhood equals bad hotel. Internet did not work. Rooms marginally clean but it was the only thing available and relatively cheap.

This is not a good place for a family to stay. My daughter, Granddaughter and I drove onto the lot and our mouths gaped open... From the outside the place appeared in disarray. I went into the lobby and turned around and walked back out. The physical property and the clientele left much to be desired. It appeared as a transient motel! We left immediately and found another property.

There is a sign in the lobby that reads 'shoes and shirts required' but I saw plenty of no shoes and no shirts. Plenty of microwaves in the lobby but no breakfast. Bugs on the bathroom floor.

when we pulled in the parking lot & saw the condition of this hotel, we stayed in the car & called every hotel/Inn in the area knowing that we would loose the $ already paid didn't matter. Unfortunately due to holiday weekend, shows in the area, & large private celebrity wedding everything was booked - no vacancies. We were stuck w/this run down Inn. Very smelly, dirty, old, very old furnishings & musty. Very disappointed but we slept a few hours, just enough sleep to drive home & left early.

My experience was very average; the hotel is an inexpensive option but there is nothing special about it. If all you need is a bed for the evening, this is a good choice. I wouldn't stay here for any other reason. Also- my bathroom didn't have a working light. A small but frustrating detail.

Great hotel for the money. They have an awesome outdoor pool that has a deep end, very large. Staff was friendly. Stayed here cause there was a blues fest nearby. Perfect for a one night stay. Diner within walking distance for breakfast. Papa Bears. Would stay again. Note there is no elevator for the second floor.

Staff was friendly and courteous but that is the best I can say about this run-down motel that appeared to be very popular for many young teens and twenty somethings and possibly temporary housing residents. Had a reservation for a 2nd night but left early after seeing a small bug crawling on the bed.

Beautiful outdoor pool. Good location, pretty clean, nice staff. The hotel worked for us for a quick overnight.

The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. I didn't expect a lot since it was a cheap hotel. There is a bar on the first floor, so it might be good to request a room away from the bar in order to avoid noise. We were halfway down the first floor and had no problem with noise.

We have a clean comfortable room. The location near a main road is not the best but all other good services make this Hotel a good place to lodge.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was very close to stores and restaurants. Staff was really nice and I can't wait to check out the pool when it's warm.

Checking in was fast and easy. They always have free coffee in the lobby!

hotel was clean but aged...rust and faded stained curtains

The water was hot, the toilet flushed, the lights worked, the floor was clean, the heat worked, and the bed appeared clean. Those are your basic needs from a $30 room. But this is not a $30 room. I had room 105 and the bed felt like two box springs stacked on each other. I slept horrible. I could not get the shower to work and even the husband had a tough time pulling the handle out. Only coffee for breakfast (but breakfast wasn't offered on the site). This place appears to have downgraded significantly since it was a best western. Spend your money elsewhere.
