Recent guest reviews

Modest hotel with clean facilities. The best value I saw online.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, and the lobby is attractive, the breakfast area is roomy, but the surprise was the room itself. It was quite spacious, even with a king-size bed. The mini-fridge was quiet (what a refreshing change) as was the AC. We were extremely pleased with the room, the hotel and the staff. I had a special request and they graciously allowed us to have a late check-out time (extenuating circumstances) at no extra cost. Fast check-in, fast check-out. Free wi-fi, flat screen TV, pool (which we didn't use), clean room, clean linens and towels. A lot for very reasonable rates. Definitely recommended.

We were in town for two days to research family geneaology. Welcome was just what we needed after 3 days and 2 nights on a train from California. The breakfast bar was terrific. The pool wasn't warm enough to spend much time in it and the hot tub was out of order, but the ice machines and TV worked fine!!

Room 107. Very loud fan in bathroom and noisy heat/cooling. I was not comfortable in the king bed. It felt bumpy and old to me.

So as soon as we walk in the room a bit smell but turn the ac on to help it pretty much clean the ro was a good size I registered for three people mind you two female with long hair and one male only one bar soap and shampoo conditioner lucky I bought my own but if there is three people checking In plan for three people to inhabit the room pool area family friendly pool cool whirl pool or jacuzzi. Hot relaxing pretty much a good stay hope to come back but please if three people register plan on it. Shampoo conditioner soap etc especially when they check in.

You expect a minimal breakfast at most hotels, but this place even had a self serve dinner! Yea, it was picnic food (chili, large hot dogs and buns, salad, chips & sodas) but it was well prepared and lots of it. The dining room was a nice place for consuming it. AND...the breakfast was equally nice. I'd stay here again, just for the food. Oh yea, the room was good too.

I was looking for a place to stay as I was in town for business. Found this online and was pleasantly surprised. The staff were nice and rooms clean. Had a very pleasant stay.

Good breakfast bar. Easy in and out. TV could use a better remote

hotel was clean, service was prompt and room was comfortable. overall i will definitely be back!

Worst stay ever. I have pictures.

The hotel is situated near several other hotels in the area and is a bit difficult to see from the road because it's actually behind another hotel. They must be aware of the competition in the area because the rooms themselves and the rest of the hotel is very well done and nice. However, we likely would not stay there again because the walls are paper thin. We now know that the guest in the room next to ours likes to hit snooze (as we heard his alarm...twice) and either had a cold or allergies from the number of times we heard him clear his throat. There were also a bunch of kids in rooms nearby, several of whom, were not happy about something. Breakfast was really nice and they appear to have coffee available throughout the day (you'd have to ask just to be sure, we just happened to see about coffee and hot water about an hour after breakfast was done). I think they also have cookies out during the day. Pool and hot tub were nice as well, they even have noodles and balls for the kids which is a nice touch. If not for the super thin walls, we'd certainly stay there again.

We stayed at the hotel for a wedding in town. It was difficult to find the hotel - it's not easy to see from the main road. When we called the front desk to get directions, the woman who answered was unable to provide any directions - all the help she could give was to turn right at the first light, near the gas station. Well, there are a lot of lights in the area and gas stations. They need a more informed desk clerk. Once we found the hotel, our visit improved. The facilities were comfortable and clean. The breakfast buffet was well-stocked and had a lot of variety. Easy to get to downtown Decatur - just a short drive down 51.

I really liked how clean the hotel was. It was refreshing as soon as I walked in. The staff was friendly, the location was located by the mall, the movie theater, and several restaurants.

The room was not cleaned, old shampoo bottles and soap, not enough towels and the frig had old food in it. Then when we checked out they were not certain if we had paid or not. When I checked my statement they had already charged me.

The hotel was great until we had to pay as they didn't have anything from Orbitz on a package deal. The same as with Avis Car Rental. We had already paid in advance so why did we have to pay upon checkout?
