Fiancé and I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend as we were visiting family. First of all, the photos on the website are not photos of this hotel. This hotel is outdated, not recently renovated as previously claimed, filthy, and disorganized. When we first checked in, we were given keys to a room that was occupied. We barged in on a sleeping guest - this presents a serious safety issue for both parties involved. When we told the front desk clerk, who runs the hotel, he was unapologetic and almost challenged us - he refused to believe there was another guest occupying the room. We were then given keys to the room next door - which was filthy. There was a crusty, yellow stain on the bottom fitted sheet. There were makeup stains on my pillowcase. The newspaper in the room was from the week prior, and the scratchy small towels were stained as well. The drain in the sink was clearly clogged as it was backing up and would not drain. The room was also full of bugs. We felt too dirty to eat breakfast in the morning, which was being served out of a guest room. The list goes on - would not recommend to my worst enemy.

My sister and i meet there to attend a class reunion. Its nothing fancy but they do have very comfortable beds and thats what we were looking for.

The hotel room we were in was a dump!! Holes in the walls and the door lock was broken. The room smelled. One window had no screen. No pool. Would not go back.

Had trouble with electrical storm and lack of information from desk, have a basement, but could have been told of pending storm on arrival.

This is an older motel. The room was clean and the staff very friendly. The desk person even tried to call me after I had left my drink mug at the check-out desk. I had a very quiet & restful sleep.

I made a reservation for April 29th, on a Saturday night, but when I got there the website didn't match what was in front of me. The place is not what it perceives themselves to be. I don't know if they are in denial or just don't care. I asked for a refund and was denied at the counter. I don't like to put people down but this is not right and I would recommend to spend a little bit more and rent a better taken care of hotel.

The sink clogged up, the ice and vending machines don't work. Oh you can't complain non of the phones work. The lock was part way off the frame from being kicked in. You have to go outside to go to the office. The owners lock the door. I asked about a reduced rate. I was told I had room with a bed so the rest was my problem not his! Full price. Oh it's on a dirt road.

Very good value, clean rooms and friendly people. I was a bit worried it would be run down or dirty but I was very pleasantly surprised! And free breakfast, I would stay again.

Our stay was just for overnight, the room was clean, but the heat took a long time to click on and warm the room up. I wish they would have had a free breakfast included.

Parts of the motel were very dirty and unattractive. At 4:30 AM a picture hanging above the bed fell on my face. I was extremely startled and lucky I did not have a heart attack. I tried to explain what happened to the owner, he acted as if it was my fault mostly because he didn't speak English. I wanted a refund but was unable to make myself understood. Whey do you allow someone to operate your well known chain of motels who can not speak our language. Obviously I will not stay whit your motel anywhere anymore. Please correct this concern so others don't have this type of stay Tank You
