The property was being renovated. Had to pick up breakfast at the front desk, which was fine except for my wife’s chunky milk. I didn’t expect my room to smell so strongly of paint. It had obviously been painted very recently since the smoke detector still had plastic over it. What really surprised me was the guys ripping out all the carpet in our hallway before we were checked out. This is a nice property and the staff was very friendly, but there are other hotels nearby for similar prices that would be better until the remodeling is complete.

A very clean motel with good breakfast.

The hotel was very clean and the staff (Curtis) was awesome!!!

It was very comfortable staying there. I appreciate the cleanliness of my room.

Everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating. Very nice location and great free breakfast!

Beds comfy, shower nice, breakfast disappointing. Toaster broken, coffee cold, understaffed, garbage overflowing.

My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights and it was wonderful!

Hotel was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate.

The staff was very professional. Nice environment. Breakfast was great. Overall the place was very clean and welcoming.

Staff was friendly, courteous and helpful; very polite

We paid $160 for a room which seems high for a hotel in the middle of nowhere. The fitness center was microscopic in size, and the breakfast was uninspiring. The room temperature is controlled via those old-fashioned units that blow cold or hot air on you, and we couldn't seem to get it right. The front desk is understaffed, to the point that they have made a special sign to let you know they have stepped away. We waited about 10 minutes to check in as a result. All in all, it's OK in a pinch, but I wouldn't choose to stay here again.

This hotel provides you with a very comfortable bed, quiet hotel atmosphere and a great continental breakfast.

desk personell were very good

Helpful staff.

We are so sorry that the carpet guys ripped the carpet out during your stay. The paint is a couple weeks old so I'm sorry that the smell from the fresh paint in the hall was so strong for you. We are all trying our best to make the renovations as painless as possible on our guests.
