There was no soap, shampoo, or even a trashcan in the room when I There was no soap, shampoo, or even a trashcan in the room when I arrived

Staff was extremely friendly!! Room was not the nicest, cleanest or comfiest, but worked for a one night stay while passing through

It was what I expected for the price. Definitely not the Hilton but wasn't that expensive either.

Hotel is right off of I-70, which was great. Staff was very friendly. Room was clean but noticed a few bugs in room. Overall room was ok seeing as how its not expensive! You get what you pay for!! ;)

Usually enjoy staying here in the summer & enjoying the pool...but there was some red neck family reunion with a slew of kids.Pool was cloudy & dirty.Kids probably peeing in it.Would recommend.. But just check before hand & see if there are family reunions on the time of your stay!

If you wish to stay at this hotel, find another. The room I was checked into had roaches... not one...or two, but I was awoken to roaches covering my pillows and crawling on me. Horrified, I left the room at 2:30am only to be moved to 4 other rooms that either didn't have working air conditioning or some other problems. This hotel should be torn down and rebuilt. Very outdated and unclean. You'd probably have less bugs on you if you slept outside the rooms.

This motel is a disaster. It is located in a frantic, noisy, decrepit area. Both the exterior and interior is run down and falling apart. The door handles don't work, the key cards won't open the door (I had to get two replacements) and furniture and fixtures are broken. The bed looked like it had been slept in! I wish I had paid a few bucks more and found a peaceful, clean, sanitary place to stay.

could have been better stayed in worse and stayed in better...not much to sat or share...

Even though the rooms were designated non-smoking you could definitely smell the odor of smoking in the room. The rooms badly needed painting, the bathroom toilet reservoir was cracked, the shower curtain and floor of the tub looked mildewed and the carpet by the sink was wet from a leak whose source couldn't be determined. We decided to go eat breakfast at a restaurant rather than eat the free breakfast available because the eating area didn't look very inviting. I can see why the motel would charge $171 if the reservation was canceled after 4 PM 2 days prior to the reservation. If it wasn't for the exorbitant cancellation fee ( about 1/2 of our $333 2 day cost) we would have found another room elsewhere. In short the only thing that I would suggest is that the motel be torn down and rebuilt from the ground up because its beyond being renovated.

The room was reasonably clean. The and pillows need replaced!! Furniture was very worn and the room was not quiet. The milk was sour at breakfast and they made the orange juice with hot water!! I wouldn't recommend staying here.

The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The only complaint is that at 9am, when we got up, my husband went to get ice for his thermos and the breakfast was already gone and cleaned up. The clerk never told me at check in when it started. We were a little surprised it was already gone at 9am. Otherwise it was a satisfactory stay.

We got there earlier then planned and they put us right into a room. It was clean, 2 double beds, was very quiet until about 4AM when someone in the parking lot started reving up a truck backing it back and forth. This went on until approx 5:30AM. No complaints about anything else. Would definitely recommend it to a friend - was very close to where we were attending the event.

Training for new job did not have enough time to enjoy amenities.

For the price, this was a clean and ok place.

It was not very clean, and the fitness center could hardly be called a "center". The Tv was missing some colors and the bath tub was slimey. But it was very cheap and right off the highway.

Enjoyed the additional options for breakfast (biscuts and gravy).

Reasonably priced, clean, and friendly. I'd stay here again without reservation. (Sorry for the pun).

Everything was really nice, and so was the price.

Was not my first choice, but fit the budget. I was releaved that the rooms were clean and the service was good. The breakfast menu needs a lil revamping.

[...] I would recommend the hotel. It's is nice for the price you pay and the staff are very friendly and helpful; even bringing me an network cable so I could access the internet.
