Recent guest reviews

I booked our room last year and got a great rate of $62 a night Friday and Saturday. I requested ground floor however when checking in I was told there where no more ground floor rooms so we took what we got and off to our room in the 2nd floor. When we got to our room it looked old and dated the TV stand/dresser was missing several draws. The bed was very squeaky all night every time someone rolled over you heard squeak, squeak. The next morning we went for breakfast it was terrible!! Very hard and cold biscuits even the bread was hard. I tried heating it up in the microwave but it was so dry I just threw it all away. The next morning we went to Denny's. A friend of ours stayed on the 3rd floor and said their room was just redone so if your staying sometime soon ask for a updated room. Over all great price for the location.

First time staying at this hotel and will definitely return. Price was excellent and the location to The Island was awesome! Hotel staff very friendly and nice. Rooms clean and beds very comfortable. Nice outdoor pool. Very pleased with our visit

It was great it needs a big place to eat the pool was nice I had a great time it was in a great location and the people were very friendly

Check in and out is fast, front desk personnel is nice. Breakfast not much choice but clean. Room ok not too clean, beds make noise when turn, not too comfortable. Good location.

Nice comfortable beds big room bathroom could be bigger

The hotel is nice, we stay each year. Room was nice, bed was harder than other rooms we have stayed in but we love the location staff and overall accommodations. Its one of the nicest places to stay, its quiet and safe.

Great hotel for the price! Awesome location! I would definitely stay here again!

Was worried after reading some reviews but what a pleasant surprise! Very nice staff, large clean room, great WiFi, extra towels and many pillows! Awesome location across the street from the Island and next door to a Friday's. A nice central location! We had a great four night stay and would recommend to everyone!

Staff was very friendly at check in. Clean bed, hot shower, great price. I'm happy!

Hotel is old.. needs updates. Our room was clean but the beds were so uncomfortable. You get what you pay for.

Clean, quiet & convenient location. However, the bathrooms are a bit small.

Very old but very clean. Good value and location. Directly across the street from the Island.

This hotel was worth the money as far as how cheap it was for a two night stay. I think they could update some of there rooms and clean a little better. Room had odor and first room the air did not get cold and shower filled up with bath water before shower even ended. We had to change rooms the next morning bur was a double instead of a king. The odor was terrible and the shape of the room was very bad. The front lobby was very nice and employees very friendly.

Great location, quiet for location. Room needs some TLC. Carpet fibers coming up, shower looked dirty. Ceiling looked moldy

Quiet hotel, very friendly staff, very clean rooms.

Dirty sheets on bed. Everything old. Too small area for breakfast. Nothing good to eat. No one keeping breakfast area clean

Staff was great! Everyone was very friendly and nice to talk to. They found out we were celebrating a birthday and gave us a complimentary appetizer for one of the restaurants there. Room was nice. Maybe a little outdated in style but I was there to have somewhere to sleep not to have something to look at. (; I would definitely recommend! Great price and great location!

it was a nice hotel just needs better beds they was very hard and the toilet kept running

The positives...it was close to Flap Jack's Restaurant for breakfast and across from The Island. The negatives.....non-smoking room had been smoked in. The front desk's answer to the heavy smoke smell was to hand me a bottle of air freshener. Furniture is way outdated and fabric is torn. Cigarette burn holes in one of the comforters. The floor was filthy. Dust in the corners of the room. Carpet was torn. Cigarette burn marks all over toilet and tub. The room was really disgusting but it was Thanksgiving weekend and nothing else was available so we chose to suck it up instead of driving 6 hours back home. I've stayed in older motels that were maintained and clean with zero complaints but this place was awful.

Great customer service, room clean. Bed a little hard.
