Stay was pleasant as always.

40 Winks is a fine example of why I like to support local, family owned businesses. Helpful, friendly, courteous, flexible people who are easy to deal with. I call a local phone and talk to the people who make friendly decisions in a clean, affordable, safe, friendly place.

Very nice property in safe area with nice close by restaurants. As well, airport only 20 - 30 minutes away.

Clean/quiet/comfortable rooms. Friendly/helpful staff. Excellent stay for our Irishfest visit! Would stay here again!

Hotel description on Orbitz said breakfast available. They had a pot of coffee in an old musty dining area with some prewrapped nut bread. Nothing else. To use the shower you had to get shampoo and conditioner from the front desk. The soap in the bathroom was postage stamp size and dried out so that it fell apart. How did this facility get a 4+ rating on Orbitz??? I would give it a 1.5

Nice size room, quiet location. Very comfortable bed. Well lighted parking area.

Having to check in by 11 and the front desk staff not so friendly? Otherwise, nice room and place!

Clean, Affordable, no-frills hotel. I get the sense this is a local, family institution. Pretty retro in feel.

No hair dryer other than that everything was fine, comfy bed too!

This is the second time in less than 6 months that we have stayed here. No frills but a great location, wonderful staff and would highly recommend it. You need to ask for extras like a hair dryer or ironing board, but they are given out willingly. Right next to the zoo. Handy to great restaurants and shopping.

Older motel, but roomy, clean, comfortable and reasonable.

Very friendly and welcoming desk staff. Room was very clean and modern spacious. The cleaning staff very courteous, each day the room was as if first checking in. Very quiet no street noise.

I only stayed one night here but this is an adorable hotel. There are homey touches everywhere including the lovely wreaths in the hallway. The decor is dated and simple, but very clean and comfortable. I would stay here again certainly.

Close to events, no-frills, unique hotel, conveniently located to our destination. Coffee and coffee cake complimentary in the morning. There was Easy parking, free wifi. Clean and comfortable bed. For a less expensive stay, think about 40 Winks Inn

Was able to check in early and the staff was very pleasant and helpful.
