The fridg and cou ter serfaces were dirty. I had to rinse out the tub before we could shower. I understand no self service due to Covid. No ice or coffe was available at all. They advertise breakfast is included. The desk clerk could have at least offer to pour a cup of coffee and hand it to guests.

Location, price, Outdated , needs many repairs and new flooring and paint and sidewalk was very dangerous,

Better than expected. Enough said.. I'm under no obligation to write advertising material for the motel. If this doesn't satisfy you, then I shall be tempted to downgrade my rating because this survey is the most distasteful aspect of my experience with the facility. Take it or leave it. Furthermore recent guest sayeth naught.

Maybe not a 5 star resort; but met our needs very nicely for one night. We'll be staying there again.

It was terrible the bathroom wouldn't clean it stunk have two facilities on site wasn't in operation it was just a terrible place to stay

The hotel is definitely dated but the room was clean and comfortable and didn't really feel like a hotel to me. Which is a good thing. The only thing I wish was better was the outdated TV that was in my room. The picture was fuzzy and the remote was half dead

Hotel met my expectation and was a pleasant quiet stay. Located in a good location easy to access to main highways

Good stay for a great value. Right by msny food places and right off the highway.

For a hotel at the last minute it would suite you just fine. However it needs updated and better repairs that should be done correctly.

The staff was very friendly, although the rooms should be updated, it worked for what we needed.

When I pulled up I knew it was a mistake but I had paid in advance so I was stuck. I will say this is the first bad booking I have had with this service and it's not their fault. Hopefully they will drop this group. The carpet was severely stained as was the worn out sofa. The curtain wouldn't cover the whole window and the bedspread was dingy and worn out. The TV cabinet rattled when you walked across the floor and the TV was an old tube style and the cable or whatever was terrible. About five watchable channels. Room service didn't clean the coffee pot nor leave new cups, or water cups, nor new coffee pkgs. Also the ice machine was up by the office, a pretty good walk in the cold. They also had a bar that was especially loud on Friday night and could be heard easily in the room. There were three cats hanging out outside belonging to someone living there I guess. I forgot they didn't leave extra toilet paper and we ran out and had to use what was left in the tissue box. Also the towels were worn out and smelled as if they were washed with lye soap. Other than that I guess it was convenient to our touring of Amish country. I can assure you I will never stay in this chain again. The night clerk was nice and apologetic but couldn't do anything. Stay away from this chain and this particular motel. Sometimes saving money isn't worth it.

We were not given a deluxe Queen as we ordered, said they don't have that type of room. Bath tub was so dirty that I wouldn't even shower. Towels were thin and dirty looking. No coffee pot in the room, but after all my complaints, they brought me one. This was not a good experience!!

It was a trucker Motel 6 place with a bathroom door that was wraped and would not close so you could have privacy. No continental breakfast was offered and I don't know where the ice machine was if I needed it.

We arrived at 10:00pm and the night clerk went out of his way to make are stay was very comfortable we needed more towels and he got them, we needed a special chair for my mother-in-law for her and he made sure we had one for her, we will surely stay aging here because of what they did for us.

Easy access to the Interstate (I-77) , Close to quite a few of the small towns and places we wanted to visit. For the price of the room this hotel was clean and quite comfortable with restaurants well within walking distance. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Also it is pet friendly. We would go back!

I became sick there, so it wasnt a good stay, and it was very noisy there couldnt sleep

Under new ownership, nice new carpet and flooring, very clean. Pool was warm and nice. Had a good time talking with other guest in the pool. Very friedly staff.

Beds very uncomfortable, dirty towels left from previous visitor, had a very closed up smell, door had been kicked in and not replaced - just patched up! No table, needed updated badly!
