Tv mounted too high on wall, can’t turn. Bed was comfortable

There was a smell in both the rooms I tried. I complained to no avail, and was denied a refund because I couldn’t stay in the rooms.

Liked that I was assigned the same room in March that I had been in January, namely an end room on the first floor.

No heat in rooms , cheap place. Go in sleep get out.

It was clean, but very spartan. Don’t expect much, but at the price it would stay again. Good place to stop on a long road trip.

Just a basic motel good value easy to find off of interstate

Convenient location for our needs. A pretty Good value.

Was fine. A bit dirty. There was a spider hanging from shower and the floor was very dirty. TV was not very great. Only about half the channels worked. Lights flickered often.

Property secluded made it hard to find at night , would of liked information regarding local attractions and things to do ,

If you are sensitive to perfumes, scented laundry supplies.....I wouldn't recommend staying here. It was convenient to the Casino.

The operator of this property is horrible. I reserved my room about 4 months before my trip, and called THE DAY OF MY ARRIVAL to indicate that I would be arriving late, around 11 or 12 pm. The person I spoke with indicated that they had marked my account for very late arrival. After driving 2.5 hours and arriving just before midnight, I was told that my room had been cancelled and re-sold and that they had ZERO availability. They gave some BS reason about my credit card being declined - definitely FALSE (I checked the card). After arguing with the desk person and the property manager by phone I was told that they could get me ONE night in an accessible room, and that MAYBE I'd be able to get another room there for the next three nights. Unbelievable. But what was happening was clear... There was a large music festival nearby and room demand was high, so they knew they could come up with some excuse to cancel my room and re-sell it for a higher price to someone else, knowing full well that Orbitz would have to then relocate us. That is an incredibly unethical business practice, and left me scrambling at 1am for 45 minutes with Orbitz a relocation specialist to find another place to stay. Not to mention that this property seems to have gone downhill since I last stayed there 3-4 years ago. Even in the "Superior" room we were given for the one night we ended up there, there were stains on the bed, water damage to the flooring, etc. Give another hotel your business.

Comfortably allowed a late check in after 1am without any hesitation

Close to the highway, easy on/off. Excellent value for the price. Looking for safe, clean sleeping for the night while traveling cross country. Have stayed here in the past. Highly recommended for the price.

All rooms have a thermostat against the wall by the bathroom that is used to operate the heat in the room and a air conditioner unit used strictly to cool the room. Thank you for staying with us.
