Recent guest reviews

For this location, the price for the room was unbelievable. Very clean!! Excellent service. This area is known for crime, drugs, and the like. But, maybe because the location is just across the highway from other - dismal and extremely scary hotels - what a difference. The location is perfect. I must say that I do not believe that this hotel will continue to offer the affordable prices for the rooms....quality service...extremely safe and clean rooms. Wow!

It was a pleasure. Staff was very kind and helpful. Rooms were very clean. Nice location and good breakfast and also free WiFi. Room keeping made a awesome job. We recommend this hotel and were very happy so for a few bucks more. So please spend a little more money because we had a bad time in a other cheaper motel and were so happy to find this hotel

This place is outdated. The furniture is old, along with the TV. The beds definitely are not comfortable., not to mention there were roaches crawling on one of the beds which I had to kill .. And it doesn't make sense to change rooms because there is a good possibility I will have the same problem.... If you see them in one room you'll probably see them in every room ....not to mention the rooms are at the point where they need a major overhaul, but they will not spend any money to fix the place up. The bathrooms are not in very good shape either. Also... If you enjoy dial-up Internet then you will love their Wi-Fi. Not recommended at all.

Bed bug, found alive and bagged it. Gave to manager. Had bites. Moved to another room. Microwave not clean. Asked 2 days straight still not cleaned, and missing coffee maker. Again asked but did not get one. Residents talking outside door till 3:00am. Had to ask them to move away from my door and barking dog very early in the morning. Rented 4 nights received 10% off bill, but should have gotten a free night, but it was not offered. I do not recommend this hotel. Just not good. Stayed there because of online marketing and reasonable price online. Bad choice.

I only stayed here for one night on the way someplace else. The room was clean but was very dated. The mattresses were old and the furniture had seen better days. I think the majority of the people staying here were weekly renters. The breakfast was comparable to other budget hotels (cereal, toaster waffles, bagels). The staff was very friendly and it was close to the interstate.

It's comfy and clean. Reasonably priced. Husband and I just wanted to get out for my birthday night. I'd stay again. Very central to plenty stores and fast food. No complaints this way, so if your looking for function and not trying to put a hurting on your wallet you can't go wrong here

Room was clean but cigarette ashes was found on the lamb near the bed.hotel is walking distance to Big Lots and at least 5 restaurants. Comfortable bed.TV is outdated but its still watchable.i enjoyed my stay here.I would stay here again.

Hotel room was fine. Clean and orderly. Just needed one night leaving out of Atlanta on way back to Tampa. Area hotel is in (Union City) on an upswing, closed mall but many new car dealerships. Nice all you can eat restaurant eye sight from lobby. Had a quite stay.

I needed a spot close to my house to stay for a night. Long story short, emergency situation at the house and we couldn't stay at our house for the night. It was a quick stay- check in late evening, and up and out by 6AM. I checked a couple of spots in the area, and none of them looked great. We were tired and wanted to relax, so we decided to go with the best of the 3 we looked at. The owner worked on the rate, and gave me a coupon rate because I requested a lower rate- which was nice. The lady at the front counter was very helpful in the evening and also very friendly. Regarding the rooms, they need updating. We stayed in a room with 2 double beds, and the beds were small... when I think double, I think 2 queens?? But maybe I am not correct in saying that. The bedding was very old and outdated- I am sure many behinds have been on and off the bedding. The comforter was scratchy and uncomfortable. The TV was very old and didn't have any connections for hooking up any game systems. The room itself was okay, but its not somewhere I would book for several nights coming from out of town. The "deluxe breakfast" was very much of nothing- cereal, pastries, and coffee/juice. The lady who checked us out in the morning seemed half asleep and wasn't friendly at all.

Found hair around the toilet. Room a/c wasn't working. Asked for king... Got twin beds. Not even sure how this is still open. Pool was covered with tarp. Trash on the tarp. I need to type more about how horrible this place is to make the review limit. We changed places upon entering the room. That's how bad it is.
