The room was very nice and clean. The pool was closed for the season. The non-smoking room was great. Friendly staff.

this is a nice hotel close to restaurant and shopping mall, very convienence

Overall, we had an excellent experience. We felt that we had a clean, comfortable room in a great location with an excellent continental breakfast for a great price.

Great place to stay. Room was completely updated. Room was very clean.

This is about the 6th time I stayed here, for the money it is a good deal. This room happened to need some work, the room had a musty odor and also the climate control didn't work well, I am easily pleased, the bedwas comfortable, the shower was hot and the linens clean. The staff has always been accomodating, no complaints there. I will be back.

You get a lot for the money, rooms need updating, but for what they charge you get a lot. Rooms are clean, towels always new and fresh, comfortable beds, refrigerator and microwave.

Staff were very helpful and professional. Room was adequate though could have been a little cleaner on the floor but it was clean where it counted, beds and bathroom. It was quiet and the room easy to get to.

This is my 6th time staying here and I have to say for the money it is a nice place, room is clean, towels new and fluffy, bed is comfy and A/C is cold. Plenty of restaurants in the area, a lot of shopping, very pleased.

This is my second stay here, and for the money it is a great deal, it is not a palace, it is a low priced, clean, hot shower, clean linens and comfy bed motel. Yes, the air conditioner made a lot of noise, the back parking lot was scary dark at night and the refrigerator that did not work on my previous stay was taken out of the room and not replaced. The wall paper is covering up some bumpy walls underneath, the paint is cracking. As, I said, it is a great value and none of the faults bothered me, my stay was very pleasant.

First, I would like to say that it was confusing to find the lobby from the front of the hotel. There is a restaurant in the front of the building with NO clear sign that stated the hotel portion from the restaurant. Our room was on the 2nd floor so we had to go up the stairs on the outside of the building (I didn’t see any elevators available) so it was kind of strange that there was no access from inside the building to the upstairs. The building was noticeably old, but well kept. The room was an average room, nothing fancy but practical.

We used this room to work with our daughter on some college work for a day. The included wireless was fast and the room was perfectly nice. We stayed in a room with a king bed and a desk. The TV was fine but older.

Staff was friendly. Room was simple but clean. Bob Evans restaurant next door was a plus. Continental breakfast was sparse. Cold cereal, toast, bagels, danish, juice and coffee. No yogurt or fresh fruit.

If you like the 1960's...or can't afford a better place, then this motel is for you. They do include a "free" continental breakfast (which I passed on) and the staff was friendly...but that's it. I upgraded to a King, but the room had dated carpet, dated bathroom, dated TV and the worst was, the climate control was the 1960's "air blasted"...your choice was On or Off...without the "air blaster", it was stale and stuffy, with it on, it was Siberia. The fan blew right onto the bed ( no direction control)..and no controlled thermostat...like I said "On or Off" . Next time I'll spend $50 more for the 21st Century edition hotel.

The lobby has a weird side entrance. i drove right by the hotel and into the neighboring restaurant. if it weren't for a friend , i wouldnt have found it on my own. the lobby smelt weird, im guessing the smells from the mexican restaurant were seeping through the open door. the man at the desk, didn't greet me or speak to me other than "Here is a map , you are here. " and walked to the back. it took us awhile to find our room since it was in a neighboring building. our room was okay. the paint was peeling, the shower had something stuck in the drain. the heater never got hot even though we had it maxed. the sheets were rough and scratchy. the location was the only good thing about the hotel. for $40, we stayed at the red roof in danville and got a more comfortable, clean room, and much friendly staff, than the $80 i spent on this hotel. i would probably never stay here again.

Everyone was friendly. Complementary breakfast very basic. Went next door to eat. Would stay again if in area. Televisions could be updated.

Well when I arrived at 9:00pm I went to the front of the building when was very dimly lit. I couldnt find the front office. I asked someone and they said it was on the left side of the building.So I went around and checked in. No problem. I got my card key and tried to enter the room.My card key did not work and couldnt open the door so I used my roommates key and that one opened up. As soon as i opened the door, a horrible moldy, musty smell was in the room. I put the A/C on full blast.My room was a NON SMOKING ROOM too. I settled in and there was flys in the room which was very annoying. I swatted them and killed them. Bathroom was very small, Thats it. Not a good experience and I'm not too picky as I dont spend much time in the room.

Good location and one of the cheaper hotels in the Dam area. Continental breakfast didn't impress me. Some type of bug in my bed next morning but I pointed this out to front desk when I checked out and they apologized and said they would correct. Overall, for the price, not a bad deal for staying one night.

Fair to OK experience

We stayed here only one night. I wanted something fairly close to Knoebels park. The rooms were clean and the outside was lanscaped very nice with the people sorta hidden from the guest rooms.

Staff was very accomadating. Kept pool open later if we kept the noise down as not to desterb others.
