My friend and I needed a get away weekend and had very little money to go with. So we looked for something cheap. We found it! We were able to switch from a smoking room with one bed to non smoking with two. We went into our first room. Her little ones were with her, so immediately we discovered the... More

First room smelled strongly of smoke. Second room smelled lightly of smoke. Awoke at 1:30 am to new arrivals trying to enter our room with newly programmed key cards. The deadbolt kept them out. Office called 15 minutes later to ask who we were. I can overlook the backed up sink, the stained comforter, holey blankets, malfunctioning shower handle resulting... More

Driving cross country and needing an easy, inexpensive place to crash close to the highway, this place worked. I didn't expect much, so it was fine. Clean, comfortable without being posh, felt safe, and breakfast included. The staff I encountered was friendly and helpful.

Was there on a weekend... Hard to sleep while a couple was having sex and singing all night it was moving my bed! Also u will feel everyone walking within this wood structure! So make sure to get a upper level room to avoid people walking over your head!
