Me and my gf stayed here for one night. The staff were really friendly and the room was clean and spacious. The room was one of the cheaper that we found, but it is great value for the price. We would recomend it to other travelers.

Friendly front staff, clean and spacious room and very affordable. I certainly don't agree with earlier review about every room has bed bugs. Maybe one did one time but ours DID NOT. It was a wonderful room in all ways and as for morning breakfast, no complaints - strong coffee keeps me happy and the cinnamon rolls were fine. A...

Small rooms. moldy showers. outdated bedding. TV cables everywhere. Showers don't drain nor do the sinks. Worst of all out of all the small stuff is every room has bed bugs and they are clearly visible

This room was available last minute at around 8PM. There was hardly a room left in town, and I thought the room would be terrible since it was one of the only ones I could get! But, the bed was comfortable, the doors and windows locked LOL, they forgot to leave towels..... but I had my own. I'd say, it...

We have stayed in ALL types of places when we travel but this is even worse than a Motel 6. The room is cramped and smells. The bottom sheet on the bed is so small it barely covers the mattress and bunches up under you while you attempt to sleep and a horrible mattress. Everything is old and worn out....

This is a very nice motel for the price. It was very clean and very quiet. We was there on a week day so that helped. The staff was very nice and help us with the Wifi. I would stay there again as we did not have on problem.

In the sub-$75 price range, this place is quite pleasant. If you're looking for an elegant, romantic hideaway, look elsewhere. The location is great - about 2 blocks from the main restaurant area downtown, and plenty of parking space. My room was clean & spacious enough, and the managers were pleasant and helpful. Wi-Fi and TV worked fine, but the...

I'm not sure when the other reviews were written, but my wife and I did not encounter any of the problems listed by (Carter T, Pero705 & Roadtripfail). Yes the rooms a some what tired. But when I called the manager offered me the best deal in town, $59. For that you get micro-wave, fridge, FT/TV, clean linen and towels....

I really hate to give anything less that three stars but this place actually is less than desirable. First off, the place is just run down. There are so many places that this motel needs repairs I wouldn't even be able to cover them all. The rooms are in dire need of attention. Old carpets, old beds, old tile and...
