The motel is decent enough. I didn't take advantage of any of the services other than morning coffee. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the stay. We just laughed at how the hallways smell like pot pretty often throughout the night lol

The room itself was ok, I guess. It had a bed and I needed one in that area. Woke up covered in bites, swollen and itchy, and it took for days for it to finally subsided. I'd sleep in my pickup before staying there again.

The lobby is right out of '89 and should be the set for a tv series or a the location of an Alec Soth photograph. Aside from this, the rooms are sub par, super uncomfortable bed, did not dare sleep in the sheets. If all you need is a few hours of sleep, then go for it but keep expectations... More

We were having trouble with our trailer so we decided to stay here for the night. The two ladies at the desk when we checked in were professional (if not friendly) and it was okay. The TV picture was fuzzy, but watchable, and the room was reasonably clean. A note in the room and lobby offer a late checkout of... More

The place is gross, the registration people are slow, the manager doesn't care, the hallways smell like pot and you can't even get the internet in the rooms like advertised. Do Not book this hotel. It's a JOKE!

The $32.99 on the sign is a scam, i paid $62 for my room & it was not worth it! The lobby smells like cigarettes, there are scetches looking people hanging around and my little boy found a Crack pipe out in the grass!!! Do yourself a favor and avoid this place it's not safe for kids!
