We spent one night at the Central Motel & found it to be conveniently located, nice accommodations. The office people at check-in and check-out were pleasant. The pool area had recently been renovated. There is a great restaurant (Cinnamon Sticks) on site for breakfast and lunch. For dinner there were several choices close by. We went to Cedar River Seafood... More

In town for a funeral and found this place on line. Great rate so gave it a try. Not fancy but clean and comfortable and close to the main part of town. The nearby restaurant Cinnamon Stix is a winner too!

Modern rooms, cute folded towels, shampoo/soap dispensers in the shower. Comfy beds, refrigerator, and fantastic air conditioning. Staff was very friendly and loved to chat with customers. It felt good to have a bit of a rag hew after driving 17.5 hours across the country. My only complaint was that their wifi didn't work at all. It would fail to... More

We stay here every time we are visiting family. Very clean. Staff is very friendly and responsive. 10% off meal at restaurant next door. Normal noise level at the pool but very quiet at night. Townhouses are also for rent. Never stayed in one but they look very nice.

Had a very nice room with very comfortable beds. The restaurant on the property had a very good breakfast. The trail behind the motel was nice for taking a walk. Our room had a balcony with a nice view. We enjoyed our stay.
