This property is has seen a better day. It is beyond renovating. The interior smells of smoke and has been in need of some TLC for a long time. Obviously it isn't going to get it. The manager/owner is only taking the money out and putting nothing back into the place. Stained towels, holes in blankets, woodwork & carpeting shot....

The room was adequate with two queen sized beds, but the bathroom left much to be desired. The sink had no plug and the tub had horrible green stains from the faucets to the drain. The drain was rusted and the tiles in the ceiling were water stained from the room above. The continental breakfast was good with avariety of...

I walked into my room and immediately decide I would not stay there. Why? The giant stain on the couch was one reason. Room smelled really musty. I went to turn on the AC and there was a sign that said not to put in on high or it would quit working. Went to look out the window and could...

We enjoyed our 3 days stay here. This older motel has been renovated and is quite comfortable. Parking is right outside your door, and the motel was very quiet. Breakfast has some hot items and was good. The motel is a little west of downtown so you may need to drive into town to eat, but its not too far.

There was no phone there. I never did figure out the complicated remote control for the TV. But I the price was decent and...

This is a real time report: foul, filthy, hideous. Even the shower head is filthy. Dirt on the walls, dirt on the blanket, disgusting bathtub, ratty hallways, carpets that haven't been cleaned in heaven only knows how long. The door of the in-room fridge is totally begrimed. As I write this, my husband just pointed out the huge hole in...

Only stay here if you are desperate. I've never stayed at a hotel where the bed shook when people walked in the hallway outside. Breakfast was almost inedible. There is a train that comes around every couple of hours and wakes you up with a horn. Inside and out it could have used a good clean and a coat of...

We were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel! Check in was a pleasure, thanks to the desk clerk, Justin. He was polite, very friendly, and extremely helpful! Our room was clean and comfortable, and the hotel was within easy walking distance of several restaurants. Breakfast was pleasant and had many choices. We greatly enjoyed our stay!
