Clearly, new owners are trying to pull this hotel's coals out of the fire and doing a good job of it. Room was good, inside and outside access. Beds okay, nice down comforters. Very nice breakfast, day one, ¼ inch thick hot pressed ham slices, roast potatoes. Day two, hot two egg omelets, tatter tots. Fruit yogurts, waffles, juice. Well... More

Stayed overnight. Decent enough place. Clean. A little outdated, but as long as a place is clean,I'm not that particular. Just need a clean place to sleep. For the price,it was great. I was surprised there was a hot breakfast considering the price. Not big choices, but good. Would stay there again.

Motel in the process of updating. Owners were very accommodating. Rooms large. Inexpensive and quiet. As he motel is built into a hill. We were able to drive to the outside door of our second level room, a great convenience. Breakfast was good. Coffee was especially good. An outside seating area would be great. Close to town.

Under new management, an Asian couple, as of 6/4/16....give them some time, because the place is a pit. Filthy, stained carpets, ancient fixtures, heavily pitted parking lot. Breakfast is definitely "missable." Don't bother. Tub backed up and floor was slippery with soap scum; treated to a black hair on the side of the tub and manager admitted the housekeeper, a... More

A previous reviewer mentioned the outside not being to fantastic and I have to agree, but don't let that steer you away. The lobby was inviting and modern. The room was clean with some dated elements but overall very nice. We stayed in the room with a pack n play, a twin air mattress, and the king size bed. It... More

Ok, when we pulled up, we were like...ummmmmmm...nothing overtly bad, but not great either. We changed our tune as soon as we went in and were greeted by Michelle. We felt truly welcome. We went to the room and it was CLEAN. No musty odors, anything. The bathroom was nice....very hot water, and better water pressure than one normally finds... More

We've stayed at this Settle Inn several times. It is very clean and the people working there have the charm and warmth of small town America. Nice breakfast in the morning to get you on the road and on your way. We have family reunions in the neighboring town which makes it a very convenient place to stay. They have... More

After being a traveling salesman for 25 years this motel ranks among the worst. The man who checked me in was surly and un-communicative. I should have known when I opened the door what I would find. Dirty room with mold growing on the walls of the bathroom. While I was sleeping nature came to visit in the form of... More

My room is always clean and the water is hot. The heating and cooling system works great. For me, it is a great value for the money. The Inn and Suites is only a mile from town and just a short distance from the interstate.
