This place is clean and the staff are friendly. The beds are comfortable. There are laundry facilities. The towels are surprisingly fluffy, not at all like the usual motel linen. Wifi is available and speedy. Breakfast is cereal, milk, orange juice, yogurt, coffee, and a couple of pieces of fruit. Comparable to a Motel 6, almost as nice as a... More

I pulled in around 4:45 am and although I couldn't go inside, the young lady (Chelsea) at the window as all smiles and got me set up in a room very quickly. The room was cool, clean , and quiet. The bed was firm and I slept well. This is not a fancy place, but a clean and economical one.... More

We stayed here in july of 2015. The room was very clean, and i never heard other cars come in that night. The staff was very nice and friendly. I would stay again without hesitation. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed here for almost 2 weeks at $52/night. You would think a trash heap like this would appreciate the business. I paint as a way to relax and being that I'm here for the military it gets stressful being away from family. I happened to check out and leave some of canvas, paint, brushes. I received a call that... More

Traveling with a big trailer we stay at a lot of "truck stop" hotels. This has to be the best so far. Even had a microwave and refrigerator in our clean room. And they were very friendly. The manager even dug through all the cereal they had to find Apple Jacks for our grandson.

It should have been a clue when we saw it next to a truck stop and even a bigger clue when we had to stand outside bullet proof glass to reserve the room but we thought the price was right. We learned you get what you pay for. The first room was filthy with cigarette burns in the comforter and... More

Enjoyed my stay here. I found the front desk staff to be extremely friendly, and helpful. The rooms seemed to be recently renovated, and even smelled nice for a smoking room that I was in.

“I usually ask them not to put me right next to an occupied room... if an open room is available. Makes my room quieter and I don't bother anyone else watching TV . .. as I usually come off the highway late at night and like to watch a bit of TV before sleeping.”
