I was trying to get a place that was relatively cheap because other places were renting rooms for too high of a price. The place was cheaper than others, and what I liked about my room was that it had a nice view of the back lot and it had a smaller room inside the room so i could get...

Don't quite know how to evaluate this. Check-in was polite but confusing. Finally decided I'd just take whatever she gave me--I was tired. The room had fridge, microwave and a big chair, but all were pretty worn. It wasn't noticeably dirty or stained, but it didn't feel clean either. Were In to travel this route again, I would check out...

My stay was very pleasant here. The room was comfy and nice, and cheap against the amenities provided.The motel itself is located near many eateries and shopping centers, and is at a walking distance from most. The parking is very spacious. I would definitely recommend this place.

I truly enjoyed my stay here. My 2 children and I stayed here for 2 days and were incredibly comfortable in our room. The owners were very kind to us and the housekeeping was efficient. There was a TV for my kids and a microwave and fridge for our leftovers (very much appreciated). It was a great experience. I completely...

This room was very rundown and after seeing it I demanded a refund. They refused and charged me $70 anyway. Looks like they haven't invested a penny in the last decade! Stained chair, cigarette burns in the comforter, stinky towels, the list goes on!

Let me start by saying just how overpriced lodging in this area seems to be. I paid over $70 for this room! Anywhere else, this would be a $30 to $40 room tops, in my opinion. But I'll start with the good. I rarely book on Expedia, and when I do, I almost always get some kind of grumbling from...

Room was clean......that's the positive. Tiny rooms, rock hard beds, dingy and dark. I had asked for two beds. Opened the door to find one. Who could imagine? There was a second room off the first one. Very strange...... Furniture was very worn. Just kind of depressing.

My stay at the Itascan Motel was comfortable. The people were nice and the rooms were clean and tidy. WE went fishing and so I had to bring my boat. The parking was accomodated and the stay was pleasant. Also received some discount at some food places. Would stay there again.
