We were welcomed with a very nice greeting by manager Jeff, he explained all the amenities they offered, although we knew what to expect from the online information but appreciated him taking the time to inform us again. We found our room, yes a bit dated...but super clean and in good condition. The price was amazing for what we expected...

Very nice accomodations. The staff was helpful and very positive. My room was spacious, very clean and very quiet. I appreciate the amenities offered, including laundry and breakfasts. Very nice place to stay and very affordable. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Price was WAY to much. Told 2 beds nice room. 1 bed old nasty room. Bed had big sag in it. Air stoped working. Fridge was SO loud. Carpet was nasty. I can go on. Last room in town area. Over $200.00 for that. Breakfast was cereal or sausage pancake on a stick. Sent company a letter with NO REPLY!!

I stayed here 1 night while moving my daughter back home for the summer. Room was nothing fancy but it was clean and neat. Only negative was that it faced the street and was a bit noisy. Easy to get to off I-80 and was not too long of a drive to campus.

The manager is not professional, he was SO rude they basically told us we were liars on how we made the reservation in the first place. And they said they didn't honor the government rate, the person who took our reservation said that they did honor it and the reservation is already in the system. He cancelled our reservation in...

After reading several negative reviews of this hotel, I was totally surprised to find it clean, friendly, quiet and accommodating to all my needs. I needed several special request because of the type of stay and all were exceeded. There is a Perkins Restaurant within 1/4 mile that offers 10% off your bill if you're are staying in a hotel....

Old and kind of dirty. Windows don't block any noise, might as well have been a screen. Breakfast, if you want to call it that, was very disappointing. If you just want a place to sleep it will do.

Very disappointed. Made the reservation after calling property direct. In spite of all the assurances of how good it was, the actual property is unbelievably bad. After a full day of driving we did a late checkin with a friendly clerk. Unfortunately, it went downhill from there. The room is dated with decor that is unintentionally "retro". The TV was...

The hotel was overbooked. The site continued to send them reservations. In order to keep our reservation, they had to place us in a room with known issues. Ultimately the room had a few more issues that what were previously known. The legs on the chair were not secured. The coax cable to the tv was disconnected and not terminated....
