Older motel style, yet very nicely updated!!! We arrived June 26, 2016, checked out on the 28'th. Older motel style, but it had been very nicely updated. Quiet, clean. For senior citizens, this is a great place to enjoy a quick vacation. They also have a swimming pool. Refreshing. Air condition, wide screen T.V. Ironing board/iron, telephone, refridg., microwave.

Book room online. No sign out by the street. Pulled into the parking lot, looked like it had been closed down. Had broken screen doors, garbage piled up outside. Didn't even get out of car to check-in, Called my credit card and booking agency to cancel the reservation.

My son forgot his cell phone in our room after we checked out. When I called about leaving it there, they first tried to say it wasn't there but then did admit they found it and said they would send it to me via Priority Mail. I called again after another week went by and they said they were "too... More

I booked this room through Hotwire. I have usually had good results with Hotwire. The rooms window had broken glass. The door had a visible gap and had nail sticking out into the inside of the room. There was a weird speaker in the ceiling. The television had static on every channel and randomly shut off every few hours. I... More

The room rate was pretty cheap, that is your first clue. Upon opening the room a smell that seems like it is chemical in nature in an attempt to cover something else up. Towels smelled clean but upon further inspection were stained with God knows what. Looked inside the coffee pot to find some coffee still inside it and a... More

The room was so smelly. The sheets and towels were dirty. I had my do not disturb sign out on door and the housekeeper still came into our room. I will never stay at this motel again. The worst one I have ever seen.

This was the absolute worst experience. Better business bureau and health department should shut this place down. Service was horrible. The manager understood NOTHING we were saying but had plenty to say. Apparently large maintenance ladders are safe to have in the pool area as well as the pool vacuum in the pool while patrons are swimming. We were told... More

I chose this hotel because every other decent hotel in town was booked for the dates we needed. I found their website and it looked like an acceptable hotel with all the conveniences you'd expect from a good hotel. However, I found that online hotel shopping, much like online dating, can result in real world disappointments. We walked into our... More

We were traveling with a group and had planned our trip well in advance (5 months). When we arrived at the motel I was told that my reservation had been cancelled. I said I did not cancel the room and was told that the computer does not lie, people do. So much for customer service. The only rooms available were... More
