We spent an evening here and were quite pleased at the clean modern room and comfortable bed. Our room was bit small with 1 king size bed, but it was plenty big enough for the two of us. It had some nice touches like outlets on the desk lamp base and outlets on one of the night stands. Other rooms...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! Even though it is a simple gesture I can assure you it's a much appreciated one! We as well are happy that you would definitely stay with us again! For the size of the room, we do have a Superior King which I believe you would find even more comfortable!...

I rate this a 5 because we were so surprised at how nice it was. These lower price chains have a wide range of quality and cleanliness across their various properties. We were simply price shopping for a place to lie for the night and this was the least expensive place with good ratings. It surpassed, by a mile, our...

We checked in late at night and Joyce was just lovely. They had the room so we were lucky to receive an upgrade to a king bed which turned out to be one of the cleanest rooms we've ever stayed in. We were given vouchers for breakfast, which was just the McDonalds next door, but it was a nice little...

Thank you so much for your lovely comments about our night auditor Joyce! She is just an amazing worker and we are very fortunate to have her! We always strive to make our guests happy, whether that be the occasional free upgrade, or bringing extra towels down to a room for the kids' baths. No matter what, we will do...

Basic, older hotel, with smaller rooms. Nicely decorated. Clean. Indoor and outdoor corridors. Pet friendly with a nice outside area for them to do their business. Our main problems with this hotel was the noise from I-90 (very loud), and the size of the room. Neither of which can be fixed. The cheap price drove our decision to stay, but...

Very pleased with this Hotel. We asked for a room on the back side as it is just off the I-90. It was quiet. Beds where very comfortable. Great shower. Friendly staff. Breakfast is a coupon for a egg mcmuffin and drink. Not much, but can't expect to much for a $55 a night room. Would definitely stay here again....

Thank you so much for choosing us as your place to stop for a break on your long trip from Florida. I am glad to hear that your stay with us was so quiet! Guests often love having our back side rooms as they have a much greater protection from the highway noise. We are also lucky to have to...

We stayed there one night & got a great price. Front desk check in went smooth & they were very helpful & pleasant. The Mc Donald's breakfast voucher is a wonderful idea! The only downfall was the noise from the highway, the heater, & the bathroom fan. Book a room in back of Inn. Great location too.

No frills but good clean rooms, comfortable beds, and friendly hospitality. The bonus is the morning with MacDonalds breakfast for you included. If you are there, try getting the rooms on the other side of the motel from the Interstate, nice and quiet.
