Pro: The location of it was nice with it being right off the interstate. The pillows were very soft. Cons: The outside of the hotel looks old. It really needs updated with the newer hotels going up around it. After walking in, the lobby smelt old and musty. It was very humid in the whole hotel. The employee working was...

Decent room, minor cosmetic issues. Nice beds several pillows & comfy. Double windows on highway side make it quiet. HVAC filter 1/2 clogged. Usual slow tub drain. Hot tub is paved over for fitness equip. Pool ok if you dont mind cold, 70 or so. Better than the Sup*r 8 around the corner.

I guess the price on Priceline was ok but I won't be staying here again. Small room. Not even enough lights to see my stuff. Hideous indoor pool. Ok for one night but we are here for 4 nights....breakfast was ok. We reserved a king but got 2 queen beds. She said they were overbooked.

The motel was clean and quiet. I wish there were more and better options for breakfast.The room was large and the furniture was in good shape, which isn't always the case in motels of this kind.

3 sets of families stayed at this hotel while we were here to bury our grandfather's ashes. The night receptionist was very rude when one family requested a room change due to a big smoke smell and they had allergies. Then when the children went to request to break some cash to get smaller bills for the vending machine, she...

Motel is located centrally among many other chain type of motels. Appears to be one of the older and smaller ones, however great value compared to the rest. Bathrooms are rather small and it appears our room once had a refrigerator but was now gone. Includes microwave and coffee pot.
