Excellent stop for the weary traveler. Very affordable. If you need to get some shut eye, and grab some breakfast before you go, stop here! 24 hr convenience store/ gas and a Cracker Barrel are just yards away. Rooms are dated but who cares...when your sleeping?

Rooms need basic remodeling, but everything was clean and the service was great both times I stayed there. Really enjoyed checking in and getting lots of local info from Sherry at the desk! Overall, a really great stay for the price.
