OK so it may not be the cheapest place to stay but after trying the lower end all I can say is that if you can afford that little bit extra and move up from America's Best Value or a Super 8 you will not regret it . I stayed there twice in two different rooms for about 3 days... More

This hotel offers everything you need: nice, clean accommodations, wifi, free parking, & free breakfast. The staff are helpful & knowledgeable. The location -- on a very busy intersection -- makes it convenient to head in any direction. The only thing they could improve is the width of the parking lot which is tight when the hotel is busy, as... More

We stayed over 4th of July weekend. I was a little bit concerned reading some of the other comments as I can be picky with the cleanliness of the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised. Everything was clean. It is an older hotel, but everything was totally up to date and clean! We did not swim in the pool. It looked... More

I was a guest May 31st and June 5th. My rooms were very clean and well maintained. Amenities included free parking, wifi, and an excellent hot breakfast.

We checked in very late!! We were checked into a used/dirty room!

Room 331 is an over priced, out dated, mold infested room. Before General Manager Kent copies and pastes his standard "We are trying, and we are so sorry you did not enjoy your stay" response to every bad review, he needs to take a tour of the room. Kent, when you go to room 331, walk to the desk. Look... More

I saw other reviews and it took be aback. The hotel is not bad but come on 5 starts!!! No way! The room was not completely clean and the plumbing was sub-par. The morning breakfast was ok. It is just an old hotel that was renovated and is showing its age again.
