We are a couple traveling cross country on bicycles from Buffalo, NY and when we got here, we were an hour early to check in and they still let us go to our room. When you normally sleep in a tent everyday, and stay outside all day, walking into the room was amazing! The room was nice and cool, bed... More

Stayed here for two nights because I had some business to attend to nearby. Price per night was pretty cheap so wasnt expecting much. My room was clean, king size bed was sufficient. Luckily no loud noises when I stayed. Free breakfast was decent.

The couple that ran the front desk were very nice. We only stopped here for the night on a long journey (24 hour) home and didn't want to pay a lot of money. This place did the trick; we got a good nights rest for cheap. The cleanness is as expected - I did not see any bugs and the... More

Questionable clientele, loud parties (until 3am), no respect for guests trying to get rest. Beds are uncomfortable, sheets felt like sandpaper, no amenities, one staff member. The hotel was clean but that was the only plus. Families with young children should not stay here. Indoor pool but not filled with water. No food/snacks.

We have stayed at this hotel before and always been happy with what's offered for a very reasonable price. We didn't get in until 9 PM so didn't have a chance to take advantage of any of their amenities. A nice place for the money.

Not a bad hotel for the price. Room was nice and clean. In general the hotel lot could be updated. Location was good. Plenty of places to enjoy a meal, some within walking distance. Front desk lady was nice and friendly.

Cheap motel right off the highway. Clean enough for $55/night double room with 4 people. It's a cheap motel, people, what do you expect? The staff was friendly and efficient. The room was clean. The free breakfast was respectable. If you're looking for a 5-star inn to spend your honeymoon, go somewhere else. If you're looking for a clean, cheap,... More
