Worst hotel ever! On the second day of our four day stay we left the hotel in the morning to attend a funeral. When we returned to our room we found a mysterious wet spot on the beds. When I talked to the front desk the manager told me that house keeping is still in the hotel, however they have...

The staff members are very nice and this motel still offers smoking rooms. Although we are non-smokers we have family members and friends who smoke and it is nice to be able to offer a place in-doors to smoke while we visit. The property exterior is in the process of being repainted and a welcome sign over the main entrance...

Staff was friendly, bed was comfy, but, room needs updating. Would stay there again. Did not eat breakfast, slept in.Did not use the pool but, area looked nice and clean. Internet was faster than some of the very expensive hotels I've stayed in.

Stayed here because all other hotels in town were booked up. Poor choice on our part! Rooms were filthy. Sheets appeared clean but I felt like blankets and bedspread were very dirty. The whole hotel smells strongly of cigarette smoke, even nonsmoking rooms. Slept with window open wide so as to be able to breathe (and that was in a...

We reserved 3 rooms for members of our family. All the rooms were clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable. There were blackout curtains for a good night's sleep. The free breakfast had more variety than most free motel breakfasts. I highly recommend this motel.

Good clean place for an overnight stay when on a road trip.. The breakfast was satisfying and plentiful. Only have two complaints (1) the external appearance could use some work particularly with weed management and (2) a more visible sign is needed.

I usually have great experiences at this hotel chain. But this property scares me. I'm not removing my shoes in my own room b/c I don't trust the carpet. Everything smells--either smoke, oldness, or air freshener to cover it all up. The lobby and parking lot have an unusual number of men hanging out and staring at passersby. And a...

I am a big fan of this hotel chain. Or -- rather -- I USED to be. This particular hotel is obviously one of their OLDEST properties, and is getting a bad review for the following reasons: 1. I booked a non-smoking room, and paid for the room at the time of booking. But there was no non-smoking room available....

The hotel lobby and our non-smoking room smelled horribly of smoke. Booked a King room and got a queen bed. Had to open up the window and crank the air and leave for awhile to make the smell tolerable in the room.
