This place needs a total makeover. The rooms are old and the only thing that has been updated are the bedspreads. They need to clean and bring in new bedding, matresses, better light and 110 plugs. The staff needs to learn how to greet people and not act like they hate everyone and thing.The bathrooms needs to be completlely redone,...

Although my family stayed at the motel numerous times in the 80's & 90's, and always enjoyed it, I haven't needed to find a place for out of town guests until this past October. After checking online, I was appalled by the negativity of the reviews and almost steered my friend to a different motel. I'm glad I didn't. I...

I think people are exaggerating with this hotel, our stay was quite nice, the front desk staff was extremely helpful, the room was clean and i think it was quite enjoyable, i think most of the bad reviews must be from ex employees who want nothing more than to try to shame this hotel. Its too bad, we enjoyed our...

Terrible, checked in to find trash not removed from room, no bathroom linens, and it appeared the bed had been slept in (pillow case had something sticking to it and was stained) and just made w/o linen change. Dirty, staff foul.

It was really confusing and difficult to enter the drive way and we had difficult finding a good restaurant. The TV had mostly news channels and the rooms lock was broken or randomly unlocks!

To begin, I want to say that the staff here was nothing short of excellent!! From the check-in process to the ladies cleaning (or attempting to clean) the room, everyone was awesome. The room, however left MUCH to be desired. The rug is WAY overdue for cleaning (replacement would be a better idea). It feels damp all the time, my...
