For the price it was much better than expected. Hot shower, soft bed, working ac/heat, clean room, friendly staff. Microwave and mini fridge in room. No coffee maker. We didn't use the pool. We were made aware of a free breakfast but never took advantage of it.

While on our road trip, we stopped at this friendly hotel. We found the three basics for a stay were covered very well; CLEAN, COMFORTABLE & AFFORDABLE. This hotel is in transition of being updated and the owner is doing a good job to accomplish that. So expect some of the furnishings and decor to be dated and older. If anything is unusable.. just politely ask the front desk and they will attend to it. We enjoyed the outdoor unheated pool and the simple included breakfast which are two extra amenities you usually find in pricier accommodations. So keep up the good work STAY INN and THANKYOU for a pleasant night..

Upon entering the parking area you were forced to navigate around sporadically positioned small cones used for asphalt sealing, although it was apparent that the sealant was completely dry from being applied days earlier: didn’t appear to be a professional that was contracted or possibly the material was applied by a onsite worker. Upon entering the office it was apparent that ownership and management was of foreign decent, likely from India. We requested a non-smoking room that was not used by travelers with pets. Upon entering our room, it reeked of smoke, there was a cleaning person in the adjoining room, we knocked and asked if there was a room that was free from smoke odor, he told us to wait while he went to the office for alternate arrangements, upon returning with a can of Febreeze he entered a room a few doors down, came back out and asked if would be acceptable, it was so much better so we said it was ok. The key card that the owner/manager provided to him didn’t work, although his master card worked: he again went to the office for reprogramming, second time didn’t work, again back to the office, third time didn’t work, he returned to the office again while we baked in the sun: the fourth time he returned with a computer to reprogram the door lock, after 15 minutes of programming both, key and lock, finally had a functional key, at least we thought so. Several hours later, 11:30ish after returning from dinner/friends, we tried opening the door multiple times, can’t get in, back to the office, the same cleaning person was still on site and assisted with the hassle, he ultimately provided a key card that worked and told us the owner would provide a discount for our troubles…………. That discount was never provided!! The place is old and not much has been done to improve the environment or persons experience also located next to a busy noisy freeway This may be a less expensive option versus other local hotels, however, you get what you pay for, and in this case, it would be advisable to spend a little more for a better experience. Hope this helps

We had a reservation at Stay Inn that we booked through Expedia. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to cancel. Stay Inn promptly responded to my inquiry and issues via Facebook Messenger and kept up communication with me until my issue was resolved. Unlike Expedia who had awful customer service, Stay Inn was awesome all the way to the end. Thank you for your great service!

I was pleasantly surprised with this motel. It was in a snug location near the interstate and amenities that I needed. The front desk person was really kind and helped me with an early checkin. It was quiet and there was plenty of parking. I ended up booking more nights because of the good price and comfortable room.

Our room was comfortable and pleasant and conveniently placed by the pool which was super. The location is simple and easy and no fuss., we just pull up and walk in, what could be better than that? I liked the table and chairs in the room and the couch for added sitting, often times in rooms you dont have couches and a nice round table with easy light chairs you can sit at comfortably, much like home, so that was good. The room was clean and everything worked. The staff was very friendly and helpful, anything you ask of them they will help you. The pool water was super refreshing, they also got out an umbrella for us personally while at the pool. Everyone there works hard and tries to make sure you have what you need. The price of the hotel was priced well and also conveniently located next to krogers and other stores. We would stay again.

Traditional no-frills roadside motel. Basic but comfortable, very clean, secure, quiet, warm and dry (it's currently snowing). Shower pressure is a bit lacking but totally adequate and water piping hot. TV and wifi, fridge, microwave, good coffee in the morning. Room rates incredibly cheap yet customer service is way better than we have experienced at most high-end hotels! Second time staying there and it won't be our last.

I had chosen this hotel for the price and the fact, they allowed pets. The first 'manager' I dealt with, was very friendly, helpful and customer orientated (sorry, can't remember her name now). very pleasant to deal with! however, once I had to deal with the 2nd 'manager' Miki, the stay changed rapidly to a close nightmare. he will make sure you don't feel welcome very quickly! I was in town to work 12 hours a day and on night shift. when Miki was there, no outside light where on at 7am when I returned. I had to guess where the sidewalk was when talking my dog. we will make sure there is no coffee in the morning, even that is states there is breakfast. nobody at the front desk either. phone won't be answered. I had to renew my room for another week but no answer. that wasn't a problem with the other 'manager'. but he first woke me up after only 2 hour sleep and after, didn't want to renew my room. he also refused to open the door to retrieve my property and dog! had to call the police to get my belongings. everything here is outdated! and on top of that, they will charge you so much extra for a pet, that you could have stayed in a much nicer place. I would never go anywhere near this place. even the police officer said, this happens a lot here...

To say that this was the worse motel that I've ever stayed in would be an understatement. I arrive to the room and the front window was open as if the room was being aired out. I then noticed that all the rooms that didn't have guests were open as well...a little weird. I entered the room, set my stuff down and decide to phone the front desk for a wake up call. Surprise, no telephone...never saw that before. Okay, every motel has a radio alarm clock that I can set but not this place, there was no radio alarm. The room was old and in poor condition in every aspect and that's the good news. There were cob webs in the corners of the wall. The security latch on the door was broken off. The faucet handle on the sink was broken and rusted and in the bathroom the floor hadn't been mopped and in the toilet bowl was sh*t splatter and the underside of the toilet seat had urine stains...NO KIDDING! If it had not been so late at night I would have left and checked in somewhere else. Because of these issues and others I immediately pack my bags and placed the in them car were I would have slept had I felt it safe to do so. There was no way that I was going to climb into that motel room bed to sleep. Instead I decided to sit up all night until I could leave to catch my ferry home at 6:30 in the morning.
