We stayed here for one night, had read the reviews on TripAdvisor, and were a little skeptical. But when we checked in, it wasn't as bad as we expected. The rooms need updated, but there was no sign of bugs around, or anything that seemed unclean. The beds are a little uncomfortable, but for the price, what do you expect....

See attached. do not stay unless to intend to pay more. They accuse you for stealing and charge things to your card to make more. Manager Tia is horrible! Make sure all items are in your room BEFORE you check in because if you leave, they will charge you for things they did not provide.

Not a 3 star motel.....but, it was nice! Only one elevator for 3 floors and it is not centrally located for most of rooms! And parking can be a nightmare! There is plenty of it, but not necessarily anywhere close to your room.....especially if you leave in afternoon and come back later in evening! Rooms are decent and clean and...

Bought a Groupon for this hotel and for the price I paid was expecting a lot less, but was pleasantly surprised. The room and bathroom were clean. There was also a refrigerator and small microwave and Wi-fi included. Wi-fi was slow at times but it was included. Breakfast was included with our stay and it had a variety. They also...

We got there check out time is 10am and we arrive a little after 1 and they said we would have to wait an hour to check in. Was truly upset because we had been driving for 6 hours that day alone and we were ready to relax. The location was convenient! The breakfast was sad. The room not clean...

Room smelled musty, floor had not been vacuumed. Hairs on bathroom vanity and shower.My husband got in shower, pulled the shower curtain closed, there was a washcloth (it had apparently been used) on top of shower curtain. When he pushed shower curtain back we noticed mildew on the ceiling, so it's untelling how long it had been there.

We stayed 3 nights, the lobby was clean and friendly. The room was good and clean.. But they say free wi-fi we could never connect.. They stated it was our room location. The free breakfast was good but they need a new spot for the waffle grill it backs up everyone.
