Room was adequate. A little mold on the tub handles in the bathroom. Bed was extremely comfortable and pillows were also. Mattress was firm which was good for my back. Continental breakfast was very good. My night was quiet and peaceful.

We stayed one night, driving from KY to FL. We chose this hotel due a good deal at a booking website.Staff were very friendly during check in, check out and breakfast. Room size is decent, but it was not the cleanest and the biggest issue was the bed. There was no down elastic sheet, just a regular sheet, therefore, the...

This hotel is located by a partially abandoned strip mall. The rooms are clean and comfortable with fridge, microwave and ice machine available. My only complaint is the noise level from the street which is located a good distance from the hotel. I could hear motorcycles and sirens most of the night. Otherwise a good place to stay.

The room size in this hotel is good. Large double bedded room with an adequate sized bathroom. I understand that this hotel is a no frills establishment but even so clean rooms are paramount.
