We stopped here on the way thru after Thanksgiving. The price was about $80, but the place was older, a motel with doors to the outside (as well as to an interior hallway). It was advertised as a Best Western, but the clerk said they no longer had the Best Western name.

For a cheaper pet friendly hotel it was fine. No microwave here. Our room had an unusually large bathroom. Would work great for someone in a wheel chair. It was room 116. Outdated some but I thought fair for the price point.

Bathroom needs a full remodel or scrub down. Could hear Traffic from being close to the highway. Pool is outside and closed for the season. Breakfast was served 6-930 in the lobby. Hotel had the basics. Friendly front desk staff!

Room was okay. Dreary lobby, outdated decor, no elevator and so so breakfast for the price. Whole place needs painted, new carpet, and more friendly atmosphere. If you're just passing through, it's doable.

The location of this hotel was disappointing compared to the listing in the AAA book; however, the room was clean, bedding was very nice, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was also very good.

We checked into this hotel around 7 in the evening, and were more than satisfied with our rooms (we were a party of 3 in 2 rooms). They were adequate and clean, and very reasonably priced. The surprise came the next morning when we went down to the free breakfast. It was absolutely the greatest free breakfast setup I have... More

This hotel was convenient with a good restaurant next door and a gas station next to that. Everything you need is right there. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the breakfast was good.

We made last minute arrangements to stay there as we didn't know how far we would get. There is a restaurant right next door so very handy for dinner and a glass of wine. The room was small but clean, however the queen bed was not a queen. It was a full bed so we had to ask for extra... More
