Stayed for an overnight while we were on the road. Everything is just worn down. Confusing layout with poor signage. Beds, carpet and wallpaper were in need of replacement. Window was broken in entry way. Bar was nice, but in need of renovation. Room was large and refrigerator and microwave were nice.

First time staying here, we travel to area yearly for sports competition. Our room was updated and clean. Poor lighting however. Hotel overall was clean and had updates. Needed some sprucing up in some areas. One common issue throughout, including our room was that the carpeting desperately needs to be replaced. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Wonderful staff, and great convention rates for the room. Meeting space was just perfect for both our Business meeting and banquets. Guest Rooms were spacious and clean. Amenities were good, Outdoor pool was a good gathering spot. Hot tub was a little murkey.

While the staff made up for a lot, unfortunately there were a lot of things they had to make up for. The price was great, but you get what you pay for at this motel. The breakfast was adequate—there were limited options—it's hard to go wrong with hard boiled eggs, yogurt cups and bagels. They did have three types of...

While the hotel has all the amenities of a 4 star hotel, my room had a mustiness to it, and my allergies were in revolt for a while. The room has a refrigerator and coffee maker. The bathroom is adequate, but no grab bar in the tub for safety.The staff was cordial and accommodating. If people make the place, we...

Our room smelled bad and there were stains on the carpet. The shower did not drain well so within minutes, I was standing in water. The outdoor pool looked appealing until I saw how cloudy the water was. The breakfast was not as nice as in other restaurants. The inside of the hotel was very attractive-dark wood and nice decorations,...

My wife and I spent a night here on our way to Wisconsin. This is a very large 2-story 1980s motel with both an in-door and an out-door pool. The place has obviously been updated in the last few years but it does look a little tired. But having said that it is clean and comfortable with good beds for...

The price of this room was comparable to any other 3 or 4 star name brand hotel, so I would expect the same quality or better. I was traveling solo and this place was not safe feeling at all. I was put in the very back building, and it seemed very sketchy to have an outside entrance but be told...

This is a cheap hotel for a night's stay. The hotel and room was very out dated but worth the money as there was a full refrigerator and microwave and comfortable bed to sleep in. The layout of the hotel is very odd and confusing. Check in took forever as there was nobody at the front desk to check me...
