I was from California to Pennsylvania non stop I averaged 1500 a day, I stopped at this location because it was located on the same street as my gas station, I had already been driving for 29 hours and needed to stop for fuel food and a short rest period. So this became the spot

Location wasn't the greatest, it's right beside a busy motorway and not many shops or places to see, room was ok, bed was ok, shower floor was worn but the shower was nice, tv was a decent flatscreen with good channels and WiFi was good.

We use to stop here all the time with our pets, but that was long ago it has gone way down hill. We were on our way to Minnesota to visit family and it was late and we were tired should have kept going. They put my daughter and her husband on the other side of the building away

My boyfriend made reservations online before reading reviews. After reading the reviews we hoped it wasn't that bad. IT WAS THAT BAD. After looking at a room that was filled with files we walked out, got money back and got away from this dump.

The only good thing I can say is the roof didn't leak. We made reservations for 2 nights at $59.95 + tax and paid $239. The people partying on the 2nd floor didn't quit until 3. The beds were lumpy and the microfridge didn't work. The only thing that worked right was the desk
