Tub faucet very loose in wall, no hot water in sink had been turned off due to a leak. Screws showing on walls where pictures used to be. In need of serious repair. Desk Clerk had no knowledge of near by restaurants. Simple but good breakfast included. Apparently, new owners since July. Abandoned restaurant in parking lot.

They are very helpful, rooms are clean & the breakfast is good. Feels safe in this area & you can walk to the ARK ENCOUNTER & save 10 dollars. On TripAdvisor it states that pets are OK, but they are not; however they were able to helps us out on that account.

The staff was polite. The towels & bedding were clean but the room seemed dingy, the carpet was dirty and I killed a large bug in the bathroom. There was a breakfast included in the service, nothing fancy but OK. The motel was very close to my destination, "The Ark Encounter" but I would not stay there again.

This place is right across from the Ark Encounter which is very convenient. It's under new ownership and in the process of being remodeled we were told. The room we stayed in was clean but dated. Mattress was not very comfortable or supportive. Only a sheet and very thin cover was on the bed. AC worked great, water was nice...

This model is definitely older and in need of some refurbishing. That said, the beds were fine, the linens were clean, and the water was hot. It's also conveniently located right next to a gas station/mart and half a block away from a nice Mexican restaurant. We'll certainly be happy to stay there again the next time we visit the...

Very disappointed with this hotel. It was filthy and stinky smoke smell although it was supposed to be non-smoking room. There was pieces of old food by the bed side and up to the ceiling. Floor had lots of stain. Will never use this hotel ever again!
