An older motel, run down. All the rooms have an outside entrance so you hear vehicles in the parking lot. The breakfast was not very good. We would not recommend or stay here again. We were very disappointed.

For less than $50 per night, I was anxious about staying here. But I got a great night's sleep. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The sheets seemed relatively new (though the comforter was a bit old). But the staff really made it nice. They were so friendly and helpful. When I ruined a waffle on the waffle-maker...

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I was low on cash and had only 7k points in my rewards account. This hotel accepts 6k choice points and had a good rating so I booked it. It was sufficient, a clean, quiet room and everything in working order. The shower was above average as it had very strong pressure. The pillows and comforter...

We stopped here one night and were greeted warmly, Our room was non-smoking, attractive, and super clean.

Your review is greatly appreciated, though it is very disappointing to learn of the bad impression we made with the state of our accommodations.

Brandon was busy when we arrived, but he was very good at multi tasking (answering phone, checking in customers & grabbing extra towels for customer). We were checked in very quickly even though he had multiple things going. He was very friendly, as well as the morning staff. Breakfast was good, room was clean. What more could you ask for?
