Rooms were very clean and spacious. The restaurant served awesome pizza and the waitress was very friendly, they also had a hot wing eating contest that...

Went out of his way to accommodate. We ran into some serious car trouble while visiting. Took us to the local store, made numerous calls in assisting us trouble shooting the problem, as well as even allowing us to use his vehicle. Very clean, safe, and affordable establishment, nothing but a positive recommendation.

This was the absolute worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was filthy and smelled like smoke, there were lights that didn't work, there was no toilet paper, no one came to make the beds or tidy up the room during our stay, and all we could hear was children yelling and screaming. I felt like a $10.00...

When we drove up last week, we saw the sign "Under New Management." Obviously there have been problems, and hopefully, they can work them out. There was not even a mattress pad on the bed. no curtain on the window in the bathroom, and burned out lightbulbs. The lady at the desk was very friendly.

Motel should be shut down. The new manager is dealing with a severe pregnancy crisis, but instead of taking care of business--ie getting someone else or cancelling reservations, guests are left to muddle along with a marginally clean rooms with literarly no service. Just spent four nights, and rooms were never cleaned, trash was never picked up, towels never changed....

My list of quality complaints is extensive, may be new owners but if so they are over their heads. Wifi doesn't work in rooms, towels stuffed in bathroom window as a curtain, bathroom door doesn't close, smelly trash barrel and flies outside door, outside lights etc. never cleaned, stains on quilt, this motel no better than 1 star at best....

My husband and I stayed one night this past weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the recently renovated room. Don't expect a Hilton, but our room and bathroom were clean and updated with all of the necessary amenities. The inn-keeper is extremely nice and trusting, as she left an envelope on the desk with our keys since we arrived late...
