This place is pretty old and grotty looking, but comfortable enough, and clean. I had a ground floor "suite" and was surprised to find the windows did not open. Fortunately the A/C worked ok and wasn't too noisy. Very slow check in due to people who have no respect for other peoples' time. In the end I had a good...

This was a last minute highway stop over location choice for us. A good choice. The room we had was a nice room, very clean, very comfortable beds, adequate linen, helpful staff. It is budget accomodation and it is great value. Free wifi, parking at door and free breakfast (reasonable selection).Can recommend.

Reading the reviews in TA I was reluctant to stay here, but it was only for one night and the price was right. This is a older hotel and I can see where you might pass it up, but you do not have a lot of reasonable choices in Marion. When we arrived the lady that greater us was very...

We were very comfortable at this motel; clean, well appointed, quiet, but there was a couple inconveniences. First, the ice machine was out of order, and second, WiFi was intermittent. To make it a good weekend, we improvised, adapted, and overcame.

Visible presence of a couple of local meth-heads just out of sight from the lobby staff. At one point I needed to call the office when a local waste-head tried to force her way into my room. Pathetic continental breakfast. Nice staff, but I'm sorry I can't rate this higher

Carpet all wet around the air conditioner. Thankfully, the air conditioner worked. Unable to flush the toilet. Less than 10 minutes smoke came out of TV. Smell horrible. Called the front desk to complain, nothing they could do, rooms all booked. Breakfast was horrible. Would not recommend.

Hotel was clean. Rate was reasonable, just what we were looking for. Checked out the hotel next door first, it didn't look or smell good. Front desk lady was helpful in pointing us in right direction to eat. WalMart was also open late on the Sunday night.

Locals says this's the best place of this type of lodging to stay at in the area. Not much to choose from in this small community. Place has changed the company it's under and has a newer owner. Needs cosmetic work done. Place otherwise clean and well kept. Quiet rooms. Adequate continental breakfast.
