Comfortable and good value

If you want a nice place to get a good night's rest and a place that's accessible to restaurants and shopping and very comfortable beds....then this is the place. First right turn off the toll road--- and you're there. Staff is very friendly and helpful to try to accomodate all your needs while there. While nothing fancy - it is good value.

Oh boy; where to start? Well, it’s safe to say, this place probably won’t be mistaken for a Four Seasons anytime soon. The outer appearance of the building and grounds, will leave a little to be desired; and overall curb appeal is rather lacking. The inside? Well, we’ll get to the inside in a minute or two.... The Good: This property does have a good location: its close to the interstate; as well as several restaurants, including a family place called Callahan’s, which sits at the front of the driveway. Walmart and more(package stores👏) are just around the corner too. They also have a huge side parking lot; exclusively used for semi trucks, motor homes, etc; which is handy....Oh, and the nice young lady at the front desk was extremely nice, and did a fine job of checking us in, etc....Sorry we didn’t catch her name, so she’d get recognized. On the flip, we ran into the manager, who wasn’t very friendly at all... The Bad: The motel itself is in a major need of repairs, and renovations. The list: The sink stays clogged up; the toilet doesn’t flush properly; the Heater n A/C unit is very inconsistent. And of course, besides a good cleaning, the rooms are in pretty bad shape overall. Carpet needs replaced, walls need painting, and everything else replaced. The rooms still have popcorn ceilings; which went out in the early 90’s. The bathroom needs a complete renovation as well. The pool area, though it is winter, doesn’t look very appealing. The rest of the outside? Well, you’re starting to get the picture.... Would we stay here again? Well, they do have truck parking, and with a rate of $48 on a weekend, it was roughly 1/2 the price of their competitors. But all being said, probably not; at least not multiple nights. Honestly, the owners need to close half the motel for the winter, and completely redo a portion; and then next winter, do the rest. To me, it’s a no brainer: it’d improve the property, while making it more inviting. And besides, I’m sure they realize it’s a tax write off.... Oh, almost forgot: there’s an on property restaurant, which was closed down for some reason(we heard repairs 🙄)....But, we have another theory. So, given all the shortcomings at this time, I’d have to say No, sadly, we wouldn’t recommend a stay here: Even with the discount, or any other coupon...Sorry Note: I tried taking pics, but my phone memory was full.... sorry
Will not be back

The only reason we chose this hotel was that it took pets. The parking lot and surrounding area were consistently littered and not cleaned up. The rooms and hallways were in desperate need or remodeling and upgrades. The room was clean but musty. The staff was pleasant and helpful.

I stayed here recently, and I will not be back. The parking area, sidewalks, and hallways were filthy. There were trash, food wrappers, and discarded drink cups everywhere. They were there at night and still there in the morning. There was what appeared to be a discarded stack of mattresses and box springs in a large public area. The edges of the carpet all around the room didn't appear to ever have been vacuumed. Dust and dirt all the way around. There was also a big wad of hair hanging down underneath the edge of the bed I didn't sleep in. The tissue holder and shower handle were old, discolored, and difficult to manage. That should be an easy upgrade. The bathroom mirror was dirty, too. All in all, this place needs upgrades to the rooms and some major cleaning! Beware.
Great Little Place - Excellent helpful Staff

Stayed here last night and was pleasantly surprised. It is true some of the fixtures are showing some age, however the place was well priced, very clean, the beds comfortable and the staff amazing and very helpful. Keep up the good work !!
