The hotel refused to let my daughters of 18 and 20 check into the hotel so I got charged for a room that we couldn’t even have and had to pay for another room on top of it so they would have somewhere to stay...I will never book at this hotel again and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

I apologize for any inconvenience however as per Knights Inn policy, we are not allowed to check in anyone under 21 years of age. Without parents present anyone below 21 cannot stay alone in the room. Knights Inn has not changed on CC for this reservation. Please contact 3rd party (Expedia, travel city) where you made the reservation and work with the refund issue. Thank you, Knights Inn management

This is a good place at a fair price to spend the night. I needed to change my room type at the last minute and the staff was very accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was dated an a little cramped though.

Good, basic lodging

Definitely a throwback to an earlier age in motel style and amenities, but it is clean, quiet, comfortable, and inexpensive. Recommended.

Good value for price

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, clean, inexpensive
Cons: Poor breakfast
We stayed here for my son's college orientation because there were no rooms available at "nicer" hotels. But we were pleasantly surprised at what we got for the low cost. The hotels is older, but the rooms were clean and there was no lingering "smoke" smell that you get in older hotels. Breakfast was not very good, but still typical for continental breakfast. Lights a little dim and no clock radio (probably would have supplied one but we use personal alarms anyway). Would definitely stay again.
