Claim to offer free breakfast. They do not due to covid even though the pool is open. They need to update their listing. Free breakfast was one of the search criteria I was looking for

It wasn’t what we expected. The pictures were looked a lot better. Nobody was ever at the front desk when you needed them. Just expected more from the reviews.

Currently due to state restrictions and keeping in mind safety of our valued guest we can not keep pool or spa open and we are sorry for that. Normally our maintenance staff inspect rooms regularly and they probably missed. Can you please tell us which room # were you in? Thank You fro staying with us.

We booked the deluxe king suite and it was very comfortable and clean. Unfortunately when we went to use our whirlpool tub the jets wouldn’t work at all. It’s the second time we’ve stayed there and it hasn’t worked. The tv wasn’t plugged into the satellite or anything so we had to figure that out. We also had to stand at the counter for 10 minutes while a worker was vaccumming behind us and one was sitting back behind the counter on her phone before anyone helped us. Besides those couple things it’s work a night.

Okay hotel- not quite worth the money

The room was hot- air conditioner was not turned on. Could have been cleaned better. Kids enjoyed the pool. Breakfast was okay- not a lot of choices and juice machine wasn't working first morning. We did like the rooms being big enough for kids have lots of space.

Decent for the money

After a very stressful day this motel was a nice change of pace. The staff was very friendly, they were very happy to help with directions and were very cheerful. The beds were well worn. The rooms however were clean. The pool was nice, and the rest of the public areas were inviting.
