Low cost hotel. Cheap sheets, limited parking.

Pros: Inexpensive comparitively
Cons: Parking, sheets.
Location: Burger King within walking distance. Important only because if you drove your car to dinner, you'd lose your parking space and have to park on street
Best price in the area if you understand that it is a low cost hotel. They had a number of workers staying there who worked for a tree trimming service and filled the parking lot up with large trucks both nights. On the positive side, the towels were not the little thin cheap ones you get at most of the low end hotels.

Not horrible. But will not stay again.

Pros: Ease of access to highway. Other than that, nothing.
Cons: Room smellled. Shower didn't work correctly. Mini fridge was broken. Not enough towels.

Good location and reasonably priced

Pros: Quiet, location
I had read some reviews about this location being dirty. I did not have this experience, however. It was fairly average for this level of quality: very livable if you're looking simply for a reasonable place to sleep. I found the overall level of cleanliness satisfactory except perhaps for a coffee maker that requires a quick cleaning. The room was generally comfortable and I was satisfied. The front desk staff was friendly, although the desk person was distracted by the presence of her young granddaughter. For the price, I had no complaints, and given the motel's proximity to the interstate, it was very convenient for a simple overnight stay.

Very nice motel - will stay again

I am writing this review because this motel had some very poor reviews in the past, but I found that it was a very nice motel when I got there (I was with a group and had to stay there). They have evidently greatly improved over the last year. Rooms were clean, staff was very friendly and helpful, motel was quite even though on a major highway, and the room rate was downright cheap for the area. I would definitely stay here again.

Comfortable bed, great shower!

The bed was very comfortable and the shower was strong. I will stay here again when I need a place in the area. It is an older motel, and there were kids from a sports team running and making noise breifly but you get that most anywhere these days. It was clean and the desk clerks were congenial. The breakfast is skimpy but there's an IHOP close by if you want more. Good value for the price!

Avoid this One

No air was turned on in the room. It was over 100 degrees. Dead roach on bathroom floor, soap and hair scruncii left from previous guest.Sink drain plug and TV remote broken. Sheets so worn you could see through them, bathroom exhaust fan extremely noisy. kleenex made of 100% recycled paperRoom not remodled in at least 30 years. Avoid this place.

Not satisfied

The door to the room did not seem very secure even though it had a deadbolt . The frame itself was loose to the door . Very bad moldy smell to the entire room maybe it was the carpet . Bed uncomfortable to sleep in . Sure would not go back to the same I would rather pay more and have a better place to stay.
