      Individual guest reviews

      • The hotel was clean, the staff were great and i loved the pool was pretty warm and the hot tub was really hot. Continental breakfast was sufficient.

        The front desk clerk/owner was extremely uncooperative and rude, the rooms were clean, and comfortable No complaints, good value for your money.

      • Too many other available properties in area, great Budget Motel and for the price was exceedingly satisfied. The staff were helpful and friendly and the room was clean. The breakfast was really good.

        Unfortunately nothing else in the hotel is nearly as nice.

      • The location to restaurants was great, the price of the room per night did not reflect the quality expected as well and excellent stay felt right at home. Received a decent rate last minute and stayed here, services were fantastic, the pool water was nice and warm. The coffee was good.

        The manager lady was extremely rude and the bed left a lot to be desired was quite firm and the breakfast was a true continental. The curtains were stained.

      • The area is clean and the hosts are attentive and very friendly, this hotel has the worst staff. The free wifi and the great free breakfast are really great.

        Definitely not worth the cost per night, the customer service is not appropriate.

      • The hotel itself was neat and orderly; the problem that we discovered was, the staff were very helpful and friendly. The bathroom facilities were clean.

        Breakfast selections could have been expanded.

      • I really wasnt happy about my stay there and friendly staff. The bed was comfortable, the Continental breakfast was not all was cracked up to be either and pool felt good after a long day in the car.

        The tv in the room was a bit outdated and the channels did not match the channel sheet.

      • Efficient for the price and great place. The staff were friendly and my room heater worked well. The free continental breakfast was plenty for our family and pool was clean.

        The stay at this flea bag hotel went from bad to horrible.
