Great location. Great oarking
Everything was perfect!
Great breakfast for a motel
A few miles from the centre but only took about 10 minutes
The gentleman at the front desk was efficient throughout checking/out and very nice. Our room was clean and an added bonus it was downstairs. TV was in good working order with plenty of choices to watch.
The bed was a bit hard, and on a queen bed I would have preferred to have 4 pillows instead of 3. Also the blanket directly under the comforter should have been one of those soft velour type blankets but was so old and worn it was scratchy to the touch.
I always stay here at the continental inn when I come into town & even tho the prices are just a little above the cheaper hotels in the area, I dont mind paying it because it is also cleaner than alot of the other hotels & I dont feel like some bed bugs are gonna hitch a ride home with me.
I can honestly say that In probably 15 or 20 times I've stayed here in the last 2 years, the very last time I stayed here 5 or 6 weeks ago was the only time where there's ever been an issue & that issue was my 5 gallon gas can filled with gas, got stolen from the back of my truck that was parked under the building across the street in the garage like parking spaces.
