  • Excellent

    The bed was comfortable and the room cozy and warm.

  • Mediocre
    Mar 2020

    Cheap rates and it was open when nobody else was

    The couple that does the reservation and runs the motel are very rude they charge your card before they're supposed to they said if I booked online they would not honor the booking that they want to do it themselves greedy crude rude I will never stay again

  • Poor

    location is OK, but not very convenient comparing to other motels.

    I cannot recommend this place. It is just too dirty, stained bed sheets, dark color "white" towels, smelly room, it stinks like old dirty shocks. And your cloth keeps that smell after you leave the place. The staff is exceptionally rude. I am usually very tolerant, rude staff does not bother me too much. But this place tops anything else in terms of how rude, unconcern, obnoxious is the staff. How they were able to stay in business is beyond my understanding.

    Easy check in and out, great location.

    Night staff wrote down my entire credit card number on my check in slip (I booked online with third party and paid in advance). I understand needing to charge for incidentals, but that should be something handled by the booking site, not hand written on a slip of paper. The ice machine was out of order(understandable in winter), but the in suite coffee machine was disgusting and looked like it has never been cleaned (Hamilton Beach home model). The bedding and towels were stained but clean. Window curtains wouldn’t close all the way unless pinned down by furniture, let light in from parking lot. Checked for bed bugs before I put anything inside. All said, met expectations for price and location.
