Great mom and pop motel
When I travel alone, I look for small mom and pop hotels that are clean, comfy, friendly, and we’ll cares for. American inn scores well on all 4 accounts. I have stayed there twice now in a recently renovated room, and the family that runs the place has been very helpful. They keep everything clean and tidy and are obviously investing back into the property. I’ll be staying again!

A Great Place to Spend the Night
The staff was very helpful and friendly. They checked on us to see how the stay was going. It's a small place and the rooms are a little dated, but they were clean, had a fridge and microwave, and it is a convenient location close to the highway entrance.
