Property conditions & facilities


4/10 Fair

We had less than 1/2 a roll of toilet paper and no extra rolls were in the room. 2 tiny bars of soap, no shampoos or any other amenities. Mattresses were only about 5" thick and were like sleeping on plywood. Pillows were very thin and uncomfortable. One of the bedspreads had a big tear on the top. No fitted sheets on the bed and the sheets that were there kept coming untucked. The place is for sale. It is like they don't care anymore.

2/10 Poor

Office staff was friendly and polite. The room needed a thorough cleaning-bathroom was clean, but carpet needed to be cleaned and vacuumed. Carpet edges were disgusting, carpet was dirty and sticky and there was actually stuff in the corners that a quick vacuum of the middle of the room missed. The bedspreads were tattered and stained. And while the door locked, it did not shut tight(appeared to have been pried open previously) so it really was not secure.

It was a nice little roadside motel. Nothing special, but it was clean and had a comfortable bed. This suited my needs on the night I stayed there.

2/10 Poor

Poorly maintained motel
Bedspreads were stained and in poor condition. Mattresses were very old, saggy and uncomfortable. This is not a motel I will ever use again nor recommend to anyone.

Nice small room. Had a fridge and a microwave with a flat screen. Beds and bathroom were decent, not the fanciest but it'll do. Had free coffee and a snack bar where you can buy pop and chips.

Just what we needed!
On short notice we needed a place to stay for one night for a funeral the next day. We got a great rate on line. Then called as we were leaving to let them know we wouldn't be arriving until 11pm. That is after they normally close. So they left our key in an envelope with instructions. We were very happy upon are arrival to find everything as we hoped it would be. There are nicer resort or chain motels but for a small town locally owned motel it was perfect for the night and everything we needed!

2/10 Poor

Not at all recommended
We requested a late check-in while booking the motel. But when we reached the hotel we found the office was closed. Then we contacted and they wasted 2hrs of our time without any result. At first tried to reach the hotel as they were convinced that the Motel offers 24-hr check-in facilities. Then attempted to find an alternate location and demanded that we pay the bills of this motel (where we were never able to check-in) first. At last we found a place ourselves in a different town. Horrible experience.
