Cleanest place we have ever stayed! Was very quiet and front office very nice. Cinnamon sticks was a great place for breakfast that was next door. Would definitely stay here again.

This was definitely the best value around. I had looked at some other options and this was a best price in the closest proximity to where we needed to be in the next morning. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was and very clean. The staff definitely take pride in keeping everything looking nice. We would definitely stay again!

Our stay was perfect! The outside of the property is deceiving. I was a little concerned pulling up, it looks like your stereotypical roadside motel, but thats not the case. Check-in was quick and easy, friendly staff. Our room was super spacious, clean, and seemed to be recently updated. There was a microwave, mini fridge, and coffee maker which was nice. The floors were NOT carpeted which i love (carpeted hotels really gross me out since theyre hard to keep clean). The restaurant next door is very good fod breakfast, and you get a discount! Also discounts for other places close by - i highly suggest cattle dog coffee roasters! Overall a great comfortable stay. Will book again if we're in the area.

The room was clean and comfortable, however the shower barely got warm, the sink drain smelled horrific when running hot water, and the coffee maker and refrigerator didn't work. We didn't discover that the fridge didn't work until the morning after putting our dinner leftovers in it so they went bad. The staff was great though and gave a cash refund of $20 for the value of the food. The only other complaint is that the room only had slat type blinds on the window which don't really block out the light. I can't ever remember staying in a hotel that didn't have room darkening blinds. These are all pretty simply solved issues so hopefully they will be resolved for the next travelers.
