Wow! Usually pay 160.00 or higher for a motel/hotel stay this nice. Stayed 1 night while traveling for work. Can tell the motel is run by a family and not a corporation. Renovated motel in a safe area off I-44. Exterior and interior of motel is in great condition, rooms and public areas inside and out well maintained and clean. Nice little touches that make the stay more than just a place to sleep/rest. Has outdoor pool overlooking river bluffs towards west for sunsets that is well maintained, outdoor automatic/gas fire pit with furniture for sitting also on west side, we’ll maintained landscaping and flower pots, small refrigerator, microwave and keurig in each room, hot breakfast served along with traditional continental items, real coffee mugs, soda machine prices are 1.00 instead of usual 2.00 or up prices, water bottle only 50 cents, clean/maintained laundry facilities, 2nd floor rooms with vaulted ceiling’s, majority of the rooms have parking directly outside your room except for west facing rooms on the 2nd floor, (these rooms have balconies instead) old fashioned popcorn machine in the lobby served in the evenings for free, games and books in the lobby to borrow for free, lobby with snacks and toiletries for sale, clean fluffy pool towels provided right inside the lobby doors and staff trained in customer service. (They actually stop what they are doing, greet you with a smile and ask if you need anything without you having to ask!) I could keep going. :)

Stayed two nights in a room with a king size bed. The temperature was comfortable and the A/C worked well. It ended up having more space than I expected. Things were clean and staff was friendly. Good location that's not far from local attractions.

It is a lovely hotel! Very clean, lot's of positive message-type artwork, very friendly staff. Hard wood floors were intriguing, with the only downside of hearing someone upstairs from us moving furniture so was a little noisy. Otherwise very nice hotel!
