Very helpful and responsive staff, clean and well furnished rooms, and nice amenities. The new owner has refurbished the entire hotel and it is much much nicer than before. It was a great stay! The GM Brandon personally checked us in and he was very friendly and warm.

Disregard previous reviews!

Office is run from one of the rooms - not an ""office."" Continental breakfast consists of your choice of boxed cereals and whatever you want to put in the rusty old toaster on the card table in the ""office"". Rooms were OK as far as being clean - hair dryer didn't work, paint/paper peeling off walls, windows were filthy and areas were boarded up due to a fire! Exterior doors were removed so hallways were dirty and had leaves blowing in. It was cheap but you get what you pay for. I would not recommend this motel.
