The lobby was pretty and the employees were nice. Breakfast was good. The room smelled like smoke. There were people smoking and drinking in and around the pool.

The guest service personnel was very pleasant and accommodating allowing me to check in early on a really rainy afternoon. The property was clean and neat, very well kept. My room was comfortable and clean. The pool was clean as we the other facilities. The thing that impressed me the most was that the manager shook my hand at checkout and thanked me for staying with them and invited me back. While I didn't eat breakfast, it was a full breakfast with a variety of eggs, meats, pancakes and more. And best of all the nightly rate was reasonable. I would definitely stay there again.

We were very pleasantly surprised with our stay. The hotel has been recently renovated. The property and rooms look great and are clean. There were a lot of little "extras" that were a surprise at a budget motel. We definitely recommend.

Recently refurbished and exceptionally clean. Very good value. Comparable to chains costing 2x more. We'll seek locations on future travels.

Guest service was great. Exceptional actually. Clean room with comfortable bed. Pool area very nice. Dog park, and fitness room. One of the best free breakfasts ive seen. If i had to complain, the only thing that i personaly would have liked better was the shower. Not sure if it was the pressure or the shower head, but it wasnt as powerful as i like. This was our 2nd stay and i will do it again.
