Nice and clean and close to stores and Restaraunts.
It needed a micro wave and a small fridge,maybe a little better breakfast..
Decent pool and breakfast. Nice staff. Right next to Wendy's. Quiet.
limited breakfast options
The people was unkin
Rooms were clean
Room did not have a refridgerator or micro wave.
Up to date. Good parking.
Stopper in sink didn't work. Door to bathroom locked by it self and we had to get help to get it open. Not a very good breakfast. No computer available to guests. Pool closed for repair.
not a thing
Yes pool empty, we were put in a handicap room, breakfast put up at 9:00 on Sunday. I tried to get room on Thursday night at 11:00pm told no rooms not many cars in lot.
It was reasonably priced.
The staff did not seem very friendly. The breakfast was ok and we had to keep asking for different things to be refilled.
Found live Bedbug in Bathroom. This hotel still uses the old style bedding
The gentleman manning the desk was excellent. The facility was clean and the room was comfortable.
The proximity to the areas we planned to go was good but it was a bit of a convoluted route to get there. There were a few small things I noticed that needed some maintenance but it wasn't terrible. The continental breakfast could use oatmeal and fruit.
The staff was friendly and allowed us an early check in at no extra charge.
The hotel was dirty. There seemed to be quite a bit of renovations going on at the time.
Comfortable bed/room. Nicely furnished. Microwave, fridge, & coffee maker are nice conveniences.
Noisy fellow patrons. Talking loudly in the hall, outside my room 1:15-2:? Something am. Turned blower near window, on full blast, to help drown out the noise. Would have liked egg & meat choice @ bkfast. Cigarette smell in the hallways, both nights.
It was close to the event I was attending.
The ice machine did not work, there was no elevator,the breakfast selection was not impressive leaving me quite hungry.
Location, friendliness, price.
Pool closed at 9 pm. Would have liked it available until 10 pm.
Easy to find, and close to everything
Breakfast could have been a little better, but not complaining
Convenience to our week-end destination, and to the interstate. Front dest employees were friendly.
The breakfast was not very well supplied with the basics they had, and the basics were not very good. Many of our group went to McDonald/s for breakfast on our second morning there. Hallways were not very clean.
Ease of access from the highway
It was not very clean.
The staff was absolutely AWESOME!!
There was no fridge or microwave in the room. Smelled old and moldy.
Hotel was only ok. Nothing special
This was a dated hotel. It needs some TLC.
My husband and I stayed one night in this hotel. Didn't get the chance to use the pool but checked out the area and found it clean and well kept. Our room was spotless and comfortable. We will stay here again!
We had a large family gathering near this hotel. The staff was very accomodating to our family while we were there. We spent several nights taking up the gathering area in the front of the hotel. It was a great family time.
Stopped at this hotel for one night on our way to Michigan. The hotel location was very good with easy access from the highway. The service was excellent and we found the owner/manager to be a very friendly and helpful person. The room and beds were quite comfortable. We also liked the complimentary breakfast in the morning.
I used to use this motel a lot. Over the last year, I have used it twice. My first complaint is minor and is that they refused to do anything to help me get points toward future trips (based on hotel-affliated cards) solely due to the fact that I reserved on-line. In March, I was having a ''girls' weekend'' based at the hotel. I got a call that my 86 year-old mother was in the hospital in St. Louis. By 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon, we were packed and ready to go. At the desk, I explained the situation and the owner?/Manager? refused to give me a refund for Saturday night. He said the corporate office wouldn't let him as I booked on-line. I did save about $8 a night booking on-line. I offered to pay full price and bring a hospital receipt back to prove the situation. He still refused. The one night in a mediocre hotel cost around $***. My girl friends and I used to meet several times a year at 2 nights each. NEVER will we go back.
We found this hotel to be completely adequate for our stay. This is a basic hotel with not much flash or extras. Room seemed clean. Staff was friendly.
desk clerk was friendly and pleasant. when asked about where something was located in the area, was give the imformation need. room was clean and neat. we didn't use the pool but seen others in it and they were having a good time. tv could of used a few more choices of channels. our over all stay was great and we would stay again. we highly reccomend this as a place to stay.
The staff was great. The accomodations were clean and sufficient for anyone just needing a good solid room for a few nights. It was so quiet-it didn't seem like a motel stay at all! We stayed 2 nights and were pleasantly surprised after reading several negative reviews. The property could stand to be updated but it was o.k. for a no-frills, reasonable accomdation. Kudos to the staff for creating a comfortable atmosphere for a very tired couple!!
