Cons: The signs made it confusing wasn't sure if it was the right place or not.
5.0 Okay
Cons: We've been there before & didn't have noise concerns. This time the road noise was difficult to drown out at night....not sure but might have been cuz the bed was closer to the window than the previous time....a different room set up I guess.
7.5 Good
Pros: Location
Cons: Beds were small and the bathroom vent fan was so loud that you could not be in there with it running. It automatically came on with light. Took showers with flash light from phone. The lady at the front desk said she was going to take care of it and was very sorry.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The room was comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was good. Check OUT clerk was very friendly.
Cons: The check in clerk was just short of rude. Very curt in her interaction. Additionally, the breakfast food in the crockpot was ice cold. Everyone had to microwave the eggs and sausages. The pool was out of service, which was a disappointment.
6.8 Good
Pros: Clean comfortable room, quiet.
Cons: No sign for hotel, one side had no sign, other side was former name (Settle Inn). Only INSIDE was name Baymont used. Room had double bedside light, did not work- plug had been removed.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very comfortable
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was clean and it was next to the pool which was nice.
Cons: The breakfast wasn't very good. The eggs were cold squares and the sausage was a weird texture. The lady making breakfast was telling people that there would be more sausage out soon she was microwaving more! I'm sure this is how sausage is made for hotel breakfasts but maybe it didn't need to be announced. Hard to find and Baymont sign wasn't up

Cons: Nothing, everything was good.
4.3 Okay
Pros: The desk clerk was courteous and that is all
Cons: Being “pet friendly “ does not mean you reserve 1 room and keep it filthy for anyone traveling with a pet. Put in flooring instead of carpet if you are never going to clean it. The room smelled like a urinal. The towels were stained and heavily worn. The bedding was from the 80’s. Found a huge spider in the bathroom along with its large web. Got there too late at night to leave.
9.0 Excellent

9.5 Excellent
Pros: no breakfast offered
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly front desk person. Rooms very clean.
Cons: Pool under maintain. Maybe mention that during check in.
4.3 Okay
Pros: I liked the location right off the inter state. Very convenient
Cons: I reserved two rooms months ago, non smoking. When we arrived at 9:25 pm after a 10 hour drive, I was told at check-in that my two SMOKING rooms were ready. What?! I reserved two non smoking rooms. The clerk told me the hotel was full and I had the last two rooms. I asked him if he ran my credit card and he said yes. I let him know that I stayed there the same week in 2018 and the service was excellent. Not this time. I will not be back during my annual trip out west.
6.3 Good
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful. Room and property was very clean
Cons: The bed and pillows were very uncomfortable. Didn’t have coffee machine in the room. Had to ask for hair dryer and kleenexes at the front desk.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Property was very clean, staff was friendly and answered my questions and addressed all our requests. Only drawback was our room was rather small.
Cons: Bed was a little firmer than I prefer.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The room was quiet and cool. Much appreciated after a hot drive.
Cons: The pool was still under construction, which was a little disappointing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The convenient location was just off the Interstate. The landscaping was lovely and the motel is surrounded by well groomed acreage. My room was basic and extremely clean - great value! I stayed there over July 4 with my dogs to escape my city's extreme fireworks and we were thrilled that the location meant it was quiet and peaceful, within an easy drive of some beautiful small towns and many parks and wildlife areas. With stormy weather in the 90F range, the room a/c worked great on the heat and humidity. There was a large bathtub, plenty of hot water, and lots of shower water pressure. The staff was very friendly. The pool was closed for renovation (we wouldn't have used it anyway). Good selection of vending machine snacks and pop/water. Subway restaurant was next door and Flying J truck stop and restaurant was a walkable distance across the highway. This isn't a really fancy place with lots of extras that most people won't use anyway. It is quiet and provides a good night's sleep at a very reasonable price. For me, the best part is that they accepted dogs.
Cons: It would be nice if there was a microwave available for guest use in the common area. The rooms are basic and do not include refrigerators, coffee makers (free coffee in the lobby, however), or microwaves.
6.8 Good
Pros: The owner was very friendly & accommodating. The room was clean. Nice to have an elevator to the 2nd floor.
Cons: Beds are hard, a mattress on a wood base. Cheap decor. No carpet in the room. No refrigerator, no microwave, no coffeemaker, no breakfast. 2 bars of soap provided but no other toiletries. If you want shampoo, kleenex, hairdryer or ironing board, you have to ask for them at the front desk. The owner said a microwave was provided in their break room for guest use, which was absolutely filthy. The view out the window was a wall of the building. I booked this room quickly without researching reviews as I always do. Hard lesson, but learned.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The price and cleanliness.
Cons: The bed was not comfortable.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Clean room
Cons: I booked two adjoining rooms at this motel with a pool. When I arrived pool had just been filled in and under construction. I was told by front desk I could use public pool in town. I was also told by front desk adjoining rooms wouldn't be a problem , then she gave us rooms across from each other . I arrived first and then daughters family 3 hours later so I had no clue that they wasnt next to me until she arrived . I asked the front desk why and she replied well she is across from you and the adjoining room next to me had been booked out . No smoking room 100.00 fine and there was a cigarette burn in bedspread. To late to leave and everyone was to tired from our travels . We have done this trip multiple times it's our half way mark to get our grandkids and look forward to the visit while kids swim.

2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: It had fire damage and bugs
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Room was spacious, clean and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was better than most...especially for the price.
7.5 Good
Pros: The man at check-in was very pleasant and helpful. The room was larger than I expected and it and the bathroom were very clean.
Cons: Upon arrival we discovered that one of the buildings had suffered a serious fire, so the pool was closed. It was a bit disconcerting to image what it would have been like to have been a guest during the event. Also, it turns out that the town of Walnut has very few dining options. We had little choice but to eat at a very limited little diner nearby. (The service was pleasant there, but the food was nothing sopecial.)
7.4 Good
Pros: Excellent location off the freeway, comfortable bed and easy check in.
Cons: Bathroom needed paint and repair. There were holes in the wall, etc.
6.8 Good
Pros: It was easy to get to.
Cons: There was no elevator and I had to carry a 50 lb suitcase up a flight of stairs. The air conditioner made the room very damp. The sink stopper was broken.
7.5 Good
Pros: Good coffee. Comfortable beds.
4.0 Okay
Pros: The Hotel was clean, very friendly staff.
Cons: Had stayed at this hotel three years ago based on a pool, location . We booked a room again last week, and the area with the pool had a fire ( a year ago) and shut down. Very disappointed grandson. I believe that this qualifies for false advertising.
10.0 Excellent

7.0 Good
Pros: location good only about 12 miles from our destination - I am diabetic so the breakfast did not have much I could eat but when I read that it was a continental breakfast I did not expect too much . rooms ok for a very hot very humid weekend.
Cons: again the breakfast was not too good for anyone on a special diet (like diabetic) air conditioning didn't keep up very well but it was an extremely humid and hot weekend!
7.0 Good
Pros: Convenient location!

5.8 Okay
Pros: The room had a refrigerator and microwave. I liked that there was a sink in the bathroom and also outside of the bathroom as that way two people could do hair/makeup at the same time. Easy access to the room.
Cons: The carpet needed shampooing. The inside shower curtain was stained and moldy - I would not even take a shower because it was disgusting. The blanket binding was frayed and was worn. The clock was not plugged in and I could not find an outlet - perhaps I needed to move the bed to find one??? The parking lot was in shambles - potholes everywhere.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Second time staying for our anniversary. We just love this hotel and the city of Harlan! We’ll definitely be back!
Cons: Parking lot is still in need of repair.
6.8 Good
Pros: The room was very clean and spacious
Cons: From the outside it looks like a very sketchy hotel which isn’t how it is inside we almost drove off
7.5 Good
Pros: Pretty good location.
Cons: No keys for the outside doors. I had to go up a flight of stairs to get to my room, after knee surgery. Couldn’t get in the outside door which would have been a good handicapped entrance/exit. Also not close enough to town for pizza delivery!
5.1 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: Had to ask my room to be serviced. Was there 4 nights and only serviced 1 time. Beds are very soft with no support
5.0 Okay
Pros: The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast food variety was good.
Cons: The room temperature was difficult to maintain at a comfortable level. The carpet in the room needed to be vacuumed. The parking lot in the front of the property was broken up and had several uneven levels to it. The parking in the back was tight.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The heater worked
Cons: The service had to call the motel from the lobby to even check in. Was told the room I had reserved was not available. 0 degrees out and wants a 70 year old lady to stand outside to smoke. No!! I reserved a smoking room. The room was not clean. Bits of stuff around and in the sinks. Hair and filth in the shower. Toilet was filthy. Had to go to the front desk to get wash cloths. I cleaned the bathroom before we used it. Carpet had bits of food on it.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Comfortable bed
Cons: Stained carpet & pillow cases and noisy room
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was great
Cons: The beds were quite hard, but we're used to pillow top
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I liked everything
Cons: There's nothing I didn't like
4.3 Okay
Cons: The carpet was dirty. In the middle of the night the smoke alarm started chirping, from a low battery. I tried calling the front desk, no one answered. I walked to the front desk and there was no one there. There was a sign to pick up the phone, on the desk, and dial 1. Finally the woman that checked us in answered. I told her what was going on. She said okay and hung up. A couple minutes later she came out to the desk, in her robe, and said that the maintenance man would be here in 20 minutes. One hour later he arrived. All he did was remove the smoke alarm completely. Also, the parking lit is a total mess. All broke up and large pot holes.
