Great stay, friendly and professional. Free breakfast and right off the highway. The price I could not beat! Booked on Expedia and stayed for a great price. Basic but more then enough amenities. Would recommend for business travelers or traveling construction workers.

This place is beyond DISGUSTING. OLD. Out dated. Dirty. We get our first room and walk in the comforter has a big cigarette burn in it, the bed skirt had a big white stain on it. When we asked for new bedding they gave us a different room. This room had no bed shirts and the chair has a big...

Nothing special. Dated. But fine for a place to sleep. Dated decor. But the room had a microwave and fridge. Front desk was very helpful when we had a problem with our room key. The night attendant was very gracious and spent considerable time with us

The price was fine at 55.99 plus $6.72 tax with the discount. the furnishings in the rooms were very dated and everything looked very worn and tired. The sheets were so thin and even the pillowcase had a large tear. The worst was...

While in town watching trains and visiting the Dunes, my brother and I stayed here for one night needing somewhere cheap to stay. At only 58 dollars with tax you can't go wrong.

Once again, a clean, comfortable room at a great price. The location is the best, the customer service is awesome, and if you just need a place to sleep, this is it! I stay here several times a year and keep coming back.

I stay here several times a year. It has always been clean and comfortable. They have some complimentary breakfast items, but don't fill up since the Northside Diner is nearby. The customer service is great and you can't beat the location and price!

Worst hotel stay of my life. Carpeting was dirty and worn. Halls were not air conditioned--stuffy and smelly. Three lamps in the room, one was broken and another had a bulb missing. A/C (Very noisy) had two functional settings: "High" and "Off". Shower had such low pressure that I had to bend at the waist to get my hair wet....
