Hotels . com messed up our reservation and they were helpful in getting it straightened out. Great pool! Kids enjoyed it! 4 feet deep at deepest point. Inside access to rooms. Comfy rooms. Great value for the cost. Recommend!

Staff is super nice, rooms were very clean, and they were very willing to fix any issues that may have arisen during our stay! :) It has a really nice heated indoor pool that the kids really enjoyed. I was very satisfied with our weekend trip to visit my mother and definitely would stay again!

If you're looking for a place to stay while in town or on business then this is a great place to stay. Reviews & ratings are one thing, but for what you pay it's almost like you get a bit more than what you asked for.

Friendly staff. Room was very clean, bed was very comfortable. Motel was quiet, had well rested sleep. Breakfast had a verity of bagels, waffle maker, toast and selection of cereals and fresh coffee and juices. It is close to highway and many shops and good restaurants near by. Pleasurable stay. Would recommend this motel for comfortable stay.

Well, it's affordable. It has a pool and fitness center. The price was right but I would not stay again. My room was not very clean and everything was falling apart. The hotel looks like it has recently been redone but with very cheap updates, so not the best quality. You could see where things were already damaged and likely...
