Stayed 2 nights. Room was comfortable. The pool area was interesting. There's a bar inside, which is great for adults, not so much for families and there's a wonderful restaurant on site with a bar so it didn't make sense to me.

My family was in town recently for a family wedding and we had two rooms. I was impressed with the cleanliness and size of the rooms. There is restaurant/bar on the premesis and a nice pool so we thought it would be perfect with the grandkids. Unfortunately, both nights at closing time we were awakened by drunk people screaming and... More

I was a bit skeptical about staying due to the Motor Inn due to it bieing located on a busy US Route 1, with a lot of tractor trailer traffic. I am a light sleeper and it doesn't take much noise to keep me awake all night. I was surprised how quiet the room was and comfortable. I was in... More

Disappointed with overall condition of the hotel. Normally we stay at the Holiday Express and expecting same quality. However cleanliness was not evident in the room , as well as the entrance and hallways. Could use some major sprucing up. Also, there was no breakfast buffet as offered not only at the Holiday Express but in other motels. Staff was... More

We came without a reservation and needed a handicap room. The staff went above and beyond to make us comfortable in a room that would work. Very upscale, nicely decorated, comfy beds, clean. It was very quiet even though we were on the front roadside of the building.

I made my reservation over two months in advance for a king size room in their new section. I confirmed it about two weeks ago. Upon arrival I was given a key to a room with two double beds. Upon questioning this I was simply told that the clerk must have made a mistake and they were sorry. No offer... More

Lobby stinks horribly and rooms are not much better. Man at front desk has "never seen any of the rooms". All this for over $100. Go someplace else please. I always check first but the sign says Inn and Suites? They have got to be able to do better than this. kidding.

I was greeted by a very friendly staff that assigned us a room around a bunch of construction workers. While the workers were very polite, my wife wanted a room in a more private area. The staff was very understanding and gave us another room with no problem. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the continental breakfast... More

Surveyed the facility for an upcoming event in town. Appears the facility will meet banquet and lodging needs. Will also be using the pool area for gatherings, luncheon and entertainment for the wives while we are meeting.
