We stayed here for a weekend & thought it was a nice little hotel. Desk staff were courteous and helpful. Bed was comfortable & breakfast was good. Good location for exploring events and restaurants in the area. I'd happily stay here again.

Very nice service, but insistently mentioned the no smoking policy several times, while peering at us as if to be certain we were telling the truth. My husband and I deplore smoking, so this was amusing...until we got to our room. It absolutely reeked of old cigarettes, and something else I couldn't quite identify. Too chilly out to open a...

We stayed here just overnight, the place was clean and we felt very safe. There was myself, hubby and two kids. Breakfast was good and the breakfast room was immaculate. You got quite a few options for breakfast. However it was a little pricey coming in at 135.00 for the night.

My husband and I stayed at this motel for two nights, we have a motorcycle and it was rainy. The owner offered to take us wherever needed and check in was honestly the friendliest check in we have ever experienced. Breakfast had a nice selection and was well supplied. Room was clean and beds were comfortable, but what sold us...

Stayed here twice in the last month. Price is really good for the area. Rooms are clean and bed is comfortable. We did the breakfast once and it is on the slim side. However if watching your budget it serves the purpose. There is a Perkins next door if you want a full breakfast. We would stay here again. If...

This is an old style motel that they've tried to update. It also has smoking rooms which nearly sent us over the edge at 10:00 when someone nearby was smoking. The breakfast is weak and poor selections. They do have a waffle maker but it was so crusted with the last person's waffle we didn't want to try to get...
