Have stayed in this place several times on quick business trips to town and have to say it is time for some major updates, cleaning and renovations. Loud are close to the highway and seems like each time I have stayed I have been woken up by emergency vehicles close by at all hours of the night. Seems like a... More

You get what you pay for. This isn't a super nice hotel but for the price, you'll get a big, clean, and cool room, a decent bed, plenty of parking, and a small breakfast. Aesthetically it leaves some things to be desired, but for a long weekend stay, we found the place just fine (especially the Waffle House practically in... More

I needed a room that was close to my daughters apartment for Family Weekend at the college. I needed a bed and this hotel fit the bill.

The room had a strong mold smell. I am seriously considering calling the health department. Breathing in mold all night cannot be healthy. Prostitutes in the lobby, as confirmed by the hotel staff. Shady characters in the parking lot. Dirty towels. Do I need to go on. You'd be better off sleeping in your car. Avoid at all costs.

Hotel staff was friendly and pleasant. The room accommodation was as expected for this type of hotel. The motel really needs to be upgraded to be equal with similar type of motels of this kind. Needs to be painted and refurbished to attract higher type guests.

Basic but not inviting. This is in a section of Columbia with several aging, lower end motels that all seem to be similar (Red Roof is much like this). It's fine especially if you are a 70s fan. Pool is small but clean water.

We stayed in the hotel in Columbia Missouri in the beginning of Sept. The room was nice the lady who worked the front desk was awesome. Checkin was easy the only thing that would have been helpful was a mini fridge and a channel guide for the tv. The guy who worked the front desk in the morning was rude
