I booked a room at the Davis Motel for each end of my recent road trip. It is halfway along the route I travel to Virginia and cuts my driving time to two manageable shifts. I won't restate all the specifics that other reviewers mention; the descriptions all match my impressions of the property. The place reminds me very much...

We are always trilled when a guests says they have returned in a review. To us that is the most trustworthy posted review. Thanks for the encouraging and kindhearted comments.

With lots of nearby locations to dine and just south of exit 232 - Ohio Turnpike. The Davis has a handy location. In addition has a convenient registration too with no credit card or ID necessary or check-in or out time limitations. Making Davis Motel in North Lima, Ohio - One Great Stop-Over!

Many of our reviewers enjoy our clean rooms and various amenities like free bagged ice and fresh already brewed coffee , etc. Although they still also appreciate our many conveniences most do not include some of them in their reviews like you did. Thanks for taking the time and for staying. All part of being a "Five Star Hospitality" facility.

Clean and nicely renovated with new carpet and cozy beds plus our rooms smelled fresh and had a microwave/fridge. Also upon check-in received a goodie bag containing cookies, water, extra shampoo and more. We lost our toiletries so the desk gave us complimentary toothbrushes with a big tube of paste, razor and shaving cream. Plus a great new BBQ full...

Thanks, most of our recent verified web reviews reflect your same outstanding review. Also it makes our staff feel rewarded when a kindhearted reviewer notices our recent refurbishing like new beds, carpet, painting and more. All part of being a “5 Star Hospitality” facility. “Innkepping.” with you in mind , Barry Davis Owner/Mgr Davis Motel

Reviewed 25 March 2017 via mobile

To rate this a 5 is just plain crazy. This is a very old motel in need of a MAJOR overhaul. The family that runs this place is friendly enough but that dosen't excuse the condition of this property. Mattresses are shot, drains plugged, carpets filthy, pillows stained, outside concrete is breaking up, needs paint, stained ceilings, no complimentary items...

Thank Driverjoe
Barry D, Owner at Davis Motel, responded to this review

Since 95 out of 129 “Five” stars reviewers cannot be crazy. We feel you have gotten us confused with a similar named motel in LIMA, Ohio. Our facility is located in NORTH Lima, Ohio - near Youngstown. This mistake has happened before.

Stayed recently and had a great experience! Friendly and attentive staff. Clean rooms and quiet. Checkout was fast. Restaurants within a few minutes from the establishment. Recommend if you are looking for a clean room with minimal amenities.

Thanks for the five star review and the kind words. Our guests save over half by us not offering the costly extravagant frills and superfluous décor and exterior facades of the high priced chains. With that said, we still able offer more amenities than the budget franchises like:: Microwaves, Fridges, Free Fast & No hassling with passwords Wi-Fi, Over 60...

It's safe, secure, clean inexpensive, and the employees are sincerely personable in a way that you don't regularly see at major hotel chains. Great conversations, great people, and a local treasure in the Youngstown area.

At first glance, this shabby old school motel has stay away written all over it. And at $39 a night, how good can it be? Then when you check in and one of the über friendly owners says " do you want a beer, or a soft drink or a water?". These guys seemed to actually be glad I was...
