It seemed like there were not your average price motels to be found. But for the money our room was clean and comfortable. Nice location...easy on and off from I-80. The receptionist was helpful. We'll probably stay there again.

This place is fine for what we paid and gave us a good night's sleep in a clean room. It's not in a very attractive area, but it seemed safe enough. We drove to get dinner. I didn't notice any eateries nearby. The staff we met were very friendly and efficient. The breakfast was pretty basic, but if you just... More

I'm giving this five stars because it succeeds at what it is - a bare bones facility catering t those who need a place to sleep. The folks who worked there were all pleasant, the room and beds were clean, and while the bathroom needed fixing up, it was nevertheless clean as well. If you're looking for a resort hotel,... More

We called for a reservation from about 100 miles away and had no issues. Gen was very helpful and remembered us when we arrived. The building looks like it's an old warehouse, and the room walls are cinder block. Location is also in kind of an industrial area, but with some other stuff nearby. Definitely not fancy, but we had... More

Clean rooms and sheets, but very dated in the early 70's style. The exterior of the building is original in a grey block style. I stayed two times (one week apart). First stay they messed up my reservations (requested 2 beds) and got one. Second time was fine. The breakfast was lame, and skipped it. No coffee makers in rooms.... More

This was a nice place for the money. The room was clean, the beds were decent, the towels were fluffy. We looked at the meager breakfast and skipped it, but there's a coffee shop next door. We would stay there again.

The good news is that the room was clean and spacious with newer carpeting and a comfortable bed. It could benefit from some maintenance repairs (some peeling paint, old bathtub hardware) but overall the room and hotel is in good condition. I appreciated the fridge and microwave in the room. The linens were kinda old, but seemed clean. The woman... More
