We were two women travelling home at night from a dog show in a rather nice vehicle. We were afraid to leave our vehicle parked in front of the lodgings. The office is not near the rooms at all and the motel is isolated and near to the highway; perfect for a snatch and grab car theft. Motel was not...

When you see it you question yourself as to why you would want to stay here. Looks like a dump. We needed to find a hotel as we were too tired to continue driving and were were traveling with a dog. They did charge extra for having a pet which we were not informed about when making the reservation. The...

Very spacious room with plenty of outlets and usb charging ports. Staff was very friendly and courteous. Plenty of hot water and clean towels. Very comfortable beds. Breakfast was in a separate building with the front desk, but though simple, was plentiful and restocked during the breakfast hours. Price was reasonable, especially for the area and had easy access to...

The view outside the breakfast area was beautiful and I could tell that someone had taken care of the flowers. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. I was happy to spend 2 days here while we were visiting my boyfriend's son.

The typical price is in the $70's but on this particular weekend there was a motorcycle convention in town and the rate was $133. Not at all worth that price, but the entire city was booked. Better luck next time.

Great central location right off the 90, very close to lots of food choices and shopping. Dated but clean and efficient. If you are just stopping for a night's rest, fine just wouldn't want to spend a week there.

Very happy, we travelled from Maine and booked this room on the fly via this app. We arrived around midnight, reception was quick and friendly. We got a ground floor unit towards end of the units, we have our golden retriever, walking her was very pleasant short walk from front door. The nice surprise was the free contintal breakfast and...

Room smelled of smoke. Comforter smelled of smoke. Minimal non-smoking rooms which were all gone. Assuming that being close to the stadium brings a more rambunctious clientele at times. Breakfast looked so bad I didn't bother. There's a Starbucks close by as malls and other stores and restaurants. Bed was small and hard. WiFi was spotty. Room and bathroom were...

In a odd area of town, but it was near a mall and highway. As two women traveling alone, we were a bit taken back by how remote the rooms were from the office. They placed us in the furthest back corner, I'm assuming because of our dogs. Storage units and truck parking was all that was visible. Bathroom and...
