I've stayed at this hotel a few times. Their rooms look and smell clean. They have a good complimentary breakfast buffet. The only downside is you hear the housekeeping carts rolling outside your window early in the morning, not good if your trying to sleep...More

Absolutely the BEST hot breakfast of any motel that offers FREE breakfast in the price. Offering all usual breakfast items including GRITS, SAUSAGE, EGGS, BISCUITS AND GRAVY, OATMEAL, POTATOES and much more.

Stayed here with a Harrah's reward and it was very comfortable and a good breakfast was included. Beds were very comfortable and rooms were attractive. Older property but pretty well kept. Large pool and attractive lobby. Not fancy but we were pleasantly surprised.

The prime rib on the buffet was to die for! The clams were tender and tasted fresh. I was too wimpy to try the frog legs. The boiled shrimp were mushy. Good selection of desserts. Our server was friendly and a did a great job....More
