6,7 Good
Pros: The bed was fine. Room was clean. Hot breakfast and coffee was good.
Cons: The place looks a little run down- marks/chips in hallway paint and in the room, beat up chair and desk in lobby. Loud air conditioner in room.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: This hotel was a little off the beaten path but was a great value. He front desk clerk was wonderful and check in was the easiest I have ever had. Room was large and comfortable.
Cons: We didn’t have any complaints.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Comfy bed. Clean room.
Cons: My only concern was the breakfast person had a hard time staying caught up. Food items were empty and the trash was overflowing. Just think with the softball tournament in town, and a full hotel, maybe there should be more than one person trying to do everything.
9,2 Excellent
Cons: we were unable to apply our AAA discount due to booking on line. we have been told to book on line because it is beneficial but that is not the case.
6,7 Good
Cons: No staff at front reception when checking in. There was a line of people wanting to check in.
5,4 Okay
Pros: Location was convenient
Cons: Our shower was broken, and our bed was FULL of hair. It was painfully obvious that the sheets hadn’t been changed after the previous guest. They ended up putting us in a different room, which meant we had to pack up all of our belongings at midnight. When we checked out they did apologize and said they’d do something about it. Well, they ended up taking off $14. Yes, $14! What a joke. Not even worth the time it took for them to make the price adjustment. And the woman working the counter mentioned we were about the THIRD guests that had dirty bedsheets. Ew!

Pros: The staff were so helpful; William was exceptionally thoughtful and professional, we were most appreciative. Mindful that this is a budget hotel, the overall experience met our expectations.

Overall we were satisfied and certainly all the staff are the reason we’d stay again.

Pros: Location was good
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Affordable
Cons: Breakfast was disappointing
8,8 Excellent
Pros: The front desk person at night was great. She was checking me in, the phone was ringing, and she had a creepy old man staring at her as though staring would get her to ignore me and get him checked in instead, but she kept at her job no prob. Rooms are spacious, shower was hot, and everything was clean.
Cons: The Google directions from booking.com were abysmal. I was directed to a residential street in the middle of town after a couple of miles on a dark road. After I pulled over and got other directions, things went much better. The beds are pretty soft, so not too easy on the back.
3,8 Mediocre
Pros: Location was acceptable because the price was low.
Cons: From the hall way to the room, everything reeked of cigarette smoke! Either the cleaning people have no sense of smell, or they just don't care. I was literally sick to my stomach from breathing the air in that room. I'll gladly pay more and get a motel that doesn't smell like that. I'm not sure how you get away with listing them as "non smoking" rooms.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Clean and updated.
Cons: Location is a little out of the way.

Pros: Room was fairly clean.
Cons: Room smelled musty, hair on 1 pillow, breakfast ended before 9.
5,4 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was limited, but okay.
Cons: No elevator at all. No ice nor anything else on the 2nd floor. Not a good situation for tired travelers at the end of a long day. Security was not good: no outside doors would lock. In fact, the rear door would not even close.
3,0 Mediocre
Pros: Super 8 Not so Great We stayed two nights, our room was clean but small, the hair drier didn’t work, we informed the management and they were not able to replace the drier but allowed us to go to a different room and use the drier in that room and then return back to our room. That evening, we returned back to our room and the hair drier still was not replaced, we spoke to management again and they told us that it was on order. About a half an hour later, management replaced the drier. A prudent manager would have replaced the hair drier the first time we asked. The facial bar of soap was the smallest bar that we ever seen, there was one bottle of shampoo but no conditioner or body lotion. The grill on the air conditioner was broken out and the digital temperature display was not functioning properly, which made it difficult to reach a desirable room temperature in a timely manner. The window screen was half pulled out of the frame and was torn and there was a wooden dowel rod laying in the track of the window giving the appearance that the room had been broken into once. The recliner was well worn to the point that the vinyl on the head rest area was cracked in a spider web pattern. On Sunday morning, at 9 am, I was in the shower, housecleaning knocked on the door and wanted to clean our room. My wife told them to come back later and they requested a time to return and stated that they start cleaning at 9 am. This exact same scenario happened again on Monday morning, housecleaning knocking on our at 9 am. There was no “do not disturb” sign. The breakfast was very limited, there was only one waffle maker and biscuits and gravy, there were no scrambled eggs, sausage or potatoes. The breakfast bar was not replenished when items were depleted, we only seen one bagel on the tray each morning, the cream cheese bowel was empty, the apple juice was empty on Sunday morning and the orange juice was empty on Monday morning. The room was clean but not a value nor did the ame
7,5 Good
Pros: Nice location. Easy to get to. No problem with late check in.
Cons: TV turned on but couldn’t get any channels. Decided that it was too late at night to worry about it. Breakfast was disappointing for someone that can’t have carbs. No eggs, fresh or hard boiled.

7,9 Good
Pros: The room was clean. The location was ok. Having direct TV was a different plus.
Cons: The room really reeked of smoke. Once the air conditioner was turned on the smell went away. No supplies for coffee other than coffee packets, no hair conditioner. The breakfast could have been better. Some of the food was old.
