My mom and I stayed here recently after a long road trip. It was just a stop for us to sleep before our journey home. I am a Choice Rewards member and I used my points for a free night. The folks at the front desk were friendly and the beds were comfortable. The only problem I had with this...

We were traveling and it was late and needed a place to rest our heads. This is your basic hotel, no frills, just a place to sleep. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. Breakfast is very basic,waffles,fruit and box donuts. Great place for the price. Staff was very friendly.

My wife and I were on a trip back from Ohio and decided to give this place a try, BIG MISTAKE!! and if we weren't so tired from traveling we would've sought another place to stay. If I were the choice hotel group I would drop this place off the list! DISGUSTING!!

Wow, I ignored the reviews and shouldn't have. First room I was in was exactly what I didn't pay for. It had two beds: one was way too soft, but the other had a sort-of firm mattress. The TV was an old tube. Toilet kept running. The door frame and lock weren't secure. There was a small centipede crawling up...

If you need to use a tablet after hours like I do than definitely pass this place up! "Yeah we have wifi." What they don't tell you is that they only have wifi in the lobby. The rooms aren't wired for wifi and the owner from what I was told isn't up with technology and has no plans to do...

We stayed here for one night on our way to Nashville. I was able to book a free night with Choice Rewards points. Even though it was free, it was not good. The desk clerk, Chris, was very friendly and helpful. We had been booked into a smoking room even though I requested non-smoking, and he changed it quickly. The...

Dear eagle watcher, Please accept our sincere apology regarding the bathroom issues the tub non slip mat and the hair on the bath room floor. We just had all of our carpets cleaned so that may be why the carpet seemed damp and we are currently in the process of replacing all the tub mats in the entire hotel so...

I stay in hotels 300 + nights yearly and this hotel is one I'm glad to warn you about. The staff is friendly but after that checkin, watch out.
