For a no frills hotel, we were very impressed with the quality, cleanliness, and comfort of room. The bed was great and we had a great night sleep. In all of our travels the complimentary breakfast was one of the poorest. The coffee was out, and you had the choice of white bread, or frozen waffle. We ended up finding...

No, I did not have high expectations of this place. I knew it was a seedy hotel off a highway in the woods. However, we had a pretty abhorrent experience. We arrived at 4 pm on a Saturday, which is check-in time. We waited at an empty front desk for a good 15 minutes before being greeted with a "[Expletive!]...

The room had somewhat of a strange smell. It's a non-smoking room but smells vaguely like somebody smoked in it recently. The queen bed is quite comfortable, with a foam pad on it. TV channel selection is naturally poor, but that's to be expected based on the area. Free WiFi with 20 Mbps Up/Down when I tested. Air conditioner was...

The only reason I booked this hot was because it was the only one in the are and it had a hot tub! The images of the hotel were definitely worth what they paid the photographer because in person this place looks like a dump. We arrived later in the evening.we asked to have the pool hours extended by 15...

Clerk was very friendly. They keep their heaters off so the room is cold when you enter, but I am good with energy conscious businesses. My first room the heater was not working great so they switched my room and the second room heated up just fine. The room was clean which is most important to me. The breakfast is...

Nice place but be careful cause site shows different room then what you get. Site needs to be straightened out be sure to have pictures of room when you rent. Owner was a little hard to deal with at first but did end up giving us a good deal. Its an older place but they are fixing it up nicely!...

We were traveling from Minnesota to Arizona and the gal at the gas station recommended this Hotel. It was late at night and the gentleman that checked us in was AWESOME! The room was clean and price was great. We had a great breakfast the next morning. All the staff was very friendly.

Our room was updated (new paint, carpet, bedding, flat screen TV) and really clean. The room even had a microwave & decent size refrigerator. They provided a breakfast and the pool area was nice. This was a decent place to stay at a good price. I would stay here again and recommend it if someone needed a hotel for a...

I was hesitant to stay here based on reviews but we just needed a place to sleep for the night and the price was right. Our room was spotless and appeared to be freshly painted with new carpet and bedding. We have stayed in way more expensive hotels that were not nearly as clean as our room was here. The...

We arrived at about seven or eight p.m., and upon our arrival we checked in at the desk, and proceeded to see our rooms. My fiance and I entered our room, and we instantly smelled paint fumes. Some "new" smells were expected, since the hotel is being redone. The smell was so strong that we felt it would be appropriate...
