Wanna know how clean your motel room is? Check behind the bathroom door. Disgusting! Beds were comfortable, but after seeing the bathroom floor I was disappointed. Motel is walking distance from the casino. Nice location but needs to be cleaned better.

Very clean rooms. Cute doggies. Loved it. Very nice people that runs the motel I'd stay there anytime. Friendly people close to everything. Loved it. Loved seeing Russ. He's such a delightful little guy.

I stayed there for the first time last night. Rooms are clean and I was happy with everything. But I really want to mention how nice and the owner was. I had an incident where I needed to grab hold of the total rack in the bathroom. Unfortunately I caused it to be pulled from the wall, which caused some...

good clean place, friendly staff, but rock hard matress and pillows that seem to dissapear when you lay your head on them. Hotel very close to the casino can walk to the parking lot and take a shuttle to the casino.

Bed cover was sooo nasty, laid it on the floor. Left Suitcases in the car.. NON SMOKING but nicotine covered everything and it reeked of smoke. Appears to be a flop house.....Looked like a few squatters live there... WHen we went to ask for our money back NO ONE came to the front desk....

I checked in early, which was not a problem for the friendly and accommodating front desk manager. The room was quite large and beautifully appointed with modern furniture and fixtures. The suite contained a...

The People were nice . The room was clean. The beds were the worst ever. There was a 3 foot round 4 inch deep depression in the middle of one bed. The other bed though more flat was the cheapest mattress money could buy you felt every spring and the wire on the edge. Also you have to pay for...

We booked this motel for 3 nights. The only problem we had was parking. We had to park our car across the lot in the grass because the room next to us took our space to park one of their three cars. It made packing our car very inconvenient.. I told the manager that they should have one spot in...

I was told about this small family owned resturant from a friend. I loved it, nothing fancy, rooms standard, but it felt like home. Great views, walk to the Casino in minutes. Staff is the best, They were so kind to my dog. I will stay again soon.!!
