A memorably awful stay. The floor was sticky, the wash basin stained, the bed was beyond belief and the walls were so thin I could have joined in with the guy in the next room and his "visitor". I have rough camped in Honduran railway stations, on Egyptian docks and in a war torn Beirut refugee camp... apart from having...

The rooms are clean. I did not see anything to alert me to having a bad experience I see with another review. I would definitely go back. For $50.00 it is what you get for much more; and conveniently located.

After paying for our room we proceeded in to find a disgusting mess. Doors without handles, the bathroom barely holding together, leaking sink, no working lights, the ac unit was filled with bugs. After asking for our money back we were treated very poorly and told to leave by the owner and his wife who run the main office. PLEASE...

Disgusting is an understatement . The beds and furnishings looked like they came from the landfill.The room was nasty and their were roaches. After three days i asked for clean towels and they told me since i payed for a week i had to wash my own. There was definitely drug activity going on late at night.. Just horrible .....

The sportsman inn is a very good choice for room fare. The attendant in the office was very nice, and she even offered to show us a room before making a commitment to stay. The price was the cheapest I have found in town by almost half. My wife said she wanted to stay at the comfort inn while checking...

we just stayed there this week while on vacation. The owners were very nice and friendly and helpful. the only bad thing was the cable company came to change the cable and then after a couple hours they switched it back so that we could atleast watch tv. But that wasn't their fault they couldn't have been any nicer to...

This motel was recommended to me by a few residents in Marion (including a very nice gas station attendant), in large part due to it being one of few choices in town. The attendant in the shack seemed nice enough and was kind enough to ask if we would like to see a room before paying $40 for the night....

This isn't the best place I've ever stayed for a night, but at $39.99 a night it beat the $80 all the other hotels were asking for. The pool was clean and served it's purpose well on a hot 95 degree day. My room was simple, but clean. I can see why discerning travelers might not want to stay here,...

We actually checked in...lots of embarrassment now for doing that. The room was non-smoking..but reeked, the two beds were so crowded in that one blocked the closet. We just left, didn't ask for our money back, never unpacked because of the horrible odor. We fled. This place made any other motels look elegant.
