We've stayed here before and it was fine but this time was different. The lobby was filthy. There were dead flies everywhere and the milk was left out in the counter from breakfast at 5pm. The room was clean but also had flies in it. The breakfast next morning looked like day old pastries.

I gave this place a good review a couple of years ago but it has gone down hill considerably. No toiletries no coffee in room. The laundry area looked like they were storing the trash from a remodel. i would go somewhere else.

3 1/2 years ago I gave this motel a good review and we've stayed there about twice every 2 months ever since. But, the hotel was sold and has changed managers at least 3 times since the new owners took over. Its not part of a chain anymore. Now it's a dump and we're not going back. We've been patient...

Very pleased with our stay. Friendly check-in, clean rooms and nice breakfast. If was also cheaper than some less desirable hotels in area and pet friendly. The only downside at all was a slower internet. Easy on and off of I 20. We would stay at this hotel again.

Thank Jo H
