Happily, this hotel had a room available when we stopped in the middle of a downpour looking for a refuge. The room was very large & comfortable, with a Keurig machine, microwave & fridge, plus disposable plates, a microwave-friendly pot, dishwashing liquid, etc. The staff was great, breakfast was lavish. The entire facility was immaculate. The only reason for 4... More

Great staff and decent hotel. The breakfast was good and the hotel was very clean. I was mostly disappointed with the beds. We have stayed at many HI express locations. Our bed was kind of lumpy, very noisy and it sank in the middle. Bothe beds in our room had issues. Time to replace!

This was the first motel I used taking two dogs on a very long road trip. The ladies at the desk were very accommodating and helpful. The room was clean and well stocked. Great safe area to walk the dogs. Breakfast was good. Hot was hot and cold was cold. USA paper was provided.
