"Weekend Getaway"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 15, 2014

My family met here for a weekend get together, the hotel was right off the highway. There were places to eat in walking distance and a short drive in town. Our rooms were clean, the beds comfortable and the pool was a nice addition. I would definitely stay here again.

"Decent hotel, needs some updating"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 14, 2014

This hotel is yet another reason I wish there were 3.5 star ratings. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't QUITE 4 stars either. The staff that helped us at check in was very helpful. Check in was quick and within 10 minutes, we were in our room. (We were a group - three rooms total). The problem came when we arrived at our room - it reeked of cigarette smoke (and this is a smoke free motel). We were given a new room without any issues and the second room had no smoke smell. The rooms - slightly dated. Probably my biggest issue/area of concern was the gaps around the doors. They ranged from slight gaps that let in light to large enough gaps you could see the locking mechanisms of the door when standing outside. We definitely used our dead bolts! The beds were comfortable, but for the life of me I cannot figure out why each bed only had three pillows. The rooms themselves were a little banged up - a nick in the furniture, older looking shower curtain, a fingernail polish stain in the bathroom - but nothing huge. Rooms had a microwave and fridge, which was really nice. Wi-fi available (which seems to be an industry standard these days), and room service (which we did not use). The hotel - again, decent. The pool was very, very nice, although they did run out of towels while we were there. Continental breakfast was offered - fruit, waffles, etc. If continental breakfast isn't your thing, there is a Cracker Barrel within walking distance. The only real negative thing I can say is that as we were checking out, two of us were sitting at a table in the lobby using our cell phones and one of the staff decided to start vacuuming. The vacuum was so loud, we had to end our calls (or leave the area, but quite frankly we were exhausted). Not only did she vacuum, she vacuumed right under our feet. No "excuse me", no "do you mind if I vacuum here?", nothing. All in all, a decent hotel, but nothing spectacular. With some updating and repairs, it could definitely be a four star rating.

"Needs some upgrading"

This was not a terrible motel, but I would likely not stay there again. We waited quite a long time to check-in. My travelling companion was given a key to a room that someone was occupying and had to go back to the desk to be assigned another room. I supposedly had the executive suite. Well, hmmm. The door to the room was open when I went there--wide open. The room itself was run-down. The door to the room had a gap between it and the frame and looked like it had been jimmied in the past. My traveling companion's room and mine both had the heat set such that it was about 80 degrees when we arrived--we did not understand why staff had not turned it down as the weather had changed.. The air conditioning was noisy and kicked in and out all night. Breakfast was included in the price and was adequate.

"Nice pool!"

The pool was the highlight of our stay in this hotel. The bathroom was tiny and decor was outdated. We had two double beds that were comfortable, but obviously small; most hotels offer queen sized beds for the same price.

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in and I recomend it highly. I was there to relax and I did just that. Great pool/hot tub. Excellent accomodations. The room was so clean, King size bed, and five pillows was awesome! Exceptional staff, all shifts . I will be returning soon.
