"value for sure"
"Customer service was great. Don't be fooled by the pictures, it is newly renovated, although some of the carpentry work is a little shoddy it is a very nice, economical place to lay your head for the night!"

"a good nights sleep after a late drive"
"it was not meant to be a 5 star hotel that we needed for the night, but very glad we chose to stay here for the night, the bed was way better then expected, soft and almost as good as one that i would by for my home bedroom...if you're needing a good sleep for a reasonable price i would say go for this hotel / motel"
