price should be lower right now
I’d only stay again if the price was lower. There are much better options all around the area. It is a great area with lots of restaurants and shopping close by. It’s also close to the Interstate. It’s under construction updating. Just a mess in the halls. Room was ok bed was fine nothing great.

Accomodating
Very nice for the price. Breakfast was rudimentary but free (no breakfast meat for example). I was most impressed that when I forgot my phone chrger, the girl at the desk lent me one from the desk - a smile and no charge. First time in my experience.

Nasty, Nasty, Nasty!
Hotel was nasty, lobby carpet smelled and if it wasn't for the fact that I had been on the road for 18 hours I would of jumped back on the road. Hotel is old, dirty and really needs serious cleaning and renovations. In the room it was hard to get sleep, just was nasty. I slept 5 hours and got up, took a really good shower and got out. Went to check out at 6am, and as I looked for someone at the desk, I found the person in the breakfast line getting food. And let me tell you about the breakfast....when you have to leave a hotel with free breakfast and go to McDonalds, enough said! Terrible.

Long drive . . .good stay.
Overall good stay overnite after six hour drive, with best 'factor' being "overall value". Motel could use some updating in general, although there are good indications some work already in progress. I would stay there again if/when the opportunity presents itself again. Give this place a look.
