True story

The hotel location was next to a gas station, which is locked down like a prison after 10pm. This hotel was very cheap..and was very cramped, old, covered in spider webs and had plenty of dirt and bugs on the window pane. Oh and don't forget the blood stains on the white sheets, along with hair in the bed.

Good place for a single person.

Good three-day for my hunting trip. Breakfast was lacking, but a great Denny's Diner nearby.

Good place for a single for one or two nights.

Breakfast was a disappointment, but everything was clean, shower good, and temperature control worked well. Staff was friendly and helpful. Experienced a power outage for the lights at the head of the bed.
