    A solid choice for a budget location. Clean and modern-looking. Friendly staff. If there were an actual breakfast I would have given 5 stars, but there was only cereal and a few slices of bread in the dining area during breakfast time so we walked across the street to Waffle House.

    Convenient for a one night stop

    Stayed here as an overnight stop. Convenient location. Close to food and shopping. Clean and simple. TV and Wi-Fi worked well. Nice hot shower. Dog friendly is a bonus.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    This is why first impressions don't matter. When we arrived, the place looked a little downscale, but the location was good and the surroundings seemed safe, so we checked in. We then saw the advantages. It's nice to have an outside door when you have pets, vs hauling them through a lobby/elevator/interior hallways to the room. We were also well off the street, so there was very little noise (the loud drunk down the way quieted down after a bit). The room was clean and well-equipped, with a fridge for our cooler contents, good lighting, a comfortable bed and the expected toiletries.

    The location is walking distance to restaurants, none of which are 5-star but do the trick after a long day of driving when you just want a a satisfactory meal at a reasonable price. Gas was convenient, and the next morning we found a great bagel place just across the street that provided the breakfast and coffee needed for yet another long day on the road. The extra surprise was the room-service menu in what looked to be an ice-bucket-and-vending-machine kind of motel. We did not take advantage of this service, so hopefully another reviewer will try it out and rate the experience. In summary, we will stay there again and would recommend it to others. What's not to like about an inexpensive good night's sleep for humans and pets alike?

    Terribly Dirty

    Upon checking in, when my family got to our room we found a pizza box with 3 extremely old slices of pizza still in it. The sink was coated with dirt and large dust bunnies, and we found roaches in the bathroom. For this reason we cannot possibly rate this hotel higher than 1 bone

    The room was dirty and smelly. People banging doors all night. My first and last stay.

    Great location just off Route 95

    Clean and quiet. We were able to walk our dog in a grassy area. Just a few things for breakfast though. But I’m sure that’s due to Covid. Overall a nice place to stay when traveling.

    Clean, good walking areas

    Unexpected $14 upcharge for a pet but still worth it. Rooms newly updated and clean. Everything a traveler could want in a 1 mile radius. Food, gas, retail, etc right off exit. Washers and dryers. Basic breakfast. Will remember this one.
