We just stopped for the night, very close to the interstate we needed to be on. Nice and clean rooms. Check in and out very easy and quick. Staff was very nice. Loved the breakfast. We would recommend this hotel.

This is a very nice clean hotel. It is conveniently located near shopping and restaurants just off the highway. Staying here definitely made us feel we were in Crimson tide territory with the elephants in front of the motel.

Checked into a room which smelled so bad no way anyone could have stayed in it. Moldy. Went to front desk to switch room. They obliged and second room didn't smell but just not clean. Never complained about a room before
