2/10 Poor

This hotel was DESTROYED by a TORNADO. We were unable to stay at the hotel as it is gone. Expedia is still selling rooms?!? We had to find a different hotel at midnight! Expedia's response? It will take ten days to decide IF they will refund us for the room that we CLEARLY didn't stay in?!?

Although an older motel, it has been updated and is in nice condition. No in-room coffee is a downer--there is a coffee shop across the street however.

4/10 Fair

The rooms were very clean! The only issue is that they knew ahead of time in our booking that we needed a room for 5. We got to the motel and I sent my significant other to ask for extra towels and washcloths for all of us. We then were threatened to be kicked out due to having 5 people in the room due to fire safety. It also appears that the people there live in the motel. We were woken up multiple times in the night due to streaming or vehiclea being revved. We will not be returning.
