5/5 – The Manager, Jonathon is doing a great job. Grounds, painting and improvements. I was there today for the midweek reception. He is a gracious host who cares about people. He takes time from his busy schedule to make you feel at home.

Also found a great Italian eat in/ take out across the street walking distance, great pizza and cheese steaks. Rooms were very clean, the rooms are quite even when loaded with little league players.

4/10 – The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The facility itself is old and needs work. In my first room the toilet did not flush properly. I was given another room where things worked, but I just felt like the whole place needed a really deep cleaning. Breakfast was the typical, but did include make you own waffles.

5/5 – Awesome comfortable hotel! And dog friendly! Enjoyed the free breakfast too.

Nathalie on
8/10 – Overall the stay was good. Nice beds, clean room, friendly service. However, the walls are literally paper thin so even if the people in the next room are just talking normally, it is very loud when you are trying to sleep. Same in the hallways. Will not stay there again only for that reason. If I can’t sleep, then the hotel room is pointless.

Kathy B. on Tripadvisor
4/5 – Nice hotel right off I95. Clean, quiet, no smells, very nice staff and good breakfast choices. Very convenient and close to gas and fast food options too. We use this hotel for future pit stops when travelling I95.

Bad Review:

Wendy on
4/10 – We had reserved a king room about a month in advance, but on arrival was told it was not available & had to accept a queen room. No difference in price. Room was ok, but air condition unit was very noisy, and there was a bad smell that kept coming from bathroom-not sure if there was a sewer issue…also found a couple live bugs crawling in shower. Disappointing stay after a long 10 hour drive.

Rooms were average and typical for a hotel. Pool was a little small but we were the only ones using it so not too bad.

4/5 –  The staff was very friendly I loved the bathroom on the non-smoking side I should add the indoor the-outdoor part is not bad but the indoor is where it is at beds were extra soft and their pillows were like clouds I woke up with not a pain in my body and feeling very rested I would love to go back ?

6/10 – Kinda maintained- but need to more effort to clean and manage better with positive engaging attitude, when I checked in the front lady did not mentioned anything about breakfast, and after I found out that they did not have elevator – I inquired if there were any first floor availability and she looked and said no- when I asked about the restaurant near by her response was the same- no but you can look at the brochure and just pointed away.
