Extremely disappointed with the gentlemen managing/running the motel in the evenings. I had a trip planned to Joplin and needed a 2 bed room for the evening and given the circumstances in Joplin at the time (tornado and many without housing as well as the volunteers in the area helping clean up) rooms that weren't a arm and a leg were scarce. I prefer non-chain establishments and gave them a call early in the day and the lady said she would hold a room, but they didn't take reservation...view mores. I told them the expected arrival time figured I was all set. When I arrive I tell the gentlemen I had called earlier and needed a 2 bed room. He fumbled around on the desk stating he was not aware of any reservation or promise while I keep asking if they had any vacancies. He said they were not full, so I ask the obvious question of well then does it really matter? I'd like two bed room please. He asked if I smoked, and I said yes, but my traveling companion doesn't so I prefer non-smoking, but will take whatever they have available but obviously had no intention of smoking in a non-smoking room. He said he couldn't give me a room as I had said I was a smoker and he was forbidden from giving me a room for the night because of that. The whole situation was not handled in a professional manner and he seemed to be disinterested in my business from the start and offered no sort of apology. I had such high hopes for a nice older motel with such a cool sign and location. Oh well, their loss and thank you for wasting my time.view lessProvided by Citysearch

I stayed here just the other night and found it nice and charming I like the old fashion feel of the place and how the owners are trying to keep it in tack.The lady at the desk who checked me in was nice i do plan on staying there again. Do wish that the tv had remotes and were bigger but not a huge deal breaker. My room was huge and clean.Share Review
This is a landmark hotel at $31.99 a night for a single person plus taxes. Our sales team has spent many nights at this motel. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms are clean and in good repair. Look for the big red, white, and blue sign for a good night's sleep at a great price.
It's just north of I-44 and close to Sam's Club..
This place is disgusting, it should be torn down. Rodents, trash and bodily fluids on the floor! Yuck! Just drive on by, I know it looks like an icon from the by gone days but it should be by gone. The staff is rude and horrible on top of all the grossness!Provided by Citysearch
