A pretty decent truckstop with ample parking here. Just off Interstates 291, 91, and 90, this is a safe place to hang out.
The building is older but the cashiers there were VERY nice. All smiles and would help you with anything you might need. They had coffee fresh and ready when I went in both afternoon and 3AM with plenty of flavors of creamers.
I used the washer for some bluejeans, and it costs $2.00 washer and $1.50 for the dryer. Both worked great, and actually got a complete dry on 5 pairs of jeans on the same buck fifty! Not too much of a TV room, but there is one.
There is a 50′s Diner inside with an old jukebox near the salad bar. Even though I did not eat there this time, I walked by the salad bar and everything looked very good and fresh!
Not many truckstops at all in the Rhode Island and Massachusetts area! This one is just off Interstate 495 at exit 14, on the Northside.
The parking for trucks is actually down the block from the truckstop building. You will have to collect your ticket at the gate since it costs $8.00 for 24 hours. No discount for fuel or merchandise in the store like most other pay to park truckstops.
I walked across the field to the building, and they had NO coffee. I don’t mean none made, I mean none to even sell! I asked why and the cashier told me the manager just does not sell any?! Ok, so I look for food, and I see a closed sandwich shop. It was the middle of a Sunday afternoon, and it was closed. I asked what is up with that, and I was told, “We can’t keep it open because we can’t find anybody to work it”. I looked around at the coolers, and there was not even any kind of sandwiches!!
No TV room, no coffee, no food, NOTHING to offer anybody (muchless truckers) anything except fuel. Not impressed. There were no other businesses nearby to get anything either. The parking was on a dirt lot, no lights, and just a port-a-potty at the far end.
Not impressed, and it took $8.00 to sit overnight. Pretty poor business if ya ask me.
This is the only truckstop way up here in Northern Vermont! It is a small place, but does have more than enough parking slots from what I can see. I arrived here yesterday and wanted a cup of coffee. This truckstop does not have any! LOl Actually, if you want coffee, you have to wait in line and buy from Dunkin Donuts! Seriously? So that means I have to pay once at Dunkin, then pay again at the store if I wanted a sandwich or coke. Not good in my book.
The signs in the parking lot say if you buy 100 gallons of diesel fuel, you get a free shower, free parking, and an access card that lets you watch TV and use the laundry! Yikes, so what if I just wanted to park here for the night? Yes, you can, but you don’t get an access card that lets you enjoy the other stuff downstairs!
The place is clean, and the folks are nice, but the place is not run very trucker friendly. Perfect example, they have just HALF a shelf of truck supplies. It was -3 last night, and they had no AntiGel to sell, they do not even carry it!
Overall, decent place to stop, but they need work on offering more for the truckers, and making coffee available (without waiting in line at the donut shop)……….OH, BTW, this Dunkin Donuts shop does not even make Lemon filled donuts anymore! Can you believe that?
Located just West of Lincoln in Nebraska on Interstate 80, sits the New Shoemaker Ambest Truckstop. The old one sits across the street. There is plenty of parking, decent food, and even a repair shop if needed.
Tons of cool old trucking and automotive items scattered around the store for you to look at if you have nothing to do lol
This truckstop is the only place in town to spend the night.
It has a dirt parking lot, and overflow parking next door, and all through the night, it was less than half full. The store is very basic, but it does have some food and coffee, so you won’t starve.
Good, friendly folks and the place is open 24/7 for you late night drivers. It is located just as you roll into town at 412 and 59 at the stoplight right across the street from the Cherokee Casino.
This was the first time we have been to this truckstop since they rebuilt it. We have been to the old one and it was super cramped for space! Nobody could even move around the fuel islands except one truck at a time.
This new one has more than ample space to run around the fuel islands, park, and even do uturns of you so chose LOL. :) The parking lot was very clean and of course everything looked fresh and new.
The store inside had plenty of food and coffee and all the shelves were stocked. The one thing that would have been better was if they had more cashiers at the counters! There were two lines that had at least 15 people in them.but it seems most Pilot/Flying J’s have a lack of cashiers at the busy places. The lot lizards were pretty active lastnight, but then it was a friday night. Only one bothered to knock on my door and pretty much beg me to let her in the truck. The rest just advertised on the CB radio.
I LOVE the name of this truckstop and the little town next to it: Rib Mountain! Unique for sure.
The truckstop itself is kinda obscure since the only clue it is there is an old BP sign with no working lights. No fuel price listed, and it is all bent up. When you drive around the corner, it is tucked away in the back and the parking lot and building exterior looks like the whole place is closed down!
Once inside the place, it actually is pretty nice. They have big hallways and good clean restrooms. A few truck supplies, but they do offer good food and coffee. Customer service was good as well. Perhaps they should spend money on the outside parking lot and signage to attract more customers.
I would stop here again. Noboy bothered me at all, but parking is limited to about 30 trucks or so.
This is one of the few places in North Dakota for a truckstop since it is many miles in between cities!
On the Eastern edge of town, you will always find this truckstop pretty packed. The coffee is good with tons of creamers. Want to shop a little? Lots of local souvenirs in stock as well as jackets, leather goods, truck supplies, etc. They were lacking in the hot food section though with virtually nothing on the racks. Guess I got there too late!
I toook a shower there, and it only cost $5.00, not the usual $12 at the chain truckstops. The shower was clean, but it had broken knobs and looked like it sure could use an update or remodel.
Overall, not too bad of a place. Very friendly folks and cashiers.
I have seen billboards for this truckstop all over the country that state: “Jubitz – Just 2,000 miles away”. We managed to finally get a parking spot the other day because it was jam packed! It has a Blue Beacon Truckwash, motel, diner, and plenty of other stuff for you to do in your offtime.
Good service, excellent food, security patrolling the parking lot areas. Nice place to be. They even have a few Shore Power spots if you need the electricity.
We spent the afternoon here while waiting for our midnight delivery. and a big storm rolled in!
I did manage to visit the buffet after the rain quit and i was pretty surprised. Excellent salad, everything looked fresh and good. Tons of choices of veggies, not just one or two like most salad bars nowadays. The whole buffet looked good and I really liked it.
Plenty of parking, nice roomy hallways and arcade room. The store itself is older and pretty small, but you can find what you want if you look hard enough. The coffee area had NO sugar, no sweenter, and no creamer. They ran out of everything!
