I'm giving this 4/5 because most budget motels aren't up to the level of Centro. If this were a moderate to premium hotel, I sure wouldn't give a rating this high. Strangely though, this place a few amenities better than hotels I've visited. The highlights: Free AND dependable WiFi - Plush Bathrobes - a solid front desk - one of... More

This motel is a great budget option if you don't need a full service hotel. While it doesn't look like much from the street when you are inside the room you feel like you are inside a W Hotel room. The decor is very modern, the bed is awesome and the shower is great. The room was very clean, the... More

They call it a boutique motel, but it's an average older motel with inside renovations. The room is comfortable and is not such bad value for your money.. Breakfast food was poorly presented, with a small eating area. Staff need to be better trained.

Motel is a mess. It looks amazing on first glance, but then it ends. The outer walkways of the motel smell of urine at all times. The staff were quite cold and not at all accommodating or friendly. I felt as if i was in another country. The room? Sad. The king-size bed was extremely worn out and my back... More

motel is dumpy and tired. They call it a boutique hotel, but thats a stretch. Staff are disinterested. Hard to get them to look up from their phones. Walls and ceilings are paper thin and we were woken every morning and evening by the upstairs guests just moving around. Washrooms are so tiny, you literally have to come out of... More

We got this motel on a package deal. From out side it looks like some old motel but room were very recently renovated. It was cheap and worth the value. Rooms were clean, Bed was comfy, Free parking, Break fast is provided but not Hot stuff(Cereals, coffee, nutrition bars, fruits, muffins and cookies). Pretty close to downtown. I definitely recommend... More

Overall very good value; if you have the flexibility to stay outside of the downtown core, you can stretch your dollar here and still get a good night's rest. As others have noted, the exterior is fairly modest but they have made a real effort to upgrade the rooms. Beds are very comfortable and the linens are crisp white cotton... More

We had a king bed in a large room with dresser and desk. Washroom and bathroom were separate and luxuriously appointed. The plush terry cloth robes are for real (and really comfy after a shower). The shower was huge and modern, as was the rest of the room. Quality amenities are provided. Continental breakfast had a good and varied choice... More

When we first drove up to the motel, we were wondering if we had not made a mistake in ordering this place- the area, very plain looking motel, even the office didn't make any impression of the quality. But... open the door to your room, it was completely different. Luxurious looking, with personal bathrobes, wooden floors, up-to-date coffee maker, free... More

Great spot for a short stint if you have your own car. The location is a little bit out of downtown. The rooms were a good size and extremely clean. Being on a main road means there is a little bit of traffic noise at night, but definitely not a major issue. There's a few good restaurants nearby and a... More
