Convenient location in the Northwest. Older property, but clean and well maintened. The bed is quite comfortable. Staff is very friendly and it is a good overall value. It would be nice if they would get with the times a little and upgrade their TV's, but that is the only real shortfall.

Though the room was clean and location perfect, it was just too hot. 30 degrees when we arrived! Air conditioning and an open window only brought it down to 24 degrees...and it is winter here! The heat plus the extreme noise from the air conditioning made for a pretty much sleepless night. We think the boiler room (or something like... More

I stay here quite often, not because of its ambiance, but because of its location and price. It is reasonable priced and reasonably clean; however, it is old and really could stand a face lift especially in the smoking rooms, but they do allow smoking, one of the few hotels/motels around that still do.

My main complaint is that the hotel thermostat couldn't be turned-up. The room was too cold and couldn't take the cover off to turn it up and the... More

My room was clean and provided the basics: bed, desk, wifi, hangers, full bath etc. The motel is right on a busy highway. Because it is a motel there are very bright lights in the exterior corridors which curtains don't block out. Very loud, fighting guests on my floor were allowed to continue making noise for over 2 hrs, not... More

Walked in looking for a room last minute, was greeted by a completely disinterested front desk worker who informed us of the rates and then asked plainly how we would be paying. One of the few hotels who cannot take a cash or debit deposit on a room, so make sure you have plenty of space on your CC. I... More

We needed a hotel for New Year's Eve. Going to an all night party and just needed accomodations for 4. It was just a standard room but the beds were great, excellent hot water and pressure and the sink and mirror separate from the tub and toilet. Also, 2 of us are smokers (got smoking room) but each room has... More
