This motel has virtually no security and is home to some seedy characters. The management is unfriendly and unapologetic of the unhygienic and run down conditions of the rooms. My neighbor is a young female and the front desk checked an older man into the same room and gave him a key. I had a homeless man wander into my... More

I realize that this was a budget friendly hotel, but i still paid over $100 and the room had dirty carpets and dirty walls. It was had to sleep at night cause the room was so bright from the lights outside the main door and noise from the traffic outside.

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.
