Love how the rooms come with an oven, fridge, microwave, kitchen table, and sink! So you don't have to eat out every night if you don't want too. But the restaurants around here have amazing food; at least the ones we ate at! (Ramengers, Mezbaan, and of course Subway). All around great motel with a great price! 10 minute walk... More

Not bad if you just want a place to sleep. Everything worked, and they had parking (though tight and difficult to maneuver). Friendly staff, not the most comfortable bed, but not bad at all. The shower was short, but usable (I'm 5'11"). They had essentially a complete small kitchen in the room, though not quite enough plug-ins for everything. I... More

If you're looking for a place just to sleep for a low price, this isn't a bad place to go. We went to visit a friend and just went back to the hotel to sleep and it was perfect. The underground parking was a little small but I don't have any complaints about this hotel, because we were literally just... More

Dirty,outdated,spooky parking garage. The hotel needs to updates to a modern rooms. The sheet have a yucky smell. Hotel has more potential if the owner remodel all the old rooms. Breakfast was not yucky,plain and cheap. I would never come back even for free.

We booked two rooms here, yet when we arrived they only had a record of one of the rooms. They "found" another room for us, but made me feel like they were doing me a huge favor, even though they certainly weren't full. When she told me the stove wasn't working, I assumed there would be some kind of price... More

They hotel is not Handicap friendly. There is no elevator to haul your luggage around. Don't try to plug/unplug things from the sockets or they will blow the fuse/sockets. The electrical system is outdated and most of all of the Air conditioner's do not work in the motel. We had to move from one room to the other because of... More

We unfortunately didn't know what day we'd be in town so made no reservations. Mistake. Everything we came to was full. We had 5 of us. Got their family suite for $119. Cheap but mostly desperate. No one complained about mattresses. I felt the sheets and towels were clean. I NEVER get onto carpet or showers barefoot since doctor friend... More

I was going to this hotel with my family. I got the hotel and was happy to see that there was no security. Then I asked to see the room before I paid. It was refused. I went to my room and it had this guy sleeping in my bed. WHen I asked him to leave he started grunting. Then... More

DO NOT STAY HERE! Two cars were broken into including ours! They have cameras that the cops said were useless. We didn't notice more than one pile of glass from previous cars being broken into that they just swept up into piles in the parking area until the morning. We were just passing through, moving to Alaska so we had... More
