My 2 month stay there was excellent. The room was comfortable and clean and the owner was a super nice guy. Air conditioner was ice cold and the pool was very clean. Most rooms had been renovated and if you needed anything, all you had to do was ask. I would stay there anytime and recommend it to anyone who... More

We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms which were very comfortable. The atmosphere at the bar was very nice as well. Friendly staff. Kids had a great time in the pool. The motel is getting the NFL sunday ticket package in their bar which will be a great atmosphere on sundays.

Very disappointed in our stay. It was only for one night but the room was so ghetto that it felt like we were there much longer. The room smelled horrible, the carpet was stained and dirty looking, the shower drain wasn't working properly and took 30 minutes to drain out the water. The entire experience was extremely disappointing. The room... More

I never comment, but where to start? I also had experienced the receiving of other people's credit card and driver's license information on the back of my motel map and they never could print me out a receipt. Both completely unacceptable! The lack of simple maintenance was apparent all over the property. Cigarette butts everywhere. Actually the smell of cigarette... More

We stayed here for only one night, and won't be back. I'm not normally a "complainer," and generally find the good in a given place. Unfortunately, this place didn't have any good points. After reading previous reviews, we didn't want to stay here, but all the other hotels in the area were booked. One of our biggest concerns was a... More

I cannot even begin to capture in words how truly horrible our experience was in this hotel. We were booked for two nights and the only positive thing I can say is that they didn't charge us for the second night...when we cancelled after staying the 1st night!
