This a plain but clean motel. Our room had a remodelled bathroom. There was no breakfast which I think is a good thing. There is a Starbucks, Panera and MacDonalds close by. The room met our needs well. The staff was friendly and helpful.

I reserved a room for three nights. I checked out after two nights. I've been told that they are going to charge me for three nights anyway. Beware of these people.

This place smelled like an ash-tray, the roaches scatter when you turn the lights on, and the carpet was very dirty. You can find better for less. The security guard seemed irratable, but he was always present in the parking lot at any time of night. Free donuts and coffee at the check-in desk but after seeing the room I... More
