I stayed here for work and the property seems to be taking the years a bit hard. Combine that with the ever present highway construction outside the hotel with the giant billboard promoting a local strip club right out the front doors, it just doesn't look/feel like a sharp place to stay. The people working there are friendly and nice,... More

I have stayed in hundreds of hotels over many parts of the world, experiencing many different hotel designs in many different locations.

The rooms are filthy! The doors in the hall are dirty! My linens were stained and towels in room were ripped with stains. We had to put our trash cans in the hall so someone would empty them! The tub in our room ran a constant stream of water we could hear at night. This place was disgusting!

It was a pretty nice motel but is located close to the train tracks so it was noisier than what we prefer. It is also not in the best section of town. The staff was very courteous and friendly. The breakfast was a typical HI style.
