The owner said he didn't know if he was paid yet (from getaroom.com) He was very rude to me, until my husband walked up wanting to know what was taking so long. The motel is an extended stay place. It is very dirty! Roaches, my door... More

Booked this place with my mom. Arrived at night, place was dark. Rang a bell and spent a pretty penny on the room. Went to the room, and there was a homeless man standing IN FRONT OF OUR ROOM GETTING DRESSED. The room seemed nice enough, the beds were comfortable but the sliding glass door that led outside was broken,... More

I stayed on 13 October 2012. The desk was friendly and allowed us to check in early. The room was by no means lavish but it was clean, comfortable and not as loud as I would have expected considering it's proximity to I-8. There is an IHOP just out the front door. The Hotel boasts an outdoor pool. The bed... More
