I recently stayed at the Fireside and what a mistake. A complete misrepresentation on the internet. Let's start with the advertised air conditioned room. There was NO air conditioning. No mistake...just fraud. The motel is more of a residential motel. Although it was steaming hot without air conditioning,I was afraid to leave my windows open for fear the gang members... More

Beware of this property!! Pictures and description on-line and over the phone are nothing like the actual room. Fireplaces do not work and when I asked about the kitchenette only having a sink and stove top knobs removed I was told it was due to fire department code enforcement. Carpet was beyond filthy and little refrigerator smelled so sour that... More

The faux-leather dining room chair was peeling. The small ikea table with elementary-school style chair had a single harsh overhead light that made it feel like an interrogation room. The king-size mattress was the least comfortable "bed"-like horizontal surface I have ever slept on. My wife got up in the middle of the night and slept on the (random) twin... More

I booked a room at this motel based on Trip Advisor ratings and reviews. For the price it was not what I had expected. We, myself and two smallish dogs, had a larger than average but basically a generic motel room. For the price, $218, I expected better. The mattress was covered with plastic that loudly crinkled whenever I sat... More

When booking this room, I was assisted by a very gracious and helpful employee at the front desk. Her name is Shin and her hospitality and courtesy are the primary reasons that I booked this hotel. All customer service representatives could learn from this woman. Hats off to her. Thank you.

If you want 5, 4, or even 3 star amenities, stay away from this place. But, if you want a little atmosphere and adventure, and have a dog, this may be the place for you. Affordable and quiet, your hostess, Shin, will treat you with respect and care. They just painted the place, and the rooms are supposed to be... More

I made a reservation to this place in August for a friends wedding in October and was told the price would be $89. When I arrive after the wedding to check in I'm told they don't have my reservation despite my having a confirmation number and they don't have any rooms available save for a $250 a night 2 bedroom...

We reserved our room with Hotels.com. When we showed up to check in the woman at the front desk did not have our reservation. The only room she had availbe was a suite that cost three times what we had booked. She didn't care that we had the confirmation from Hotels.com and was very rude. Since we knew there were... More
