The room I checked into was very dirty, although I was moved to a different room after I mentioned the issues. However my new room was still very cramped. Service was not good. Overall it was my worst experience, and I've seen bad before.

Horrible! There was BLOOD ON THE PILLOW CASE and the owner only switched pillow cases. The pillows were super lumpy and old.. when we woke up in the morning the fitted sheet had come off the bed on my fiances side and there was a LARGE AREA OF DRIED BLOOD DIRECTLY UNDER WHERE HE WAS SLEEPING! DISGUSTING.

Recently stayed here! Blood splattered on the comforter, floor was filthy, mattress was old and hard, and the room atmosphere just wreaks of prostitution! I suspect owners are trying to submit positive reviews...DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU WANT A REPUTABLE AND CLEAN HOTEL!

We research online and decided to try this motel. SURPRISES: Simple and clean rooms. No damp smell and well serviced. Free Wi-fi! Location is really good too. Easy drive onto freeways and attractions. I would recommend this motel if you are after a clean and well priced room.

Never, Ever! At check in (around midnight), the sign in the window said 'no drugs or prostitution'... Great, first clue. To get to the stairs up to the rooms, you have to walk thru a parking lot which was inhabited by multiple gatherings of some vulgar people... After being approached for money and someone asking if I wanted to "party",... More

we were never allowed in the room because the horrible owner/manager of the place wouldn't let us check in. the room was booked online through a booking agency, so he already had his money. he yelled and screamed at us and said we were disrespectful upon checking in. he threatened to call the police on us and then chased us...

My family and I came up here for a concert and for a little shopping. We only paid $65 so I wasn't expecting the Hilton. Let's start with the office.
