Honestly, I am not a picky hotel/motel goer. I realize you need to expect to receive what you pay for. I used to clean motel rooms so I can overlook certain things and I can appreciate work of the housekeepers. The manager of this establishment was very rude to my friends. He called them a rude name and told them... More

Went from the Sheraton Grand to here due to a delayed travel plan and economics. The place was very clean, comfortable (100 degree days) air conditioning great. Location convenient to downtown, plenty of places to eat and a local market within walking distance. Not your average motel/Inn. Breakfast too every morning. Great Value. Had I known this prior to th... More

I booked a room here 4 MONTHS in advance of a conference. Two weeks before the conference, I received an email saying the hotel had been overbooked and my reservation had been cancelled. My reservation was a day shorter than most other conference attendee's, and I'm guessing they cancelled my reservation when they received another for more days. In looking... More

I had a reservation for this hotel in a couple of weeks, and received the following email (yes, it was all in capital letters and they didn't even sign their name at the bottom): "WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU THAT THE HOTEL HAS EXPERIENCED AN OVERBOOKING FOR YOUR STAY AND WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE YOU" There was...

I got this through Priceline's name your own price bidding on two stars for three nights at USD 42 plus fees, no refunds. Last year, I won a higher rated two and a half star hotel for less in a slightly better area. We only stayed the first night, my spouse booked a much nicer hotel at more than three... More

This is a family run place, about 20 minutes to downtown and a short walk from the trolley. My room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Good service from staff. Breakfast is worth a miss even though it is free - there are other options a short walk away. All in all, this is good value and worth considering if you... More

There is nothing "fancy" about this place. It's nice enough, decent enough, for when you need a place to stay, and you are on a budget. No snack vending machine. The "continental" breakfast, is choice of toast, per-packaged danish, cold cereal.

Definitely, there are some things left to be desired about this place. The lighting is stark, the carpet is dirty, smudges on the walls, etc. The "continental breakfast" looked so unappetizing that I just skipped it, and I'm usually a sucker for free food. This is no Holiday Inn. But then you're not paying Holiday Inn prices either. In fact,... More
