This is a 1950s hotel that has been remodeled sometime in the past. The first glance was okay--if quite overpriced. However, the flaws became obvious before long. Mold in the shower and mildew in the grouting, the shower head falling off the wall, wires visible below the bar light in the bathroom, capped pipes in the extra-large 'closet' sticking out... More

We stayed here after arriving from a midnight flight. We had to call the desk but they checked us in quickly. The hotel room itself is small but very clean and neat. There were only 2 pillows on the bed, which is fine, but if you're a pillow lover like I am then you may want to bring one. We... More

Questioned me on why and were very hesitant to let me use only 2 extra blankets and pillows. Even wanted to only give me the pillows without a pillowcase. Thank goodness they finally let me have some because my children needed them I order to sleep (they knew I had children when I checked in). The remote was broken. It... More

The bed was comfortable. The room was clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was decent. Front desk kept the belongings that I have left behind. Would definitely stay with them again.

After a long day of travel I finally arrived at the hotel only to be told I could not checkin. I would have to wait 15 minutes until the manager returned. So I sit in my rental car waiting for the manager when to my surprise the clerk who could not check me in tells me to move my car.... More

First they were very rude checking us in. The rooms were run down. The beds are super hard like bricks. The shower only put out hot water and it wouldnt drain. I went to the office for help. They gave me a plunger. The plunger didnt work only brought up guck. I asked for another room. They were resistant to... More

It was late in the day we were simply looking for a place to rest. (A relative was at a hospital) We arrived at the hotel late but the gentleman opened the lobby to welcome us. The hotel was easy to find and had free parking. The hotel reminded us of the 50's vintage 2-story motel...but obviously renovated recently. The... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced, clean place, close to the airport for a one night stay. This place fit the bill. It's a motel, 10 minutes to airport (no airport shuttle), free parking, clean with very basic amenities provided. The stay included breakfast which we did not partake of. Helpful desk staff, helped us print out our boarding... More

We stayed at this place in June because the airline sent us there (and paid for the room) after a missed connection. We got there at 2:00am and were told checkout is at 11:00. We asked if we could check out a little later, like at noon, but they would not negotiate. The room was clean but it could definitely... More
