We couldn't find another hotel at the time. We stayed only 1 night. The bed was poor quality and very uncomfortable. There is ac and a coffee maker. I would not recommend this location unless you really need to. Price was not that good. On the positive side, there is a small fresh market a block away and a family... More

I checked in after dark and was wary of going back out when I left at 3:00 the next morning. The bathroom was so small that it's a good thing I'm not claustrophobic.

I booked this for a business stay, the pictures are far from accurate. The room was disgusting, the bed was broken. There were police cars outside. I booked for employees and rebooked somewhere else, this place is that bad. The room offered was horrible and the manager refused to refund the stay.

The location is hidden, and face the highway. Honestly, the room is clean, bed is comfortable. However, my wife found a strand of hair inside "new" towel and the other towel...is with some dirty spots. We are two customers but the shampoo is barely sufficient. The breakfast is average. So, it is just a place you can only have a... More
