The moment I arrived the front desk staff had a warm welcome and the room was very clean with great service. I had been driving for hours and just wanted to get some rest. It was perfect no hassles very affordable. Definetly would pop in there again

I am sure their monthly rates are quite competitive but if your intended stay isn't that long, keep on moving. Price was almost $80 and it was indescribably awful. Pulled into parking lot thinking.. oh we can afford this place and its just a place to crash. Went to a show at the culture room thinking this location is great...... More

Stayed here 2/6/11 after a cruise. We had a night to sleep before flying out. The place is a dive, not sure how else to summarize it.

My skin is still crawling from having spent a night in this hole. Bugs in the bed, rotted box spring, blood stained sheets, sticky floors, bad, bad smell. I feel sorry for anyone who stays here. Dumpiest of the dumps. STAY AWAY!

This hotel is really bad, the sheets were plenty of holes, the room where we stayed was infested with bugs and had a terrible smell.

Stayed one night. Room was ok, fairly clean. Location not bad, on N Federal Hwy. Saw a few rough looking women hanging out there. Overall, ok for a night's stay and for the price.
