Examine your room before paying. Some rooms smell like piss, others smell like a cat's litterbox. WiFi didn't seem to work. TV'S are tube ones, but seem to work fine...unless it's storming out - then you won't get reception. Beds are below average in comfort. Minifridge and microwave was clean. The room I had was clean. Housekeeping is super friendly.... More

The room is okay, exactly what I expected for the price . Nothing extra like shampoo or even An extra roll of toilet paper. The towels seem slightly dingy though. The beds are clean and the tv and air work. So everything is acceptable for the price except The front desk women Angelica definitely needs an attitude adjustment. Maybe she's... More

Fridge and microwave were nice and worked. Older TV also worked. Climate control worked. Room smelled musty, paint and wood flaking. General state of... More

I still can't believe I wasted a night of my life in this dump. I booked through a site so I was stuck staying for the night. The Hotel was a dump, and the room was a dump. For example the bathroom had a curtain covered with mold. The smoke alarm was broken.There was a TV that you can buy... More

We were duped by the current posted reviews! This is a "rent by the hour " place. The paint is coming off of the door above main entrance, a large stain was on the carpet in the lobby. We did not even use the shower! How about NO hair dryer in the room, in the year 2015? This place should... More

It was very clean and always service from staff no matter the.time or issue was taken care of with good response. Pool and laundry area was always clean and well maintained I stayed there for about 15weeks and didnt have any problems from staff or guests. Would recommend to any friends or fellow employees if mine.

I would definitely refer anyone looking for a warm friendly atmosphere and worry free stay to the best motel. I was really impressed with the staff and the peacefulness I also liked the pool always crystal clear and exceptionally well maintained. Location is close to shopping Centers and many nice restaurants actually many within walking distance.
