This is a beat down dated motel. You would think with three stars it would be nicer but no also the area is not very good. Very shady characters here. The Motel staff seem to really try but you are better off paying the extra $10.

I read a lot of negative reviews before booking, and I also saw comments from management on how they were making renovations and improvements and thought I would give the place a try. The grounds are well manicured and the parking lot looks like it was recently repaved and lined. The staff as very friendly and our request for extra... More

We stayed here because I had a coupon and got a good weekly rate. The room was outdated and carpet needed a good washing (our feet got dirty walking on it). TV channel selection was poor. We were close to the office for safety, however this was also right next to the office staff outdoor smoking area, where they liked... More

This hotel is old and in disrepair. We got a room that looked like it had never been cleaned, there were crusty white stains on the TV and carpet immediately below it. We found toenail clippings on the bathroom floor. The lobby smells dank and moldy. When we were checking in, a gentleman walked up and asked if the hotel... More

We have been a loyal patron of this hotel for a weekend once a month for 2 years. While different issues have come up over the time the overall stay was well worth the price. However while the excellent staff is American, the new owner is not and in simple terms is trying to reduce costs by not maintaining the... More

This place is disgusting. My mattress was covered in stains on the side. How nasty is a Place that you have stains on the side of a mattress. We had a family emergency and needed somewhere to stay at the last minute but I would have rather slept in my car.

We regret that your mattress was not in good condition. Many of our rooms have new mattresses, and we are currently in the process of replacing the remaining mattresses. We would have gladly moved you to a room with new mattresses, and we hope that you will consider trying us again, as we are in the process of many renovations... More
