Excellent motel, excellent service, very clean and very reasonable rates, I cannot rate this motel highly enough. The staff were very professional and extremely helpful they really made my three 3 month stay a real pleasure. Peter Ruddy (the Englishman)

Remodeling the place was such a good idea. Loved how everything changed. Breakfast is good. Great area. Amazing service. Would go back anytime needed. :) plasma TV , a refrigerator in the room is great. Not all places have that . Amazing Chanel's just as if I was at home.

its taken me way too long to write this review. I stay here about 2 times a month. Great price for the quality. Amazingly beautiful concierge service (Mahi) and others. they have a full bathroom with a place to enjoy the hottub jets. the refrigerator in the room is always a big plus because of the many food and drink...

Staff is always very friendly and accommodating. All the recent changes they have made are great. It's nice they didn't raise their prices even after remodeling. It's a lot cleaner now that they changed the staff. The ladies working now are wonderful!!! Will continue to keep coming back.

I frequently stay at this hotel, due to proximity of personal issues, and after the new ownership has taken, over things have slowly gotten better. They have done a few renovations but need to continue doing more. Hopefully they won't get complacent and continue the renovations. The staff is the Brightside to staying here, They all are always real friendly... More

Did not feel safe around the hotel. Always people hanging around the entrance in the parking lot. Saw patrol cars cruise the parking lot at night. Rickety elevator. Not a convenient location for highway access. Fairly standard room. Poor breakfast selection (cereal, stale donuts and fake orange juice).

The hotel is nice but you have to pay extra for fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The breakfast is nothing fancy at all cereal and donuts from Walmart. The rooms are nice but you don't shampoo or conditioner. They only provide soap.

I didn't expect glamour. My boyfriend and I were looking for a decent hotel last minute for Valentine's day. We were having dinner and drinks in the area and decided to stay here. The room we had was okay. Nothing to write home about. The cleanliness factor of this hotel is abysmal. Stains, burn holes, and dust cover the rooms.... More

Not a clean place, and everything is outdated. When we got there they didn't even know we had a reservation. They had to look through their stack of papers to find our reservation. The room was freezing. Took a long time to heat it up. The sink was broken.

Stayed here because it was dirt cheap and less than a mile from a client meeting. Reading the reviews I expected to find the typical worn out old hotel. Instead, I found an old hotel with renovated rooms. The TV worked well and had all of the channels. The wifi worked well. The bed was comfortable with what I would... More
