Way over priced... charged 185. For a king bed. Room is only a 85.00 room In my opinion. No elevator so have to carry luggage upstairs. Dated room. Don't stay there. Staff wasn't friendly. Kids running down halls at night.

We stayed when the place across the street raised their price by $100 when we arrived. The motel is old but the bathroom had been updated. The room was sparsely furnished and not well lit. The bed and bedding were comfortable. The room seemed a little damp but the area had rain for a week so.... There were several younger... More

We have stayed for about a month this time. It was to save money. The police, and hookers are plenty. We overlooked the mess and nasty but getting called at night because day shift made an error was the last straw. Even if you are on a tight budget, don't stay here, its dangerous enough, service is crap.

Once in my room I found that the lamp didn't work and maintenance brought me a light bulb within 5 minutes. I overslept the next morning only... More

I stayed in this hotel for about four weeks and that will tell you that it must be pretty good. Got great service, and it was in a very convenient location for me. The staff is very helpful and the parking is excellent.

No shampoo, no conditioner... Just one bar of soup. Bolt lock was broke, seemed like a bunch of hotel guests lived there.. Was a very trashy place... Glad we just slept and left. Seemed like a bad area of town. Office was in a little hut, with bullet proof glass and security. Scary. Wouldn't reccomend for famililys. Rooms had cigarette... More

The cleaning staff was definitely poor. We stayed for three nights and a piece of feces in the bottom of the toilet bowl was never cleaned, the floor was vacuumed once and the longer we stayed, the fewer towels we received. The bed linens were not changed at all and the sheets were never tucked in under the mattress. One... More
