Room is very small and bed is a full not a queen. But sheets were clean and bathroom was clean. You get what you pay for and this is a $69.00 room. It's not near as bad as the reviews showed. I do have to admit I was scared.

The front desk lost my online reservation and had already paid online before getting there but they still charged my card twice. The rooms are filthy to say the least! When I tried to get my money back for at least they room I was charged for that I did not use was told there was nothing they could do!!... More

I've stayed in a lot of best western hotels but this was by far the worst. No bar or restaurant and a self service breakfast (I've never made my own waffles before!!!). I was there at the weekend and the room was a little noisy with the couple next door getting amorous at around 5am. I would avoid this hotel... More

This hotel is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Rooms are filthy, small. Carpet looks old and nasty. There were no towels in the bathroom at arrival. Asked for towels and they had stains on them. Phone did not work, no clock in the room. Next day left room and asked desk clerk to have room made up.... More

Before you book this Motel, read the Reviews and think twice. It is clear that the Management does not care about operating this Motel at a proper level of service & maintenance. If you can afford a cleaner safer Motel, then stay there. Here is my Score for this so-called "America's Best Value Inn".......... THE GOOD: --Room Rates are lower... More

I thought I'd booked into the one on Lakeshore...It's really unclear which one is which! This one is MILES out of downtown (although it is right next door to a mall of sorts...) and the other reviews pretty much sum it up...dirty. The pillows are all different sizes, the bathroom is a bit ick, the sheets are stained, the towels... More

We got a so called: King size Suite. Look at the pictures of the bathroom ceiling. This explains everything. Mildew is a health risk - do not stay in this hotel. In the Visitor Guide 2014 they advertise this hotel in bold letters as BRAND NEW!
