My room smelled of stale smoke. My sons room had to be changed because it smelled like a kitty litter box. When we changed his room the room's drapes had holes in them. My room had a bathroom sink that was cracked. Towels were fluffy and white.. Not updated in many years.

We had to stay here for work. The plan was to stay here a few weeks but my wife could only handle 5 days. They did have a full set of tv channels, the weekly rate is really affordable, and easy access to the freeway are all pluses. There are people who live there permanently because of the price and...

The rooms were clean but there are a number of folks living there on week to week rentals. As a woman traveling alone it was not a safe motel to stay at. I have traveled extensively for the past 7 years throughout the country and this particular motel is one of the worst I have seen. Do not stop or... More

This place was dirty, out dated, sheets didn't look clean, pool wasn't open (it was green), carpets didn't look like you'd want to go barefoot. We had to go to a funeral, so we called while at the viewing and cancelled the rooms - they wouldn't refund for the first night. Manager was not cooperative, wouldn't give us the name... More

I hate it when places get trashed unnessarily. It makes me wonder about the people writing the reviews. I like nice places. I've stayed lots of them. No one would say this is one...however, it also isn't the terrible place many of these reviews make it sound like. It's older, it could some cosmetic upkeep...but there were no holes in... More

I stayed at the Kensington Inn after a wedding and had a very nice experience. The manager, chris, was very friendly and even talked me into a hot tub room. Price was perfect. My room was clean, the beds were comfortable and I had no problems at all. Would definitely recommend to friends.

This is an older property, but the service is good and its located right off the expressway. There are lots of dining options near by as well. They do have micro fridge and refrigerators units available- so if you are staying for a couple of days that would be a great option.
