I must admit this motel was a mistake for me, I expected some thing else..The property is not well kept, the building has few lights indicating it even exsists. Almost impossible to find in the dark unless you know its there. First time drove right by it,had too call to find it...Coffee,I do not consider Continental breakfast, and doors to... More

We got a room here, as it was located along the highway & we were unfamiliar with the roads & didn't want to travel after dark. Raj at the front desk was very friendly & accommodating, otherwise I would have given a one star rating. We were traveling with our little dog & they gave us a room close to... More

I stayed for the weekend for a wedding and after reading the bad reviews, I had low expectations. My room was clean, the sheets and bathroom was clean, new shower curtain too. Raj was amazing and went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable. I have stayed in five star hotels and have gotten five star service... More

It is filthy inside and out. I actually bought an inflatable mattress and plastic paint throw and slept on the floor. The mattresses were full of stains, and had some type of bugs running around. It reeks of stale smoke. I only stayed one night out of necessity because the other hotel was full. Raj was very nice and accommodating,... More

The motel smells like stale smoke, but smoking is supposedly not allowed, we had small animals and were not treated well with them (we kept them quiet and they're potty trained), the sheets made us both itch (no allergies), we had to ASK for towels as there were none in the room, the property was very unkempt. We came into... More

I like the place, but im not a picky person who judges by the paint job, Raj is a good host and what do you expect for the price? I like his style and courteous nature rather than stuck up people at the motel in canbridge that wanted a 100 a night. it did the trick had a good sleep... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever seen in my life. First we booked our room on Priceline.com. When we arrived to the motel the first thing you notice are the moldy windows and the window units sagging out of the walls. Upon further inspection you realize the entire place is in disrepair. However you forget all of those... More

The rooms are dirty and maid service is NOT offered daily you're lucky to get maid service once a week and its upon asking. The manager is very nosy (me & my fiance have mail coming... More
