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

I have been staying in this motel for 5 months and its been hell. The "free continental breakfast" was given maybe once a month. 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

This motel was by far the dirtiest, most disgusting room I have ever stayed in. The mattreses were full of stains and very wore out. Wallpaper was peeling off the walls. At one point my sock stuck to the carpet which was also full of stains and had not been cleaned in a very long time. There was a bad... More

If all you need is a place to sleep with basic services and internet choose this motel. The manager tries his best to meet your wishes. The other motel is twice the price. Only drawbacks were no continental breakfast as indicated, no pool (didn't need one), and it isn't the best and newest.

While the manager/owner may have been a nice, cordial person - the entire hotel is run down and in desperate need of an update. The rooms are basic, but far from clean! We had to ask for clean blankets, sheets AND pillow cases (ick!!!). We had to ASK for towels, and there are no toiletries offered. The "continental" breakfast was... More
