Like others, myself and my girlfriend stayed here due to the reasonable rating on this very site; how it has got that is a mystery. Bulletproof glass in the reception area, nothing in the room worked, and a genuinely frightening night with drug dealers knocking on the door, aggressive groups of people shouting in the car park all night, police...

Ok. We don't mind budget motels but prior to staying here we had only two 'must haves': must be clean and if we have paid for a service it must work. The Capri Motel room was clean, we can and should credit them that. Lights didn't work, it was a very smelly smoking room and there was a strange leak... More

We stayed here because it had 3.5 stars on expedia. There was what looked and smelled like dried pee in and all over the shower. There were razor blade marks all over the bathroom sink, probably from drug useres. It was in what my husband called a "ghetto adjacent" area, but closer to just being in a bad part of... More

At first we were a little taken aback by the bulletproof glass at the office but once in the room we could have been anywhere. We did deadbolt the door though! It was a little disappointing that there were no dining options in walking distance of the hotel. we did find a very satisfactory frozen lasagne at Aldi across the... More

Myself and two of my buddies were passing through on our way to Colorado. On a whim my pal booked a room cause it was cheap and easy to get to. When we pulled and the first things we noticed were the bullet proof glass and a gate that secures the property. No way we could have stayed there, Never... More

I've read some of the reviews of this place and I would like to say that I have stayed in motels in every state except North Dakota and on the motel level it is in my top 10. Rooms were very clean and the staff gave me whatever I asked for and I am no one special, tell you what... More

Ive never bothered to review a hotel before. The price was cheap, the rooms were decent. The area the hotel is located in is straight up scary. Ive stayed in many a rundown hotel\motel on our way to concerts. It doesnt bother me to go low rent. But i would never ever take my wife and or kids to this... More

Only needed the motel for an overnight stay while at a concert. On arrival the area doesn't look too safe with several youths etc hanging around the outside of the Motel (there's an ALDI supermarket adjacent). The reception on arrival is dirty and looks like someone's garage with unkempt sofa, broken vending machine etc. The glass security screen adds to... More

I'm gonna tell you honestly it doesn't look like much, but the rooms were well worth it. The rating is based on the price and the space of the room, not based on the Hilton Hotel. If you ask for a kitchenette you get two rooms for the price of one, plus a full size refrigerator, and a stovetop, and... More

I was surprised to see our room contained a good sized mini fridge, TV, blowdryer, and a microwave. It's obviously not the Holiday Inn, but it was clean and definitely worth the price. I'd stay there again for sure. The staff was friendly (family owned/operated) and the place had character with super signage!
