The people that are there all the time must live there. They are fighting in the Parking lot and doing drug deals. Running up and down the upstairs balcony so much, that plaster started falling on us down below. This goes on all night. The key card gas to be reprogrammed every few hours. The garbage around the parking lot... More

Stayed here to be relatively close to the big mall. For that it was little too far, but the motel itself was decent and clean. Can't find any major fault with it, worth the price we paid. Many eateries nearby.

I was very tired and the kids had spilled a drink on the bed, so my wife asked for some new sheets and the manager at night, a older... More

My stay was shortened by one day with the hotel but I was pretty impressed. Looked like new bed, new TV, new sink and instead of carpet they had brand NEW wood flooring :). The room was the perfect size for just me. If your traveling by yourself and don't want two queen beds in your room you can ask... More

My room was clean and the bed comfortable. The area was quiet. All I wanted was the basics, a place to sleep and to watch some tv and that is what I got. No complaints. All motels have skimpy towels, if you don't like them, then bring your own.

The room is very nice but it doesn't have a refrigerator in every room, it would be very nice for the traveler who would be staying more than one day. The only drawback other than no refrigerator is that I paid for the faster of the wireless network but can't get on. I've called the help desk and the only... More

While I was glad that we got a room with a fridge, it had an old cigarette smoke mixed with musty smell. We were next to the ice machine on the main floor right behind the pool. It seemed like everyone needed ice at 2am. No hotel shampoo, no hair dryer, thin sheets, stained linens - we stayed as we... More
