Don't even know where to start. Typical foreigner owned property. NOT taken care of. All of the staff acted like you were am inconvenience to them. Computer in lobby so slow that it was of NO use at all. Bed hard, carpet nasty. Was there on business and had paperwork faxed. When I went to pick it up they said... More

Don't even waste your time or money! We were wanting a room for one night as we were just passing through. We were better off to just keep driving. Three room changes, toilets didn't work ,and no heat in any of them. Very very unhappy an will never come back or recommend this place!

I needed a room to stay as my work was keeping me in the area, but I did not have time to get a hotel through work, so I booked this hotel as a failsafe. When I got there, I was greeted by the manager who went through my options of rooms for the night. Very friendly gentleman. He placed... More

Doors were unlocked in the back at all times made my family a little uncomfortable. Man in the front gave us a discount to choose their hotel as opposed to the one across the street but once we got the room he hit us with hidden fees but by then it was too late to go across the street. Charged... More

We were very impressed with this mid range priced motel that had recently been renovated. The accessable room was very clean and had a lot of room, even with a king sized bed, so that she could easily navigate in and out of the toilet with her wheel chair. More impressive was the demeanor of the clerk who checked in... More

This is the little budget motel that does. A little thin in the carpets but clean and a very helpful staff. Bedding is firm, pillows average. A/C puts out like a champ. Shower is hot and the massage head really works. Put in a wake up call and it came through on time. Only one negative - it is close... More

Overall it was a comfortable stay. This hotel is broken up into 2 styles. There is the 3-story enclosed hotel, then there are a couple 2-story exterior motel buildings in the back. I stayed in one of the motel buildings and wondered the whole time, if the rooms in the hotel were nicer. Over 3 days, there were 2 points... More
