We stayed here because relatives were raving about the breakfast. The rooms here vary from atrocious to fair. Our first room stunk like a public toilet. We returned to the front desk and were given a room that faced the pool area and "is hardly ever rented". It was clean, but very run down and the carpet, while obviously vacuumed,... More

Ok...let me start by Ain before I do anything I start Google reviews first. Well this Google review was absolutely incorrect. Upon arrival I requested to see a room before checking in the receptionist gave me a room key and allowed me to look at the room. I loved it on top of all that you have a full breakfast!!... More

Checked in from NYC. The staff was okay, but the rooms are old, with worn carpet, stained drapes that hardly close, spider webs on the ceiling, the sink and tub seems to be falling apart, loud truck engines overnight, panhandler approached my car (very scary), loud, beer drinking construction workers overnight, and not to mention streetwalkers in the area.

I have never left a review before but felt compelled to do so on this place. The room was so dirty I didn't want to touch anything. The furniture was old and had stains on it. My drapes didn't close completely and this was a ground floor room. The front desk receptionist was very nice. The housekeeping people were very... More

The room was a little dated but overall was great! Housekeeping was great! Breakfast was great! Desk staff was friendly! I truly enjoyed my stay here! I would stay here again! I stayed for 2 weeks while working in town.

Best motel I've ever stayed in. The food was AMAZING. everyone was super extremely nice. The rooms were clean, beds were comfy, and service was five star. The pool is always open, lit heated saltwater and totally clean. I can't say enough about how great this is. Rate is very low also.
