I stayed there on 02/18/2015. I ask if many people "lived " there and yes, some couples/family's live there. At $34 a night I expected some issues but the place was clean, quiet and the staff friendly. The bed was more comfortable than the hotel I stayed at last week in Orlando at twice the price. I was given a... More

Upon arrival to the express in, we were incredibly skeptical about the quality, cleanliness, and our own safety. It is difficult to describe what we actually saw in order to paint you a proper picture of what the word disgusting truly embodies. What hit us first, was the smell of something clearly dead for weeks or food rotting that may... More

the front Desk LADY is super NICE, but the room has no light, tissues, filthy bathroom, AC sound is strange, Had to switch the room to connect internet. Stay if you don,t find place elsewhere. I am just no pleased with the over all room Quality. However it was convenient and close to 75.

Found this hotel from one of the coupon books. We tried to check the room out before we stayed. But there was a lamp out, so we used our flashlight, doing the best we could, as our main concern was bed bugs. My husband could tell it was worn out, and not as clean as it could be, but we... More

The room we were in was non-smoking but for this whole week we had to air out our room cause it smelled like smoke. There is no breakfast, the Juice is NASTY along with the coffee. There is no...

Stopped here because of an add in the freeway travel coupon books. The hotel was only $36.99 or $44 with tax. The place is quite run down and the roaches come out at night. The breakfast is terrible. No juice or tea, just coffee.

The room smelled very weird, the beds were supposed to be queen beds, and ended up only being full beds. There were small bugs in the bathtub, and a cockroach on the door. Never again. You get what you pay for.
