Oh my god. Please let people know your hotel is under major construction and DISCOUNT YOUR RATES accordingly. I paid $162 for a Saturday night in a hotel with exit signs hanging from the ceiling, stained carpets, holes in the walls, hazardous hallway floors and general filth - none of which is visible until after you check in and pay...

The owner is working on renovating the property. Once it is completed it will be a very nice motel. Staying open and completeing the work is a big under taking. The staff was excellent, always helpful. I dealt mainly with Sid and was very impressed. The housekeeping staff is not the best but hopefully that will improve with time.

Where to start, the hotel smelled like mildew and weed, rooms were not even finished being remodeled but still rented out, paid in crash and checked out day early but they wouldn't refund the money the same way I paid, it had to be refunded via credit card and when explained why they had no answer except that's how they...

Gross room. TV remote did not work. Shower only put out BOILING HOT water, so it was completely unusable. Random people knocked on our door at night (to buy/sell drugs??). Looks like they were doing updates to other rooms but obviously didn't get around to ours yet :( Complimentary breakfast was decent.

I booked this motel with the knowledge that it was going thru an update, but what I didn't know that the staff was so short handed. There was no electric in the bathroom. Second day the maid did come in and make the beds, took the soiled towels, but did not restock the bathroom. Without a bath mat I almost... More

I probably shouldn't have expected much from a Super 8 and this certainly lived up to my expectations. Nothing was mentioned upon reserving the room about the hotel being under renovation, shocked when saw windows missing and drywall covering doors. Exposed electrical wiring and filthy. We had a supposedly renovated room, if it was they certainly weren't done. The bedclothes... More

Motel was in the process of remodeling. I stayed in one of the older rooms. It was very dirty, the beds were not comfortable. Bathrooms in BAD need of cleaning. The air conditioner did work well.

When my boyfriend and I arrived here, we noticed there was construction going on in part of the motel. Hotel staff was friendly, attentive and helpful. Jeff, at the front desk, helped to check us in quickly. He was very helpful. We checked into the newly renovated rooms. Was nice but you could smell the new paint. It didn't bother... More
