Low price is nice, but no breakfast buffet ironing board, iron. Also there wasn't enough towels or wash clothes in the room. I would recommend this for a quick stay on a road trip, but that's about it.

We stayed in room 247 my friend in 133. There was daylight all around our door, sink held up by banister rail, room stunk, and best of all we pulled the sheets back AFTER we had slept on it and there was a blood stain that looked like someone had been murdered there. So gross!! My friends room had a... More

If bullet proof glass at the front desk is any indication of the motel. Two police cars and a patty wagon in the parking lot. No refund policy. 1 star is being generous. The place is a crack motel. One tooth prostitute in the parking lot. The place should be shut down. Black mold in the shower. Let this review... More

We stopped, paid our money, went to the room, and OMG! You cannot get your money back so don't even try. This place is supposedly under surveillance at all times for drug deals and WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE!

This place looked great in the main office, the staff was nice and friendly! Even gave me a discount because my family and I got into town so late and needed a hotel...however, when we got into our room we were really disappointed. Everything was dirty, the carpet in the room was sticky, the toilet made this loud noise the... More

It sure isn't fancy, but it wasn't a bad experience. The neighborhood and the clientele leave a lot to be desired, but the fact that we got a clean bed with a working shower and AC for what I paid was a miracle. I booked 2 nights on Travelocity using a coupon and ended up paying $74 with tax. That's... More

We stayed at the at this hotel for a night and had no issues at all. The room was clean and the desk clerk (Becky) was great ! Offered to let us see the room before we paid .... Wondering if all I have read since we got home was under old management or something ... Anyways give the place... More

Management of this property is completely screwed! They had a police sting/take down in the parking lot. Management comes up with petty things to yell yes literally yell at you about even before asking you your aide or perspective. They will create rules if they don't like the way you do things. They also don't allow guests to congregate or... More

We were told by one of the cops that was doing a drug bust in the parking lot not to stay at this hotel and we took his advice! Not worth the low price at all. I don't think this hotel is in a good part of town.. a lot of drug addicts. Pay a little more and go some... More

Entrance is deceiving! Lobby looks great and the front looks like a decent hotel & when they give you a key they tell you to go to the second building at the back! Wait what? Back building is old rundown and smells horrible. Nothing like the front. Not even worth it for the low price. I stayed at many hotels... More
