2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This hotel was poorly advertised. It looked clean online but in reality it's run down and in need of attention. Our room floor was dirty with hair, the sheets were crumbled, the Internet was not "high speed" ....it was crap! The bathroom had chipping paint with rust. The tub floor was dirty. There was a wod of cords plugged into an extension cord.

Staff was extremely nice and helpful. Unfortunatly, the room was old and dirty and this did not make for an enjoyable stay. In great need of updating and intense cleaning.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

I don't want to be a Debbie Downer here, but this place is bad. I was supposed to stay there with my son for a team tournament but I just couldn't do it. It backs up to an alley and the rooms have two doors, one to the front of the property, the other to this dingy alley. There was a smelly over-flowing garbage can right under the stairs which are the only way to the upper floor, and a lovely soiled plunger sitting right outside of our room. We took one look at the sagging bed and called it right then and there. They were nice enough to refund one of our two nights but considering what we encountered, it should have been both nights. I don't know who would consider this a viable option. This place is in serious need of a renovation, and a good scrubbing, and a paint job. Oh boy.

Room Tip: no fitness center or room service.

This is an OK type of motel. Very old and dated. Certainly needs a rebuild to modern standards. Bathroom was especially small and old style. Only plug in the sink area was way up over the sink next to the top of the mirror and barely reachable. It was adequate for a short visit but will probably never stay there again. Would hate to try it in winter, probably very cold and drafty as daylight came though both outdoor doors and duct tape plugged some of the holes.
