“Stay next door instead!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2005

As I booked last minute during a major convention, all that was left within my budget was the ominously named City Limits Motel. If only it was outside the City Limits, it would never have come to my attention, and I would have been saved the embarrassment of having this on my credit card statement! When I was dropped off, first impressions were pretty rock bottom. But then I went to my room, and I realised something below rock bottom existed. Dark, dingy and dirty spring to mind automatically. I didn't think places like this existed anymore! My recommendation would be to stay next door at the Somerset on Gordon Place - just a dollar or two more, but in a different league altogether. To sum up City Limits (or Nutbush as my colleagues have oh so cleverly renamed it!) it is the sort of place that you look both ways before entering/exiting, just in case someone sees you going in/out!
