“Hated the Place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2003

The incredibly cheap price and the handful of cars in the parking lot should have given it away. The place was the worst I had stayed in in years. Hot room that took forever to get comfortable, towels that felt like sandpaper and had holes in them, soap that was not changed from one night to the next, incredible noise from the street, and panhandlers in the parking lot. A poor motel in a bad part of town. No continental breakfast (despite the claim by Travelodge on its web site that all of the sites have continental breakfasts) and no diet drinks in the inconveniently located vending machines. Not a newspaper vending machine in sight and unsafe to walk to nearby restaurants or convenience stores. I will not stay there again.
