“Exactly What It is...A True Budget Hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Well....um...it is...um...exactly what you pay for. This is the first hotel we have ever stayed at that has a reception desk surrounded by bullet proof glass. We were "upgraded" to a suite (just a larger room with a table and chairs) by the front desk person. We asked if there were any renovated rooms but were told "No" by the front desk even though there are signs everywhere that read "Please pardon our appearance, renovations underway"... there seem to be no renovations underway.
The carpets and walls in the room were dirty and the smell of marijuana drifted through the air all night and into the morning. We kept the sheets tightly on as the mattress cover was littered with hairs and was dirty.
If you are looking for an inexpensive night in the area then you will not be disappointed as the rates are around $40 a night. If you are a college student, young wandering couple or are not overly concerned about cleanliness than this is the place for you.
If you are a family traveling with young children as we are whose kids were on the carpet a lot I would say avoid this place. Luckily, we brought our own port a cribs.
We spent one night, did not stay for the complimentary breakfast and will not return.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I was a little concerned after reading some of the reviews but I took a chance anyway. It is a bit hard to see but GPS found the place fine. The lobby was fine in appearance but the "glass vault" where the clerk sits does put off a "vibe" suggesting it may not be the safest place to stay. The room was fine, nothing fancy but clean enough and big enough. There is a small fridge and microwave. The mattress was VERY firm. The WIFI worked great and the TV was OK. Breakfast was OK. The hallways are smokey and in need of painting or wallpapering. The elevator works but it needs some maintenance or refitting. The staff was very nice but I probably won't stay here again.

Stayed December 2012, traveled solo

The accomadations were fine. The price was okay.
The location was very difficult to get to.
Your sign is well hidden by trees on apparantly a dead end street, after locating the area we drove to the right instaed of left because your sign is not visible .
You may be okay when the leaves are gone , but remembewr they come back with more leaves tthan last year.
The city needs to pay attention to your request for more visibility..

The room I stayed in was very pleasant although the bathroom wasn't in the best condition, and that coffee maker was very dirty and nasty. I couldn't possibly use it, there was discoloration in the water reservior, it was disqusting. Also there could've been more soap in the room.
