“pretty good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

For the money, we had a pretty good stay. Room has a good cold AC and a mini frige and microwave. Had cable with HBO and a pool. Staff was nice and gave us a decent price. Room was clean and we didn't have any problems.

Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm so sorry that your stay with us during a very busy period was less than satisfactory. We strive to offer clean and comfortable rooms and a low price and I'm very sorry that we fell short. We have made several changes and improvements recently including hiring a new General Manager and Executive housekeeper. We have also increased our linen inventory so we never run low and we schedule housekeeping until 8 or 9 pm in order to make our guests stays more comfortable.

After shopping around we found that this motel had the best price in the area. This is a typical older motel but the price was right. There is a coin laundry room, arcade and the rooms have coffee pots and mini fridges. They have rooms with kitchens but we didn't stay in one. The room was clean and the AC and cabel worked fine. If saving money is the goal, this is it.

Room Tip: If you want to cook, try a room with a kitchen. I think the rooms facing the pool are a couiple buck...

We pulled up to check in and we all said OMG. There weboricre sheets used as curtains, mattresses and broken tv outside on the ground. The lady at the desk assured us the rooms were cleaned. Went in to find a horrible odor, boric acid on floor for roaches. Reported it to the manager and he apologized. Went to look at about four other rooms on site and they were all horrible. In one room my husband had fleas all over his legs. The housekeeper response was I told them we needed more bug spray. We passed in front of one room and there were cats and dogs all over tbe beds. I wouldn't let my dog stay there. Priceline gave us a refund, but I am definetly calling the health department. I can't believe people stay there. Checked into another high class hotel and was told a previous guess said rats jumped on her at American Quality. That place is a dump and need to be condemed. They smoke in the office so it stinks also. I wouldn't stay there if it was free. Dead roaches on counter top. I wiped down one room with clorox wipes and the clorox sheets were black. Spend the extra money and don't stay there with fleas and prostitutes. You get weekly rates there and you would be surprised of the nasty people hanging around.
