Remember, this is a 2-star hotel, if that. So it should be graded as such. They're not trying to be anything above that.
All that being said, I would choose to stay here again based on the very cheap price relative to all the other hotels in this convention center area. I wouldn't stay here for romance or a family vacation, but for me with a friend at a conference it was just fine for the price and convenience.
Front desk staff was friendly and helpful at check in. Very good service.
Room was as expected for a motel. A little on the dated, musty side, but it was fine. There was a cigarette hole in my comforter which was gross. Mostly clean overall.
Bathroom soaps and shampoos were tiny, but we were given many more upon request. Shower water pressure was good, but water did stand in the tub during shower.
There is coffee in the room, as well as 24 hours in the lobby.
TV was flat panel, although immovable. Beds were small, but I slept well.
Very little noise. Comfortable temperatures in room. A/C units were not overly noisy.
You pay $5 a day for parking, which is a steal compared to anywhere else around.
The breakfast was very basic. Continental. But it filled me up until lunch each morning.
I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay for super cheap but still within walking distance of the Yum Center and Convention Center.
A solid offering for a motel.
