“U get what you pay for.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2006

At night, the hotel's lobby was locked at 9:00 PM, and there is a secure night window. This gives the impression that the area is not safe. I parked adjacent to the lobby, as I was worried about leaving the car. The exterior of the hotel is acceptable, but on the seedy side. The safety latch on the door did not work as it was installed incorrectly. The molding adjacent to the door lock was damaged. The room was not very clean, although it was not revolting. The decor is fine for this grade of motel. The staff were polite, but not friendly. Someone tried to call me, and was transferred at midnight to the wrong room. When she called back, the operator was impolite.
The beds were comfortable, as were the pillows although they were small. At one point, the toilet did not fill; I had to remove the cover and jiggle the mechanism. Lighting and the shower were fine, good water pressure. TV was good. They provide T-mobile WiFI service but for 1 night that costs $10 (unless you already subscribe). Although the price was good, I will not stay there again.
