“Ok but we paid to much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012 via mobile

Me and my fiance paid 84 dollars a night + tax and the room was messy when we checked in the maid people told me and him to sit in the room next to us so they could clean it. After the cleaned it we went in and sat for a min. we left to visit somje family and then back to the hotel/motel. when we got i had to clean the bathtub which was worn down the paint was pilling off but anyway i had to clean it. the first night of sleep we barely sleep. firm bed very firm and really soft pillows dont mix. plus the airplanes every night but other then all that it was ok.

not very clean, lots of dirt in corners, I think they vacumn the center of the room, don't look under anything..!!! Our refrigerator which we were very grateful to have had a steady pinging noise... thought it would blow up but it did work and I think after awhile the noise lolled me to sleep. Breakfast was adequate ...... the best thing is the price and you get what you pay for.. it was quiet and we slept well.

Fairly priced. Breakfast is sufficient. Staff is nice and very accomodating. Older property but clean. Seen better, but seen MUCH worse! If yer' a "nit-picker" then stay at the HILTON.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have micro-fridges, but staff will give them to you as long as they are available.

I have read several negative comments about his hotel but I think people are over-sensationalizing some things. I just spent two night at this hotel and while it is not the Ritz-Carlton, for $50 a night you get what you pay for. Sure, there are some stains on the carpet and you can see where the rooms have been repainted but the bed was nice, the sheets were clean and everything worked in the room.
Add to that the breakfast and for the price it isn't bad. I have paid more money for less quality before so if you are on a budget then you might want to give this place a try. It is close to the airport and not too far from some great restaurants. In short, it doesn't suck.

Room Tip: I stayed on the backside of the hotel so there was no traffic coming through at night. You park in f...

I wish I would have read some of the reviews before choosing to stay at this hotel. The room was very dirty and in need of basic repair and cleaning. I did not take my shoes off the whole time I was in the room because the carpet looked like it had not ever been cleaned. The towels were no longer white and I had to go out a buy an air freshner because the room had a bad odor :( The rate was really cheap and now I know why - even for the good price I would never stay here again. I am just glad that I did not have my child with me - would not have stayed if I did. Would definately not recommend for anyone to stay here.

If you want to see what a motel in need of drastic refurbishment looks like, this is the place to view. Dated, Odors galore for starters. We should have walked! Down load the Trip Advisor App and make a better informed decision than we did!
