“What a pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We debated about staying due to some reviews but in the end we wanted a cheap motel with a pool, we were more than pleasantly surprised, the rooms were lovely, modern and with good facilities, the staff were really helpful and the breakfast even included freshly cooked waffles. Not only was there a small pool but also a hot tub and sauna, great after a long drive. You could walk to shops and restaurants. Great value for money.

We stay at this hotel for the value, room is clean and quiet. This is an older property, so does not have all the amenities of the new hotels but location is good and cost is reasonable. They provide basic breakfast which is included in your room rate, so saves on having to stop at a restaurant. Service is good and they have been courteous even when we have arrived late in the evening.

Room Tip: If you are looking for good value, this is the place to stay. They do not have all the fancy bells a...

At 11:01 am owner rudely called our room. At 11:05 she came banging on our door telling us to check out. She literally banged on the door and then preceded to open it! Imagine if we were changing. I've never experienced such rudeness.
The hallways stunk of smoke. The room was not clean enough and I inspected the mattress for bedbugs thankfully I found none. At 2 am a patron down the hall was screaming his head off however the young male clerk who was nice did go upstairs to tell the guy off and to quiet down.
I did not feel safe in this hotel the outside doors have no lock and anyone could enter the hotel without a key via the back door! Very dangerous. The rooms are stale and not extremely clean, also you can hear everything and when someone has a bath you swear they are bathing in your suite its so loud.

The rate is very cheap and in a area nearby to amenities but with the extreme rude service from the woman at checkout and the lack of safety at this hotel and smell I would not return.

The location was excellent. There were lots of good restaurants nearby, and it is very close to downtown. It was clean, and the service was good. All in all, very good value for the price. I will be back!

we have 2 kids under 12 the rooms was large enough clean and comfortable beds, good shower pressure and heat. The pool was good the free breakfast was great, waffles made to order. The internet was good and they let us leave our car for 4 days when we flew to Las Vegas for free. We used the microwave and fridge it was all perfect for our needs.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We are two senior women who stayed here for two nights November 23-25, 2012. We were very happy with our rooms, 2 queen beds, microwave and fridge. Ground floor. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had contact with 3 different staff members and all were very helpful and greeted us cheerfully any time we saw them. We had a continental breakfast each morning. There were a few small issues such as the fridge sitting on the floor with the microwave on top. It would have been easier if they had been on a small stand. The room was clean and we had a good time. The hot tub was wonderful after a full day of shopping. This is not the Hilton folks and the price reflects that. I would definitely stay here again.
