“Inexpensive, clean older motel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Our room was very large, had a queen bed, older TV, fridge, and microwave. There was also a table and two chairs and a dresser for clothes. The sink was in-room. The bathroom had the toilet and tub/shower. We had 2 bath towels, 1 hand towel, and 2 face cloths -- not too thick. The room had the door in the middle and two large windows on either side. The check-in was at the office, which is just a walk-up window. You are given a remote control for the TV. Ours turned out not to work (probably needed new batteries) and we easily got another. The internet worked well. The parking spaces are small, which is a bit tight if you have a large van. It also doesn't look like there are enough parking spaces, as the 2-story building is in a U-shape and there seems to be just one parking space in front of each downstairs room. There is no breakfast. There is no in-room coffee maker, so bring your own or cups so you can make coffee or tea in the microwave. There seems to be a place to have breakfast about 1 1/2 blocks away (starting at 9 a.m.), next to the Thai Taste restaurant (which was very good for dinner). This motel is on a busy street in a mixed neighborhood that seems to have a lot of car repair and car parts shops and electronics and electronics repair shops.

Room Tip: I would choose a downstairs room to be sure I would get parking.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Large clean room, bathrooms being renovated but old one worked well - just showing its age. A bit noisy but it's hard to find motels off the main drag. Good value at $50-$60.

We would choose this motel again unless we wanted something more upscale.
