Stayed here one night and glad for it. Rooms are pretty worn out. AC didn't work properly. Did not cool well. It was the cheapest, so we got what we paid for. But will not stay again unless they do some renovations. It was relatively quite. Breakfast is what you would expect in a lower price place.

The rooms were clean and recently updated. It was very quiet except for a couple of random sirens from the fire station on the opposite side of the road. Staff were friendly. The only issue I had, was I requested a room with a refrigerator. Upon checking in, i was informed that because of the room i had booked (at... More

I was looking for somewhere to stay for under$100 a night and my search brought me to this place. Clean rooms, choice of smoking or non smoking rooms, alot of channels on the television and close to the airport, shops and restaurants. I only have one complaint and that is the stairwell isn't very well lit but other than that... More

Not a bad stay for the money by any means, but also don't expect too much. Rooms are acceptable, but a bit dated. Looks like it gets painted a lot to keep it looking decent. Also, keep an eye on the door lock; mine looked like it had been kicked in once or twice, I had to screw with it... More

This place was scary.. Beds were horribly uncomfortable. The amount of people going in and out was unreal. They did except dogs but placed us next to their utility closet room and the stairs for the second floor.. Noise all night. I took the dogs for a morning walk along the hotel fence and came upon the dumpsters. When I... More

The facility is old and tired. The lock on our door was partially broken, paint peeling off the window sill, the curtains were very shabby, and the room had a stale musty smell. Despite that, the room was clean, and the Internet worked well. Breakfast was very limited. Good value as it was inexpensive compared to other area hotels.

We booked this motel for 2 nights in May for a family wedding. Room was clean, 2 double beds and had everything we needed except for a safe box. Good free WIFI. The sink is outside the bathroom. Breakfast was poor. Good value for the inexpensive rate. Nearby there are a few restaurants.

Stayed two nights as we liked the area's facilities, helpful front desk staff, rooms have everything you need for a short stay, surprisingly quite considering location and handy for nearby shopping malls and some good restos. Breakfast is continental and adequate. Wi-Fi was erratic.

This appears to be an older motel which has been completely modernized and transformed very recently. Everything was clean and new, comfortable and functional. I try not to be too effusive in these reviews, because nothing is perfect. But this is pretty close, considering price and location. Motels are motor hotels, where you can drive to and park ar your... More

Had a great 1 night stay here recently a few days ago. Check in was fast and efficient. Room was immaculate. I check everything out on arrival always at hotels and this was about perfect. Pillow cases had some deep stains but found perfect clean ones of the pillows on both beds. Bathroom, tub, toilet, sink, bed linen, towels were... More
