The wi-fi was one of the slowest we have ever met. Just amazingly slow. Everything else was ok. Room was clean and there was big powerful fridge. Shower had good pressure and water was warm enough. We checked-in on time (not early), but our room wasn't ready and we had to wait like 20 minutes.

This Hotel is the best for its price compared to the other 3 around it. The staff is always nice and helpful. Its clean and has no bugs! I wish they had more parking but other than that its a GREAT HOTEL!

My family and I had three rooms for two nights. The following is a very detailed review. HOTEL AREA: Within walking distance there is a McDonald’s, AM/PM Arco Gas Station, Black Angus, Taco Bell and Dragon Express Asian Restaurant, along with a Aunt Emma’s Restaurant next door. I didn’t feel unsafe during daylight hours. However, at night, the hotel “side”...

This is a budget hotel that is very well maintained. I stay here often because I can usually find a room for less than $100. Great place for the price! It is located about 15 - 20 minutes from down town!

I stayed at this hotel to be closer to an interview and it was so relaxing and great choice. I stayed there on the past for the same reason and it feels like I was on vacation. Everything is clean and nice. I strongly recommend it and the price is great.

This BW outlet dispels my notion that BW hotels have uniform min standards one can expect around the country. Things that dampened our stay was the slow wifi, the lack of water refillers you could expect from the welcoming lounge of most BW. The soda vending machine near we stayed was not working (for our water supply) Garbash was overflowing...

Room 254, March 20 - 24 2017. First I have to commend the check in and breakfast staff. The woman who checked us in was friendly and helpful. She made a OUTSTANDING first impression. (We checked in around 5:30 PM on the 20th in case the hotel managers read this and want to commend their employee, she deserves it.) It...

I want to apologize for your stay. I will be speaking with my housekeeping staff. As far as the security of the hotel, we have security cameras all over our property and our night auditor does walk around the property.
