Best beds in the area, but no vending machines. Was located next to the freeway, but left fan running all night to block out the noise. Stayed during peak times so room was a bit pricy, but the beds were amazing

There weren't any hangers to hang up your clothes on. They advertised onlina business center but when we asked about it, the owner said that the... More

The nasty couch shoved under the outdoor stairwell pretending to be a "lounge area" was omen #1, well actually the EMPTY parking lot was #1. The "continental breakfast nook" without tables or chairs was another deception. We merely opened the door to our room and peeked in to determine that we were NOT staying. When we discussed our displeasure with... More

Next, when I entered the bathroom I noticed several cockroaches....yeah, gross. The water pressure was awful while showering. Mattress was uncomfortable. Basically everything sucked. I would've requested a different room had the... More

Small room, too noisy (highway traffic and trucks noise) and not so clean (pillows were not exactly white). Just two towels in the room (we were four). Breakfast standstill, without any table or chair.
