It was a good place according to the price. The bed was comfortable, good air conditioner, clean bathroom, Large flat TV. The WiFi signal was not so strong in our room, sometimes impossible to use. The location was close to airport and easy to access downtown by bus (line 8).

....and have learned lesson NOT to always trust ratings. Room was not so bad, but had no telephone, no facial tissue offered, 2 towels, and no closet. Only stayed one night as we were exhausted from travel so unpacking was not an issue. I did leave raincoat over chair and called motel back to have them save it for me... More

Condom wrapper on the floor. Room smelled like bleach. Decent size room. One pillow and towel per person. Little noisy outside. No phone in the room. Front desk is not always staffed. I would not stay again. Some decent food places close. Our cabdriver giggled when he saw the place. I think they trying to make it a better place,... More

Room was mostly clean but tastless. Blanket was dirty so we had to sleep only with sheets so the night was cold! The price was supposed to include breakfast but it did not! The breakfast was one of the reasons to book room from that hotel. Service was quite rude.

I reviewed their Facebook page and our room looked nothing like those photos. It was very clean (although the smell of bleach was somewhat over powering). We arrived early, was allowed to check-in so appreciated that. Room was large, bed was small, nice TV, but it was a high def TV with no high def service, nice bathroom - modern... More

During that month I lived in six different motels and this one was the worst! On the photos and the idea of its inner design of the place is all good. But it was indeed false advertisement. I stayed there for a week and house keeper came just twice to make the bed and bring clean towels. Not to mention,... More

Alot of people complain about this place because people under 18 are not allowed, yet it's pretty clear that this is a motel for adults. But yes, you can use it to stay without these intentions. It's $80 for an entire day, which is great. I didn't expect it to be that good because of the way it looked from... More

We are still on our travels in the USA and needed a bed for the night on our way to Port Charlotte in Florida. This hotel was perfect for us and had all we needed except coffee making facilities. However, everything else was good. Restaurants were close by although you were limited. The staff at the desk were good but... More
