Literally the motel from hell... In less than 6 hours we saw 7 roaches... We had to buy our own bug spray and still the roaches were just coming out the woodwork. Never again. Worst experience ever!!! Stay at your own risk!!!

The owners went through my paperwork while i had left the room and i had requested room service.I would not stay there for free and the people that stay are bums alcholics and drug users plus you cant sleep because of traffic.

This motel has what I needed: basic, reasonable rate, clean. The staff was very nice and I really liked the Wi-Fi. For me this motel was better than what I expected for $35.
