I wasn't expecting a ton out of this motel, mainly because the prices were so cheap and it was the last place available. We went on a game weekend - glad the room had a fridge because we brought beer. Unfortunately, after cracking open the first one and setting it down to get ready, a bug made it's way to... More

Average room/amenities. I stayed in 101 and it was apparently a pet room, as the bathroom door was severely scratched/clawed at, and the room smelled of pets. I wish I had discovered it sooner, and I would have asked for another room. Toilet was dirty/stained. A nice quiet place and well lighted at night for security. What more can you... More

Very nice, spacious room - clean, very comfy bed, good A/C, everything worked OK. There was plenty of ice. The non-smoking room smelled a little of residual smoke. The Mexican restaurant across the street is good.

I tried to give the place the benefit of the doubt--and by myself I may have gone ahead and stayed the night--but the filthy carpet, the glass door to the room covered by a drape if you want privacy, and the smokey smell that had my young son begging to sleep in the van, compelled us to load our stuff...

The couple at the front desk were very sweet and helpful! The motel is dated but was clean. We had a very comfortable king bed. Our room was on the backside if the motel and was very quiet.The room cost was only $49. Across the street at Super 7 the rooms were almost $60. We were able to have our... More

Run down, worn out carpet and furniture with years of wear. Smelled of smoke even though non-smoking. Refrigerator did not work. Wi-fi internet worked for 5 minutes after 2 hours trying to have firm fix it. Neighborhood noisy and sketchy. This property should never be rated a 2 star.

For $45.00 per night, you get a clean room. However the place needs updating. Some updating has been done, but room is still dark and outdated. Staff was knowledgeable about close restaurants, so they get a bonus point for that. I hate staying at any hotel where the clerks are not able to recommend a dining establishment. All in all...

This place should be condemned, between the hearing and seeing bugs but also hearing but not seeing the mice, wow went to wash scum off in shower in morn and found a used soap bar, nice the sheets were stained and stunk, I've been in nicer jails than this dump , stay away

I expected this place to be a bit dumpy but it wasn't. My room was as nice as the Super 8 next door and totally QUIET! My king bed was as good as beds get - with super-soft sheets! Internet, HBO, Fridge, Micro. No breakfast but who eats that crap at Super 8 anyway? Frozen bagels anyone? I saved $20... More
