Room was small, clean, comfortable, & secure, but not always quiet. It had micro & small fridge, & free wi-fi was strong. Motel is located conveniently. I was on second floor. Would've liked top floor, but that's for smokers. Person above me made loud strange thumping noises. Fortunately, that was not constant, but that person should've been on the bottom... More

The only two ways that I can imagine anyone giving this hotel a decent review: 1) they paid someone to give the reviews. 2) the pimps and prostitutes are giving the reviews. Besides the obvious discomfort of staying in a hotel with an hourly turnaround of "clients", the lack of towels and pillows was a bit disappointing. The nasty reddish... More

This hotel is dirty, room 113 has a smoky smell. So as I turn on the light I had to kill a flying bug. Very little toilet paper on the roll at check in. The huge block of ice in the freezer can't get drinks in refrigerator. The funiture is old, out dated and damaged.

I've stayed here for a few months now. .. Tameka is by far the nicest front desk associate I've ever met. Hands down. She always has your towels and sheets ready at ANY time ( late night, whatever) and toiletries too. Jeronica is also great. She has a great attitude and is always informative, if you have any questions. I... More

Hotel is cheap 58$, but you don't get a lot, room is clean but smells like hairspray, has a little stove microwave and fridge but is very small. Majority of guests seem to be transients and a lot of little thugs, good parking but lock your car! Overall is ok lodging for construction worker or a single guy but don't... More

I had the occasion to visit one of my coworkers at this hotel and I wanted to share my perspective. I read the reviews before I left and I expected something for more insidious and gloomy than what I walked into. For a short term solution; it is a pretty cool setup - a little table and TV and beds... More

I just spent a few days moving my son in for two months as he begins a new job in the Durham, NC area and awaits his family to relocate with him from Upstate New York. We did our on-line homework searching for a cost effective studio with kitchen in a safe and well placed area. Based on our experience... More

I booked the hotel through the priceline negotiator so I had no say in what hotel was chosen. Looking at the pictures it seemed clean and decent, I had no worries until I read the reviews. People made the hotel seem like it was a scene straight out of a horror movie! I just prayed that people were just being... More
