This place is the worst place I have ever seen! Nothing like the pictures. There was hair all over the shower, the walls are stained with god only knows what! Hair in the beds, and I would not touch the carpet and if I had a dog I wouldn't have let it walk on it! There was mold in the...

I wasn't expecting too much because of how cheap it was, but it actually wasn't bad. We got the king non-smoking suite. The room smelled good and it was clean, there weren't very loud neighbors, and there was a menu for restaurants that deliver (which was great because we got in pretty late). The owner was very accommodating and agreed...

I needed a place where I could get two rooms next to each other for a one night stay. Did not want to spend too much so decided on this place. Read reviews so was not too shocked by what I found. The decor is definitely dated and could use some up-dating. The small refrigerator in my room made so...

We booked 2 nights here on our road trip, knowing we'd want to hang in Portland for a couple days. It's okay; says a lot that out of nearly 20 motels on our trip, this was the only one that insisted on holding a deposit on my credit card (refunded upon room check by the maid after we check out)....

This property is run down and dirty. It is located near the transit system and the sign is cool. However those items don't make for a nice stay. The carpet was ripped and the chair kept gettting hung up on it. The shower curtain had so much mold I had to peel it apart. It was just a crappy place...

This hotel is basically a dive in a convenient location. Pay a bit more and get another hotel. The overall room is worn out. The good part is that the wifi worked. I should have reviewed trip advisor before I booked.

I originally had a reservation here last month and when I checked in I opened the door to 'my' room to find a very pissed off couple who already were in the room. With no apology, the clerk (who I had to call because the office was locked and unattended) just shrugged it off and told me he had no...

The office is always locked, even during the day. You have to ring the bell and wait till a sleepy employee emerges from the back room making you feel like you're bothering him or her. We stayed at the motel 5 nights; the bed linens were never changed. Every day I had to be going to the office because the...

The owner Bob is horribly rude, and he will do whatever he can to charge you for whatever he can. Check their facebook page for more reviews. Terrible and dirty. Charged our credit card a charge that we did not authorize.

The good: Location is just across the river to city center. There’s a big fridge in the room and only point considered family friendly motel. The bad: It's a rundown place with broken furnitures and other things collected by a corner of the building. The two-queen-bed room I got was tight with space enough walk around the two beds. Dirty...

“Try a non-smoking room if they are available, as they should be better than the smoking rooms. If only smoking is available, just have a good sense of humor and you'll be alright.”
