The room stank of cigarettes and what not. The bathroom door wouldn't lock. The floor of the room was dirtier than the outside, very poor quality breakfast and the price isn't cheap as compared to other options either. This was the condition of both our rooms. Location wise - There's a Denny's and 7/11 right next to it. There are... More

I thought I booked a hotel but definitely a motel. The room smelled but I can tell you what the smell was. We got up for breakfast that is from 6a-9a but there was literally one piece of bread left and that's it. Very disappointing. The only solace was the bed was comfortable.

We thought it was going to be a "HOTEL" but when we got to the "HOTEL" we were shocked. We didn't understand why would the description said this is a MOTEL and when we got our room and opened it reaked the smell of smoke. No matter how much perfume we put the smell never got any better.

This was my first time staying at this hotel. It was very nice and clean, the bed was comfortable. For a older hotel it has been up dated very well. The hotel staff was very nice, as was the breakfast. I will stay here again.
