This place needs a renovation from top to bottom. Rooms and furniture are very outdated and worn. The bathtub was pitted from the decades worth of use. The sheets and linens have been washed so many times they are like cheesecloth. They have to wash the towels before they can return them to your room. One day we didn't get... More

Booked this hotel at the last minute, not bad for the price and would only stay here if I had no other choice. The amenities listed a pool, but when we arrived there was none. The room had been recently painted, however the bathroom was not touched. The bathtub was stained. There was a refrigerator in the room, but no... More

Nothing fancy, but worked for what I needed it for--sleep, shower and getting ready. Outdated furniture. Clean enough, could use some remodeling to make it look more appealing especially the bathroom. Bed not the most comfortable but was fine.

After unexpected delays, we tried crossing the Mexican border on a Friday evening. Gave up, and turned around to find a nearby motel that takes pets. Found this hotel. The room was spacious, clean, had a mini frig and microwave, a sitting area, and no carpet, which I'd prefer. Perfect for an unexpected one night stop over on the way... More

No problems at all. WIFI i think should be free though. Seems like a safe place. Parking lot was a little dirty with trash. But overall was a clean place. Staff attentive. Will probably go back there again.

If you are looking for a clean room, a comfortable bed, and nice shower, with a great t.v. this is a great place to stay. The room has no pictures on the walls, you get two bath towels, to washcloths, and only one hand towel. No shampoo in the rooms. There are no coffee pots, in the rooms, no cups,... More

Everything was clean, for once my non-smoking room didn't smell like smoke which I greatly appreciated, check in and check out was very easy and staff was curteous.
