First let me say that I've stayed at many hotels and motels over the years, yet the pictures had me fooled. I've stayed at Super 8 a Motel 6 rooms that were much cleaner and far more acceptable. I stayed in room 36, first level "end" room (the narrow room on my right was a housekeeping storage room). The room layout had the feeling of a small studio section 8 apartment. There was dirt and mold/grim along the baseboards and spots all over the walls and ceiling in the bathroom. A lot of mold on ceiling above shower/tub. There was no fan in the bathroom, yet a sliding window in the shower that opened. I only opened the window briefly at night to smoke a blunt and look strait out at downtown while standing on the tub. Other than that, no one should ever open the window on the first floor as it is not safe!! The beds were hard as a rock and everything looked dated and worn. The night stand between the beds looked sticky. I kept getting the feeling that cockroaches or other bugs would crawl on me - but I seen no bugs. The tile flooring didn't turn my feet black, as other claimed. The housekeeping staff were very friendly, understaffed, overworked, and underpaid. My room didn't get serviced until 3pm, but again I don't blame the maid. The pool was locked and no ice machine in sight. This was the worst room I ever rented and it was $99 a night for all 4 nights. The breakfast was nothing more than some cereal and bread to toast. Orange juice and coffee were also served. I walked out very disappointed and went to 7-11. The rooms come with a mini fridge and microwave which I did like. The AC was a very loud ghetto old wall unit with a broken digital display so I could only use the "ON" button, no temp controls! The only really great thing about this motel is that its 2 blocks from downtown; 10 minute walk from the 7th Street Metro Rail station which I used. Still, I always made it a point to return well before dusk as the neighborhood was a little shady walking those 2 blocks over the freeway. I was only "hit up" by one gang member asking me if I gang banged due to my Raiders shirt and low socks. That was the only night I was returning as it got dark, so reality of those 2 blocks set in! I would only recommend this motel to college students on a budget wanting to get out for a night or to construction workers. Oh, one other plus is the large amount of DIRECTV channels but their signal constantly scattered/ pixelated.
