For what it's worth our room was very clean. The beds were super comfortable! It's right down the block from the Navy recruit training command which was awesome because we were here for my sisters graduation. There's a free shuttle to the RTC & getting a cab home was super cheap because it was right there. There's a restaurant right next door & fast food & a gas station right up the block which was really convenient. The bathroom was very clean & the shower was nice, not like other motels where there's no hot water & the water pressure is horrible. I would suggest bringing your own sheets just because it feels more comfortable but that's just my personal opinion. Very roomy & convenient just no mini fridge in my room 105, so request a room with one if needed. But the best thing about this motel was the man working the desk, I assume the owner. When my sisters taxi didn't show up on time despite us calling ahead we went into scramble mode because she had to be back to the RTC within 15 minutes & the man at the desk helped us try & get a taxi then finally we couldn't get one & the man just asked us to meet him in the back & started to open his car. He drove my sister back to the RTC & wouldn't even accept our money it was the nicest thing ever ! Great experience we had here. I would recommend it to everyone !
