The motel looks old from outside, so does inside of the room. The room was clean but many old scratches and damages everywhere in the room, I didn't mind it at all though. Wifi worked suprisingly very well. There are lots of restaurants close to the motel, which was very convenient. Minimum amenities: no breakfast, no coffee pot, no microwave, no shampoo. It's a fair deal for the price. Although there is no particularly bad point about this motel for the price, I would try another cheap motel next time I would come around the area.

Previous reviews of this hotel were back in 2011 and 2009 so we thought we'd give it a try. Although it is an older hotel we were pleasantly surprised. The room smelled good upon entering. It was clean and had a good heating unit. It was reasonably priced. Room had hair dryer, refrigerator, and free wifi. The only drawback was that there was no coffee pot in the room. Coffee was available at the front desk at 7:00 am. We would definitely stay here again should we ever revisit the area.

Booked this room by chance through Priceline. It convinced me to always keep my star rating to two stars or better. After getting this room booked, we looked at the reviews and we're scared what this place would be like. The good news is our room was not filthy like many other reviewers experienced. The sheets were clean, the room looked fine, and the only dirty looking thing was the tub which was just stained. There was a good TV and even a little fridge.

That's as positive as it gets. Going to sleep proved very hard. Why? First off, it was probably the worst bed I've ever slept on. It was less comfortable than a camp bunk bed. My back hurt after my short sleep. The hotel should burn all these beds and start over. Also, anytime someone ran water in a nearby room it sounded like a teapot blowing loud steam. It was horrible. I think I got about 4 hours of often interrupted sleep - and I usually sleep 8 with no problem.

I woke up to the WORST breakfast I have ever had at a hotel. There were two cheap cereals, paper bowls, plastic spoons, a fridge with whole milk and tang, and 3 plastic wrapped little debbie snacks. That was their complimentary breakfast. I was not too happy about that.

I would never suggest anyone stay there, and I will never stay again. It is no wonder that when we checked out the "staff" did not even ask, "How was your stay?" I'm sure they have learned to just let their grumpy, sleepy clientele leave in silence.

If it is possible to be in a slum- this hotel is in it. Filthy room, and you could tell by the "clientelle" outside their rooms drinking 40's off the balcony what kind of crowd this hotel draws. I would not ever recommend staying here for $10 a night, let alone $60. Terrible, filthy, and sorry- but NO WAY it's "American" owned and operated.

The bathroom was dirty. The beds were very very hard. Couldn't sleep on the pillows on bed as they were dirty and stained. The wireless didn't work and the clerk's response was that she didn't know what to tell me and hung up. Very dirty!!!!!! Only stayed because I was very tired and didn't think they would refund my money anyway. Didn't even think about eating the continental breakfast as the room was so dirty and wondered about the lobby where the food was on the counter.
