First of all, I have to totally agree with all the other negative commentators about the "very strong smell of cleaning products in the hallways". My room inside was very dingy, the comforter looked about 15 years old, the desk had a sticky substance on it which I cleaned off myself. I was approached by a panhandler outside in the parking lot of the motel upon arriving--I mentioned the incident to the front desk person and he didn't seem to care one bit about the pandhandler loitering in the parking lot. Then I was awoken at 8am by a paranoid schizophrenic woman banging on my door; upon slightly opening the door, she shoved the door open with her arm faster than my reflexes could react given I was half asleep. After about a minute of trying to de-escalate her myself, she stormed off back into the hallway. I called the front desk and alerted them of the situation and they said they'd call the police--I was given no apologies from them for the disturbance. I then found out from the cleaning guy on the floor that apparently she has been living in the motel for 4 months which I found uncanny considering the motel staff must have known about this but yet did nothing to rectify the situation (ie. contacting the authorities). So needless to say, yes, my stay at this motel was highly unfavorable.
