Stayed here for four nights in April. I was a bit hesitant at first after reading the reviews here, but was surprised.
First off, do not expect anything fancy here - you get what you pay for. For the $41 a night I payed, the place was great - if you are expecting the Hilton, go to the Hilton.
Arrived an hour before check in and the front desk got me into my room right away. The property is an older property, and it shows in all respects - dated buildings, bathrooms, no elevator, rooms that exit directly outside, etc. However the owners keep it the best that they can.
Upon entering the room I was surprised at the size of it, as it looks like it will be alot smaller from the outside. TV reception was good, wifi signal was strong, king sized bed was comfortable. They also have a pool which was closed when i was there but looks to be well kept. They also offer a free breakfast which I did not have. There is also a mini fridge in the toom, along with a safe.
The downside to this property is the age - especially the bathrooms. While clean, they definitley need to be renovated - think 1970's vintage pink with lemon yellow painted tile walls. Also it would have been nice if there was a do not disturb sign in the room when I arrived - I was awoken by the housekeeping staff the next morning. However this was rectified at that time, and being woken up was a minor hassle.
There is a restaurant next door, however they close at 4pm every day - so plan on getting there early. I never went there, but looking at the menu that was in the room the prices were great!!
Major plus and minus is that the property is right off of I-80. This makes it extremely convienient. However it also contributes to the noise level - especially since the rooms exit directly outside. Where my room was situated, I got the shine of headlights from cars turning off the main road onto the side room through my window every night.
All in all my stay was a pleasant one. So long as your expectations fit that of a $40 a night motel, you really won't be too disappointed.
