Staff was very friendly and check-in took just a few minutes which i loved. The room is what i expected from this type hotel. The room was clean and the king size bed was sooo cozy! It is right by the interstate, for a really light sleeper it may be a problem to hear the occasional lg trucks coming off the exit. For me, this wasn't an issue plus the tv has sound machine options that help.

My husband and I stayed at this motel a week ago before boarding our cruise ship, and then again a couple of nights ago after coming back from our cruise. The first night went fairly well, nothing special to report. The place matches the price you pay. No positive or negative surprise.

The second night was quite different. Several things happened that really bothered us.
First: We checked in at about 7 pm or so. Thirty minutes later, someone banged violently on our door and when we looked through the hole to see who it was, no one was standing in front of the door. It was a little freaky because the hotel is not in the best area of town. We called the front desk and asked them to send a security person. Instead of sending an adequate security person, they sent the lady from the front desk (who was nice enough, by the way). She said she would check it out and make sure everything was ok. Everything was calm after that.
Secondly, as I was sitting at the desk, I could smell cigarette smoke coming from the room that had its back to ours. I don't know if these people were in a smoking room or not, but since I had requested a non-smoking room, I expected to not be bothered by cigarette smells. That went on for a couple of hours at least. I think it might have come from the electrical outlet... but I'm not sure. I called the front desk a few times to report it, but no one picked up this time.
Also, the walls at this motel are paper thin and you could hear your neighbors if they were loud (which they were) and you could hear their shower pretty loudly too.
Thirdly: This place accepts pets. Around 4 am, a small dog in one of the rooms started yapping and we kept hearing it until morning. Thank God for earplugs!
Small detail: The first night, our room had tissues. The second night, it didn't.

Breakfast offered a variety of items, but they were of poor quality, in my opinion.

Stayed two nights before and after a long trip to Tahiti, 1/12/13 and 1/27. Both times staff was polite and the rooms were comfortable, clean and the the airport shuttle fast, both going to the airport and on the return. We parked there for 15 days for $50.00, saving $100.00 over the airport lot rate. Breakfast was ok, I've had better, but there's a Waffle House right across the street.

Older property with doors to the rooms facing the parking lot and no elevator. Room was clean, tub slow to drain, missing shower parts, bed very comfortable. Orange juice watered down and breakfast minimal with cold cereal, bagels, toast, hard boiled eggs and coffee.

Room Tip: Very close to interstate and can be noisy.
