Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

The room doesn't look like the image online at all. The rooms have been remodeled. I love the laminate floors. The IKEA furniture made it feel like a dormitory. The shower was like the one on our cruise ship and there were gnats and mosquitoes.
We had no fridge or microwave! They have a microwave in the lobby...eww!
Never again!
It's next door to a warehouse supply.

After dragging all of our luggage up the stairs, we opened our first room to find the bed unmade. We went back down and got another room because ..gross. The rooms are pretty small. No fridge, no microwave, no coffee pot, and very tiny towels. The shower cleanliness was less than desirable as well. The wi-fi is advertised, but it says nowhere it costs $2.99 per day. The only good part of this hotel was the fairly polite staff at the front when we arrived. We'll definitely pay the extra $100 to stay at Super 8 next time.

We tried to check in here in June 2012 but finally gave up after more than 30 minutes. The poor desk clerk was doing her best, but the credit card machine was not working, and it was impossible to hear her throught the bullet-proof glass in the night check-in area due to the very loud ice machines in the room. The price was okay but not great, and that combined with the disfunctional check-in process made us eventually give up and go elsewhere. This is the type of place you wind up rather than plan to stay.

Rooms were clean but not stocked well. They didn't clean my room while I was there web though they were supposed to. Needed a cheap place quick and they didn't charge a pet fee so it served its purpose.

We decided to stay here just for a short weekend get away. We first pulled into the parking lot & a guy was sitting in the bed of his truck listening to his Ipod and drinking a few beers. Our room was still being cleaned even though we were told to return after 3 p.m. Trash was left on the floor from previous guests. The following day we went to the beach and were gone all day only to return to an uncleaned room. We had to go to the front desk for clean towels and were given a bath towel, two hand towels and a wash cloth for four of us. Luckily, we saw the cleaning ladies and were able to get more from them. The room was a bit small but it was place to lay our heads for a couple nights. We would not recommend this place to people we liked! This place was not too expensive, but as the saying goes...you get what you pay for.
