“Beyond disgustingly filthy; it was obscenely disgusting”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The first thing I saw when I walked in the room was a large bed with a very thin mattress. I pulled the fitted quilt back and there was just a bottom on the sheet on the bed; that's it. The walls had been spackled and not painted. The drawers were screwed shut on the furniture. There appeared to be dried blood on the dresser and also there was some kind of mucous-looking spots on top of the night stand -- very viscous. There were white crusty spots, which looked like dried semen, all over the floor next to the bed. There was a trail of vomit outside the door to the room, which I didn't notice at night when I arrived because of inadequate lighting. There was a broken soap/lotion dispenser on the wall in the shower/bath wall that was broken. There were stains in the bottom of the toilet bowl that I hoped was rust. There were mold stains in the tub. I ended up staying because I had just finished 14 hours of driving on the freeway and was super exhausted. I just slept on the one bottom sheet with no covers for fear of what might be on that. I have traveled the world four times, even in third world countries, and this was the absolute worst motel I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Always check the room out before you pay for it, which I failed to do. Just because it says America...

The room was pleasant and clean on first impression. (On closer inspection a small dirty spot on the bedside table, but not bad.) There were two things I didn't like so much about the room: the connecting door (not soundproof), and the creaky bathtub floor. Neither turned out to be too bad during my stay. The guest laundry room and the pool/spa were not open. Both needed repair, aparently. However, this was ok because the room was a nice price thanks to an ad on craigslist. The hotel is by the freeway, bus stop, Olive Garden restaurant across the street, and other shops and eating places like McDonalds, Village Inn, an asian buffet, Taco Bell, dollar stores, and Albertsons all just .7 miles north. There was a roller skating rink close by supposedly, but I didn't look into that.

We had a wonderful stay. After checking out, we got 2 hours from hotel and realized our 16 month olds prize possession (a stuffed pink hippo) was not in the car. It had to be in the room. We called and the front desk manager, Tran, quickly searched the room with no luck but soon found "Hippo" in the parking lot. He overnighted "Hippo' and saved the day! We are so happy that Tran did this for us and we will gladly stay with him on our next trip through.

Room Tip: Room was clean with a good amount of space. The room rate was very reasonable.

Office area was a little funky – didn't have that cleaned and cared for feeling. The lobby refrigerator where the coffee was had a freezer that had ice build up and something funky in the fridge.
Two soda machines were empty, pool and was “temporarily being serviced” but in reality looked like no repair or service was in sight. Room was small, facing the parking lot but was okay as far as clean.
The main thing this property has going for it is the location, just off I40 and has several restaurants near by, and I suppose the price.

ld definitely stay here again for my business travels. Good location right off I-40 east side location. Convenient to restaurants, malls and such. Basic necessities provided but you get what you pay for. Still an excellent inexpensive choice for a motel. And the extra 20% discount for Spring savings made it even a better deal.
