Ghetto

I'm not sure how else to describe this hotel. It was just a little too ghetto.

Pleasantly Surprised

Read bad reviews but was shocked. Must be under new management as the room was ready early, extremely clean, fresh paint, security. Only paint 60 dollars and it was well worth at least 80. Will stay here next time.

Smelled like an ash tray and had roaches

Just needed a clean room to sleep in a few hours while taking a break from the road. Got a dirty room that smelled like an ash-tray. Cockroaches scattered when I turned on the bathroom light. I have stayed at better places for less. I would have found a different place to stay if it wasn't already 1AM. Orbitz should remove this hotel from their inventory.

Low budget hotel

This hotel is more like a motel and if you don't want to spend a lot of money then go for it. If you want something a little bit more clean and more comfortable I would suggest going somewhere else. The neighborhood is a little ghetto too. My friend and I went running and people were looking at us weird.

Clean Rooms

Felt some reviews were unfair or unrealistic. My experience follows. This motel fills the bill for what it offers. Low price, clean room, friendly and helpful staff, clean property, cable TV, A/C, refrigerator, visible security personnel. More parking is needed for the number of rooms they offer. However -- one day a desk manager gave up his manager stall to me. He was very responsive and quick to offer it up, so that there was no chance of me getting a ticket or a tow. (THANK-YOU again!) If you need a honeymoon suite -or- for a special event; go to a more expensive hotel. If you need a clean, safe place to sleep . . . for the money, this motel is worth it. [ Note to motel owner: Lose the pool for more parking. You will not lose customers. ]

Within approx. 1 mile: Stores, restaurants, other retails to fill needs (auto, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc.) Conveniences!
