Worst Service Ever

The continental breakfast was a joke, muffins, apples and bananas. My bed had no fitted sheet. When i complained that my phone was broken, I was told someone would fix it. The employees were tacky, dirty and unprofessional.

I wish I could rate this MOTEL a negative 12

There were no fitted sheets on the bed, the phone was broken and i had to walk to the office to ask for towels (which they didn't have). A drunk guest hit my rental car and I went to the "Night Window" to get a pen to gather the driver's information and the front desk clerk said, and I quote "Okay, now will you let me sleep?" I said "isn't this the night window?" she replied "But I'm sleeping now". Worst stay I've ever had anywhere. Awful room, awful service!

RUN AWAY!!

I have stayed at this chain before. However, This location was possibly the worst motel experience I have had in my life. My better half and myself were in town for a function and on a tight schedule. We wanted to get checked in get ready and go to the function. First off, we were given a tiny room. Smaller than a motel 6 room. There was only one towel in the room. No soap no shampoo. After receiving missing items attempted to shower. shower handle came off. was able to get it back on and finished getting ready. after returning from function a few hours later, went and requested a different room. Was told the other rooms were even smaller. Do not think that was really possible..stayed with original room.That night we call for an extra pillow. A guy shows up at the door with two pillows was not friendly at all. On top of it the pillows reeked of curry. Not a surprise since the office smells the same way. The next morning called at 8:40 for fresh towels. rudely asked can you wait til 9:00 when the maid gets in. Then tried to use WI-FI connection .( used the first day no problen just a little slow) Second day could not connect. tried for nearly 30 minutes. went to office and asked is there a new password because it was not working. Lady says no mine works. I said I cannot connect. Again she says mine works. Pulled out my phone typed in password in front of her. received the message could not connect to server. and she responds mine works again.I said can the router or modem possibly be re started? Again.........mine works. I then begin walking out letting her know she is rude and she starts raising her voice with me saying we do everything for you and so on. I said I am your guest your customer. she then says well it could take a couple minutes to find out what is going on...... Wow really? maybe she should have said that first? Not (mine is working) The whole time she has her voice raised at me and talking sternly. Then upon check out. went to return key and heard the same lady telling another gentlemen the coffee machine did not work. Considering the free continental breakfast is a plastic wrapped danish and coffee that's pretty bad. Overall a very very bad experience here. Room was bad Customer service was very bad Some of the clientele looked very shady to say the least. parking is really tight. I honestly cannot think of anything positive here. Just avoid this place. Go down the street to motel 6. They may be basic but at least you know exactly what you're getting.

cheap is what you get

If you want a place to sleep and nothing more, this is fine. The price was lower than the Best Western across the street, but everything was well worn from carpets to paint. You get what you pay for.

The Super Taqueria had lots of locals eating there. Always a good sign. The burritos were large and tasty.

Very fictional

Very poor,The rooms smelled of Indian incense. I prefer a clean room. I have never seen such small soap, or towels so thin. It advertised a continental breakfast (only day old danish and a coffe machine the proprietor was filling a water bottle in a nightgown when I came into the lobby). They did not even open the lobby until 8:30 am for breakfast and took the danish away at 9:30 am ( probably to use again tomorrow).I will NEVER go here again!

Extremely overpriced, pillow-less rooms

We were in town for a wedding and needed a place to crash after the reception. Even though we weren't planning on spending much time in the room, for the price, I would at least expect a real pillow, lights bright enough to take my contacts in and out, air conditioning that works, and a quiet room. I guess it is an expensive area so they can get away with the high prices for what would be, anywhere else, a really cheap room. The staff I had contact with also had little clue how to check us in or tell that we had already paid (we had). I stood there for 15 minutes while she called for help and waited for the manager to appear.
