great price and location

Parking Area needs to have the traffic mirror installed in order to better serve inbound and outbound traffic. T.V.'s must be placed on the swivel platter in order to serve both bed viewers.

Never again

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel appears clean from the outside, but once you're inside it's a different story. The room had peeling paint, there was mold in the caulking around the bath tub,the baseboards were missing in places, and the shower head was so low that I had to crouch to take a shower. The neighbourhood was tough and I did not feel comfortable. There is no place to eat within walking distance, and I'm not sure I would walk in that area anyway. When I checked in the staff at the front desk said make sure you lock your car. I looked back in alarm and he said well you should lock your car anywhere. The police came by in the night and would sound their siren to clear the loiterers from the front of the motel.
