Cockroaches in bed

If you wish to stay at this hotel, find another. The room I was checked into had roaches... not one...or two, but I was awoken to roaches covering my pillows and crawling on me. Horrified, I left the room at 2:30am only to be moved to 4 other rooms that either didn't have working air conditioning or some other problems. This hotel should be torn down and rebuilt. Very outdated and unclean. You'd probably have less bugs on you if you slept outside the rooms.

Should be shut down!

This motel is a disaster. It is located in a frantic, noisy, decrepit area. Both the exterior and interior is run down and falling apart. The door handles don't work, the key cards won't open the door (I had to get two replacements) and furniture and fixtures are broken. The bed looked like it had been slept in! I wish I had paid a few bucks more and found a peaceful, clean, sanitary place to stay.

No place to take the wife and kids

Even though the rooms were designated non-smoking you could definitely smell the odor of smoking in the room. The rooms badly needed painting, the bathroom toilet reservoir was cracked, the shower curtain and floor of the tub looked mildewed and the carpet by the sink was wet from a leak whose source couldn't be determined. We decided to go eat breakfast at a restaurant rather than eat the free breakfast available because the eating area didn't look very inviting. I can see why the motel would charge $171 if the reservation was canceled after 4 PM 2 days prior to the reservation. If it wasn't for the exorbitant cancellation fee ( about 1/2 of our $333 2 day cost) we would have found another room elsewhere. In short the only thing that I would suggest is that the motel be torn down and rebuilt from the ground up because its beyond being renovated.

Tired of bad rooms

The room was reasonably clean. The and pillows need replaced!! Furniture was very worn and the room was not quiet. The milk was sour at breakfast and they made the orange juice with hot water!! I wouldn't recommend staying here.

Tired of poor rooms

The bed needed a new mattress and new pillows. It was cleaned but anitquated. Not a good nights sleep! The breakfast was not that good either. The milk was sour and the guy made the orange juice with hot water!! I would not recommend this place.

Good price for just an overnight stay.

The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The only complaint is that at 9am, when we got up, my husband went to get ice for his thermos and the breakfast was already gone and cleaned up. The clerk never told me at check in when it started. We were a little surprised it was already gone at 9am. Otherwise it was a satisfactory stay.
