Needed a hotel for a swim meet

Got my room key and went to my room which was separate from the main part of the motel. I had to walk past 3 guys who were standing right next to the doors smoking. Got inside and it smelled like Mexican food. Now I love Mexican food, just don't like my hotel room smelling like that AND cigarettes! Got into the room and it was very small and not clean, and also had a broken chain lock. I went back, through the smoking men who were staying in that part of the motel (who also gave me a "cat call" - scared me!) and to the front desk and asked for a room change. The guy at the desk didn't bat an eye and gave me a room in the main part of the motel. I checked it out and was very pleased. It was much nicer and bigger than the other one that, honestly, I would have been petrified to stay in. However, in the new room, I pulled back the comforter and the sheet had an oily stain on it. I slept with a towel over it. However, I mentioned that to the housekeepers and it was changed the next morning right away. So, all in all, at first it wasn't good but they made everything right. I think the rooms just need to be a little bit cleaner, otherwise, for the price, it was good. The staff was great.

Good Grief

Once I checked in (it was dark outside), there was a police officer in the parking lot about 50 feet away that was staring toward me and then he was shining his flashlight at me, That was pretty much a good indication of how my stay would be. The hallways and room were filthy. (The tub and toilet looked the worst.) Wi-Fi- didn't work, and the TV screen had an inadequate picture (very fuzzy on all channels.) You should stay here if you want to hear other guests through the walls and cars coming and going in the parking lot.

Layover

Although close to the airport, i believe this place is in deparate need of updating. It's the old school row rooms remeniscent of a Bates Motel, the hard beds, thin walls (hello nieghbor) and bathroom so small, you don't have to step from the toilet to the tub. It was clean, if you ignore the smell of the previously okayed cigarettes. All in all, if you're in a pinch, I'd suggest staying here. But, I'd suggest paying a couple dollars more and staying next door.

Room for the Night

This hotel is a basic hotel...not many bells and whistles...but perfect for a good night's rest. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful and started my stay on the right footing.

good deal for the money

it was a good deal, but it would've been much better if there was a coffe pot in the room. Long walk in the wintertime across the parking lot to get the first cup in the morning!

Business trip

Hotel staff was very arrogant and not friendly, they also seemed not very knowledgeable and overcharged my card as well as a co workers (more then once) then trying to fix the funds issue was a complete joke. The rooms were clean and comfortable but horrible staff and service. Most likely will never be staying there again.
