Least Expensive for a Reason

Would not recommend Sun, Mar 2, 2014
Older small motel. Rooms were clean but that's about it. The owners seem to be trying to spruce it up but there's not much to be done given the old design. Noisy with I 10 but very convenient to downtown. Will not return.

Not Happy!

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 29, 2013
I am so angry I could scream. This motel was dirty and disheveled, the so-called continental breakfast area could only accommodate 4 people at a time, and the posted rate was 30% less than what we paid. This was not surprising, since most of the other patrons seemed to be there by the hour. If you don't mind coming home to pimps in the parking lot waiting for their "employees" to finish their jobs, then it might not be so bad. The owners were very nice, and I really felt kind of sorry for them, but I would not recommend this motel to my worst enemy. Sorry.

Dining

Spaghetti Warehouse - good food, large portions, reasonable prices and nice atmosphere.

Great location to the downtown children's museum and aquarium. Had a good variety of breakfast items just not much space in the lobby to eat. Not bad if you are just looking for a place to crash at night.

Would recommend Thu, Dec 1, 2011
Pros-The rooms were more than I had expected very nice furniture and I didn't notice until the second day that they had three pillows of all different kinds. Soft and fluffy, one of a firmer pillow, and then the third was I nice big body pillow. The was very clean and not disgusting. Cons-The breakfast was horrible. They had very not so polite staff. Those are my only complaints.

It is a functional two star motel.

Would not recommend Mon, Nov 7, 2011
Did not love this place and would not recommend it to anyone unless they had no other option. Bed and pillows were really REALLY soft, the towels and washcloths were stained and scratchy, the A/C smelled moldy which explained the funky stink in the room, the noise from the road was non-stop. Overall cleanliness was okay, but furnishings and paint were obviously old. For $68 a night I expect a lot more.

Vietnam Restaurant had delicious, reasonably priced meals, fabulous service, BYOB.
