Ok for a shower and overnight rest

The hotel had a stench...the smell was not a clean smell. The sheets on the bed were wrinkled. The hotel needs updating. The staff was helpful, nice and polite. We were gone from the room more than we were there & we didn't pay much for the room so we didn't complain.

This place has really gone down hill

I have stayed at this place a couple of times in the past. It was never the best, but I always left pleased with my stay. Not this time. As soon as I walked in the room I noticed the heavy smell of tobacco despite it supposed to be a smoke-free room. It, therefore, came as no surprise when the first thing I saw when I walked up to the bed was cigarette burns on the bed cover. I quickly threw that of the bed. That's when I discovered that the room had not been cleaned since there was a dirty bowl by the bed and some cereal thrown about. I was too tired to leave so I decided to take a shower and go to bed. The bathroom was not any cleaner ( low water pressure, peeling walls, grimy shower curtain).

Very pleased

This was a cheaper hotel so I was very pleased with it when we saw how good it was. Had hairdryer, iron, microwave, fridge, nice comfortable bed and pillows. Was clean. It isn't a fancy hotel and does need some updates BUT for the cost it was perfect.

This place is a health hazard!

This was the WORST hotel I've ever stayed at. It was beyond filthy. The previously white grout on the bathroom floor was black, the sheets had stains, the curtains had cigarette burns even though they claimed it was a non-smoking room, the comforter had holes in it, the air conditioner nob was broken so you couldn't control the room temperature, the carpet looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in months, and to top it off they gave us dirty towels that were still wet with hair on them!! The manager acted like this wasn't a problem. That's a health hazard. I'm pretty sure nobody would like to use a towel someone else has already put on their body. It's disgusting and wrong. The manager refused to give us new towels because he said they ran out! We asked for a refund and he refused that too. He's despicable and has zero care or concern for his customers health or happiness. I highly suggest this place be shut down it has to be in violation of health codes.

Good breakfast

This motel is perfectly adequate, and a good value for the price. Had I not booked through a booking service, I would have paid even less.

Disappoinrws

I have always been happy, but this time the room door at 9 pm was not closed and a light was on. I almost didn't go in. Alone and a woman is scary. The staff didn't seem too concerned. The floors were a mess - trashy. They were working on a room across the hall and the smell and noise was before 8 am. I will not be going back again.

Good for a night's sleep

I only am there at bedtime. The staff is great and I feel comfortable being by myself.
