noisy motel

This hotel was the worst the train horns go off every 20 min and to close to expressway!! I felt like every time I fell asleep I would get woken by some noise. I reserved a king and check in at 430 and was told they didn't have any king rooms left..

You get what you pay for.

It was just a quick one night on the road stop. The beds were clean and comfortable. The room itself was not exceptionally clean. Picked up sunflower seed shells by the bed on the carpet. Had to plug in a Cpap machine for sleeping and when we moved the nightstand ............behind it was very dirty. Pop had been spilled on the nightstand and it was very sticky. Had to do a little cleaning before I could sleep here. as stated you get what you pay for.

fine hotel near highway 80

I was driving along highway 80 and needed a place to stay. This Motel 8 was fine. Checkin was not very friendly, but the room was very clean and had a little coffee maker. The clerk the next morning was friendly, and on the whole it was a fine stay.

Don't judge a book by its cover.

This place doesn't look like much on the outside but the rooms are actually quite nice. There was room to park my truck and there's a cafe down the block and across the street called CK's was great.

The furniture was in bad shape. No ice in either machine on the ground floor. This was at 5 in the afternoon.

Extremely clean, great bargain

The hotel has no amenities, but the room is one of the cleanest I've stayed in, and the price is right. I highly recommend it for those on a budget.
