Bad noisy not what I expected no iron & ironing board

Do not believe what the advertising shows about this property. Upon checking in I was told not to use booking sites next time in area, just show up and pay in cash. I needed to stay a day later and come in a day earlier. I paid for the 2 extra days upon check in and the other days were charged through Orbitz. She was very instant in paying in cash. I paid with a card to have a record and glad I did. They tried to say our check out was Sunday and not Monday. Once I got that straightened out - wife took the payment for the two days and not recorded it. They rented the room on Monday and people were trying to get in before check out. Now about the property. I knew the advertised breakfast would be something like a box of Corn Flakes and coffee but no such luck. I went to the front desk the next morning to get coffee and was told the advertising on Orbitz was incorrect and they had been trying to get it changed. The room smelled of urine. I went and got a bottle of febreze and 2 air fresheners to help me stand the smell. I used the entire bottle while there and set the solid air freshener on the ac unit and had a bottle of spray to use immediately. The beds were ok but they do not change the sheets daily or during the entire stay there (in on Wednesday left on Monday). My best recommendation is to stay somewhere else. In your car in the parking lot of a gas station would be better than this pit. Amenities at this location were tv, small refrig and 2 cups of coffee.

Very nice and clean. Bed was made. Fresh toilettrjes

My experience was ok. The staff is great very friendly

Not in a good area and looks nothing like pictures on website.

We checked in. Stayed for about half hour. Went to dinner. Came back and checked out. Horrible colors on the walls. Zero artwork - just felt "creepy" is the only way to put it. Filthy carpets. Towels that were closer to sandpaper than towels. Horrible, inescapable smell in the room (moth balls?). Filthy entry and stairway leading to second floor room. After dinner there were people hanging out with lawn chairs next to their cars, listening to music, smoking, drinking, etc. My daughter and I did not feel safe.

The Hotel rate was very affordable and the Staff could be more present in the front Dess the rooms could be more sanitize but other then that my stay was great.

Room was clean, it was my reservation through Orbitz that was the problem

I had a reservation elsewhere and when i went to check in at the 3pm time it said i was told no rooms were ready that i could try back in an hour or 2 so i left and looked online and found this hotel that had rooms ready right then and there. I was very happy and went and checked in which took about 5 minutes and the staff was great

older motel... a little worn & weary... allows pets but absolutely no place to walk my dog.... 1 tiny strip of grass ok for the price

Wouldnt recommend the stay ever again. There were to much illegal activity roaming around the rooms and women soliciting too

the room smell from the carpet and the bed was low ,a very flat mattress, but the bath was clean very and this was very good oh something was inside of the wall running on the 2nd night.
