Nicer than I expected for such a low cost. The breakfast was just a few pastries and coffee pot in the office.

It was clean and safe sleeping great close to food and entertainment

Close to downtown. More peaceful than other hotels in the area. Friendly staff

towels missing, beds were not made, meager breakfast front lobby lady was friendly and helpful

When I arrived at 10:30 AM an older man came to the desk. He could not understand English. He called a younger woman. When I tried to register, she made me come back after 3:00. When I came back a younger man said I had only booked for four nights. I said I booked for 5 and he went on for 10 minutes with 4 nights even after I showed my itinerary showed 5.He said there was a breakfast. When I showed up for breakfast he said it was too late,I had to be there before 9:00 AM. When I showed up at 7:30 AM the door was locked and no breakfast was set out. On my last day they had not cleaned my room or made my bed and when informed refused to make my bed. When I asked for a discount, he said he was the owner and he did not remedy the bed making. This was beach of contract. There were cigarette burns on the toilet seat and toilette cover and on my sheets. There were often black marks on my towels and once a large hole my towel. If you want ice you need to walk down the block to another motel down the bock.

I booked my room online from booking.com I paid $96.10 for a room and when I got there it took the lady 10 minutes to come to the front desk. I was never greeted she asked for my ID asked how many people are staying, what car did I drive looked at myself and my friend asked again how many people were staying and then told me there was a $50 cash deposit. I told her I was never notified regarding a $50 deposit I had asked her when did this start and she said today very rude . She was a hair a mess sleep in her eyes and Rude the whole time

HAD A NICE QUIET RELAXED AND SATISFIED STAY IN THIS HOTEL. I LOVE THE FLOOR THEY HAVE IN THE ROOMS. MUCH CLEANER THAN HAVING CARPET. THE ONLY THING I WASN'T HAPPY AND WAS ONE OF THE REASONS I WENT HERE WAS THEY OFFER CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST. BUT WHEN I ASKED THEY TOLD ME THAT BREAKFAST WAS COFFEE AND PASTRIES. THAT'S THE ONLY THING THAT DISAPPOINTED ME. I BOOKED 2 DAYS I ENDED UP STAYING 5 DAYS IN A ROW...TRY IT IT'S A NICE AND AFFORDABLE MOTEL.
