The man was courteous for check in, but through a glass window like a bank and he took my driver's license to the back computer, which made me uncomfortable. They should be able to check the name by looking at it, but not take it away from me for a few minutes. The room was just an old motel. The bathroom was dingy, no washcloths. There was a small fridge and a microwave. There were 2 grocery stores and fast food restaurants in walking distance.
Our stay was for the night of Feb 8, 1018. Arrived late about 1030 PM. Check in was not pleasant. Talked to thru glass and multiple ID checks. Room was darkly lit which turned out to be a plus. Found multiple bugs in the bed. Cover on sofa was dirty(tracked in dirt and hair) In the daylight it was worse. The cream colored phone was brown with filth. Had not been cleaned in a long time. Carpet was dirty. Frame around bottom of bathroom door was rotted. The white entry door was filthy, dirt stained. Can not recommend and will not stay at this facility again.
Had a reservation at this hotel and was required to give a debit or credit card number to hold my name under and when I saw the place to see how disgusting it was I went to a different hotel to sleep at and tried cancelling my reservation here when I was told that there was a cancellation fee and was charged $75 and had the guy try to pull it out of my debit card. If you are planning on staying here DON"T.
Don't ever stay here, sleeping in your car would be a better option. A Cockroach and ants found in bed, gross shower, dirty carpets, door would not close properly, horrible smell. And one of the staff had the nerve to accuse me of not telling about my dog and tried to charge me more and when I asked to see it in writing, he quickly hesitated and said nevermind. I'm beyond mortified
low price but a good overnight. the bed was comfortable and the shower was terrific. my room had refrigerator and microwave but no coffee. staff was friendly but hard to find at times, felt like owner was doing many jobs. no breakfast. in the morning it was "drop the key in the slot and go" situation.
The owners were very friendly and quick to accommodate our needs however the room was very rough around the edges - cobwebs, dirty carpet around doorjambs, soap scum in bathtub - and smelled stale. I inquired about their advertised continental breakfast the night that we arrived and was told that breakfast would be put out in the morning (fruit, muffins, coffee), but it never appeared the next morning. They were currently painting the exterior of the inn so hopefully they will extend the renovations to the interior, as well. It's a good price for the budget traveller.
These guys were absolute saints in helping me sort out a pretty ridiculous situation where I booked myself twice for the same room. They must have taken ten calls from the booking agency and twice as many visits from me to the front desk. The room was plenty comfy and had a nice big closet to store things in. The area's obviously hot, so don't come in your winter wardrobe, but the take a dive in the pool and a grab a paleta popsicle and you'll be fine :)
This is a cheap morel so could not expect high quality. The rooms are not clean and the water from the shower would not drain away. They gave us the key to the unoccupied room next so we could use the shower. I am unable to understand why a business can be left to run down.
In December of every year for three years I have used this hotel. The room we usually stay in is a bedroom with a king size bed, microwave and mini-fridge with plenty of storage otherwise. The manager is very accommodating, and the cleaning was done regularly - no complaints! When we visit, we're treated like friends rather than simply customers. Staff is very friendly and very generous. We would definitely use this place again; great value, great service! We picked it initially for the location (in an area close to shopping and food), and in the future we'll pick it because of the service!
I went to check in as previous reservations were made, the desk clerk said they just finished cleaning the room. Upon entry I was disgusted by the filthy shape of the bathroom.Its a cheap hotel so you shouldnt expect much but whe housekeeping cant even run dirt down the drain in shower its pretty bad. Dont take the job if you arent going to do it right. Desk clerk was nice for whatever that does. Skip this place
