If you're not picky and looking for a clean, quiet room, this place is great! It's older, but has all the comforts of home including a well-maintained pool, large flat-screen TV and WiFi. The price is great for all this little Motel has to offer.

I was told to stay here it's not that bad, it's THAT BAD! my first night they put me in a smoking rooms and told me it was non smoking . Room was filthy and stunk like an old bar. I had to stay again for work I got another room and it juts got worse . People and kids all night long yelling . Garbage everywhere. The beds are old and uncomfortable. All you get at this motel is clean sheets and towels. I have had to listen to fights in rooms from several occupants for 2 days and have not once seen the police! I have been offered drugs and have been begged for cigarettes ,money and beer. I will never ever stay anywhere near this mess again!!!

This place was not fun. In a dumpy neighborhood, but I knew that going in. What I didn't expect was that my door to my room, safeguarding all of my belongings, and ultimately, my own safety didn't lock properly and was easily opened from outside simply by pushing it open. Alerted staff and they upgraded me to the "nicest room they have" and it was equally a dump. Smelled like human urine. Cheap rates, but not cheap enough. Staff was friendly enough though.

First of all the staff there is very rude. With no type of customer service experience. And the rooms are very dirty. Never had someone come and make the bed. The place was so dirty I really regret staying there. Definitely WON'T GO BACK!

Fire alarm hanging from the ceiling, carpets are dirty, windows drapery dirty and stains, two qeen size beds are not comfortable - you can feel the springs - those beds should have been toss long time ago but they still using it, bathtub and toilet so dirty and the area doesn't fell safe - they have a security guy on site.

Better off sleeping in your car. Foul smell, lights don't work, A/C old and in poor condition, stains on carpet and chairs. Outside dirty and with questionable people. Bates Hotel would be better. ..................................

Basically for those with interesting flavors of amusement or conditions which require experienced levels of appreciation for your own personal use whether you are a truck driver or traveling salesman looking for a weekend fantasy island....This is the place to rest your neck in desired settings...

I had a nice stay, it wasn't luxury, but it was clean and comfortable and that's what I wanted all for a great price, especially given that the other hotels in the near vicinity were so much more expensive.

Even as a truck driver I had to cringe. Stains on floors, repaired holes in walls, rooms stink, heat/ac that was destroyed, fuzzy channels on the tv. The water temp on shower was backwards and didn't stay hot for long. This place needs to be condemned. They said hookers out front all night so I didn't bother leaving the room. If you stay here your a crack head yourself. And at 56$ a night CDL rate I got a great chuckle that the door says they charge $60-120 a night to abuse their customers. About the only nice thing I could say is the night attendant is plesant

other than the location nothing nice there was flies I would kill 2 and 3 would come out of who knows where but it was ok for only being there for a couple of hours..there is also a lot of noise lots of truckers not the best place to stay but the price and the location was convenient at the time.
