If you prefer economy, then this is OK. If you are used to nice hotels, this is not the choice

It was easily the worst place I have ever stayed. It was so bad that even though I paid for three nights, I finally just left and went someplace else. I tried to find a room the first night some place else, but everything was booked. I would never suggest anyone stay there.I doubt the rug had been shampooed in years. There was one bar of soap for the sink and the shower, and the second day it was still the only soap. Just a dump.

Need to readjust its rooms add iron,coffee maker,new beds,and clothes hangers. And breakfast area.

The staff at this motel was kind and friendly, but that's the only good thing I have to say about it. The carpet felt spongy and damp. Despite posted no smoking signs, there were always a few people smoking just outside the door, and our room and the corridor smelled strongly of cigarette smoke.

Hotel was in good location and met our needs. Overall was a good stay. As always, refrigerator and microwave in rooms were appreciated, so was the free breakfast.

I first got a non smoking room but it smells very bad and I got a better one. these are just ok rooms but good value for money though.

This hotel is a place to sleep, but that is about all. Not very clean, but it works

Dirty. Old food in fridge. Wouldn't give an extra pillow

Room was dirty. There was still food from previous guests in fridge. Comforter had cigarette burns. Smelled bad. The bed was incredibly hard and sagged at the end. I called the front desk for an extra pillow and was told the manager wasn't there to authorize it...

this motel was disgusting room was very unclean to the point where we were worried about catching something off the floor we wore our shoes all the time in room it felt sticky and very dirty, the air filter was thicker than thick, the tv stand had human urine on it and we had to throw away all our food we sat on that shelf, we told manager about it and he made us clean it ourself. the pool was even closed and it was 66 degrees out. overall, it was just a terrible experience and i would NEVER ever recommend or even think to stay there EVER again. so so so so so bad. thank god we didnt have our children with us!!!! and the desk staff was rude and VERY unhelpful!

Easy to get to it was close to highway and airport. If you need to do any shopping the mall is across the street. If your looking for a affordable place and aren't to picky this is the place.

This hotel is close to the airport and highway. Very convenient and affordable. It's also close to the the mall for easy shopping.

the hotel was clean located near the airport but not near any good restaurants like Denny's or other breakfast places. Noise was heard from the road, airport and the hallways.

The hallways smelled like weed the whole time and the smell even came into my room a few times resulting in giving me a headache I informed the staff but they didn't do anything about it

I came down to shop for a couple of days and wanted a cheap hotel, close to shopping. The location is great. The pool is very nice. I walked across the street and went to a couple of local restaurants and to the mall. I was not out after dark. The only thing that really bothered me was the guests who might be 'living' there. They hung outside by the pool, smoking all the time and by the parked cars, smoking and talking until late in the night. I found myself looking out the window routinely to make sure that they were staying away from my car--I parked by my window. Bed was OK. Had cable. Air worked well. All is all, not bad for the money. Only big complaint is the occupants that 'hung' out for the two days I was there and made me feel a little uncomfortable/nervous.

Physically, the motel's in great condition -- room was clean, everything was in order. The location is fine and close to the airport. The issue is the staff, specifically the security guard. He bangs on hotel rooms throughout the night. If he comes to your room, you're treated as guilty until proven innocent. It's like living in a dorm, and the security is some overzealous RA.

i will never book a room that is a cheap rate if i do not call to see if people are living there!! i feel bad for them but it was a run down place with doors that were not secured ever people obviously smoking in non smoking rooms it was thick in halls i should have paid five dollars more a night and stayed at super 8 at least

I stayed there one night while on business, it was absolutely disgusting. The sheets were dirty and contained pubic hairs. I slept on top of the blankets. The pillows were dirty and I slept on my arm. The other rooms were very loud. After a brief 6 hour "nap", I went to take a shower, there was no shampoo (unlike any other motel). Over poor stay, but I guess what do yo expect for forty bucks.

The hotel was not clean and it was noisly most of the night. Curtains were not placed correctly so everyone on the street can see you while you are sleeping

In town for graduation. Wish we would of discovered this place 4 years ago !
