It is simply the worst place I have ever stayed. The staff don't care. Everything is bad

Hotel staff were friendly. Good recommendation for where to eat. The hotel is older and in need of renovation.

When we walked into the room, the beds were messy as if someone had been sitting on the beds. The room smelled really bad. We ended up leaving and getting a room at Motel 6 because everything else in town was booked. Motel 6 was clean and did not smell. We did not get a refund because i paid through Orbitz.

A sub-standard motel. Room smelled bad, bathroom fixtures broken or missing. Hotel staff surly. Breakfast dismal. Ended up here bc booked a hotel with Expedia, but got there and they had no room available. Thanks Expedia. Orbitz -- consider removing this hotel from your offerings -- it is not worth what we paid to stay here.

Not bad. Lot of contractors but the premises were clean and tended to. Staff friendly.

too disgusting a smelly room & not clean, fly also in there. All of my clothes get bad smell from there& when I back home,I washed all my clothes twice. No way to go back again.

We had a little over a week stay. The hotel needs some work. When we booked our room, it was advertised that there is a pool. The pool was broken/closed all but one day of our stay. There are a lot of permanent residents living there and they sat outside in lawn chairs a lot. Heard from a local restaurant that there are drug busts there pretty often. Comforting..... The cleaning people came as early as 9am. even though check-out time is 11am. Did not appreciate being woken up by one knock and then entrance to our room. Room needs updating/new fixtures/fixing. Bathroom shower spigot had continuous leak, toilet ran continuously, no alarm clock or coffee pot, only two towels in room so had to ask for more and was given only two more (there were three of us). Beds were super hard and woke up sore every day. Big disappointment.

No problems. A good nights sleep and a shower is really all that's necessary! We will stay again if the opportunity arises.

needs some updating in bathroom. towels thin and we'll used.

Seemed seedy. Possible drug/prostitution. Electrical outlets done like an amateur. Had to ask for toilet paper and towels. Hot breakfast is a waffle.

This is an older motel with better than average amenities, but the odor from years of being a smoking room, now nonsmoking, made the stay distasteful. One starts to second guess if the sheets really are clean - they were whether the shower/toilet had been cleaned - they had whether it was safe to walk barefoot - I decided to stick with socks. The bedspread had a number of stains that looked fresh so we did put that in the corner. Heating/Cooling is older and noisier, TV is older and fuzzy, but the internet, microwave, and refrigerator worked as expected. We have stayed in other places in Lewiston for about the same price without the smell. I would opt for a different motel next time.

No internet, not clean, flies in the lobby and flies in the room, parking lot dirty, cigarette butts everywhere etc etc

A budget motel in a pinch that did the basic job. Staff was friendly and helpful when they failed to receive a notice about my already paid reservation, effectively giving me the benefit of the doubt allowing me to stay for free from their perspective. Continental breakfast helped get me on my way. Neighborhood is stark and industrial, with a few dive bars, but across the street past the sporting good store is an obscure entrance to the river park, green space, bike path, and levee with great views of the river and hills. That was worth the stay. Nice place to walk, run, or play with a dog.

Show up at 11:36am and room is not clean or ready. Front desk attendant (zack) said to come back in a half hour. He said early check in is at 1 pm. If you know we are coming in from out of state and paid in full already.....the room should be ready, especially with a 11am check out. Exterior is in need of updating and pool fits maybe a dozen people if there not swimming (The pool was like a glorified over sized hot tub). Turns out, its under new management (Emily?) was more than accomidating. Zack was friendly and helpfull and the two maids they did still have working were busy and officiant though a little slow. We showed up at a little after 11:30 am and did not get a room until after 3pm. She did upgrade us to a king for free and was more than willing to tell us to come to them with anything. We get in the room and it was clean, smelled clean and the only issue I had was with the bed cover....comforter. It was fixed with in five minutes with a smile and an appoligy plus a clean comforter. Breakfast was nothing great and there was no milk for the cereal, coffee but no juice and that was the extent of the offerings. I will not be staying here again with out having seen the issues fixed with my own eyes.

The wife and I was in Lewiston for that night and the next day. As far as the room. The room smelled like wet carpet. We had checked in the afternoon. Checked out were the room was, went in the room for a short time, at which time I smelled the odor, some what like urine. The room looked clean. There was no issue expect the smell. We then went back to town. Late that night when we returned to the room. There was the strong smell. We almost left then. When we checked out. I told the clerk at the desk about the smell. He acted as if it was no big deal, almost like as if I had the issue. He stated he would tell the cleaning crew when he seen them. I would be very hard pressed to stay another night at that hotel.

We stayed here because it was a quick trip and we figured anywhere would do since we wouldn't be at our hotel much. Next time I will pay a little more to stay elsewhere. Pros: The price The staff (very friendly & helpful) Cons: Noise (right next to 3 bars whose music we heard thumping all night long. Mattresses (thin and literally falling apart in our room) Repair (our bathroom door would not latch closed) Clientel (not to make snap judgements of others, but there were some interesting people hanging around, and I felt compelted to check on my car in the parking lot a few times throughout the nigt)

The motel was easy to find, the staff were friendly and helpfull. the room was clean and the beds were a little hard, but good. The cont. breakfast was as good as any motel up to the $100 range.

This was everything I was looking for. No frills, but at the very low price I paid, it was better than I expected. Room was clean, with a fridge and microwave I didn't expect. My only complaint (and a very minor issue in my opinion) is the very thin walls. I can typically hear everything going on within 25 feet of the room. Still, well worth the price and I will likey be back.

Beds were comfortable, AC worked well. TVs are a bit outdated and small, but they have decent picture quality. Location is good and easy to find. Turning left into their parking lot is a bit difficult, so if you are heading towards Clarkston it't a bit easier to pass the motel and turn around so you can turn right.

You get what you pay for. I stayed 3 nights Lewiston smells at night. Breakfact was bread or cereal. Beds were comfortable. Tub filled up during shower. Cops were there to deal with someone one morning when I came out to get breakfast. Wifi was slow. Second day they didn't clean the room. But for avout $45 a night you shouldn't expect more. And the smell would be the same wherever you stayed in Lewiston.
