I ended up here via an express deal on Hotwire where the identity of the hotel is not revealed until after payment has been made. Excellent price of $56 + tax of $14. This is an older 1950's style motel. Pretty shabby on the outside but my room was fine: Very clean, with queen sized bed + refrigerator + microwave. Very satisfied for the price.

There were only three good things to say about this place. Friendly front office, it was quiet and the bed was comfortable. We brought our own pillows. First of all, it is not a B &B. Secondly, the pictures shown on the website must be one of the newly renovated rooms. The sign out front makes you think that ALL have been renovated, but obviously, not. We saw two rooms, 109 and 126, haven't been renovated to the standards shown in the website pictures. I should have taken more pictures but the ones shown by another reviewer are very similar to what we saw. First, they put us in 109, we were appalled, vinyl flooring, not well laid; only a bed with side tables with lamps and a wooden chair and dresser. Broken blinds, no screens on two windows and torn screen on the bathroom window. Since the air conditioner wasn't working they put us in 126. That was in slightly better condition. That room had a nicer laid vinyl floor, a desk plus the other furniture that 109 had, as well as the broken blinds, missing and torn screens. There was a dead spider in the corner, which stayed there the two days we were there. The shower head came out of a large hole in the wall and there was broken tile. Dirty walls and unfinished molding around the AC. The second day we left at 8 AM returning at 4 PM. The room was not made up. So when we asked if we were supposed to make our own bed, the office manager called someone to do it, but that was it. They did not empty the trash, replace the coffee cups and coffee amenities or sweep away the dead spider. Won't be staying there again. Lots of cars in the parking lot, so I guess lots of people don't have an issue with the conditions. You get what you pay for.

I wanted to try this inexpensive ($100 ??) hotel for a one night stay. BED BUGS IN THE BED. I smashed one and took a photo. WIFI is a joke. It works for a minute or two, then down for the rest of the hour. The room was very bare, the bed hard (they claim "pillow top", uh no). The sign out front said "Brand New Units". No it was not new in any respect. Outside the door was an overflowing garbage can chained to the stairs railing (see photos). The lights worked. The Heat/AC worked. The toilet flushed. Not much else good to say. Neighbor comes out and opens the doors to her van and blasts the radio as loud as possible as she loads up her kids, yelling at them to "GET IN THE CAR". You get the picture. Shady lady across the way. I saw more than one gentleman enter her room. I left to find another place to sleep after finding the BED BUG. No refund, no discount. $100 lesson learned. Don't waste your money.

Love this place if you're looking for a simple place and very clean. Good service as well. Affordable place, complimentary items are provided. Will definitely recommend and come again if I am around the area. Great deals for the price. Love it

i was skeptical about this place as i drove into the parking lot. it looked like it might be a dump with monthly tenants. but i was surprised when i saw the room- it was clean, had a fridge and microwave, and lots of windows. and it was a good value on there was also a computer in the lobby to use. the only negatives were that there were only 6 tv channels and one of those was porn!! and the owner is very poor at customer service- he doesn't give consistent or clear answers to questions and definitely gives an attitude that he doesn't want to be bothered by guests. there was also mold on the shower stall ceiling. if you want a room with a microwave, you have to request it.

L'hotel è un posto orribile, sporco e tutto rotto. La camera che ci è stata assegnata (l'unica a sentire la signorina Chin, nonostante il cartello di Vacancy rimanesse acceso di sera) aveva la moquette completamente lercia, i mobili tutti rovinati, una terribile puzza di pipì saliva da sotto il letto. Avevo già soggiornato in quest'hotel 2 anni fa, con un'altra gestione, ma ora è veramente il peggio del peggio. Non ci sono più i telecomandi delle tv, nè i ventilatori in bagno (è rimasto un buco nero lercio). L'ambiente è talmente salubre che in bagno, vicino alla doccia, è cresciuto un fungo! La pulizia in camera ci è stata fatta una settimana dopo l'arrivo perchè l'abbiamo chiesta. Abbiamo avuto per alcuni giorni la doccia fredda e internet non funzionante. Di solito non ho grosse pretese in fatto di hotel, mi basta che sia pulito, visto che sono fuori tutto il giorno. E così era fino a 2 anni fa, quando abbiamo sempre avuto camere grandi, pulite, con tutti i confort. Ma adesso non soggiornrei mai più in quel postaccio. State alla larga!

Quando chegamos nos deram a chave de um quarto que ainda estava sujo, depois de esperarmos 30 min, nos encaminharam para outro quarto. O hotel não tinha boa aparencia. Não recomendo a estadia. When we arrived we were given a key to a room that was still dirty after we wait 30 min, referred us to another room. It had no good looks. We not recommend to stay there.
