Upon arriving the check in process was quick. The room appeared OK. The bathroom ceiling was full of dust bunnies and the sink faucet was not attached. The air conditioner did not function properly and when it ran for the brief time that it pushed out cold air it sounded like an air compressor. It would run for about 1 1/2 minutes and then shut off and blow out warm air. The towels were very stained and may or may not have still been dirty. You could see light come in underneath the entry door of the room. It smelled like the room had been smoked in for years. There were people banging on the doors to the rooms around us very late into the evening. It looked as if some of the guests were permanent and not just there for a short visit. Overall I was not impressed and would not recommend staying here.

It was dirty, the pool had no water in it, it was noisy, it smelled in the room found it at work. On the bright side, we did not get mugged or killed.

This hotel was dirty, smoky, bugs, lipstick writing on the mirror, disgusting. We went in and came back out and turned in our key. Did not stay the night. Also, even though advertised, there was no shuttle from the airport and no free breakfast. Pictures on website look nothing like the actual hotel. Absolutely gross!!!!

Horrible property. Hookers and druggies LIVE there. There was police action 3 rooms down. It was filthy, the sink was plugged up and the room drank of smoke residue. I did not feel safe nor comfortable.

The staff was helpful rooms were clean made my stay awsome i would stay there again

Long slow check-in, room lacking supplies (Kleenex, drinking glasses)

Breakfast was okay Everything else was bad, Very dirty, smelly... down right gross...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was great, spacious and clean

The staff were very helpful and plan polite. The location was ok. The motel was quite dated but it was clean and serviceable.

Rooms don’t have standards, they don’t even know which ones have showers vs baths. Not all have hairdryers, very unorganized and bad quality.

I overpaid for this place due to spring baseball training. Nothing I can do about that. Every other hotel was booked so this was my only option. Room was to be expected for what it is. Nothing fancy or close to a Marriott or Hilton. Where my room and experience falls short is I had bird crap in my room. Not just a little crap. I’m talking a ton of bird crap. Unacceptable. Can’t recommend.

This property is old and run down and, therefore, hard to really judge cleanliness. The bathroom mirror had smears on it, the sink stopper did not work, and the sink did not drain. Ick! When I arrived, there was not a glass or cup in the room, nor extra toilet paper. I could not call the desk from the room telephone so I had to walk to the lobby.

Ok hotel. Room was older and sorta smokey. Carpets were dirty in the room and had a dirty couch. Bed was good. It it what it is for the price and location.
