Staff was very helpful
Coffee was awful (and we heard this from a number of guests). No-slip strips in the tub were far too sandpapery.
This is definitely an older, but yet clean motel. Small rooms with outdated furniture. A half private bath with the sink separate and in the open.
It was inexpensive
Or toilet clogged and when we asked for maintanenced they said come down get a plunger we were shocked...
Staff was very nice. I just needed a place to crash at an economy price. This hotel was less expensive than all the surrounding ones and was what I needed. It is due for a remodel/upgrade. I did not try the breakfast. Don't expect too much if you stay here and then leave a nasty review. These people are nice, they are doing the best they can with an older building.
This is an outdated hotel. Carpets in room a little dirty. Colors in room clash. Some smoke smell even though I had a non smoking room. At 9:15am they wer.e going door to door like boot camp making sure everyone was out of their rooms. When I left my room every single door to every room was open as I went to check out and the place smelled like a restroom. Spend $25 more if you want something nicer. If you just need to sleep this is an ok hotel:
Non smoking room, but large burns on bedspread. Room floor was dirty and had not been vacuumed. We stayed for two nights and when the room was cleaned after the first night, all of the garbage was left untouched. There were more cigarrette butts then rocks in the outside bushes and parking lot (looked like it had not been picked up in years). The orange juice as almost black in the morning, but the customer service rep tried to tell me it was ok and sometimes orange juice gets dark (again orange - not apple) - really??
Alvin at reception was great, the customer comes first, give him a bonus!. The rooms were clean but the bed was a bit ordinary. Two satchets of real coffee would be good in the rooms? Location is good, easy to find for travellers. Access to meals close by was good. Cheers.
There was a funny smell in hallways etc. Breakfast was fairly limited. Dogs yapping in rooms??? See above
The location and price was perfect for my trip
The smoking rooms could be freshened up with a room spray like some other hotels/motels do. I am a smoker but would like the room to be refreshed. I carry my own spray to help.
