Disappointed. Floor didn't feel clean was sticky, room was cold and damp, beds very squeaky, 1 smelled like wet dog. Didn't sleep on sheets but on top covering covered with jacket. Great had mini fridge, microwave, table and chairs. Glad 2 beds as only 2 flat pillows per bed, Low water pressure, broken shower thing, no hot water sink, tap sprayed. No hair dryer or tea/coffee as stated.

Not sure what we were expecting given the price. When I checked in there were serious language barriers. They took my ID which is fine, but two of them spoke in some foreign language while pointing at different areas of my drivers license. Probably nothing, but it was uncomfortable to say the least. Another gentleman came in behind me and neither of the pair looked up to acknowledge him. Basic customer service failures.

The room was okay. The size was good, included a table and two chairs, but it was poorly lit and smelled strange. Furniture is in dire need of an update or refurbishment. When I sat on the couch it kicked up a cloud of dust. Minimal blankets, only two pillows, with no option for more despite request, which was weird.

It's just as well that this wasn't a business trip for me. The wi-fi connection was beyond awful, cutting in and out every five minutes for up to an hour at a time. Would have been hellish trying to read and reply to e-mails. On top of that - I'm not sure what kind of wizardy they're working in there, but not one of the outlets seemed to work on my devices. Phone. Laptop. Table. Nothing worked, even in the same outlets that the (working) lamps and TV were plugged into.

Room was unclean but it was quiet enough to sleep in. Despite the odd smell, chipped paint, dirty shower, crappy wi-fi and lack of electricity it was fairly quiet until about 11:00P.M. and quietened down around 1:00A.M. and made for a reasonably decent sleep.

This place should be shut down. If your looking for drugs or an escort then stay here, the place is full of them. And the attendance response, "they paid just like you did". It's fun to have taxis and drunks stopping by every half hour or so to get their fix. It's nice when they argue, slam doors and screen. The cops should open an office is this place.

We did not have a good feeling for the place at all, The room was plain but OK. Some of the regular clientele leave a lot to be desired. This place appears to be a motel/low rental property. The first clue that we should not have stayed was the apparent drug dealing going on the in the parking lot. Cars were coming and going at all hours and that was another issue. The following morning we woke to the police dealing with a homeless person right outside the motel. We had a quick chat with them and as a courtesy to a member from one law enforcement agency to another they suggested we find somewhere better to stay as this area is not a good one. We could not have agreed more. The owners of the hotel appear to know what is going on but choose to ignore it. We requested our money back, and while they called and appeared to be willing to compromise, nothing came out of it. For some folks this place may be alright, but for us, it was the worst accommodations of our entire trip.

The rooms were very tidy, the beds were comfy, looked like new paint on the walls. Older style rooms but saw no bugs or had any weird smells. AC worked great, parking out front of rooms, convenient off the highway, gas station & small restaurants close by. Asked the staff about doing laundry the one man said in the basement which was more then creepy! We did our laundry but realized people live in the basement & rent rooms. The kitchen/laundry room was community kitchen which was disgusting it had dirty walls, floors, smelled of smoke, dead bugs everywhere & not to mention the 8 camera's watching you. If you don't go to the basement it seems like a very descent place for the price/location.

Our room was dark and musty. The bathroom tiles were chipping of and the bathroom floor was sticky. We turned on the shower and had to wait over 3 minutes before getting any hot water. I would never stay here again.

I booked this hotel because of its approximately to the event I was attending. For the price I paid, I wasn't expecting much. But was I in for a surprise......! My room was immaculate clean, with not only microwave & fridge but also a couch, table & 2 chairs plus a large work table. Did I mention that the bed was extremely comfortable? My whole experience was hassle-free........ from the friendly telephone reservation, ease of checking in & out. I also noticed that the owners take a lot of pride in their property by keeping it in tip-top shape as much as possible. Highly recommend to my friends and others.

We stayed her for three days. Room was clean and looks to have been recently updated. Room is of a good size, has queen bed, desk, dresser, sofa, fridge, microwave and table with two chairs. Outside doesn't look the best but we had no problems. Parking lot is small.
