Zero maintenance done on this old place. Dirty. Tiny rooms. Skid row neighbourhood I had to tighten the door plate with a screwdriver as it was falling off. My truck was stolen right outside my window. Staff offered to let me stay extra night to catch bus after 2am, then rescinded the offer when the cross shift came in. Not...

Older hotel. In process of upgrading. Seemed like an oil hotel but was quiet due to economy. Renovated rooms. Breakfast simple. Beds comfortable. Liked the flooring. Had a small patio which was nice..

Do not stay here! Rooms are not cleaned. The strippers stay in the rooms closest to the lobby. This motel should be shut down and condemned. The whole place smells of cigarettes. The owners allow drugs im the rooms. They dont care about who stays there and whay they do in tje rooms They just want a room sold. The...

This place was filthy. there was mold in the bathroom, the under side of the bed was never vacuumed, the toilet had feces stains on it. I would not stay as I have a four year old that likes to play on the floor and I was worried what she would pick up and I would never bathe her in...

It wasn't luxurious but it was perfect for us. We were travelling with three adults and three children, the beds were comfy and there was a great kitchenette. The balcony was huge and the bathroom was adequate. The continental breakfast was a great surprise! And the staff was very, very nice!

Arrived very late at night with a lot of luggage. They wanted a $200 deposit, they have signs posted warning you of this. It appears that they placed me in an area where my late arrival would not affect others. That is good service. The room was very clean and had an ironing board. I'm not much of a fan...

I was unhappy with my stay due to fact management was very poor, they didn't seem to care about anything I had concerns about. The kitchenette didn't have any cutlery or dishes. When I asked for a pan it took 3 days to get one. They also gave me a SOS pad to clean my dishes with when I asked...

I've stayed at several hostels and motels before and this place was by far, the filthiest out of all of them. So I'm not terribly picky about where I stay but I wish I had slept in my car instead. My bed sheets and towels were stained, the shower curtain was stained, the floor was disgusting, I found a woman's...
