I stayed in this hotel in Feb, I would not recommend anybody. You can get a better hotel at the same price.The rooms were dirty even after changing two rooms we felt that it is of no use. The owner of the hotel is an extremely rude and impudent person.He used to calculate no of muffins people take and ask...

First I arrived at midnight and thr receptionist was nice. We got our room and the door wouldn't. Missplaced bolt...they changed rooms. Then in te new one the air extractor's vent was half off the ceiling. The Remote didn'work and when they came to check it a "new box" they had recently installed in very old very big analogue televisions...

This hotel is on the lower end of the spectrum - not a place you would take your wife or girlfriend. It is a bare bones, low budget accommodation -- no frills, just a room with basic amenities (bed, tv, restroom, etc.) it is fine if you just need a place to sleep at a reasonable price; if you are...

I had a reservation months in advance. I was called the week of arrival and told they would not honor It, but I could have a room for $50 more--take it or leave it. When I arrived there after a 14 hr drive, I gave them my original reservation. I was again told it would not be honored. When I...

I made a reservation in this hotel for 5 nights, but did my check out after staying the first one, it was awful , smells so bad, needs a lot o maintenance, very old, noisy because is very close to the highway. Don't stay there.

Owner or manager double parks her luxury sports cars and thereby hogs parking on the crowded upper lot. She came off as very condescending during my conversations with her during check in. Location is good if you want to walk around the city. The Ethiopian restraunt next door is tasty. The room was ok, but I would have liked newer...

I have stayed here multiple times and will again in the future! I was a nursing student and needed to be close to St. David's Hospital (which is right next store, you could walk there!). It looks like a small, older, Mom and Pop Motel but, it will suit your needs nicely! It has a small parking lot and sits...

This hotel is literally on the access road therefore, very noisy. There is no adequate parking and once parked, you could barely back out. They said they were pet friendly so I paid a pet deposit and an extra $10 per night however, there was absolutely no place to take the dog out. I had to walk around the building...

Other than close to downtown, this hotel is in a terrible location. No sufficient parking, right on the interstate access road (and i do mean RIGHT on). Pool was nasty. Room was clean, but not at all comfortable. And the AC was not turned on, even though we had made prior reservations, and it took over 2 hours to get...

Pathetically dirty inn. Needs some serious upgrades. Based on previous reviews, the owner doesn't seem to care. Proximity to downtown is probably the only positive here. Worst $110 I've ever spent. Avoid at all costs!
