Now there are homeless encampments outside the hotel on the street in front, leading to the hotel. A couple of years ago there were just a few people living on the streets, now there are many! Have tarp roofs, etc. The intersection daily has homeless people rotating through. We used to stay here when we were snowed out or evacuated.... More

ASK FOR THE POOL SIDE! Trains are on the hill side. Maids need to learn how to clean. Bathtub had mold around the bottom of the soap dish and the release for the bathtub drain. This hotel suffers from lack of care. Stayed here in the past and the breakfast has gone down hill along with the hotel. On the... More

This was the most expensive place we stayed in on our trip from arkansas. My husband has stayed there many times and says it has gotten worse each time. The curtains were falling down and maintenance had to come pin them closed. On the bright side, staff was very friendly, especially the maintenance man. We were in town for a... More

Adequate for a nights stay while traveling home. Room was large and quiet from others in hotel. Nothing fancy but clean. Bed comfortable. Free breakfast was limited. It was mainly cerals, breads, donuts, and fruit. Only protein was boiled eggs and milk. Staff efficient but lacked friendliness. Again, economical stay on the way home.

It's a place to lay your head at night. Breakfest dry cereal, toast, day old donuts, and something they called oatmeal. Don't drink the coffee. Homeless encampment at the bottom of the hill where you enter. AWESOME margaritas at the Mexican cantina by the motel six will make you sleep well at this run down old place. Enjoy

4 floors. I was on the top floor. Pool was getting serviced for summer so we were unable to use it. Require a $100 deposit no matter what on top of the price of the room. Rooms are spacious, older style. Almost looks like they threw together stuff from yard sales. Has fridge and coffee pot. They serve breakfast although... More

Everything in the room worked as it should. Room was clean and bathroom was sparkling clean. Staff was very courteous. The hotel was very quiet and the free offered breakfast was great with ample selections. Will stay there again

This room was gross and the customer service was just as bad! The sheets were dirty and ripped. Everything was falling apart. There was more than one cigarette burn.. There was a light bulb missing. I could go on on... Stay away… one entry and exit point. They even made me give them a 100$ cash deposit
