This place is great, its 8 minutes from the capital and the rooms are all redone and modern. Nice tile bathroom and walk in shower with flat screen tvs. No extras like a pool but for the price i found it to be one of the best deals in the city.

I stopped at this older hotel because I was on a budget the owner was also the manager and was very helpful showing me the room in advance. The room was newly remodeled as was the entire hotel including the well lit parking lot etc.. The room is small, but very comfortable. Nice flat screen TV, new environmental control unit,... More

Not gonna stay there again. I was looking for inexpensive, I got cheap! The room reminded me of a basement bedroom. Cracking paint, rusty bathroom faucets, poor poor lighting throughout! Questionable kind of neighborhood. We locked the door and stayed inside. Not a friendly kind of place.

The young man working was very nice and let me check in early when he saw me waiting in the parking lot. He asked if I wanted a first or second floor room. My room was on the first floor and I was surprised how updated the inside is. Everything smelled/looked new. Very modern look which appealed to me. Unfortunately... More

Not much to look at from the outside but rooms have been remodeled. They are clean, have flat screen tv, basic rooms at a good price. Some have fridge but you should ask for a room with one if needed. On a main road so some noise but didn't bother us with ac on. No extra's except ice, no lounge... More

It's hard to rate a motel properly. It really has only a place to sleep and an excellent innkeeper. The room was newly remodeled and had a firm bed, nice sized shower and shower head, TV, and the motel as a whole is clearly in process of upgrades/remodeling. It is on a fairly busy road way, but that didn't impede... More

It's currently undergoing a renovation and at its current state, it's a place you might drive right past. But don't judge a book by it's cover. Our room was entirely redone and completely modern- new floors, new paint, brand new bathroom. It's something you'd expect at a much newer and pricier hotel. The owner is awesome and showed us to...

I found this on some site that reviewed hotels and thought I would check it out. The owner/manager was/is an Indian or Pakistani which often has negative connotations, But NOT HERE . The outside doesn't look that impressive but the room was great. Very clean, freshly painted, well decorated. Rest room immaculate! Much better than a lot of places I... More
