Most motel beds are a bit ordinary, but this one was wonderful. Turn to get to motel is a bit confusing, but worth... More

The location is close to the airport. There is an ironing board and iron in the room as well as fridge and microwave. Bring your own blow dryer though. Room is clean though, and the staff is friendly. For the price, I was happy.

Stayed here for a few days. Around the fourth day I noticed some bites on my back. I inspected my bed and discovered bed bugs. Management said it was my fault because I hadn't complained the previous days. They said I had brought them in and refused to give a refund. Rediculous. Avoid at all costs

I booked this hotel online to be close to the airport (which it is) and didn't think it would be that bad. The experience we had with the hotel and staff compelled me to write this review so that other travelers think twice before they decide to stay there. At multiple points during our one night stay we debated paying... More
