You know you have made a mistake as soon as you see the sign and the building. We paid almost $1,000 for a 5 night stay. Look at real pictures! Stay at the Motel 8 down the street! Service was lazy and didn't clean up well. We hated the room. Location was good.

Hello Sheila J, it was truly disheartened to know about your staying experience. Though, we always try our best to give exceptional hospitality and comfortable accommodation to all the guests, this time it seems we failed to fulfill our duties. You will surely get everything in the right condition during your future visit at our hotel. Thank you so much!!

"Choose a room away from the breakfast room and as isolated as possible."
"My tip is...go to the Super 8 down the street!"
"Needs more bathroom vanity space. "
"It would be nice to have a spray or glade plug in for the mildew odor. It's something that I think is very important especially for those guests with babies or children. "
