DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!
My girlfriend and I chose this motel due to it's location to downtown. It is within walking distance to most of the downtown bars. Now that I've pointed out this motels ONLY advantage, let me list it's disadvantages.
We get there on Friday afternoon around 5 and there is no one to be found in the office. We had to dial a number on a phone and had to wait 20 minutes just to check in. The person at the front desk then rattled off a huge list of rules that we had to abide by or they'd kick us out. Like that we can't have visitors at the motel past ten. No one who was visiting could park their cars in the parking lot at all, even before "curfew". We can't leave the heater running or they'll charge us a $50 dollar fee.
After we checked in, we then walked around the motel building, but while we were walking around, this creepy guy was parked right outside our door watching us. He then let me park in his spot so we could unload. He then got out of his car and started creeping around the building. It was really creepy.
The room itself wasn't awful, just what you'd expect from a $70 motel. It listed that there was a fridge, but there was no fridge. It listed that there was ice, but there was no ice machine to be found. We called the front desk with these issues and they told us that they keep the ice machine locked up and that there were no fridges in the motel. So in order for us to get ice we had to call the front desk so they could unlock the room with the ice machine.
The bathroom wasn't all that bad either. It had a toilet, sink and a shower. The shower itself had terrible pressure. The towels were old and had what I am sure are "love stains" on them.
We went out that night with her friends. We came back after "curfew" with some of her friends who had too much to drink and couldn't drive home. The woman at the front desk watched us walk to our room, then told us that the people couldn't stay and made them leave, despite telling her that they were too drunk to drive.
If you're looking for a nice motel to bang a hooker in, look no further. Otherwise, don't waste your money.
Again, overall this was a terrible experience. I will NEVER stay at this motel again. I'd rather sleep on a park bench. As for the people rating this above a 4, I don't know what motel you were stating at, but it wasn't this one. My girlfriends sister stayed at a different hotel, which we were both extremely jealous of, the Harbor Winds Hotel. For just another 8 bucks a night, you can stay at an extremely reputable hotel with excellent accommodations.
