The room was decent. The bathtub had paint chips coming off, the sheets had holes in it. The room needs a paint job... but like I said you get what you pay for. I wasn't impressed but wasn't disappointed. The staff were very nice. Good place if you are looking for an extremely affordable option.

Only stayed 2 nights. Room smelled like smoke, bad paint job, holes of varying sizes in the bathroom, generally a gross and run-down motel. Surprising because the facade looks quite new. Wouldn't stay again. They did allow me to check out early with refund after a family member had a health emergency though, so I appreciate that.

Staff was very good, attentive and friendly. Room was definitely so, so. Generally, it was shabby. The electrical outlet in the bathroom did not work and one had to be replaced (it was done while we were out). Hair dryer did not work well.

Room looked very run down, mold in the bathroom, fridge was leaking, coffee maker broke, front door was hard to shut and the washer was new but didn't work. We felt like we were a bother when something broke. Very Poor customer service.. Breakfast and coffee were great.

This hotel is horrible, don't stay here unless you like nasty, smelly, gross hotels. Great for contractors as it is very cheap. You get what you pay for. Apparently the only reason this hotel gets any business is because contractors put up their employees they care nothing about there.

Rooms looked nice however several outlets didn't work and all lamps and lighting fixtures were missing bulbs making the room very dark. Room also smelled strongly of mold. However staff was attentive and friendly.

Reviewed 27 October 2016

Starting from the very beginning of our trip (July 4th Weekend of this year) we were welcomed in by a rude woman at the front desk, who made a fuss about holding some of our luggage behind the desk. We were also displeased to discover that the pool was closed for rennovations. And although the sign read "to be completed... More
