Location not that good but room was clean. Staff was friendly. Pam was a great help. She made sure we had everything we needed. If you are looking for a cheap room thats clean this is the place. I would definitely recommend.

I come here every time i make it into town. The motel has clean affordable rooms. I would recommend to anyone. The young lady who works front desk Pamela is a beautiful young lady who goes out of her way to make sure everything is perfect with my stay and goes above and beyond every time.

After a long transatlantic flight we were transfered to this place after a mess up with booking.com and quite frantically I would have rather slept on a bench outside. The room absolutely stank, the wallpaper was not only coming off the walls it was grubby too. The lighting was dingy, the bedding was stained and smelt like stale cigarette smoke...
