Cheap meaning it didnt cost much. Outdated throughout, but it was clean and quiet. That's all I expect for $50.00.

Breakfast bar was lacking. Walls of room were dirty, beds very uncomfortable. Never have I stayed in a hotel with such thin walls. Hotel seemed like party central. Arrived at 11pm, and people still being loud until 1am. Shower did its job, towels were very scratchy and didn't dry you off very well. Only reason we stayed here was because... More

Old, dark, dank and unsafe. Bed uncomfortable. People walking the halls all night. Vending machines only took cash and were very over priced. AC was so so. Side door left unlocked all night, anyone could walk in. Ghetto people in lot and in motel, really felt unsafe. Not worth the cheaper price if you don't feel safe and like you... More

Pretty rough place - run by Indian folks, so curry abounds along with cleanliness issues. We would not have stayed, but everything else was booked and we had fishing charter reservations booked for Lake Michigan. Our no smoking rooms were just not that great, but again we had no other choices...I won't be back. We actually only stayed about 6... More

I had a prepaid room. When I arrived at 10:30 pm I was told that my room had been sold. IT WAS PREPAID. The desk clerk said he tried to call me. I was on an international flight, but it wasn't his room to sell.. It was fully prepaid. It was a dump by the way.

The ice machine in lobby didn't work. Not good. However, hotel staff would go upstairs and get a small bag of ice to give to you. Better than nothing but still a royal pain.

The whole building smelled of cigarettes and Marijuana. Sheets had cigarette burns in them. The air conditioner sounded like a freight train. It was so loud we shut it off and roasted instead. There is so much updating that needs to be done. The whole place should just be dozed. We left asap, never to return.
