The distance to El Mercado was great, but there were lots of homeless people hanging around the hotel and even an armed security guard that patrolled the parking lot of the McDonald's right next door. It isn't the best area of town, but we really didn't have any problems with the location. The room is very basic. No frills. No...

Motel pretty expensive for the quality shown. Room very old, not clean and really basic. Wi-Fi is NOT free... poor connection and beds not very comfortable. No fridge, poor tv, dirty bath... The location is the only positive point here.

It's not the Hilton, clearly. But when paying 100 bucks a night, one would expect something slightly better. A non-smoking room that tells of smoke. A hotel that charges for the internet (who does that these days???????!??), And an area that feels unsafe at any time of the day: no thanks. The staff is quite friendly, i must say!

The reviews are real, if you do choose to stay here after reading thru all of this and other reviews, I recommend asking to stay on the north side (entrance side).

This is a very basic room. No extras. But also no extra parking fees, etc. Bring your own toiletries. Yes, it is in an area populated with homeless people but they didn't do anything to bring attention to themselves. Beds were comfortable enough for a one-night stay and room price allowed us to have extra $ to spend on other...

The location is great if you are looking to spend time at the market square which is just across the freeway. Other than that, I'd look somewhere else. There is a freeway on one entrance and a bus station on the other so there was a lot of foot traffic through the parking lot at all hours of the night....

We chose this hotel because it was reasonably close to Riverwalk, a good price, and there was free parking, didn't want to pay $250 for a room and $50 to park the car and then pay for valet fee. The drawbacks are this hotel does not supply shampoo etc. no fridge, very basic and no continental breakfast. Also it is...

Stayed there New Years Eve night. I read some reviews before going so I knew what to expect. I brought a can of Lysol spray and some disinfectant wipes to go over key areas in order to feel more comfortable about staying there.
