Disgusting place
Absolutely bad smell of cigarettes The blankets were disgusting, hairs all over and burnt (probably from cigarettes)! Looked like the bed sheets had not been changed and the floor was dirty! Absolutely disgusted!!

You get what you pay for.
Didn't have the iron and board as needed. Questionable area, but the price was right. Towel were stained and cheap toiletries. Got loud with people smoking outside at night.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Outdated and dirty
I was dissatisfied with the room, found hairs on the towels, and the decor is in serious need of upgrade. The showerhead is too low for anyone taller than 5'4". The front desk is not open 24 hours and where you leave the key is not secure, so someone could come after you leave it in the mailbox and access your room.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The motel rooms are really dated and appear semi-clean. Space was very tight with round table at foot of bed and appliances worked okay. Really wondered if they did any carpet cleaning for quite some time.
