Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I have stayed here several times in the last year. I come back because the facilities are comfortable and staff are nice. Even if there is a problem, they are quick to help fix it and they are very pleasant to work with.

Cleanliness was an issue. Staff was unable to make small account adjustments regarding guests ownership of rooms. Terrible experience. Breakfast was disappointment.

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
First of all, the photo is deceiving, the property is in disrepair with the shower head being covered in mineral deposits; a front desk person who virtually had contempt for her job. The pipes above our room started to leak overnight, so they moved us to another room, but the ceiling fan didn't work, & the TV didn't respond to control. The parking lot needs to be restriped, the stalls were almost unidentifiable.

Love the staff. Very kind and quick to help out. The area around is very skeptical & the rooms let in smells from the outside. We woke up in the middle of the night to the smell of someone smoking weed. It flooded our room and was very unpleasant. The area around is scary and feels unsafe.

Good for the price. Clean, safe, silent (except for a few guests at the time, but isn't hotel fault). Food could be better and the mattress was too soft for me. Recommend.

Good classic motel but definitely not high end. We had an easy check in and the complementary breakfast was limited but nice. Cleanliness was unfortunately not great - there was dirt all over the floor when we got in our room and the pool/hottub hasn't been cleaned in a while - lots of floating bugs and hair.
