For the higj price, it was super small. Only a bed and a table and restroom fit. Had a good laugh about it but upset about the $124 we paid for it

Not bad if you are in budget it’s close to restaurants shopping and casinos it’s a bit noisy because it’s in the main road and you can hear the vehicles passing through

Business traveler, Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The place was very clean and updated. The price was way too high likely due to the holiday weekend but felt like price gouging, but in their defense all the hotels and motels were that expensive.
