I wish I could give 0 stars. I used Expedia to purchase the room. When I arrived it was to a dark and dingey office which was closed with a bulletproof window on the side. I approached the window and the attendant looked at me and then lazily returned to her phone call. A few minutes later she approached me. I gave my name and she then told me I would need to pay the deposit. She then asked if I wanted a regular room. I said "Sure" and she proceeded to charge me for a regular room. I looked at the paperwork which showed that I paid $88.50 on my credit card. I asked why it was more than the quoted 67$ on Expedia and she told me that she "didn't realize I booked it on expedia". I told her to refund the money and she refunded the money that I spent via Expedia for about 60.50$. She then proceeded to tell me that she didn't realize I wanted a refund on the higher priced room she just charged me for. She then told me if I wanted to rebook it at the lower price I would have to go through Expedia's customer service. I demanded a refund and ended up getting another hotel room. Because this took so long another patron (a sketchy looking dude) wandered up and started tapping on the glass while I was waiting for her to the window. The whole experience took about 30 minutes and felt very unsafe even at 8:30pm.

I reserved a room earlier in the week. Waited 30 min in line outside to check in - no one allowed in the office. They didn't have a non-smoking room that I reserved so I cancelled my reservation. This took 10 min and I am still waiting for my refund. Don't bother with this place.

I liked the convenience to our area location; however, we didn't like being given a smoker room when a non-smoker room was requested.

The staff was very rude,the room they gave me wasnt cleaned,dirty sheets,used soap,no towels,the bathroom had soap Scam and black,the floor was dirty my baby couldnt crawl on it without getting black from the dirt.when I asked for clean sheets they didnt have any clean.I had to go to the store to get cleaning supplies to clean it.I had ask for downstair room because I had 6 suitcases and 2 kiddos and they said they didnt have one even when I called 4 times to make sure I could get one downstairs and then they charged me 110 a nite instead of what I was told by Expedia it would cost.I am gonna get ahold of corporate and tell them how bad it is getting ran.With covid it should be extra clean,everyday I had to go up to office and get key redone because it wouldnt work any longer with a 10 mo old and a 5 year old it was very hard to haul them up there everyday to get into my room.when I lefted I made sure the room was cleaned the way it should have been ,my rags were black from dirt.also the AC filter was so dirty I was surprised it worked.To say the worst it was the worst motel I have ever stayed in.I have stayed here about 5 years ago and it was pretty good for the price.needs new management.
