Got a room on the back side of the property but never even went in - barely got out of the car before three police squads pulled in and officers with guns drawn were going into a room three doors down. As the officers walked by they both advised to never stay at this place, it’s nothing but a drug den. Based on those comments and the characters milling around I got back in the car and booked a safer, quieter motel several blocks away. Gal in front office refused to issue a refund, surprise, surprise. Ended up staying elsewhere which was fantastic, for the same $. No cops or tweakers there!

Great located divey motel
I want to leave a great review, because I'm not kidding... this hotel is in one of the best locations with decent pricing! But, we had to go to the front desk to get towels and pillowcases 3 times before the very nice person behind the desk went and got them for us herself. They were doing construction which the hotel needs, but the lumber was all stacked up in front of our door and we had to move it! Our air conditioner didn't work and just the fan blew. We were "upgraded" because our room we wanted wasn't ready. It wasn't much of an upgrade. We've stayed there twice and thouroughly enjoyed the location, but will probably not stay again.

Dirty, nasty, gross!
To start the front desk was rude because our room wasn’t ready at 3:15 when check in is 3. Went to our room and it had dead bugs all over the floor and no lights would work. Went to front desk and they moved us to a different room. A little cleaner but still not good. No towel when they did drop them off they were damp. I would never waste my money on this dump again!

They double charged me so I had to file a dispute with my Credit Card company after I was told they would take care of it. The first night our room was disgusting I wouldn’t rent it to anyone!!! Then I think I left my $500.00 glasses in the first room and I have called 3 times and left a message but no one called me back to let me know if they found them. We have been staying there for over 20 years and will never go back!!!! Worst customer service ever!!!!

Our first room was a disaster! Carpet was disgusting!!! Your feet stuck to the floor it was so nasty. I would never have rented that room to anyone! Our second room was very nice and clean. Amy was such a sweetheart!!! They double charged me for our two night stay and Amy is working on fixing it. She is absolutely adorable! A true asset to this hotel!!! If not for her we probably would never stay here again after staying here for over 20 years!!!!! I truly hope they appreciate her!!!!
