Had to stay here for the weekend while visiting my family. Friendly staff and management, seems to be under construction, they have some newly remodeled rooms which are very clean and modernized. Tons of places to eat around this motel!

Let me start off by saying that the customer service at this motel is excellent! They recently had an owner and management change and things are turning around very quickly! The front desk attendant was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and when I went I actually spoke to the motel manager and let me tell you, there are some major changes...

I think that it is the worst hotel I have ever been. Nothing good I can say. Dirty, poor staff and breakfast, scary neighbourhood, rooms outdated, I put some pictures to show what I mean. It should be closed.

The place is terrible and scary. We were supposed to have a non smoking room, but our room was dirty and we saw cigar ashes on side table. We got a bed sheet with holes. TV Remote without batteries, stained and filthy bathroom and a dirty room. We were afraid to get back to the front desk because there were...

So, I have a credit card that I almost never use, especially for lodging. I used that credit card here (with some ironic difficulties scanning the card from the front desk clerk) -- and four days later I wind up with a whole bunch of credit card fraud transactions on my card. Fortunately my bank caught on and froze my...

First of all, I had to stay here because everywhere else had no vacancy and my companion and I have been awake on our road trip for over 48 hours, too dangerous to drive.

The title says it all. The hotel is pretty old and the facilities look like they belong to the eighties. It woldn't have been so bad if they bothered to clean up the rooms.

I discovered that there are two hotels sharing the same street address and the same owner. The America's Best is on Roosevelt Road. The Budgetel is behind it.
