I came there with my wife and my 3 little boys. Our first impression was this horrible smell of smoke, even if we had a non smoking room. The price is very cheap - children don't pay! - but the accommodation too... no boiler, no fridge, no free wifi. However, thanks for the free coffee on the morning.

Good for a quick stop and a good night's sleep. Nothing fancy, but economical. Free parking. Charge for wifi. Rooms have a 'college dorm' feel, but I wasn't there to spend any amount of time in the room. Good value. Ellie at front desk was helpful.

I have stayed at motels and hotels but from the past reviews I don't think people understand. I stayed and borrowed a blow dryer from the front desk. I had fresh coffee in the lobby. And for the WiFi I spent 4.99 but I still saved money I could have had free WiFi at another hotel but it would have...

This hotel looks new from the outside. Room was cheap enough, should have been the first clue. The room was dark and freezing. The air conditioner was turned down low which we later discovered was to try to cover up an odour in the room. There was something in the bed that was gritty. Obviously the linens had not been...

Booked through Booking.com. The motel is being spruced up, fresh paint new floor, ect.. The room was very clean but kind of stark. There are no hairdryers , irons, microwave or coffee makers in room. It's bare bones. Staff is nice but not very professional. We will not be staying here on our next trip to Portland. We also had...

This is a fine enough place to stay for a night with the family for a night. Clean, freshly painted, security, decent pillows, tv with cable, my 2.99 wifi worked for email. Soap, but no shampoo. Our other stays are far more cozy, but would stay again if on the road.

This motel fulfilled my expectations. I needed inexpensive place to stay from 10 pm to 6 am - I didn't care about amenities or ambiance. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, bathroom sparkled, TV worked. The management was friendly. Air conditioner was loud, but provided white noise so I wouldn't have known if halls were noisy! Given the type of...

Staff was friendly. Room was ok. All we needed for one night but I would have been much happier with free wifi. Only way to have working wifi is to pay a $4.99 fee. I didn't bother with that. Would have liked a coffee maker in the room but they did have coffee in the lobby.

Just a terrible motel. Nothing more to say. Burn holes in the bedding. Bathrooms unpleasant. Dirty. Strange smells. It is cheap, you get what you pay for. Not good to stay here and leaves you feeling not positive about your stay. We left as fast as we could. Don't stay here.
