save your money and go somewhere else. if you want to spend the night with prostitutes, sex offenders, drug addicts, and alcoholics living daily at this place then come on down. the electronically lit sign as you enter the place says (come see the new browns) (under new management) (best value in town) its all a joke , the management...

I recently stayed here for two nights and elected to get one of the rooms of the world (India). I found the management (which was apparently recently changed) to be friendly and take pride in the place. The room was not spacious, but clean and the India room theme was worth the upgrade. It's located in the middle of a...

This is by far the WORST MOTEL that I have ever visited. After driving for hours and arriving very late I pulled over hoping for a restful sleep and experienced the total opposite. Unfortunately, I was driving with a child and couldn't afford to continue looking. The clerk was friendly but that didn't make up for the awful conditions. This...

We stayed here while traveling through on our bikes. The staff was friendly and the room decor was nice, but the room was a little dirty (old food in refrigerator, unemptied trash and some kind of straw on the floor). The toilet ran very slowly to the point where we thought it was broken, and since they only had one...

I'm local to the area and this place has a bad reputation. However, I recently needed a room in my price range so I gave it a try. I paid $56 for one of the deluxe room, such as it was. It was small and a little run down but very clean and because my room was towards the back,...

Budget price (must ask for and insist on it) best for one/two persons--no frills. Clean rooms, but arrive/call early for best results. Nice check-in lady--works with customers. Rooms have unique motiffs representing various world destinations. Has front entrance room near bed with a cute table and chairs. Downside: Air Conditoning/fan may not work. Basic showers--no tubs.
