For me, it wasn't as bad as a lot of the reviews made it sound. Low expectations probably helped. Room was okay with relatively new furnishings. Everything worked. Some traffic noise from outside but I put the fan on high and drowned most of it...More

comfortable hotel in a location that met my needs. Breakfast was basic and hotel is dated but clean. Checked in late and had some issues with the printer but they were able to get me in my room. Ihop next door was awesome!

It is a very simple motel which deliver what it promises. The room and the bathroom were clean, the water of the shower is very good. They give clean towels and simple amenities for shower. They also have a very complete and simple breakfast.

Please be advised...terrible stay. Smell, dirtiness....etc etc. What they tell you, ia not what you get. Falsely advertised prices and conditions. Staff is extremely rude. Management is horrible. And gaurenteed you will somehow be double charged for the actual night or nights you stay!

The "neighbors" are parking lots of restaurants or stores. The area is well lit. There were several cars around - not vacant feeling. Overall, felt safe there.
