Location is great and the hotel is cheap, however you will quickly notice why. The room was clean, but it smelled like weed and curry in the room and especially in the hallway. Bathroom was relatively clean but definitely needs an upgrade. Smoke detector was covered with a plastic bag. Some strange people were walking in the hallway and the...

Room smelled horrible. The shower did not work. The comforter is so thin it resembles a shower curtain. Saw two german cockroaches on the door frame of my room. Worst experience I have had in my life. The mattress is so uncomfortable it hurt my back.

Holes in the wall as if someone is watching us. Couldn't leave our personal items in the room. Unsafe! Not a good breakfast items . Convenient to the highway getting on and off. Convenient to the French quarters

The very look of its surroundings and the caged lot screams "run away," but inside are the largest standard motel rooms I have encountered and done up in a very modern decor. This comes at some price though as the raised platform beds, while chic, were Hades on the back after a day or two. Give me a good box...

Location was 10/20 minutes to everything. Spacious rooms. Clean well cleaner than I had imagined. I loved the "courtyard" my room was viewing a palm tree along with a freeway in the back ground. I had a room by the exit on the first floor because I said I smoke and the front desk man here let's get you a...

Stayed 3 nights. Would come again if ever in the area. Very Affordable. No carpet but I actually like it that way. Housekeepers were very helpful and always greeted me with smiles. They even gave hugs on my last morning.

I thought this place would be a bit rough because of the neighbourhood we looked to be in but found it quite adequate for a few nights stay. The laundry was fine. The room was spacious and clean and tidy. There looked to be homeless people living under the freeway just a couple of blocks from the Motel but we...

I was Ok with this Place until i woke up and tried to take a Shower.... No hot water. And the Bed was Hard . No Box Spring under the Mattress.. Security is good there. You can't even enter the Building unless you have a Room Card Key which is good.

This motel looked fine the rooms were large and reasonably clean (though we did kill cockroaches in both rooms we were in) The problem is they lock the doors in the corridors between the rooms and the reception.....and that is where the danger lies....we were held up at gun point here and there was no other way to get to...
