Reviewed 22 August 2017

There were still stains and mascara on my sheets and pillows, and the bathroom was so dirty, neither me nor my niece were brave enough to take a shower in there! Ugh! We were so tired...the coffee in the lobby was the best part about the whole place!

Room Tip: Bring Lysol & Clorox wipes!

i stayed here because i was in the middle of a long drive west. i wanted a place to sleep, and it was dirt cheap.

the hotel itself is kind of a dump. the room i had had no lounge chair to sit in. there was a bed, a desk, a desk chair, and that's all.

the room was 100 degrees when i got there. i think by the time i fell asleep it might have been in the 80's. but at least it had a refrigerator, and the wi fi worked well.

the bed was clean. i didn't see any bugs of any kind. it was quiet. so it basically served its purpose, even though it was kind of a dump. i never felt unsafe or anything. it was just kind of dumpy.

considering what i paid for it, it could have been worse.

Upon check-in, it took a really long time to get checked in, and I was the only person there. We got to our room and the air conditioner was not on and it was over 100 degrees. After 4 hours, the a/c still has not cooled the room, much the same temperature as it was. The remote on the tv will only change the channels, you have go do everything else manually. The bedspread does not fit the bed. The towels (and there weren't enough) are stained. I'm not sure if the bathroom was cleaned. The desk person just says I am an employee and it is not my problem. He gives the name of the owner and a phone number, which does not work. I don't see how anyone would consider this place as any kind of value. RUN, DO NOT WALK, AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.

Room Tip: Forget this place and go elsewhere. Avoid at any cost.

Great motel chain. These aren't luxury motels but are great for people who want a comfortable, clean, affordable night sleep. Our room was large with plush carpet. The bed was comfortable with fluffy pillows. We had a handicap bathroom so it was large. There was an ironing board and iron. Breakfast included biscuits and gravy, cereal, muffins, bananas.Great deal.

This place was so bad that we did not stay there our second night even though it was paid for and they would give us no money back. Our first "nonsmoking" room and those adjacent smelled like a smokers room since smoking rooms are right below. They took us to the other available rooms and they either smelled like smoke or super strong cleaning products (covering who knows what smell) We said these rooms are livable and wanted to leave but it was really late. They would not give us a refund for our second night but there was no way we'd stay there again. And I am usually fine with cheap lodging....since I'm almost never in a room when I travel....but these rooms were gross. UGH! Don't even think of it.
