        It was cheap. It was close to mall and resturaunts.

        Did not like the outside entrance. Photos online made it look like inside entrances. Did not have a pool, which I was looking forward to.

        I suppose the hotel manager did her best to accommodate us and put us in better/cleaner rooms, but it took a lot of discussion. I understand that with the convention in town it took a little manuevering on her part, which we appreciated. As she is a customer services representative, she should have been quicker to respond to making satisfactory arrangements. As most conventioners were there for 2-3 days, our reservations of 2 rooms for 5 nights should have been of a little more priority....we were ready to check out!

        As an obviously aged property, a person can recognize that the hotel has been issues due to condition; however, cleanliness issues in addition to condition is a double whammy. After much discussion, the hotel manager was able to move my party to two rooms that were on the inside of the building and had been partially renovated which was much better than the first two rooms that checked into. But again, even with renovations, there were areas of uncleanliness in the bathrooms that with a little more attention to detail , would have made the difference in those rooms.

        The room was clean and the beds were comfortable.

        It was noisy outside well into the am because of other guest screaming and yelling outside.

        It is easy to find, right off the freeway. Friendly staff. Fridge and microwave, iron, hair dryer in room.

        Although I had WIFI connection, there was not internet access for the first day of my stay. Noisy because of the freeway, earplugs were needed. Not enough bath towels.

        When I told your clerk that there were bugs in the room she said that I could go get some raid at the store. I will never stay at this motel again

        Very helpful staff Thank you, we enjoyed our stay

        Other customers a bit noisy when outside during the night

      • Older travelers

        It had access to a lot of shopping, eateries and freeways. We had a top floor room and not a bad view.

        It could be use a cleaner and newer carpet, other than that it was ok.
