I came in late to the airport. Needed a cheap place to stay for the night. The guy at the desk was pretty helpful. The room was very dirty. Stains on the towels. I took a shower, dried off with a hand towel, slept on top of the comforter, and left early. Didn't have high expectations, but I'd put the... More

This hotel is centrally located and easy to find. There is a restaurant right on site as well as many nearby. The main shopping mall is a little away but others are very close.

There was a lot of noise outside of the room. The peephole had a paper because it was so large people from the outside could potentially look inside the room. There was a loud siren that went off about 3 times during the night. Overall the experience was not good.

If you like sleeping on a hard bed and tracking down towels to take a shower this is the place for you!

The room is filthy. Stains on sheets, disgusting carpets. Don't get me started on the bathroom, makes you want to throw up. It's a cheap motel. One is not expecting luxury for the price, but at least, rooms can be clean. Stay somewhere else.
