          The staff is rude, the rooms are old and smelly. Not up to fire code either. The bathtub was full of mold and the bed very lumpy and squeeky. Booked through expedia, got a refund it was so bad. No smoke detector or emergency exit...More

          We didn't book a motel in advance and ended up in this motel. $110 including tax for this room is far overpriced. As others suggested,the owners are rather scary and very unhelpful. We stayed in the comfort inn two days later-lovely room and breakfast plus...More

          We're so disappointed to hear this. While we're glad it did the trick while you were in town for the game, just passable is never what we like to hear. Are you in the area often? We're currently renovating so we'd love to have you...More
