    I was also in between places and checked out a few of the motels in the area. All were about the same price. It was $60 per night on weekdays and $70 on weekends. Not sure where the other reviewer got $62. Maybe that was the price awhile ago. The people working there seemed friendly to me but I only...

    I stayed at the Diplomat for a couple of months in late 2014. I was working 12-16 hours a day and looking for an apartment which proved to be impossible to do quickly.

    Do not stay at this hotel. Does not have a microwave and room is mediocre. Looks run down and shabby and the cost is 62 dollars a night plus tax. The owner is very sharp tongued and you are better off staying somewhere else. As a matter of fact stay in the suburbs.
