Friendly staff. Room was very clean, bed was very comfortable. Motel was quiet, had well rested sleep. Breakfast had a verity of bagels, waffle maker, toast and selection of cereals and fresh coffee and juices. It is close to highway and many shops and good restaurants near by. Pleasurable stay. Would recommend this motel for comfortable stay.

Well, it's affordable. It has a pool and fitness center. The price was right but I would not stay again. My room was not very clean and everything was falling apart. The hotel looks like it has recently been redone but with very cheap updates, so not the best quality. You could see where things were already damaged and likely... More

I have just checked out of this hotel.

I am happy with my stay. The room was very clean and the staff very friendly. I was impressed with the price. The only thing maybe a fridge and microwave in rooms. Definitely stay here again. Waiting for house to finish getting ready

The receptionist barely spoke English. The room is run down and nasty. Mold on the side table, rips on the chair, stains on the bedding, the a/c doesn't work in the room, the toilet was disgusting and some one had used it with out flushing before we got here. I do NOT recommend this hotel!!
