The facility was in a residential area but had several very sketchy and young people and several people that appeared to be transients wandering around the premises. I had reserved a room without a kitchenette, but my reservation was lost and had to spend an extra $20 for the room. I had to pay a refundable $50 down payment. Parking...

Location is not convenient. Even the name of the hotel is not written properly. We had a tough time to locate it in the first place. The room was ok. The walls and the ceiling were not very clean though. It dint have a cupboard. Not a comfortable stay overall.

As a motel this place is not ready for prime time. It is an apartment complex for very poor people and transients with vacant rooms treated as hotel rooms. My room was clean, freshly painted, but the new pillows had a horrible chemical odor to them. There were no towel racks or hangers or even a bedroom chair to set...
