Convenient location in the Northwest. Older property, but clean and well maintened. The bed is quite comfortable. Staff is very friendly and it is a good overall value. It would be nice if they would get with the times a little and upgrade their TV's, but that is the only real shortfall.

Though the room was clean and location perfect, it was just too hot. 30 degrees when we arrived! Air conditioning and an open window only brought it down to 24 degrees...and it is winter here! The heat plus the extreme noise from the air conditioning made for a pretty much sleepless night. We think the boiler room (or something like that) was located just below us. No idea what the other rooms are like but whatever you do don't stay in room 23. If it weren't for these problems, this would be good value for money. Don't think we'd be willing to take the chance and stay here again. If you do and have the same problems but sure and go straight to the desk and ask for a different room.

I stay here quite often, not because of its ambiance, but because of its location and price. It is reasonable priced and reasonably clean; however, it is old and really could stand a face lift especially in the smoking rooms, but they do allow smoking, one of the few hotels/motels around that still do.

Didn't expect anything fancy. Adequate for a nights sleep. A bit nosy but that's what you should expect when booking a motel off a main thru-way. Front desk staff was very pleasant. My main complaint is that the hotel thermostat couldn't be turned-up. The room was too cold and couldn't take the cover off to turn it up and the temp was -30 out so some heat would of been nice. (Not sure if broken or cover was glued on so it couldn't be adjusted.). Wouldn't stay for an extended period of time, but fine for a night.

My room was clean and provided the basics: bed, desk, wifi, hangers, full bath etc. The motel is right on a busy highway. Because it is a motel there are very bright lights in the exterior corridors which curtains don't block out. Very loud, fighting guests on my floor were allowed to continue making noise for over 2 hrs, not quieting down until after 3:30AM.

We needed a hotel for New Year's Eve. Going to an all night party and just needed accomodations for 4. It was just a standard room but the beds were great, excellent hot water and pressure and the sink and mirror separate from the tub and toilet. Also, 2 of us are smokers (got smoking room) but each room has door directly outside ... perfect!! Couldn't beat the price either ... under $100 on NYE !!

Room Tip: If you want a room to sit and watch TV ... choose another. All amenities (coffee, fridge, microwave...
