We stayed at this place for 4 nights and the rooms are great value. It´s clean, beds are very comfortable, it´s close to the airport and public transport and the staff is very accommodating. The area can be a bit scary after dark but it´s fine during the day. I would definitely stay here again.

Dirty, gross, bugs, and hookers! Don't stay here, the people are rude and not helpful. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, I'd rather sleep in my truck over staying there! Nastiest place I've ever stayed at!

If you need an inexpensive place close to the airport, look no further. Our flight was delayed..did not get in till 2AM but we were professionally greeted. The exterior is very modest, but the room was spacious and clean, bed was comfortable. We stayed again on the way out, and by that time, considerable renovations had been made. The manager was attentive and the place exceeded my expectations.

The Skyline Inn is a one-star hotel, so we didn't have high expectations at all. We were very surprised by the cleanliness of the room, the professionalism of the staff, and what was overall a very comfortable and pleasant stay. I would definitely stay here again.

Inexpensive - yes but beware. We left after an hour. The unit reeked of cleaning solution. The "kitchenette" consisted of a dirty cooktop with small sink and frig. No microwave. No locks on windows and the main window was filthy. Outside young people and a few children lounged about while next door a shouting match went on and on. The motel is located across from a detention facility so perhaps the motel residents are there to visit. I had read reviews giving this motel a 6.1 and 6.7. I suggest dividing by 2!

An associate and I stayed here for a business trip last week and the Manager, Dale, as well as his staff are great. The whole place has been newly renovated and, even though the neighborhood is a bit dicey, you'd never know it from the rooms or the service.

Not welcomed with a friendly staff in the first place. King room reserved but double queen room provided. Even though it says free wifi provided, it is not stable. The room is using wooden floor where you will hear sound when walk over. Not sure how strong it is. Stove provided but not have any pot,utensils or even a cup. The toiletries provided is very basic, don't expect toothbrush and toothpaste.
