Stayed here in mid August with family of 3. First impressions were good, but found a problem or two. The good: Convenient location, fresh, attractive lobby, friendly check-in, and unusually large rooms, especially for what could be considered a "budget motel". Fridge and micro in the rooms was very convenient. Good parking. The motel looks like a newer property inside and out. The complementary breakfast was what I consider a good value for the budget price of this lodging. Mostly breads/pastries, fresh fruit, waffles, yogurt, etc., hot & cold drinks/juice. Clean and attractive, spacious breakfast area.
The bad- the "unseen". Although the rooms and common areas appeared clean & fresh on first glance, we had to look under the beds for a missing item the day we checked out, and found the carpets were remarkably dirty under the beds, with lots of debris, wrappers, small trash, spilled crumbs, etc. Pretty bad. It looked like the areas under the easily movable beds on wheels had not been vacuumed/cleaned in weeks, or even months. This is a housekeeping issue that should not be tolerated by management, or the housekeeping supervisor. That said, I would NOT say I would never stay again, I will probably give this motel one more try next time I am in the area, it's only fair to give them the chance to correct this one problem.
