I overheard the manager(?) offering a discount to someone for her next stay in return for a positive tripadvisor review, so take the glowing reviews with a grain of salt. I'm actually surprised they need these bribes and fake reviews, because it is an acceptable motel overall, providing most of the basics. My biggest problem was that for over $120/night I found it way overpriced for what it is. If you get a better price, go for it.
The positives: simple but okay breakfast typical in La Quinta/Best Western/Holiday Inn; a reasonably clean room; fridge and a basic coffee maker in the room. My room was quiet, but I got really lucky with that (see below). It's walking distance from the downtown attractions and the convention center, although it's not comfortably close.
The negatives: the wifi hardly ever worked; there's a lot of noise in all but a few rooms (the rooms facing the streets outside overlook a busy train track and a heliport and a major road, while the remaining rooms overlook motel's own parking lot -- the best option is probably a room facing the parking lot, but on the top floor). The immediate surroundings are seedy at best, nobody lives or walks around there (save for a few homeless folks), it's just parking lots and a jail. Most businesses around close early. Walking towards downtown it's 10 minutes of pray-that-you-don't-get-mugged before you get to the part that appears safe.
I'd only recommend this place it if you have no other affordable options (my case), or if it's under $100 a night, in which case it's a reasonable deal for a typical motel chain. It's almost 4 stars, but I got too annoyed with the wifi that hardly ever worked, so it's a 3.
