For a Microtel this location is a little on the lower quality side.
From the outside the building looks ok. The area is a little rougher looking with a truck dealer near by which for some reason likes to park their trucks in the hotel lot.
The lobby was kind of plain and featured a small fish tank on the desk with only a single goldfish in it nothing else. Kind of felt bad for the fish.
After getting checked in we pulled around back to go to the room. We found the door that you should have to use room key to enter was unlatched and does latch shut on its own.
Our room was located on the 3rd floor. The first impression once arriving to the floor was not good as the hallway was being used for old used mattress storage. Also the floor was hot, muggy and smelly.
Room was typical Microtel 2 bed layout. For the most part the room was ok just needs some good deep cleaning and maintenance. A/C unit was really dusty. There was a cigarette left on top of the dresser. The bathroom door didn't latch well. Small stains on the walls here and there as well as one on the ceiling. Nothing super horrible but not up to what you expect. We had an older tv and microwave, no fridge.
The room featured a safe with no key so it was useless. From reading other reviews you will see there is a sign at the desk about $1 safe charge. I'm not sure if you can get a key at the desk or what but my thought on the safe charge is that this just someone being very cheap. And some of the upkeep of the hotel shows that as well. It's just a buck but still. Just figure it in the whole rate and it would make the guest feel better.
Overall it's an ok hotel. But if you want a larger room, that's cleaner and has a flat screen tv, microwave, and fridge. Check out the Budget Host Inn like we did. The outside is older but the rooms are great. But the outside doesn't alway match the inside. Plus it was $15 cheaper!
