We stayed here for a short weekend in 2013 for an event at the convention center. I wasn't expecting the nicest of accommodations but I did find myself wishing we could have stayed somewhere else. I've never been in motel/hotel room that had all tile floor. I guess it's easier to keep clean....that is, if it's cleaned. We kept flip flops next to the bed so we didn't need to walk around barefoot. Upon pulling the bedspread back on one of the beds (that are hard as rocks), we found somebody's hair. The bathroom sink dripped constantly and the bathroom overall was very dated. There was a door in the room similar to what usually connects two rooms but it didn't budge so I'm not sure what was on the other side of it - it creeped me out so we kept our luggage on a chair in front of the door. Upon arrival, we found the fridge door wide open with a towel laying in the bottom - after our 2 night stay, I figured out it was left like that so the freezer section could defrost. Weirdest of all, we had to flip the breaker box in the room to turn our lights on when we first arrived. Not only is the parking lot small, the "line" for the end parking space is the sidewalk - when getting out of the car, the door swung out over the sidewalk. All that said, the motel matches the area it's in....not nice and uncomfortable. The only good things I can say is that the front desk people were very nice and the shower pressure was awesome.
