“Good Value”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Rooms are clean, and king bed was very comfortable. Good value for our one night stay. Quiet hotel, couldn't hear hallway noise. Front desk service was very friendly & helpful. They offered a light breakfast.

Tried to stay here with some friends. 70 bucks a night no way! It was so bad I paid the money tried to stay but ended up leaving just not a good experience the place smells like cigarettes and the carpets were dirty.the only reason not rating this hotel a 1 is because the bed was made. So yeah I wouldn't recommend staying here.

We stayed the 2 nights of Monday, June 23 & Tuesday, June 24, 2014. We first asked for a room far away from the railroad tracks which run alongside the eastern side of the motel complex. We got room 101 which was at the far West end of the complex. The room was fine albeit it had a odor of stale air - not mold - not smoke - perhaps it just needed a good airing out or the carpets cleaned / Deodorized???.

The free wifi did not reach our room so we asked for another room and got room 134 - across the hall from the main desk. At that location we could pick up the wifi - however we noticed the wifi speed varied from super fast to unusable. My guess is a guest is running 'torrents' to download movies. That sucks up the bandwidth. A suggestion for the technical support is to add per client bandwidth limiting and Quality of Service to the router to limit individual guests being able to use up the entire wifi bandwidth.

This second room also had the odor of stale air in it. I also noticed an odor as I walked along the hallway towards the east side of the building. Maybe it is some kind of building wide issue?

The breakfast offering was sub-par. They had two types of cold cereal, some sugar frosted mini-donuts, a few other small pastries, juice, toast and coffee. Great if you are on a carb intensive diet. Two weeks ago the hotel manager had replied to a review from Drew B and said "We do always have three choices of fruit regardless of the season." That was not the case on our stay. On Tuesday morning at 7 AM there was no fruit at all - not even a bowl for the fruit to be in. The desk clerk said a fruit shipment was coming in later that day. On Wednesday at 7 AM there were only 3 apples in a bowl. At 8 AM there were 5 apples. My guess is the hotel staff are told to parcel out the fruit to prevent guests from hogging it. It looked like the front desk clerk was also the only person available for the breakfast room supplying and cleaning up. That led to a messy counter surface with spilled cereal from the cereal dispenser that is hard to figure out.

Our room had a vintage 25 inch CRT TV. The remote control in our room did not work. The Monday afternoon front desk clerk tried changing the batteries in it - however that only got it half going. The Tuesday morning clerk switched the remote out with one that did work. The TV on/off did not work with either remote.

OK - enough complaining over small things. The room was clean, the beds comfortable and the staff we met during our stay were friendly and helpful.

They had a washer dryer available to guests - handy if you have been on the road for a while.

if it were me I would rather stay at the Roadking - it costs more but you get an odor free room with a flat screen TV, a TV remote that works, a large enclosed pool / hot tub / patio area where you can sit out bug free year 'round, good wifi, a much better breakfast and a location closer to 32'nd avenue.

I don't expect a management reply to this review as they seem to only reply to the positive ones.

I'm a pilot car driver and always looking for the best deal. They always come through with one. The rooms are always clean and the service is great. They offer the continental breakfast which great for me being on a go.
