This property was disgusting. As a cheap option I did not expect high end, but cleanliness is a must. The carpet was wet and filthy. I let my baby down to play for 10 minutes and his legs and feet were black. The AC did not work. We left a day early and the hotel refused to reimburse us that night. They were at full capacity and easily sold our room. Terrible experience!

Hi Nicholas, I apologize for the inconvenience we caused you, and have brought your concerns to the attention of our staff to ensure it is not repeated. Thank you for your feedback.

The upper hallway reaked so bad of cigarettes that it gave me a headache just getting to my room. The room had a air fresher so strong you could tell it was to cover up odors there too. The bathroom stunk of pee! I had requested a 1st floor room because my husband and i have physical issues that can make stairs difficult for us. We were given a second floor room. When i mentioned my 1st floor request, the clerk smirked and kinda laughed and said well we dont have a king on the first floor. I asked what did he have on the first floor. He said he had a room with 2 beds. We ended up taking the 2nd floor room, but wished we had just cancelled the room altogether and gone down the street to one of the other 3 right there.

It was close to the freeway. I didn't like the thin walls. Nothing was done to silence my noisy neighbors

I liked the price I paid for the rooms. Also the motel is centrally located to where I wanted to be. Its not a fancy motel but it serves a good purpose for people on a budget. One thing I did notice was the smell of the rooms. Not so good.

Terrible - Never stay again

Pros: Nothing actually
Cons: Too much
This hotel is a non smoking and smoking motel. I had a non-smoking room on one side of me and a smoking on the other. The hallways smelled of smoke and Pot. For the amount of money I spent to stay there, this place seemed dirty and smells awful. A lot of homeless people roaming around...I didn't feel necessarily unsafe but it was a bit unsettling.
