Other guests slamming doors and turned TV volume high after midnight, and made loud noise with their vehicles early in the morning. No hot water for showers three mornings and evenings in a row.

I didn't like being put right under the stairs. It was noisy most of the night with lots of talking and doors slamming. Sounds of fans and water running all night it was hard to sleep. Parking spots were few and small.

My supposedly non-smoking room smelled like stale cigarette smoke - like someone smoked a pack the day before in it. Asked for another room but no other vacancies. Asked for a discount, was offered $10. They gave me a refund (supposedly - I'll have to check that it came through) and left. Really poor service.

I was afraid to stay... I did not either! I am a single mother and did not feel at ease with the location of the property or safety.

Not really, not again!

Pros: The bed, while not the best, was surprisingly comfortable, with real pillows.
Cons: Everything!
Location: Located on a busy, noisy street, in a rundown neighborhood, with nothing in walking distance except a hot dog stand, across the street.
They tried, but, even with the improvements it's dated, real 60's style. The traffic noise makes sleep difficult, even though the beds are fairly comfortable. The real kicker though was, the one motel sized, soap chip, for three people, for two nights! Finally, the on-line picture of the motel was actually from a different motel, approximately two miles further east. Who's responsible for that, I don't know.
