Just gross. Staff was fine and lovely, area was okay, nice amenities, spacious room with two queen beds but it smelled really bad in that room, the bathroom had hair in the tub, and just overall felt like we always smelled urine. Just have my family and I the "icky's". But it's affordable, spacious nice staff and great amenities.

We could tell that the property had under gone some updating. What was updated looked nice and clean. In the office area, 1 side table looked out of place and a coral couch looked dingy. Trash receptacles outside near the stairs were leaking and that was causing a lot of dirty foot traffic. Inside the room, the bathroom and floors needed the most attention. Any new fixtures looked decent and clean. BUT the shower curtain and bathroom walls had lots of mold. The older fixtures were do-able but the old carpet and mold in the bathroom made me feel uneasy and unclean. If they finish renovating and do a better job cleaning (&/or put better fans in the shower area to help with the mold) I’d say it would be an adequate place to stay for the night. The mold really did not make me feel like it was worth any price.

There was a long black hair on the bathtub, a bugger on the wall, and something on the toilet. I ask for someone to clean it but the cleaning staff had gone home already. Only a night desk person on duty who told me to let the manager know in the morning when he comes in.

We loved the beautiful balcony and mature landscaping, with the overhang and shade of the trees! The two bedrooms was also a plus! The staff was very nice too!

Good for the price. We arent picky so it worked, plus didnt spend all our time inside anyways. The showers were wonky, but other than that everything was basic motel.

The room was very dirty. The walls were dirty and the shower curtain was filthy. My children found drugs in the cabinet. They found cacaine. I would never stay here again.

My three friends and I rented a suite for $170 and the room was absolutely disgusting. We went to the front desk and requested another room, just assuming that the first room had been overlooked between check out and the next check in. When we got to the second room, it was even worse than the first. Hairs in the shower, all over the floor, and in the bed. There were stains on the sheets, the refrigerator and microwave were filthy, and the floors were so dirty that none of us even took our shoes off. I called the front desk and asked for towels and a clean blanket, since the one on our bed was dirty, but mostly because I wanted her to see the condition of the room. When I showed her a couple of the issues, she said we’d have to talk to management in the morning and that she couldn’t do anything about it. She couldn’t guarantee a refund or a discount. We chose to find another hotel and went to the front desk to get a refund. The woman told us we’d have to come back in the morning to talk to management about a possible refund. We insisted that surely there was a manager on call that she could contact, since we didn’t prepare to spend an extra $100-200 that night for a second hotel room. She finally called a manager and simply told him that we “didn’t like the two rooms” she gave us and that the rooms “weren’t good enough” for us. They eventually refunded the money and we were stuck looking for a new hotel at 11:00 at night.
