Very Nice Stay

Pros: Size of room and cleanliness
Cons: The hotel did NOT have an elevator
Location: Hotel is well situated.
Staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. However, there is no elevator. Anyone staying on the 2nd floor has to carry bags up the stairs (only bad point about this hotel).

Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you found our staff to be friendly and our rooms to be clean. While we do not currently have an elevator at our property, our staff is more than happy to assist guests with any luggage needing to be carried upstairs. I hope you choose to stay with us again!

skid row

Pros: the desk personnel
Cons: see above--needs updating, dramatic updating. maybe tear down and start over
Location: convenient to interstate--but watch out for traffic if you're from the country
Very pleasant staff. However....old, very old motel without much upkeep, dark, lengthy hallways, smaller than usual room, teeny tiny bathroom. AC sounded like express subway train.
