I’ve stayed here twice now, both nights within a week of each other. The first night was awful; it was a noisy rundown room with a gross bathroom sink. The only reason I stayed a second time was out of convenience. Good thing I did! The second night was completely different! Clean, quiet and very comfortable room!

Filthy. Dangerous. Smells like urine. Homeless population in the hotel.

I loved the access to the patio and pool through the back doors of the rooms.It was nice to be able to sit out in the evening and morning... The morning breakfast options we excellent. I enjoyed having the options of hard boiled eggs or scrambled. Sausage and biscuits and gravy.

Handicapped husband had to walk around the building to check in because staff had just mopped floor and doors to lobby were bungee corded closed. Otherwise fair room, older but clean. Slept well. Good breakfast provided.

Really didn't like anything about the motel but it was close to the theater, poor side of town, stray cats, dark atmosphere, only one TV channel and it was whinny Republicans, couldn't serve ourselves at breakfast, so slow walked out and paid for my meal elsewhere, no elevator, price was ok but expected better.
