    Stay at your own risk.

    There was people arguing on the second floor and parking lot. Almost ending in an altercation. Security and office people went to separate people. Some people at this motel apparently live there. There was also a bed bug issue which was emailed to the attention of the motel.

    Hookers and addicts

    Room was discusting,even the lady at the front said I should "go check it out first" I took it because I had already paid and it was late. Ppl high on drugs outside, blankets had cigarette burns all over it. The bathtub was so nasty didn't even get in it. Pay 40 bucks more and get a nice room somewhere else instead.

    DONOT STAY HERE! Place is discusting!U been warned

    I’ve never left a review before for any hotel stay but after this experience i felt the need to leave one in order to warn others. I’ve stayed in cheap motels before and believe me i am not a picky person. This place was unbelievably discusting. For starters the parking lot is full of drug addicts and the place is terribly run down. When we entered the hotel room we immediately noticed the bed sheets were stained and had holes in them. In the bed we also found dead bugs everywhere. The carpet floors were also dirty and could tell they haven’t been vacuumed for a while. The restroom was also discusting no need to elaborate further. Trust me donot stay here you are better off sleeping in your car.

    Lovely view of the mountains. The area has a few homeless folks hanging around, but they were all courteous, without exception. We'd stay there again.

    Was strange to see a man walk in front of my truck while i was smoking. I went back to my room and a door down he was trying to break into the laundry area. Loud banging a floor up in middle of the night

    The reception lady was awesome and very helpful. The hotel itself seems to be in disrepair , while the outside are looked unkempt and dirty.

    STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!

    If you like hotels with crackheads and homeless people, this is the place for you. They were wondering all over the hotel at all hours day and night. The staff are not friendly or helpful AT ALL! I dont write many reviews, but this place was just horrible.
