    No one at front desk to check in. Arrived 12:50, finally got checked in after 3. Was in town for daughters softball tournament. Our daughter and one adult was staying with her overnight. We were being harassed that 3 of us where there during the day to relax between games. Had room for 3 nights. Only stayed 1 and decided to use room for place to rest between games instead. Air conditioning did not work properly so it was unbearable overnight. On night 2 we had her stay with a teammate and we opted to drive home instead. Night 3 we all went home. The 1 night we did stay it was noisy and we woke up to loud banging early in the morning. The smell of cigarette and marijuana smoke was unbearable going to and from our room. We felt very uncomfortable and out of place especially having a child there. The only positive I can say is that it was conveniently located to softball fields. I would not stay here again nor recommend it to anyone, especially if traveling with children.

    End result - very good

    When i first arrived from a long days work I was tired. There was no one at the desk. After ringing the bell multiple times, to no avail. Went back to my car, attempted to reach I was unsuccessful. I decided to try ringing the bell again and Mr. Patel showed up. After he checked me in, I went to my room and I was pleasantly surprised. It was very clean, new bed linens and towels. He told me that it was a newly renovated. The television had Roku, so I was able to download YouTube TV and watch my programs. The bed was comfortable, pillows were ok, but overall it was good. Very quiet and I felt safe. Upon checking out I met Mrs. Patel, very nice lady. I think that if you decide to stay here you'll be pleased. Don't be deceive by the outside appearance - it is a very good stay. On my next weekend getaway, I'm going to stay there again. Keep up the good work.

    5 stars!

    The room was completely remodeled and extremely clean and fresh. The beds were comfortable with soft pillows and spotless bedding. There was a fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and other amenities. It was very quiet. I had 2 rooms for my family and we were all very pleased.

    Can you believe I am laying in the bed Sunday night and they rented my room and someone walked in on me. For some reason they’re not cleaning my room I have stayed there now for four days

    Can you believe you pay $80 good night and they do not even clean your room. They don’t even make your bed. You have to go to the front desk to get your towels. They will rent you a room while you’re laying in the bed.

    Basic, clean room

    The first room we were assigned had no hot water. When we pointed that out, we were reassigned to a room which had recently been redecorated and everything worked. There is free wifi, but it was not high speed. The room was clean and the location was about 1/2 mile from downtown.
