4/10 Fair

Run down and overpriced
No offense, but this place should be priced a lot less. It was dirty, the view out the window was disgusting, there were animals all over the lobby.

8/10 Very good

Location was convenient, blackout curtains were nice, but still hear road noise. Furnishings a bit dated. Advertised as having breakfast, but there was none offered.

Acceptable accommodations
Front desk was extremely helpful in meeting our needs. Although the property is not updated - it was acceptable for a 1 or 2 night stay.

Great staff but won’t be going back
Front desk staff was super helpful to start with a positive. She had to go through three rooms and upgrade us before we found a room that didn’t smell overwhelmingly bad. The first was cigarette smoky with heavy air freshener, the second was very musty. The third was the very kindly offered upgrade and was odor free. Unfortunately though there were notes left behind on the nightstand from previous guests and the air conditioner worked very inconsistently leaving the room hot most of the night.

6/10 Good

The receptionist was very respectful and accomodating. Her daughter being there with her was actually a very cute touch to my wife and I. In the room though housekeeping left durty towels behind the bathroom door. Definitely a no-no. Hotel in pretty bad shape but a decent deal.for the money.

Not-so-pet friendly.
A decent motel especially good for the price. Despite being rated "pet friendly" on, they do not accept cats. This is more's fault than theirs, perhaps, but be forwarned.
