the staff was rude. the staff fought with each other- never got maid service the rooms were filthy the room smelled like a pet cemetery
The price. Nothing else.
Wasn't clean. The bedsheets and towels were duties.
I'm glad there was no carpeting in the room--felt that it was cleaner. Good location and staff is friendly.
Poor value for the money. The continental breakfast consists of coffee and danish--there were 2 items only and I wonder how long they'd been there, since I saw the same 2 items the next day. Fortunately, it is next to an IHOP. The fridge and microwave were on the balcony when we arrived, but were moved inside the room the next day. The bed was not made our second day there.
i like two ladies who checked me in, the pool and location
i didntlike the young lady who was with maids she was so rude i couldnt believe she was the daughter of the owner she needed a plac. i tried to help
Design on bedspread
It was old and not updated For some reason, we had an extra door in our room that lead outside Bed was hard We had no remote leaky faucets (the handles were old and falling apart) check out was at 11 and at 10:58, we had a knock at door asking for our key
Filthy and very run down. The price was outrageous the dust was very nasty, the bathroom was disgusting and floors had bugs
It was near by the concert.
It smells weird when we first opened the door after cheching in. It has ROACHS! If you are a wheelchair user you won't fit in restroom door! The price! WOW! they charges li they were 5 stars hotel! Do NOT book in this hotel!
Cockroaches, stinky room, way over priced
Nothing the place was a dump
Everything, it was just a dirty place
The fact that there was a refrigerator and microwave in the room.
The windows were broken, holes in the walls, holes in the door. Bed creeping and cracking bed. 1 tiny bar of soap. Lock on the door looked broken but wasnt.The accommodations were horrible. Motel 6 is a much better place to stay. You really should consider taking this place off your list. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
There were stains on the sheets and cigarette holes on the bed covers and the carpet looks like it wasn't vacuumed .
This was a perfect location close to the freeway, food, gas & to the casino. I would be very likely to recommend this location to friends and family. I would like to find additional locations for future stays. The fridge & microwave were clean and actually worked very well. I was amazed by the cleanliness of the room. A very quiet calm location.
The only thing I can complain about is the attitude of one of the attendants who checked us in she was a little rude.
Liked how close the hotel was located off the freeway and having an IHOP right next door for breakfast. Rooms are located next to the freeway, but couldn't hear the cars. We liked the privacy, vending machines availability and being able to park a truck and trailer safely and able to see both from our room. Owners are very nice and accommodating. We arrived around 9 p.m. and was happy to still have a room after 8 hours of travel. The room was nice, clean, great deal for the price.
We didn't like to see plastic bag trash on the grounds. Didn't like that the room key only allowed entry to the back of the motel near the freeway and dumpster, kinda dark. The air conditioner didn't keep us cool at night even though it's winter. Need to use reflective lights around the service button; it blends in the white wall and can't be seen for late night check-in. Also, someone was trying to get in our room by jiggling the card keyed door handle from the "freeway" side of the hotel.
Close to the convention. IHOP restaurant next door!
Bathroom was dirty, hair on the floor. Soap dish in the shower was scummy, soap provided was very hard unable to get a lather. late phone call asking if we would like to smoke a 'bowl'! "Opps, wrong room".
Freeway access was good. Wifi worked.
Old room that smelled bad. Dead roach inside refrigerator. Old tv with bad reception. Old appliances that sat on and old table.Stains on bedding and towels. Cigarette smell in the non smoking room. Chairs were heavily stained.carpet needs to be replaced, old, dirty and smells bad.
Close to freeway. Had fridge and microwave. Fit my budget.
Noise from traffic. Drawers not clean.
