That it is quiet clean and comfortable
It was very overpriced. We paid 158 dollars for a 40 motel. We would never have stayed here if it wasn't necessary. The neighborhood the motel was in was questionable.
The staff was very friendly and did everything to make our check in as easy as it could be.
No light in the bathroom.
TV didn't work, pillows were very cheap quality, and when we asked for more so that we could be more comfortable, they said no. The bath towels are not for adult they are for children because they are super small and thin. No hair dryers. The mini fridge froze our food. When we asked for more towels the guy said,"why do you want more, you already have 2!". Wow.
There was no iron box for pressing clothes.
Excellent staff. Very supportive. Indian lady was very kind staff. I enjoyed my stay for the money I paid. This was cheaper one at the time I booked, I worried and expected it to be bad, but this motel was definitely worth for what I paid.
location was convient, facilities was better than expected.. room was clean and big bed was comfortable.
no negative comments
Friendliness of the staff and value for the money which means room accommodations for the amount of money spent.
Hotel had bugs. Booking.com said it came with breakfast and all it was was coffee and a few pastries.
The beds were very uncomfortable and the rooms smelled like smoke even though they were advertised as non-smoking rooms. We reserved 2 rooms which they said were next to each other and they were on 2 different floors. They also claimed there was free breakfast, but there was only coffee and muffins.
We liked that it was the cheapest we could find for rooms with 2 queen beds.
Wifi didn't work. Staff was rude. Air conditioner didn't work. They have a mandatory room cleaning policy- even if you don't want service and say so, the manager will come in with a key anyway. Do not stay here.
Price and location were decent.
Wifi didn't work in room.
Clean friendly staff
I could catch a wifi signal which was needed to get some business done.
It was private.
The rooms were big and clean. Sheets were fresh. Overall the stay was great. So great in fact that I extended for a week. Staff were friendly and engaging. The muffin for continental breakfast was delicious. I say it's a great value for the money.
Poor breakfast. Bed too firm.
Quick response to a problem with bathroom light. Clean room and good pillows. Quiet during the night. AC and Heater worked well and quiet.
It was quiet and peaceful, my partner and I weren't bothered, except one day when someone was playing knock knock ditch. I booked it at booking.com and got a great deal on a week stay. Kind staff and if you need anything they will get it for you.
found some bugs in room on walls and in microwave but I tried to kill them off myself so not a huge problem
great value, good location
