Staff were great, before, during and after my stay. It was clean and comfortable.
The room was very clean. The price is awesome for all the amenities. Staff was friendly.
I couldn't find a thing on this visit that I didn't like.
the fan in the bathroom when we had it on you could smell what we thought was marijuana. sometimes it was really bad.
The bed was better than the motel we usually stay at and the room was much cleaner as well. We were pleasantly surprised to walk in to a room that smelled great. Bonus, it stayed that way for our entire 9 day stay. The bathroom was a nice size and had lots of storage space.
Parking was a little bit of a nightmare in a truck because of the parking lot shape. The parking lot is very small. Also, when we first got there we were not even sure how to get in to the parking lot. Some signs alpng the street or better directions on the website would help.
Bugs here an there, mostly in the bathroom. Crouches.
Breakfast and Bed
Wifi was really poor on third level
I don't smoke, appreciate the accommodation of early check in.... But not into a stinky cigarettes Smelling room.
Very Noisy Rooms
Continental breakfast could offer a bit more.
I loved the price, and the coffee in the room, along with the fridge and microwave. I also like the fact that we could fit a roll away bed in there easily. The location was also convenient.
The beds were hard. The vent didn't work in the bathroom, which had no windows. I don't like saunas, and I'd like to be able to dry off completely after a shower. The breakfast had no protein source except milk. My daughter has Celiac disease, so the only thing she could eat without getting very sick was an apple. I was hoping they would at least have yogurt or hard boiled eggs. The message bar on the phone would not stop flashing from the moment we arrived. We called 3 times that night and were told that maintenance would be called. After 11pm, I finally unplugged the phone. When I plugged it in the next evening to see if we actually had messages, we were told to dial 777 and follow the prompts. I did and there was 1 blank (nothing there) message from 4 days before we arrived. I was able to discard it and it the phone stopped flashing. Why didn't the guy we spoke to the night before just tell us we could do that?
good location close to interstate and restaurants staff was helpful rooms were clean
sometimes some of the yes were noisy the parking was not that good
clean, surprisingly nice, embossed bath towels, clean linens on comfortable beds, coffee pot in room, waffles!! for breakfast, excellent WiFi connection. Louis (staff) was attentive, responsive, and professional.
comforters were thin & scratchy. staff (except Louis) seemed inconvenienced by any request. requested smoking room yet were put in non smoking room at check in.
It was a comfortable place to stay the night with convenient shopping centers nearby.
I didn't like that the front desk didn't have our online reservation in their computer, apparently Booking.com didn't forward the reservation and we almost missed out on this particular motel and room accommodations. At that moment it apparently appeared in the system and we were able to have the room. This was our first time using Booking.com and it was borderline of being disastrous! Also that the room had an ironing board but no iron available which is standard in most motels/hotels
We were very well pleased with everything
bed was very comfortable. We were in unit 319, a back unit, which was also very quiet.
trying to figure out how to get in to the place when going south on Magnolia.
The hotel was conveniently located, right off the interstate, with shops & dining close by.
The morning desk lady named KD was so nice .The breakfast area is small but they dont let it run out of food Rooms are clean which we have 2 and smell good whrn we entered for the first time Overall Highly revommended for that price range
Parking ! I just wish they Will remove the fence separating the hotel from the diner
The front desk clerk on New Years Day was the best. Her happiness to help and keep the breakfast stocked was very welcoming.
The bitter lady at the front desk on Saturday 1/4/14 was rude and lazy. When asked about the empty breakfast items she simply replied with "I know" and did nothing just sat there in her chair. When another customer came in and asked for more eggs she said hold on one min. waited one min and then started to clean up the breakfast area. when asked about the eggs she said "oh it's 9am breakfast is closed." I stayed there one week. Most days the maid service never replaced the in room coffee. The sheets were never changed and the floor towel was on the floor and dirty but never replaced. The maid service like the bitter lady at the front desk seem to be just out right lazy.
