We had a coffee maker in our room, but it didn't work and we were not supplied with any coffee. Cleaning lady was rude on one of the days because we didn't have the do not disturb sign on the door. She rudely reached past me to grab the sign from the inside door knob. The pool is a joke!!!
The beds and pillows were so comfortable, which is very important. The refrigerator was way better than expected. I brought a lot of food with and was able to fit it all. Most hotel's have tiny fridges.

the fan in the bathroom when we had it on you could smell what we thought was marijuana. sometimes it was really bad.

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.
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.

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?
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.

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
It was a comfortable place to stay the night with convenient shopping centers nearby.
