I have mixed reviews on this hotel. My sister booked 2 rooms for 3 nights on the last weekend of July. My sister's room is on the 2nd floor while our room is on the first floor. Staff stated that they don't have available rooms which are next to each other which is weird since if we booked 2 rooms...

Reviewed 8 May 2012

The motel was by a freeway, which is very convenient. If you like it quiet, this isn't the place, The noise from the freeway was very noticeable on Friday night, not so much on Saturday night. The walls must not be soundproof, as the guests on Friday night were very audible and they had their TV on all night long....
