The night was peaceful, the beds were comfy. I had a nice, free breakfast at this motel, and enjoyed their service as well. This...

I had to work out of town and I was driving by and spotted the Relax Inn. It didn't look so bad from the outside plus it was right off Memorial Drive, which is near the mall (don't let the location fool you). It was $50 plus tax for the night. I didn't have high expectations (ex: swimming pool, Internet,...

Maid service very spotty. They might clean your room and might not. Rooms need painted (paint doesn't cost that much guys)....looker like it hadn't been painted in years. Maids might want to look at the walls in the bathroom cause there are boogers stuck to the walls....yuck. last thing there needs to be some sort of light by the beds....
