We read mixed reviews about this place and when we arrived we were pretty unsure but looks can be deceiving! The room is a big size, clean and the bed is very comfortable. Staff were nice, had no problems so only met them on check in. Ride to the city by uber is about $8 around 7pm and about $12...

Management calls us Sunday morning to kick us out of our room because they have to work on their carpet. We checked in on Friday morning and they did not inform us about this at all. We tried to reason with them with that and they said they are informing us then and there. Unprofessional, disrespectful, and rude. On top...

Location is great and the hotel is cheap, however you will quickly notice why. The room was clean, but it smelled like weed and curry in the room and especially in the hallway. Bathroom was relatively clean but definitely needs an upgrade. Smoke detector was covered with a plastic bag. Some strange people were walking in the hallway and the...

Room smelled horrible. The shower did not work. The comforter is so thin it resembles a shower curtain. Saw two german cockroaches on the door frame of my room. Worst experience I have had in my life. The mattress is so uncomfortable it hurt my back.

The very look of its surroundings and the caged lot screams "run away," but inside are the largest standard motel rooms I have encountered and done up in a very modern decor. This comes at some price though as the raised platform beds, while chic, were Hades on the back after a day or two. Give me a good box...

Stayed 3 nights. Would come again if ever in the area. Very Affordable. No carpet but I actually like it that way. Housekeepers were very helpful and always greeted me with smiles. They even gave hugs on my last morning.
