Stayed for only 2 nights but felt great staying here. I noticed the pool was empty and the furniture seemed a bit outdated but for the budget price and quick stay its a convenient place to stay. Clean and neat rooms and room service everyday. Great restaurants nearby and a supermarket right across the road way. I will be coming... More

Great staff and very excited about their place. Rooms are okay but for the price(under $60) and for one night it is perfect. Online it says breakfast however, we did not see anything when we were checking out, perhaps it was too late. But overall, great stay.

Third or fourth time this place has come up in an independent google search. Saw a new person on check in and still as friendly as others in previous years. Room clean and tidy with all we need shame others think they are buying the place to live in rather than a room to sleep the night in.

very nice, spacious room, nicely renovated; microwave/fridge; staff is working hard on making this motel a beautiful place; don't let you fool by exterior which is not quite yet at the level of the rooms

Like other reviewers, this is an ok place to stay, for a stopover. I found the guy who checked us in a bit surly, and not helpful. The fridge did work, and the A/C worked, but on noisy side. Furnishings and decor were worn and room not really clean, but adequate (use flip flops to walk around in!) Had to... More

We were traveling from LA to Vegas and this was a good place for a short break. I booked the room through Hotels.com. When I arrived, we realized I accidentally booked for the following night. The staff was very accommodating and made a quick change and adding an additional $15 to the total. We were tired and just needed a... More

Not the most clean, new or comfortable place I've ever stayed, but really cheap and met our needs for a night on the road. We didn't want to spend much, just an overnight bed and it was quite adequate and the owners were courteous and we had a snack before we took off in the morning. Not a destination hotel,... More

Very friendly reception and one of the fastest internets we have encountered at a US motel. However the room was shabby, dilapidated with unsafe door ( door didn't close properly ) and the bathroom was not clean. Bed was however comfortable and clean. Use if no other option !

This was a very clean motel. The rooms were big, and the manager /owner was very nice and helpful. We found nothing to complain about, and the rate for our room, 2 queen beds, was the most affordable rate we encountered during our trip from Tennessee. I would definitely recommend this motel to family and friends.
