The property is not in good condition and needs lots of maintenance. Even the basics of an ice machine is not available. Pictures online must have been from when it was 1st built. I knew I was staying at a budget property, but this was not good. Go somewhere else.

Everything was great. Maybe a little noisy. The staff was great. Especially Tracy. Too bad the management decided not to do breakfast. Orange would be nice.

Quite scary really. A noisy and very ugly room. Possibly one of the most unattractive places Ibe stayed in in my long career if traveling around the US. Sheets smelled dirty. Net drapes filthy. Very noisy. No thought it care given to amenities. Perfect for drug addicts and the exhausted.

This facility would be better advertised as an airport parking lot rather than a motel. Had difficulty finding parking each nite of one week stay, they apparently oversell their spots not worrying about guests. Room was adequate for our stay but in poor repair and needing updating. Nite clerk not friendly at all and room was not cleaned one day of our stay. Breakfast was ok but just the basics, rolls and cereal. Airport shuttle not available as advertised. Internet poor.

Horrible experience

Pros: nothing
Cons: For paying $109 a night it sure could use some major improving!
When I arrived the staff was friendly, but than I went into the room, it was not that great but it will do, than the remote control (you need 2) one to turn on the tv and the other to change channel, expect it only worked if you pressed it hard. We ended up turning off the tv not worth the fight with the remote. Thank went to iron clothes, there is an ironing board, but no iron :( we left to go to dinner came back and no parking space, they had a guy telling us to park where there wasn't a parking area, near the entrance, and he even questioned if we had the marked pass to park there (Yes we did) during the night the air condition started to blow very little air, by the morning it was better to open the door to let cool air in than to have the thing working that no longer had air blowing. Went to check out, asked for a receipt, they told me that it would be sent to my email. Checked my email today, nothing there.

Cheap and beds are uncomfortable

Pros: Price was reasonable for the area
Cons: Beds and air conditioners have to go
