8.0 Great
Pros:Very quiet and peaceful. Wonderful staff.
Cons:Outdated television and it kept on losing signal. The refridgerator was noisy. Other than that everything else was good.
3.4 Poor
Cons:Constant vehicles in and out. People in and out all night. Loud running water. Over priced. Hole in tub. Oh and the police showed
8.2 Great
Pros:Reasonable price, Easy access, nice staff
Cons:Pillows were poor. Bed comfort ok
3.1 Poor
Pros:The woman who works behind the counter was nice.
Cons:I don't know what planet the other reviewers for this place are on. I booked this room based on reviews, but was horrified when I drove into this motel. It is in a VERY SCARY part of town. There was a homeless man sitting outside one of the rooms the entire time I was there. It is right next to tattoo and massage parlors. Everything in the room was very dated and there was no outlet by the sink. I was by myself for this stay as I was attending a conference, so I was very uneasy all night.
7.4 Good
Pros:Close to downtown area.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The room are excellent
8.0 Great
Pros:Clean, big rooms. Relatively quiet.
Cons:No restaurant on premises or near.
5.1 Passable
Pros:I liked the fact I was upgraded to the jacuzzi suite. The bed was also very comfortable with a good TV setup.
Cons:There was no staff available to check me in when I arrived I literally had to seek someone out when I arrived. This occurred again upon leaving. When i would ask cleaning stag a question they didn't speak enough English to even understand this is not something which I'm opposed to however in a touristic setting where staff is already scarce I wasn't impressed. Also the vending machines had little options to begin with so when half the options including water was sold out I was ready to leave.
8.8 Great
Pros:Nice staff, clean rooms. Will definitely consider staying here again.
