Solid budget motel. A little fraying around the edges, but that's the case for all budget motels I've stayed over the past year. Room was clean, mattress and bedding were very good, good water pressure, good wi-fi. Lots of outlets. Free breakfast was minimal, but most of them are during the pandemic.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your rating & comments. Sorry to check you in a room with soaking bed. Due to heavy rain that night, unexpectedly there was water leak. Glad to know you had good stay after moving to new room. Hope to see you again. Regards

Room was simple but clean and quiet. Bed was comfortable but pillows were a bit too full for my liking.

It is in a sketchy area. Lots of trucks go by. The address is actually Truckers Lane. I had no problem parking and the staff was very nice.

Dirty room uncomfortable bed and there was a homeless encampment across from our room. A loud contractor was put in the room breside us and we got zero sleep. The shower had no water pressure and the whole location of the property just felt unsafe

Needed a place to sleep. Served the purpose. A little noisy when the neighbors came home but expected in a small motel.
