OK Hotel, but could use improvement!

Pros: Friendly staff.
Cons: Noisy outside Trucks & traffic were bothersome. Noisy showers from other rooms (maybe getting sound-proofing would help.
Location: Poor location: Near noisy highway and very difficult to get to! We weren't interested in staying in town so have no comment about things to do.
Access is very difficult! Quite noisy during sleeping hours: (9:00 pm - 6:00 am). Linen, towels, etc. were OK but not as great as we usually like. Reasonably priced - but not as well supplied as we'd like. Quite Clean at first appearance, but not so clean under the beds & furniture. We managed to sleep fairly well, but could have been better. Our primary desire is to sleep Very Well in a Quiet, Clean Room. Personally, we don't expect to return another time.

Waste of money!

Cons: unsafe, in disrepair
We pulled thru and kept on going. This place was a dump! I can never get my money back, but it looked anything but safe and clean. People were sitting outside in front of their rooms cooking food on little hibachi grills, curtains looked ragged and torn, peeling paint, the pool was nonexistent, patio furniture was rusted and topsy turvey, weeds, overgrown and looked completely in disrepair. We checked into one of the two other hotels that were next to it. It was so long ago that I've forgotten which one, but I would NEVER stay in this particular hotel unless I suddenly became a homeless vagrant!
