I checked in and went to visit my friend in the hospital. I came to he room about 8 pm. The room had This dingy feeling. I just wanted t get to sleep because I was to tired. I wanted to shower. No shampoo no conditioner no washcloths. I called the front desk and they said I had to go get them in the office. I got in bed instead thinking I’ll shower in the morning. I had room 129. The bed had so many lumps it was like sleeping on a bunch of towels. So many divots in the bed. 😩. I called and was moved upstairs for “a better bed “. It felt like a $20 mattress. He people in the side of me were in and out making so much noise. Awful night i feel like crap!!!! Scratchy sheets super lumpy pillows. Don’t stay here if you want to rest.

Just acceptable.

motor hotel style, very loud parking lot, can hear people come and go. Didn't feel particularly safe. Room was just acceptable. Bed cover stained.

Too noisy..

Pros: My room was clean and I liked the location.
Cons: The outside of the motel could use a facelift (the building's age is obvious)
Location: Great location!
I was most disappointed with the work going on at the motel. Contractors were working on the roof on the wing where my room was located. On both Sat and Sun morning, workers started very early so I didn't get the rest I was hoping for and the walls seemed really thin as I could hear people in the rooms next to me and people walking by my door outside. There seemed to be a lot of people loitering around the parking lot (although it was a weekend)....
