Didn't expect too much from this motel to begin with, but the price was right. Arrived at 1:10 p.m. after a long and weary plane ride, only to find the office closed. Didn't open until about 2 p.m. On a positive note, they dropped the $5/day parking charge because of my "patience," and the room was actually pretty clean. However, that's where the positive words end. The negatives about this place: Maid did NOT clean my room for the two days that I was there, the internet connectivity sucks -- couldn't get a steady signal at all, and the back of the room is only 10 feet or so from a very busy avenue, so lots of street noise throughout the day. Again, it's definitely not a 4-star motel, so you get what you pay for. So don't expect much at all.

Hotel did not clear the room in the morning so when we come back for the night it’s just how we left it in the morning.... I complain and the person said I was supposed to tell them so why you paid the same money if it’s not going to be clean
