If I could post the picture, you would understand! Shamefully over priced! Everything, with the exception of breakfast, was completely unacceptable. Keep in mind, you only get 2 breakfast coupons for every night, regardless of the number of people that booked the room. The backdoor to the room had roughly a 2" open gap at the bottom of the door. Rain came in a soaked the carpet. The electronic lock on the door had been taken apart, so they took the inside lock off the front door and put it on the back door, leaving no inside lock for the front door. There was significant dirt build up behind the faucets, bathroom was not clean, no bath fan, the heater was either full heat all night, or no heat, and we could hear every move from the rooms around and above us. I had to park down the street in front of another motel, not in their parking lot, but on the street, because there is nothing for parking. The back of the motel is so sketchy, I would not be walking around there at night. Way to much loud and fast traffic. Checking out, the lady in front of me said that the smell in her room was unbearable. They had dropped their bags off quickly after checking in and rushed out to get food. They wouldn't allow them to change rooms, because they had to tell them of the smell immediately after going into the room. Wouldn't recommend this place to the homeless! What a complete waste of way too much money!

The best part about staying here was the breakfast (but only 2 breakfasts are included with hotel price).This is a motel and the walls are pretty thin. We thought someone was knocking on our door when they were actually knocking on the door next to our room. The beds are awful, it reminds me of an air mattress so when one person moves, the other person moves as well. And the fitted sheets does not quite fit so they come off.

Supposedly had access from a back door (parking) and a courtyard. You couldn’t get into the room from the back because lock wasn’t working. The courtyard door worked the first time but when we returned after dinner it wouldn’t open. Took about a half hour to get someone to get it opened and then we were told not to lock the door as they weren’t going to be able to reopen it!!! No offer of refund or to be moved. Bad bad decision to stay here. When I spoke to the front desk they said oh well oops sorry

Room was okay but the shower wasn't great. Tempature kept going between REALLY cold and REALLY hot spontaneously, and the shower head was made for kids, not adults.
