"Cheap, and you get what you paid for."
Staff was sincere and wanted to be helpful, but the management stye is obviously not in the infrastructure of the property. The large swimming pool is the jewel of the property, but it is getting ratty too. Excellent price and central location, but tattered and tired facility.

"Some improvements needed"
Breakfast was good with many choices. The pool was clean and large. The room was a good size but was not an efficiency including fridge and microwave. The hotel is going green so if you don't want your towels and sheets cleaned every day you have that option. The hotel is willing to accommodate you as best they can.

"Super 8 Alexandris"
I was surprised to find this room has doors opening both to the parking lot and to the hall. I did not care for that. It's not in a great part of town and isn't in the best condition. The room was clean and the bed slept well but I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

"Christmas Vacation"
Staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotel is dated and in so-so condition at best. However for a short or long stay on a tight budget its not bad. Plenty of dining very close by both chain and local. I rebooked another stay for later in the spring.

"Smelly"
First room I was in backed up to a Shell Gas Station, I listened to rap music all night from the cars getting gas. Why? Because the glass door installed in 1960 had the original locks removed and the holes were just, well... holes! They had chains keeping the door closed, I felt real safe after seeing this. Got in the shower and half way through the shower I was standing in calf deep water. YUCK! Asked to be moved to a room, upstairs if possible to keep someone from coming through the raggedy pieced together back door. My wish was granted and I was moved to a room upstairs in the next building. I opened the door to go down the hall and the stench of 2 week old cooking grease smacked me in the face. I sucked it up and got to my room, ran a bath of hot water. Relaxing when the plaster off the ceiling begins to fall in the tub with me. Enough of that! Out and into bed which the mattress reminds me much of New Orleans or a SOUP BOWL! All in all I had a great... EXIT!

"Bad as in real bad"
If wouldn't have so late for checking in I would have left and went to another hotel. The room was dirty and it stunk some kind of bad, so bad I went to Walmart to get a candle so that it would make it smell a little better. I ask the front desk for some help and he told the house keepers was gone for the day and he was there by himself. I will never stay at that junk called a hotel again, I just soon sleep in the truck. Very poor ratings for a franchise motel.

"Stay somewhere else."
This hotel is surrounded by truck drivers and prostitutes walking through all hours of the night. The only way to get more peace and quiet is to sleep on the airport runway during peak travel hours. Speaking of the airport, this hotel falsely advertised shuttle service to the airport.

"luck of the draw"
Having stayed here recently, we did not hesitate to book a room, this time the room was in poor condition and not clean, it was less than acceptable, however the desk clerk advised us there was no other room available. We won't come back although the last stay was okay, apparently it depends on what room you are assigned.

"Ok for the price"
They need to work on their key system. We had to go to office each night because our card would not work. After the first night we left early to go to work got back around 8 that evening to find they had not been in our room to clean or leave clean towels, then had to wait about 30 mins or so to get towels so we could shower. That is not ok with me. Other than that I guess ok for the price.

"No Sleep"
I stayed there in June it was great. I got a room on a different side this time. i did not get mcuh sleep. They had a fight in the middle of the night outside my room. The persons car alarm was going off for about 5-10 minutes. The night time staff should have called the police or did any thing. I didn't see anyone at all. I reported it to the daytime staff. I thought they could have done a better job with controling people who are out of control.

I guess you definetley get what you pay for here. With Cheap prices also come a dingy dirtiy room uncomfortable bed, and unfriendly service. The air conditioner was so noisey and the bed so uncomfortable it kept me awake most of the night. It's super tough too sleep in this hotel anyway. I would not reccomend.

"Pessimo motel!"
Ho provato questo motel perché dovendo fare un viaggio on the road avevo sentito molti commenti positivi sulle catene di motel americane e questa era una delle più conosciute. In realtà la mia esperienza è stata tutt’altro che positiva… Il motel si trova attaccato all’autostrada e non è in una posizione molto silenziosa; è frequentato poi da molti camionisti che ripartono alle 5 del mattino svegliando tutte le persone del complesso. La zona è molto buia e gli insetti si attaccano alle lucine vicine agli ingressi delle camere al piano terra…quindi veloci ad entrare se non volete trovarvi brutte sorprese in camera! La camera ha la classica moquette americana che non è il massimo della pulizia con l’arredamento un po’ datato e rovinato…e se si è “fortunati” si trova anche qualche lattina o bottiglia di birra abbandonata nei cassetti… Esperienza assolutamente da non ripetere!
