Bare Bones Budget Motel
Room was not very clean overall. Found items from previous guests in the corners. Furniture was old and dirty. Housekeeping only came once during our 3 night stay. WiFi was very limited and spotty. Rooms are not insulated well. Even though hotels claims to be pet friendly they originally tried to cancel my reservation as I noted I was traveling with a service animal. They did change their mind after a tense phone call with them.

Great hotel, great location and very clean.
Our stay was wonderful. This hotel was close to so many things and very easy to get to. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was large and very comfortable. My only complaint would be the very loud train that came through 4-5 times throughout the evening and night. The rest of the stay was great!

2/10 Poor

Worst stay ever DO NOT STAY HERE AT ALL COSTS! We was moved 4 times in one day from check in! 1st room the door was broken so was moved to room next door, the 2nd room has lit cigarettes on the floor when this hotel is none smoking plus the toilet was not working properly and flooded the bathroom, 3rd room was in the smaller building and it was very sketchy and the door was opened was not cleaned it has dead bugs on floor and table and live baby roaches in the beds I took pictures to prove it it was 12 at night when they moved us in there was told to make my Own bed and the beds caused us to have serous back pain was like sleeping on a metal bench hard I got up next morning before we could not sleep and we got moved again the 4th time. The fridge did not work I was also told manager does not work on weekends and haven’t heard anything from her at all! This hotel was the worst experience we ever had and will not be coming back it needs an update on beds and toilets and furniture and housekeepers they do not clean at all! Plus when checking in was very stressful with the lady telling me my debit card was not debit when it clearly says it on front and back of my card! The photos for this hotel please do not believe them! We paid over 200$ for 2 nights and I swear this hotel is not even worth that more like 50-60$ a night! Plus has not breakfast in the mornings just coffee only! Very upset with my stay and had no management to speak to about it and about seeing what could better
Dead water bug in 3rd room was moved to
Dead flies in 3rd room moved in
Another baby roach alive in bed in 3rd room was moved to

Comfortable stay
Everything was good except a truck with a boat parked right in front of our room on our first night. The guest was very inconsiderate. Husband complained to management and we received a little compensation. Over all it’s a nice stay.
