Did not feel safe here
I was in town for my brother's wedding and, being a holiday weekend, had limited choices of hotels for a low price. This hotel is the perfect example of "you get what you pay for". The room smelled funny; I thought it smelled of urine, my traveling companion said it just smelled like musty, wet floor. It is in a TERRIBLE neighborhood. I did not feel safe there at all. There is no air conditioning but I was hesitant to leave the window open because the screen was broken and one window actually didn't even have a working lock. There are no tables/chairs even though the room was for 3 people. The only pros to this hotel are that the young lady at the front desk is VERY nice and the hotel is located right next to a Mt Mike's Pizza place. I do not recommend this hotel.

Buyer beware! Fire alarms at 4:00 AM.
Buyer beware! Although this is a cheap option, you get what you pay for. The air conditioning unit did not work in our room, so we had to use the fan. The worst part, however, is that the fire alarm went off in our room (only) at 4:00 AM and wouldn't stop. No one was at the front desk and no one picked up the phone. We were finally able to disable the alarm on our own at 4:30 AM. The next day, I went to talk to management regarding this issue, but the manager was not there and he kept avoiding me and refusing to answer my calls over the next few days. In other words, if you have any problems do not expect to talk to anyone who can or will help. In all my years of traveling I have never encountered such a rude and unprofessional manager. They refused to give me any refund, but even worse, refused to apologize for the terrible condition of their premises that prevented us from getting any sleep. I would stay here if saving money is a priority, but I would not expect to get any rest.

Keep It Simple
This motel is just right for my needs. I don't require a fancy place for the majority of my time will be spent outside of the motel. The people were friendly which includes the gardener, room cleaner, and front desk receptionist. I use a manual wheelchair but because the room is small and I can stand I was able to get around. I'm assuming that they have an accessible room available but I think it was being used. What I didn't appreciate was that a number of non guest were taking up the parking places. There were signs of towing threats around but I feel they should have the number of the room on a specific parking space for guest. Otherwise, I would stay there again.
