Poor1.0 / 5
Disgraceful Behavior, and UNSAFE
There was domestic abuse occurring in the room next to us, which woke our children up and had them in tears, rocking themselves and unable to sleep or feel safe. The staff gave us stick answers about "if we didn't hear it ourselves" blah blah blah. I had to call the authorities and confront the couple myself to demand they ask to have their room changed. Worst experience at any hotel ever! The front desk was also scripted, rude and condescending when I deviated from his script and had the nerve to ask the location of my room before that information came in his routine. If you have a family...stay away from this hotel, because they will not help to protect you if there is violence in the property.

A great place to stay
A very nice room, Andrew at the desk was extremely friendly and professional. A couple of items tainted a perfect visit. The walls seem a little thin as we had to listen to a neighbor yelling at a woman til early morning and an air conditioner that made evil sounds at start up and was a bit loud. The bed was wonderful and except for the negatives that are isolated events, I would recommend this motel and will stay there again.

Good3.0 / 5
In town for a funeral. Good location for us.
The front desk people were great, very friendly. The maid service respected our "Do Not Disturb" sign for our three day stay. I liked that there was no early knock on the door. The AC worked great! I kept the room at 67 degrees. I really, really liked that the one window the room opened! The down side of the stay was the bed. My husband and I both ended up with sore hips from the uncomfortable bed. The pillows were good tho. Also, the bathroom was well stocked.
