8/10 Very good

It’s a decent place for what you pay…. It’s near the 99 north or south…. Gym is close by and taco stands ….if anything the cable can be updated and a tv or two …. Overall it’s good I like that I can bring a dog along especially a pitbull… and I can park my car right near my window so that I can be very watchful of my property

I can appreciate this place because it’s one of the lesser costing motels around… you pay for what you get right?… I like how I can just park my car right in front of my door and I can hear and see my ride most places you can’t do that due to parking structure

4/10 Fair

The attended had the office locked during the time of check-in. He just asked for my driver's license and credit card. He then slipped me the key and agreement and had me sign. The room was horrible. The carpet was torn. The shower faucet came off, and you had to Waite around 5 minutes for the water to warm up. The towel rack was rusted, and the bed sheets were stained. Besides all this the window of the bathroom had steal meshing. I wouldn't have paid more than $20 to stay here.
