Won't be back. But it could have been worse. Maybe
Beds were ROCK HARD. There was only on sheet and no comforter or blanket. The road was noisy. They staff were super weird. Hair in our coffee maker and shower. Rooms looked very updated but I think they have wood looking floors so it doesn't show the dirt.

good one night stay
the check in was a little wait. the clerk is old fashion. the room was clean & neat. had lots of hot water. the noise later in the night got loud with people's conversation. the motel is off the main street so i got traffic noise as well. this spot was good for great dinner down the way.

very misleading, be aware
I had been removed from a room and my dog, so they could clean room. strangest thing I have ever experienced. also. it's a single person that owns this property. no 800 number for complaints. and no speaking English. they r from India. can't relate to customers. but understands curse words. I cried, my little westie 18lbs was nervous wreck sitting outside. so had to call my husband at work. and he called even has no 800 number. representative tried from, and it's just front # nobody answers. then he forgot to give me my i.d. I had to go back to front desk, and say, what did u do with my i.d.? right after, moving me into another room, and lied right to us. we asked ,why did I have to move. he said, u want that room back?I said no! he watched me struggle,with my things and my dog. very rough day. 2 days, to be exact. should delete from their website. they r what we call a shady business. I hope a person never experiences this.

Clean and convenient.
The hotel was very clean particularly the flooring which was all synthetic hardwood and was nice not to have to worry about unclean carpeting. Everything inthe rooms was updated and comfortable. Easy parking off the street. Rooms close to Lakewood blvd. get some noisy traffic as it is a very busy street. Checking in, It was very difficult to hear the attendant behind the security glass, since there was no opening or perforation for communication. Overall, a very convenient place to stay close to family, so we will definitely be staying here again.
