4/10 Fair

We stopped by this motel as a last-second decision, which resides in a quiet neighbourhood, has free, next-to-motel parking, and is a walkable distance to many shopping areas, restaurants, and the like. The hardwood floors in our room made for a better odor and cleaner look compared to carpeted floors in most hotels; however, we did notice strands of hair under the cot's bed sheets and on the unopened soap bars in the bathroom. Unfortunately, the motel does not offer free breakfast, in contrast to previous stays at other places. The Wi-Fi was very unreliable during our stay. A decent stay if you are simply looking for a place to sleep, but do not expect too much.

2/10 Poor

The refund policy was confusing, the floors were just caked in dirt, and the entire time we were there the place smelled rather humid. The bedsheets also were unwashed.

Simple and easy
Simple place to crash for a couple nights. No bells or whistles. Great Chinese and Mex food across the street. VFW post next door with cheap drinks and Karaoke if you're into that. Went to Laguna Seca for a few days and was 20 Min. up the road.

2/10 Poor

There was nothing to like about this property, it was disgusting, it looks like it has never been cleaned, the owner was extremely rude when we approached her to let her know that the bathroom had hair and was extremely dirty, she showed up to the room and was saying that we had no right to complain and she then proceeded to tell my wife to shut her mouth. I’ve never experienced a property as disgusting or a person as rude as she was. That place should be shut down.
