Pool was not open workout room was not open bar was not open I was put in the wrong room the Maid packed up my clothes stuffed in my suit case

Beds we comfortable. Not too hard. Nice bathroom. Friendly staff.

The rooms for a very clean and they had a real comfortable bed. There was coffee in the rooms but they had free coffee downstairs which was a lot better they had a continental breakfast downstairs for $6. The staff was really nice and helpful and they practice social distancing. There was free parking and we could park just right outside one of the doors and go right into the elevator and upstairs to our room. All in all it was a real nice stay and we would recommend it to anyone and we will stay there again.

It was convenient and clean. Perfect for what I was looking for

I liked the people but the beds are old and lumpy. I changed rooms after the 2nd night due to bad beds. Spend some money and get new ones. The breakfast was just cold cereal and juices. I did not feel it was worth 6 dollars. Other than that it was ok.

Very worn down. No ac in hotel room. Keys kept deprogramming from my mobile phone being close to them. Tub drain had a massive hair clog that I had to clear to get it to drain. Breakfast was a step below continental, and awful. The only redeeming qualities were the staff that worked here. They were so great.

Everyone from the front desk to the maids were very friendly & helpful. Amenities were the best they could be under the current conditions. The only ice machine on my floor did not work for the last 2 days that I was there even after bringing it to the attention of maintenance. The room next to mine had the same dirt on the carpet outside the door on Friday morning that was there on Thursday. However, over-all I will deffinately use this motel next time I'm in town.

Overall a bit disappointing, but not surprising given the other reviews. The property seems old and dingy. The air conditioner in our room was super loud so we had to turn it off and sleep with the door open. One of the lights in the room was broken too. Beds were so so. Staff was very friendly and nice.

great location and value, 27 seven more characters until it lets me out
