8/10 Very good

The place itself was decent, the area that we were in was kinda sketchy and was not ideal to stay in.

4/10 Fair

Good standard, bad area!
I would say that the motel has gone through a recent refurbishment and it’s been done well to a good standard. My only critique of the rooms is that the bed frame was steel and noisy, and there was no tea/coffee making facilities. Regarding the motel and area… the room above me was clearly being used by a prostitute… comings and goings all night and lots of ‘noise’. It didn’t feel safe to walk around the area either.

2/10 Poor

AVOID AT ALL COSTS! This place was awful. My non smoking room reeked of cigarettes, bugs in the bathroom, and terribly unsafe area. We checked out twenty minutes after arriving because of how bad it was. We were later told it’s basically a CRACK HOUSE! Stay away!

6/10 Good

You Get What You Paid For
The room wasn't too bad! The bedding was a bit uncomfortable and there was a gap between the floor and the front door so it was easy for bugs to get in. But the free on-site parking was a huge plus for us as we were road-tripping. The staff was very kind and friendly! At night you can hear absolutely everyone - lots of yelling in the surrounding rooms and a very busy street.
