"Worst hotel to stay."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
One word: dirty rooms and and whole motel. My daughter got sick after staying here. Smell is so bad that I felt suffocated all night. If I am allowed to give 0 star would give 0 stat rating.

"Excellent value/Everything you need"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
For the low price, get two double beds, great shower, huge jacuzzi tub in 1/3 of the room, TV, free Wifi, plenty of heat and hot water. My reservation had requested a microwave and fridge which weren't available at check-in. Front desk staff were extremely helpful in locating them and they were brought to my room within three minutes.
