Handy location and friendly staff

Most guests liked this motel's roadside location just off highway I-35. It was particularly convenient for motorists as it was close to gas stations, convenience stores and popular eateries. Reviewers were also largely upbeat about the customer service, often calling staff pleasant and helpful. Most visitors said check-in was swift but a few encountered frustrating mix-ups over reservations.

Fair value for money

Those looking for basic accommodation that was affordable were often pleased with this motel. Many reviewers concluded it offered fair value for money as the rooms were of a decent quality and fairly spacious for the price they paid. Guests also appreciated perks like the pet-friendly policy, free parking and free morning coffee.

Praise for housekeeping

Although critics sometimes said the motel looked unappealing from the outside, many were often pleasantly surprised once they went inside. Reviewers often said the rooms were more than adequately clean for a short stay.

Negative Reviews

Older rooms attracted negative opinions

Some of the older rooms at this property attracted criticism from reviewers who claimed there were aging carpets, tired-looking furniture, aging mattresses, old televisions, worn linens and outdated bathrooms. However, the most-recently refurbished rooms attracted more positive opinions as they had more modern facilities and fresh decor.

Minor cleanliness grumbles

A few critics were sometimes disappointed when they discovered that trash left by previous occupants wasn't cleared away. It was also occasionally claimed that pest prevention measures were ineffective at times.

Nuisance smells and noises

Some light sleepers said certain rooms were exposed to traffic noise from the freeway; others said they found noise from neighboring rooms and corridors annoying. Another nuisance some guests faced was a lingering tobacco smell in some of the non-smoking rooms.
