Negative Reviews


Lack of an Elevator Is Annoying

If you have difficulty climbing stairs, just keep in mind that this motel has no elevator service. Another solution could be to ask for a room on the lower floor according to guests.


Cleaning Is an Issue

Several guests remarked that the hotel housekeeping needs quite a bit of improvement. They cite issues such as rooms that smelled like smoke, towels and sheets that aren't entirely clean, dirty tubs and dingy carpets. For many guests, the cleaning staff really needs to improve their work ethic.


Rundown and Overpriced

According to a number of travelers this hotel really needs a renovation in the worst way. Not only is the decor dated and the rooms overrun with odors, functionality with some of the amenities are also a problem. Plus, others commented that for what they spent, they felt they were shortchanged and expected much nicer accommodations than what they received.
