8/10 Very good

Clean, quiet, and affordable
Clean and quiet for a great price! Perfect family room with two bedrooms. Great restaurant next door . Perfect for the price. Felt safe despite the liquor store next door and the very quiet homeless guy out back. Clean where it counted (but a bit dusty.) I would recommend it and would have no problem staying again .

4/10 Fair

I wouldn't stay again
Check in was ok- and then they assigned a room at the hotel next door Motel Tropicana. The room was so small you could barely move around in it-especially the bathroom.There is a homeless camp behind the hotel. Patch up work on the ceiling and wall . The grounding post still in the plug in.The microwave glass front was broken. A very unpleasant stay.

It was clean and bed was comfortable. Extra pillows are in cabinet. Extra blanket on shelf. Door did stick but not terrible. Faucet was loose but not a big deal. The person at front desk was very nice. Would stay again. Panda Express and Wingstop right across street.

Hard Workers
We stayed at this hotel this past weekend and checked in pretty late around 11 but the staff were very kind. After we were in the hotel we noticed that there was an issue with the toilet, we immediately notified the front desk and the staff was quick to fix and accommodate us. Some of the hardest working people I’ve seen working in a hotel. Would recommend.

6/10 Good

Not worth it
Neighborhood is shady, the buildings are old and falling apart. It felt like I was walking into an apartment complex. The window panes in the room were broken. There was mold on the bathroom walls and tub. The bed sheets were old and had black/brown stains on them. I will say that the room looked and smelled clean.
