4/10 Fair

Not worth the money
Do not come here unless you are ok with a basic, no frills motel. The website shows cute revamped rooms and this is not accurate. For the nightly price you would expect a comfy bed and clean room. They gave about 25% effort into making this motel an upgrade. Do yourself a favor and go to a hotel, That way you can have a cozy bed, ice, room service and a clean room. You guys need to try harder, the shower nozzle was broken, the doors do not shut properly, we had a large cockroach in our room, the coffee maker half worked, the guest above us were so loud and you could hear every step they took!! We dealt with it but my gosh, with the $750 I spent for 2 nights I should have just rented an entire house!!
