By far, this is the worst motel/hotel I have experienced. Paper thin doors, sagging mattresses with plastic covers, lizards in room, unsecured open exterior doors. We checked out early and were told by clerks that not only can they not give us a refund for the days we paid cash for in advance, they couldn't give a receipt showing we...

The service was great but the hotel wasn't. First the door won't open, then the room was hot even though the a/c was on the whole night. There is no hot water, ice and the back stairs is almost collapsing. The tv is the old version (before plasma) 23” . The cable was basic. The pool water was cloudy. Nothing...

This hotel looks like a gas station. We had to fight for towels. The bed sheets were not that clean, the washers were out of order. The kids enjoyed the pool witch could have been cleaner. Some of the staff members were excellent with us.

Decent hotel if you need just basic accommodation. Very good service, nice and friendly staff. Adequate pool, could be cleaner. Bathroom, shower, fridge in room. Ask for a room with a window. Eat breakfast at the bakery right across the highway.

Nice rooms, clean towels everyday, pool need a little more cleaning. but I think hotel is a little overpriced, paid 90 night for 2 adults 2 children. Restaurant...

The staff at this hotel was very nice and extremely helpful. It is definitely no-frills. When we stayed there, they had a wedding party in their function room which was pretty loud, but I'm sure they don't always have that. If you stay at this hotel, make absolutely sure you do not get an interior room. They gave us one...
