Convenient but noisy because of Highway 98. Front desk friendly but room dreadful. I am a non-smoker and was put in a smoking room (nothing else available) which smelled really bad. Carpet and bed cover had multiple, large stains. Wall socket covers missing and wiring exposed. Complimentary "hot" breakfast consisted of a toaster to heat up bagels. Not recommended.

We were late into town and kept to our budget - meaning we got a king-size bed in a smoking room. Since the room was covered in ashes, dirt and something I presumed to be bodily fluids; both my husband and I kept our long-sleeved/legged clothes on. Bed was comfortable. Hotel is near a government air base (large planes flying...

The only reason I stayed was because of how cheap it was... but it was the mist disgusting place we've ever stayed. There was a blood stain on the floor. The shower would not drain. The halls smelled of urine... On top of that, it was loud and we could not sleep through the night. The staff was courteous as...

Despite a very nice woman working the front desk, overall this place was very run down. We didn't feel very safe and we were concerned about our car and its contents. The rug in the room were stained, cigarette burns in the bedding and the bathroom was even worse. Needless to say, we skipped the free coffee in the morning.

The room was OK. It definitely has seen better days. The shower curtain was torn, the shower knob was dirty and missing the insert, and the shower head needed replacing. The bedding was ok. The lighting was awful. But for a one night stay for the price it was fine.

The room was adequate. You could tell they've done some restoration/upkeep on an older place. Happily, we didn't see the first bug either. The bathroom needed some work - see photos. Staff friendly and accomodating.

This place is without a one of the worst motels I've ever stayed in. The staff were very nice but the communication between them, terrible. I nearly ended up paying for 13 nights even when we canceled through hotels.com. I know most are going to read this and say as the motel staff said " Hotels.com doesn't offer returns,well this...

We are truly sorry for your loss. You made a reservation through hotels.com and your rate plan was a SAPR2 which means that through a 3rd party you made a reservation 14 days or more in advance which entitles you to get the best rates possible. With that being said, through this Hotels.com has a strict policy of non-cancelable, non-refundable...
