    I was here 2 weeks ago for a place to stay after my long flight from California. I only picked this place 'cause of the great deal I got from hotwire.com . I only booked for 3 days and I couldn't stay for the remaining 2 and here are my reasons why.

    1. When I came into my room it literally smelled like cigarettes. I didn't let it bother me 'cause I was way too tired to give a fuck. I just needed a bed to sleep in.
    2. There were pretty shady people around. Like you'd get some ghetto crew just wandering around the complex and it leaves you wondering what these guys intent are.
    3. When I woke up from my first night, I found 2 cockroaches-one on my bed and one on the sink. At that point I was thinking about complaining and demand a new room.
    4. As I was taking a shower, the drain got clogged up I started seeing black "ash" come up. Now at that point, it was the last straw.

    I wanted to refund my remaining nights and they did. I just had to go through the long process in calling hotwire how horrible the room was. They were nice enough to offer me a new room, but the damage was already done.

    The internet was very slow. They claim to have high speed interent but I could barely stream a video without it stopping to load every 10 seconds. There wasnt very much water coming out of the shower head. I asked the front desk lady a question and she had a very rude tone with me. Overall everyone in the front desk didnt seem happy to be there. Right in the hotel there is a place where every Friday and Saturday they have parties and the music can be heard everywhere. The air conditioner/heater was very loud when turned on. The TV only has like 20 channels. There were some very sketchy people walking around. There were some guys who stayed by my room that were fixing something for the hotel and at like 5 in the morning they would stand by my window and wake us up with their loud chatter.

    Thanks for the early check in, HOJO. But can you do something about the misaligned door jam? (See my photo). Also, who was mysteriously knocking on my door at 9 pm? Was it the same person who called my room 30 seconds later? If you stay here, come armed.

    I have stayed here for the past 3 weekends now. I have had 4 rooms because I made the mistake of asking for a smoking room he first night, being a smoker I couldn't even stay in the first room as the smell was so over bearing.  I asked to be moved and they obliged.

    The second room was ok, it was on the first floor and it seems that the first floor rooms are not as nice as the second floor' however it was clean and to me that's the most important part.

    The third room and tonight's rooms were both on the second floor and again are great, nice and clean. The beds are ok, I like the way they make them with the little pillows but I still bring my own pillow and quilt.  Not sure that ill ever trust a hotels bedding no matter how many stars they have.

    The staff appear to be the owners and are pretty polite, they are cleaning the grounds up.  Ive seen them painting the curbs, sidewalks, even the speed bumps lol.  Ive seen an improvement over the past month.  Its not perfect but its clear they are trying.

    My only real complaint would be the clientele, most are a little shady to say the least. I always carry a firearm so it really doesn't bother me: however if I were a single woman I would think twice.  I have had the pleasant experience of walking up on a guest smoking a blunt on the stairway a few times, lol.   I don't care but he could have hid it a little better.

    All in all Ive had a good stay, I have one more weekend where ill need a room and I believe ill be staying here.

    The bedroom was pretty clean but the bathtub was not. Overall sketchy vibe here. Breakfast was decent. Classic motel. Would stay here again on the road if the bathroom was clean.

    So the room I must say is pretty clean
    The beds are super comfy and well maintained
    The bathroom is very clean

    Bad part is the area is very scketchy
    There's a lot  of pretty bad looking people around here
    Just now we had cops banging on a door 3 doors down from us
    And they arrested a couple for drugs
    I have pictures to prove !
    Oh and they have really slow internet and a old box tv

    But like I said the room is clean and comfortable
    So I think it's worth the money just lock you door good :)
