RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! Absolutely disgusting. Bugs, big gross scary stains on the mattress, pillows, carpet disgusting. We walked in the room and walked right back out and said we can't stay here. THYE DONT OFFER REFUNDS. I paid $150 just to look at the place and run for my life.

This was by far the most terrible accommodation experience we've had in North America. The reason we chose this place was because it was CLOSE TO THE AIRPORT and we were only spending a few hours in the place. We booked through booking.com and got the cheapest room at a total of $101. I was sure that CONS: -The room...

Did not expect much after reading all the reviews that were posted. Was a very basic motel which looks very run down and eerie from outside. However the room was spacious and well maintained and had free parking. No breakfast provided, but we had a microwave and refrigerator in the room.
