Very Nice Stay

Pros: Size of room and cleanliness
Cons: The hotel did NOT have an elevator
Location: Hotel is well situated.
Staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. However, there is no elevator. Anyone staying on the 2nd floor has to carry bags up the stairs (only bad point about this hotel).

Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you found our staff to be friendly and our rooms to be clean. While we do not currently have an elevator at our property, our staff is more than happy to assist guests with any luggage needing to be carried upstairs. I hope you choose to stay with us again!

skid row

Pros: the desk personnel
Cons: see above--needs updating, dramatic updating. maybe tear down and start over
Location: convenient to interstate--but watch out for traffic if you're from the country
Very pleasant staff. However....old, very old motel without much upkeep, dark, lengthy hallways, smaller than usual room, teeny tiny bathroom. AC sounded like express subway train.

Pleasantly Surprised

Pros: Friendly staff, cleanliness, proximity to many restaurants, quiet location.
Cons: A TV program schedule would be nice.
Location: Located in a busy area with plenty of shopping and good restaurants.
I was promptly waited on and the clerk put WiFi on my tablet as I'm functionality illiterate when it comes to electronics. My room was cool and very adequate for my needs. All linens were provided and clean (as they should have been). The hotel was in a quiet location with plenty of parking close to the lobby (important to me because of a physical disability). I called the desk for assistance with the TV and a clerk came to my room a few minutes later to assist me. The breakfast was well stocked and had a good variety of foods and beverages. All in all, my experience there was very pleasant and I don't hesitate yo patronize them again.

Clean moderately priced hotel.

Pros: It was close to where I was going and was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nice, and the staff was lovely.
Cons: The bathroom looked very clean but had a slight odor.
Location: I was there to visit family and so did no sightseeing. The expressway was very closet, and there were a number of large shopping centers in the area.
The room was clean and O.K. Breakfast was included and very nice. The staff was friendly and very helpful.

Good accommodations for the price.

Pros: Location, laundry facilities, free Wi-Fi.
Cons: Pillows could be bigger and more comfortable.
Location: Though this is not right on Route 1, there were plenty of shopping, entertainment and eating venues nearby.
Good accommodations for the price. Laundry facilities being available was a plus. Breakfast could have used a few more gluten free options, but all in all not a bad place to stay. Enjoyed the location - away from Route 1 but has shopping and eating venues located very close.
