    It was okay.

    My stay was okay. You get what you pay for. The room is very outdated.

    Don't trust negative reviews

    We were reluctant due to negative reviews about noise and other things but we are so glad we stayed here! The room was huge with awesome shower pressure. A microwave and mini fridge came with our room. Staff was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend eating at Casa Sorento which is walking distamce. For the price you think it's a dive but it could charge double and still be worth it. The bed was comfortable, we didn't hear outside noise, the property is very well lit at night with tall palms to make the curb appeal inviting.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

    It did the job- a convienient location and easy check in. It's comfy, but not too clean. I used my own towels and blanket.

    Simple, Clean, Basic Motel

    It's a cheap basic motel. Clean.
