It exceeded my expectations for the price. It's definitely one star but has a reasonably good feel. I would stay here again.
Some things in the rooms have been upgraded since the hotels inception...others have not. As is typical for the star level. I doubt anyone is impressed by the carpet. The mattress was reasonable. I wish there was a microwave!
dirty, poorly maintained, not the howard johnsons's of my generation. never again
very convenient for our purposes
114 tub drained poorly
I liked the fact that it had basic facilities like shower cap. Decent breakfast.
They had a old TV, the sink was rusted almost and was looking dirty. They did not even have water. Had to end up buying a bottle of water from them.
room was dirty not vacuumed no toilet paper no towels Sink was plugged housekeeper came in with a knife to fix sink Brought us wet towels No remote for TV Nail polish on furniture Breakfast room was dirty Lobby furniture is stainedbedding was wet
Nothing really dirty
They gave me two towels.You got use to the mildew smell.You got almost half of the listed cable channels
I climbed Mt Rainier/booked a room because I had 24 hrs to burn and to get cleaned up. Called ahead to see if they had a functioning hot tub but they failed to tell me they close it at 9:15pm ( my check in time)and opens At noon (there check out time)
Location and the front desk. Staff very friendly.
Old rooms, anf furnishings out dated. Poor breakfast
There's nothing I can say this hotel is good.
They charged us as doubles price as I actually had to pay. The manager's attitude was so bad. They did not change our room's amenities. It was the worst hotel I've ever stayed.
Selection of tv channels poor. No Fox News or ESPN.
The location wasn't bad, close to our destination.
The overall smell of the room when you opened the door for the first time. The A/C unit leaked so the floor was wet and that is where most of the smell came from I would guess. They tried to mask the smell and that was total overkill too.
Room was not having microwave
Overall cleanliness, price, customer service
Poor wifi connection and ice maker (only one) broken on one day
3 pm check in. Room had not been cleaned and had to wait until 4:15 pm. We had a smoking room but were provided no ash trays even though we requested them. We had a local wedding to attend but we were late because of check in time. Under staffed?
The room was spacious and clean, and the coffee was good.
The outside is a bit dirty. Need to steam clean the sidewalks, and as typical with a one star hotel you will have the shady characters roaming around but they kept to themselves.
Manager was rude felt like she was coming on to me not professional, room was dirty, shower had holes in walls
Exterior of hotel was so dirty and unkept.disgusting laundry area with strewn empty detergent bottles all over.Bags of trash all over parking area.Disgustingly dirty the ice cubes dispenser.Peeling paintNot worthy to bear the Ho,Jo brandExpens
The room wasn't ready on time and I was waiting for an hour for my room and still wasn't ready, so I have to take a different room. They don't clean the rooms everyday and they don't have everything. I have to call and asked to bring in the room.
Was given a smoking room when I wanted/booked Nonsmoking room. My socks got black just walking carpet. Horrid smoking smell which agitated my Asthma. No empty rooms for miles due to the PGA Golfing tournament in Tacoma over 1 hour away...NASTY!!!
The location of the motel
Bad service and how dirty the floors wereWe found bugs crawling on the wallsand when room services came in they would ask us to their part of taking out dirty towels and trash.
Free breakfast. Friendly staff. Close to freeway and near my destination.
Only 22 channels worked and most were sports and Disney-family related. Would have liked PBS, animal planet, local ABC, NBC, and CBS. It needs some paint and perhaps carpets cleaned or replaced. I felt they were trying very hard, though.
It was nice
I guess for a one star hotel it is what it is. I stayed mainly for location and price. Just needed one night before moving to my new home. I do not recommend this place at all. Tweekers and rodents.
The staff was friendly and helpful.
Advertised it has a pool; found it to be 'seasonal'. Advertised it had a fitness room; three out of three pieces of equipment broken/inoperable. No free weights or weight machines. The sauna was scary; would be afraid to sit on a surface in that room.
the room smelled surprisingly clean upon entering. it was clean and comfortable.
the television was old and clunky, didnt have an hdmi plug in. internet cut out every 5 minutes and needed to be reconnected.
the tv stations are ok and the lay out of room.
In the 5 times I've been there,the pool is never open.
I stay here all the time. This was my worst experience. My first room had a leaking toilet. The thing was on sideways and was not sealed. As a result, every flush would flood the bathroom with toilet water. They made me change rooms. Downhill from there.
Leaking toilet. Bad manners. Unclean second room.
The staff is very helpful, the room was clean though small, but I only wanted a place to sleep anyway.
The bed cover was pilly.
This place is falling apart. The bed was broken and the TV barely had reception. When we arrived back there after dinner, we were greeted by 6 police cars in the parking lot, the ending of a freeway chase. This property is very old I will never stay here.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
Large rat ran by my door heading for the pool.
The staff was courteous and friendly..
A rat ran past my door..
Taking a bath but I had to rig my own drain stopper
No coffee maker in my room although in the non-smoking rooms each had a coffee maker and they also had microwaves in the non-smoking rooms but not in my room which was a smoking room
Too many flies in the hotel. Needs better pest control. Also TV did not work. Did not use WiFi this time. Stayed before WiFi suckered.
Staff ok but not very friendly.Walk right pass without a hello or goodday.Clerks ok.
every time I stay here the pool is closed
It smelled clean, looked decent. Air worked
Volume limit on TV is difficult to hear when using ac. Pool was closed for maintenance. Front desk guy was on the rude side after my key didn't work.
It was okay good for the price, but the sheets were dirty. Luckily I brought my own bedding otherwise it would have been a nightmare
The breakfast was good. They offered a variety: muffins, bagels, toast, fruit, juice, cereal, and waffles. They served from 630-930 each day. Additionally, staff was friendly.
There were 2 non working outlets in the room and the sink faucet was broken slightly which made it difficult to operate. Additionally, the area where the hotel is located is a little on the creepy side. Our first night there police told us to be careful
Noisy, layout.....rooms at the back of one section, had to park out front and walk back.
It was a place to sleep.
Pool was nasty.Burns in the carpet.not enough towels for 2 people.No bags in the trash cans.smelled bad.No cable for t.v.
