There was no parking space at the room I was given so was parked in front of someone else's room. By parking at that room, the car was blocking the doorway of my room, which would happen if anyone was in that room at any time. Also, shower water pressure was very low and water not very hot

Basic motel, the room appeared clean. The bed was comfortable. Minimal amenities. This matched the price and met expectations.

Hello and Thank-You for your review. I am sorry you felt like you were put with the workers . The motel has been near booked out for the last 4 weeks .Availability of car out front rooms are first to sell . When you book via a outside booking source you get placed where the availability is ,the Hotel has no control on this unless you specifically bring it to attention which you didn't.. As we are not mind readers we did not know of your disatisfaction with your room placement or whom occupied the rooms either side of you were. One thing is to shop for lowest rate but upon getting one does it justify complaint?? I wish sometimes common sense could prevail and thank-you again for your comments.
