We booked for proximity to the stadium. That was good - everything else is not that great. Old and tired, bed sagged and not sure if the carpet was stained or dirty.

Cigarette butt on floor in bathroom when it’s a no smoking room. Cigarette ash on the carpet. Sheets had stains on them. Spa bath wasn’t cleaned it had hair in it and a ring around the it where it just hadn’t been cleaned. Was so disappointed.

In a great central location, the property is clean. It is an older motel and not at all soundproof! The staff were friendly and helpful.
