    Very expensive for a very old worn out motel

    The property is old and it smells. The office is musty and feels humid. The room had an obnoxiously overpowering perfume smell. I discovered this came from the Starbucks cup (seriously, this is the vessel they chose) filled with room deodorizer powder in the closet. The bathroom was redone, however the shelf in the shower is not flat. I'm assuming this was done to avoid water pooling on it and making it easier to clean; however, it also results in making the shelf unusable as anything that is placed on it simply slides off. The water took 11 minutes to heat up in the shower. This is a ridiculous amount of wasted water. The bed was old and sagged noticeably in the middle. I hope I can afford to stay somewhere else in the future.

    Memta, the front desk manager, was waiting our late arrival. Beds were very comfortable and the rooms very clean. Best shower I have had in a long time. There were free snacks in the room which was really nice. I know this hotel has gotten 2 stars on Booked.net, but on the contrary, I found Inn at Palo Alto to be a fine place to stay.

    The carpet was dark, but clean nevertheless.

    Good

    1. Modern, well-supplied bathroom 2. Good, well-supplied coffee/food station.

    1. Had difficulty communicating with desk clerk, who was unfriendly, negative, and uncooperative. 2. Bathroom drain didn't work, and there was no obvious way to fix it. Had to report it to front desk. 3. Room lamp switches were very difficult to operate and should be repaired or lamps should be replaced.

    Superb

    Good location, clean and very nice motel

    Staff is too noisy. They start work around 8-9 and walk back and forward behind your door and speak so loud

    Fabulous

    The room was nice. The facility was old but that allowed a lower price than the surrounding hotels.

    No pool, jacuzzi, or morning breakfast. There were coffee and snacks in the room

    When the booking was made, there was a mention in their add of a free breakfast. Their free breakfast was a joke. It was to prepackaged roles in your room, a copy pot with coffee, and some cereal bars. This is not my idea of breakfast nor is it when I used to when I travel. The air-conditioning unit did not cool the roof down at all and in fact it froze over and literally quit working. When it defrosted it leaked water all over the floor. All in all, I was very disappointed with facility would not stay there again what I recommend it

    Good

    * Clean , comfortable bed, * WI- FI * Location

    * When first entered in the room , smelled like cleaning supplies...later when got used to that air , it was ok. * They advertise , that they serve breakfast every day , but in reality it is a coffee maker in room, with coffee and Lipton tee packs + granola bar + plus a prepacked Svenhard's pastry that can stay "fresh "prob month ... * Rooms feel old and outdated
