Pros: It was bad.... Bugs everywhereCons: I didn't like rooms, smell bad in the room! Bugs on the floor!
Hookers at the hotel entrance looking for JohnsPros: It was a 15 min walk away from the mallCons: They seemed to have a shortage of towels. They never knew when the rooms were going to be cleaned. I waited for hours one day and they never came
Less than I expectedCons: Bathroom looked dirty, shower head leaked, no hair dryer in room, no shampoo, etc., sketchy area of town
Clean, fun and new looking! Pros: When looking for a cheap motel, I expected a ratty 1980's bed spread and carpet that required shoes 24/7. This place was clean, new and fresh. Perfect for our impromptu Austin adventure.
A dumpPros: I was out of there quick without getting killedCons: First room was full of smoke, requested a change to another one that had less smokey smell. Bathtub had pubic hair in it. Had to goto the store and get disinfectant. Called front desk and requested a partial refund.. Have not heard back. Price is high, go elsewhere and pay the extra $15 for cleanliness and less sketchy people hanging out in the parking lot.
No free wi-fiPros: Price was cheapest in town.Cons: The details on Kayak listed "Entertainment - Wi-Fi and satellite channels" but they charged $2.99 for Wi-Fi (it's the principle not the cost). Additionally even though I had the room furthest from the Freeway, the traffic noise was constant.
