4/10 Fair

Everything, from the tv remote to the card to get to the laundry required a cash deposit The suites are for extended stay, NOT the rooms. The rooms are tile 400sq ft rooms with no fridge, no microwave, and no where to put much luggage. This is the first hotel Ive ever been to without even a fridge. I had to get an air purifier to get the smoke and such ouy of the air in a nonsmoking room. The shower/bathtub is in the bedroom in the far wall and completely separate from the bathroom. I had to wipe the floor down with a wet towel to get the grime off the floor. The night shift people are friendly enough but the day shifters are short, rude, and indifferent. They're obsessed with doing housekeeping daily and won't let you go more than a few days without it like theyll be punished if they don't. The rooms are predominately for by the hour or night. If it weren't for the location in comparison to my work assignment and paying on my own I'd have gone elsewhere.

2/10 Poor

VERY MISLEADING, i BOOKED A ROOM JUST FOR THE SPA TUB, ALLI GOT WAS A REGURAL TUB. Not to mention the rooms are NOT sound proof, All I heard at night was people talking in the hall, and doors slamming. The bar well buy a bottle and take it to your room!
The tub
Hair I found in the room
Looks like blood on the wall

6/10 Good

The Swan Motel in Linden
The stay was good the Swan Motel it was a low end no frills room- The comforter had cigarette burns in it even though my room was a non-smoking room. Also the Swan Motel has short stays for people who want to stay 4 hours- so the traffic on the Swan Motel’s property was high & busy- The comfort of the room was ok, on a scale of 1 to 10 it was a 4 for me and I will not be staying there again - But to the Swan Motel’s credit if you want a clean no-frills room then it is a good place to stay-

Misleading pictures. I choose this motel based on the picture of the tub. It had no jets in it. The staff was very rude. Never again

Swan Motel
The gentleman at the front desk was lovely, beds were comfortable and the location was ideal for my purposes. The property is old and a bit run down. The floors were clean but the register in the bathroom had a layer of greasy grime and there were ants around the tub. The bedding and towels were clean but had holes and some staining.
