Oh man. This place. Where do I start. I'm giving it one star because honestly it was a disgusting place and I'm amazed we didn't get murdered during the night. But it was also incredibly entertaining. Most of our stay here was finding more and more things that made this place just insane. We arrived an hour and a half before check in and the guy said we couldn't check in early. Fine. But when we got back later the guy was asleep in his chair and no one else was in sight. Clearly nothing had been done in that time so it made no sense that we couldn't check in early. But whatever. The location is very close to the falls so it wasnt hard to occupy ourselves for a couple of hours. When we did finally check in, we got to our room and noticed that the door was actually open. Like not just unlocked. Open. Later we realized that ALL of the unoccupied room doors were just open. So that was weird. But then we realized that even if they weren't open, we could have just slid the window open that is right beside the door with no screen, reached in and opened the door that way too. So we felt very vulnerable in that room. We were sure not to leave any valuables in the room when we went out. So we got into our room and noticed many nasty though entertaining things. Firstly, there were very clear razor marks on the table and night side table. Very clearly from someone cutting cocaine. There was some probably bodily fluid mixed with what looked like cocaine just spread across the window. The beds looked like the covers had just been pulled up. Probably not changed. The blankets had holes in them. The towels looked like they had been folded by a toddler. I found a shard of glass on the bathroom counter and there is an ironing board cupboard and the ironing board was broken in half, had a penis drawn on it and it said f*ck Jimmy buffet (super random). They only gave us one roll of toilet paper for 4 people. But hey! The other rooms were just left open so when we needed more we just went and took it from another room. We also took extra pillows from the other room because why not? They left them open. It was also very convenient when after we checked out, I remembered I left something in the room. But we had closed and locked the door and already handed in the key. But its okay because I just opened the door again through the window and got my stuff back without having to talk to the weirdos that run the place. If this place was actually kept up and cared about, it could be amazing. The price was cheap and the location good. And that's clearly why anyone stays here. But beyond that it is a disgusting cesspool and I'm surprised we didnt leave with diseases just from touching things there. I definitely would not recommend this place. Stay far away! Honestly felt like I was in Bates Motel and I was going to be axe murdered. Just a bad vibe all around. Oh right! Also the fire detector was out of the ceiling and the batteries removed and there was no fire extinguisher in sight. So many violations. I'm pretty sure I could go on. But that's all I remember right now.

The location is the only plus for this motel! The reception area was dirty, with unswept carpet, open trash cans on the way to the rooms, cigarette butts everywhere outside. My room had a funny smell (? a bit like a urinal), uncleaned fridges, exposed electrical wiring with tape on it, hairs in the bath, torn curtains, & the dirty carpet... - I could go on! I am used to staying in cheap accommodation, but this was not cheap. I didn't move, but I was glad to leave with no itchy bites.....oh & the wifi was almost impossible, as was the TV reception!

The only thing this place had going for it was the location. The room smelled horribly musty and the red rug was black with stains for starters. The tub looked like there was blood in it or it could have been a stain. I was too afraid to tell for sure. The dresser drawers had hair from various people in it so obviously not cleaned on a regular basis. If the room was ever cleaned, they never moved the chairs around to vacuum because there were crumbs and cobwebs and a random feather. The sheets were stained and smelled like they hadn’t been changed. There was no toilet paper holder and the mini refrigerator had something spilled in it. I had laid my dog’s bed on the ground because I didn’t want him laying on the ground for fear of what he might get infested with. After 10 minutes we realized there was no way we could stay there. We did get refunded and quickly got out of there. We threw away the dog bed to be safe.

Booked 1 night for the July 4th fireworks. The room was disgusting. Broken furniture, no towel racks, bathroom cups, or trash can. Stained carpet and torn drapes. Cable tv advertised, but not available. Ten minutes after arriving, I went to the office to request another room, but the manager said that they were full, and immediately offered a refund instead. He indicated that they were renovating, but that was never communicated to us by the property or the booking site. Maintenance had to come and replace our tv because it was actually sideways in the entertainment center, and we were worried that it might fall. After he finished, the manager came to our room and kicked us out for complaining. While refunding our money, he told us that we were LUCKY that we weren't charged the full price because he could rent that room for 200.00!The positives were that the a/c in the room was good, and that the pool was refreshing. STAY AWAY!
