Bad experience, I was bit by ticks in the room. Room is not clean. Poor customer service, bad attitude towards customer. When I complained during check out the owner told me nobody complained about the hotel, she probably never checked the reviews online.

Judging from the cheap price and the exterior, I wasn't expecting much, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! The pool was big, there were plenty of chairs, the rooms weren't fancy, but they were clean and had everything we needed (beds were actually comfortable!), there were plenty of stations on the T.V., it was quiet, the location...

My experience at the Desert Lodge was very good. Don't miss it as it is one among many on that street. Its, not a 5 star Hotel, so dont expect that. It is however a great value. Its an older building but very well kept and very clean. The room is a good size and well equipped with a fridge,...

Staying at this place is like sleeping on the streets of Calcutta. Filth, waste, and broken glass everywhere. Horrible smells. The owner says he has a jacuzzi. What he doesn't say is that it's empty, and brown. The towels that could double as sandpaper. I asked for another pillow. The owner told me no. Yes, he's the motel nazi "no...

Do not stay here. I found multiple bed bugs crawling on the bed in the middle of the night. After inspecting possible hiding places in the room, it was absolutely infested with bed bugs. Bed bugs will crawl into your luggage, so if you stay in a place as infested as this motel there is a high risk they will...

This is the place for you if you want a Hotel that has not invested a dime in many years, pool that is not usable, hot tub spa you would not let your dog swim in, maid service only when they can find one, worn carpet, friends can look through the door frame gaps, no food service etc.,etc.

This is one of the worst hotels I've stayed at in or outside of the United States. From the dirty rooms, the inadequate equipment, the shoddy bedding and the stench all have led me to forego ever going to this place in this life or the next one. If you have an enemy, buy them a room here. If you...
