The most disgusting place I have ever stayed !!! We booked this hotel very late and arrived just before midnight. We were too tired to drive any longer so had to find a place where to sleep. Huge mistake to stay overnight. Probably more safe to spend a night in the car than at this motel. Drunken people fighting downstairs,...

Slum! Horrible place! We checked in to friendly faces, entered the room to a stench of feces, cigarettes and mould. Cigarette burns on the bed, holes in the walls, window would not close. Definite health and safety risk, the place should be knocked down!

I'm not leaving this review to vent or bellyache...this is truly to help others...PLEASE DON'T STAY HERE! I’m here to tell you this is the worst motel experience of my life. I’ve traveled quite a bit in the past (driven through 46 states) and have stayed in many different places, but this takes the cake for being the worst. I...

Have you ever wondered what a motel put-together with items from Craigslist's free section would be like? Well, that's exactly what this motel looks like. The furniture is dirty and walls are smeared with questionable substances. I'm not picky and have stayed at many places, but this is by far the dirtiest and worst place I have ever seen. Please...

I can't describe how awful this place is- I am half tempted to sleep in my car because all the surrounding hotels are fully booked. This place is filthy dirty- questionable people- NO air conditioner- And a bar down the street that is still blasting music at 12:30 am. Owners barely speak English..... Hotter then he'll in this room and...

We were looking for an economical place to stay. We have spent $60 per night at other places and got a so-so accomodation. You don't expect much for that price, but this place was the pits. I would never recommend it. It was small, had bad furniture, dirty carpet, the furnace didn't work, the TV had no remote, there was...

First room we checked in had no soap and dirty towels on the floor. Filthy heating vents. Rooms are tiny and cramped. When we complained it wasn't cleaned and they moved us, the second room had holes above the heater, a broken drawer, electrical outlets with wires hanging out and duct tape on the doorknob. Really? Bikes line the outside...

It certainly is economical. Perhaps the savings comes from not providing the little things. There is no closet, nor is there anywhere to hang anything, no rod, no hooks, not even a chair for the kneehole desk on which to drape a shirt (and I do not count door knobs as a legitimate alternative). There was no light or lamp...

This place is soooo noisy!!! All kinds of shady characters playing loud music, hanging around the parking lot with whom the manager was very friendly with. Once we got in our room, we got to hear all the construction going on, AT 7:00 pm. We came to rest. Then at 2:00 am we heard all kinds of noise coming from...
