The clerk at the hotel and the gas station across the street hiding behind 2 inch thick glass, was a giveaway. The cops surrounded our car and figured we were either there for a hooker or some drugs. Once they realized we were just there by mistake, they told us we would be fools to spend the night. The area...

Went to Georgia to visit a friend, another friend booked the rooms without checking it out thoroughly. Needless to say the place is a good place to score drugs and get robbed. If the smelly rooms don't make you want to run, the 2 inch thick plexiglass cage surrounding the front desk should tell you all you need to know!...

Got caught in a big storm and decided to rest for a few hours. Not wanting to plunk down $100 for a few hours I checked the rate here. Was reasonable so I stayed. Ended up falling asleep and leaving the next morning. The rooms weren't great, but not awful. Didn't see any of the shady characters that the other...

The owner seemed very nice and friendly until we had paid for the room and saw that it was not fit to stay in. The sheets on the beds and the bathroom was very dirty so I called down stairs and told the guy that the sheets needs to be changed and he said no you bring the sheets off...

. . .and I've stayed at some doozies. I had to ask for another room because someone had put chewing gum in the door so it wouldn't lock. The place is crawling with prostitutes on the weekend. It's clean, enough, I guess, but the whole building is dingy and obviously a den of ill repute. I wouldn't have stayed at...

I wish I had read the reviews before I booked this, I was tired and it was dark, I pulled off the highway and saw lots of strung out looking people on the sides of the Glenwood Road. When I arrived at the motel, I asked the manager if I could change to a different Motel 8 and he smiled...
