We booked this motel after a 15 hour drive. What a joke! The room we got first stunk of cigarettes and I asked for a non-smoking room. The staff told me that the one side is smoking and our side was non-smoking...and they are all...More

This hotel is the illegitimate child of a prison cell and a bus station bathroom after they spent a filthy-dirty weekend together locked in a janitor's closet a long long time ago. The non-smoking room we requested reeked of smoke and was liberally adorned with...More

This is a 40 dollar hotel room at best. It looks like the building and its amenities haven’t been updated in about the last 25 years. The carpeting was fraying away from every wall, the bathroom was gross and complete with dead bugs, the sheets...More

This is in a good location for the airport and is easy to get too. Plenty of parking. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The room however was in a sorry state of repair. The door to the room didn't quite fit, I doubt...More

There parking lot should say a lot about the rest of a customers stay. Its night and day from 2 years ago when I stayed there. Garbage open fencing a park bench that's on its last leg. They even said that bed bugs is and has been a problem . Rooms on back side must be the worse and the entry door has clearance for any creepy crawly to get in. Walls with stains hairvon sheets fingernail clippings and food crumbs all over the room (240) Then of course the bed bugs. I requested another room and I requested a handicapped room right next to the office. Flat screen really clean but a strong smell that stayed with me when I left the next day. Now I have a headache from it. Got there at noon on a Thursday just to eat and sleep and didn't sleep until 2 am because of noise and tweekers. Plus a motorcycle keeled visiting the office and revving his engine before and after he left about 3 times. Finally feel asleep and in a sound sleep when I heard a woman arguing outside when investigating she was in the parking lot yelling at herself. 630 am woke up again by same woman I thought I was in a nightmare. I only wanted sleep . Please don't stay here its not worth staying even for free. Hopefully management will read this and contact me 515-305-4911 I would love to share my experience. Moving forward I will say that the service personnel were friendly and apologetic to my situation so they must be use to working and watching this at one time great place to visit turn into ****
