First said there had no reservations for us. Walked into room and the musty smell was horrible. Looked at beds they had hair all over them as well as being very, very stained. Mattresses were so old springs were poking thru. Went into bathroom, found roaches. Went to front desk to complain and I saw more roaches in the decorations....

So you have several people show up and not enough rooms.This must have been a blessing after I read the reviews!! Do not...

Went into the room after driving for hours and ready to relax. We're not snobs and knew we weren't checking into the Ritz Carleton or anything when we booked the room for $55. Took a minute or 2 to notice but roaches were scurrying around and we got out immediately, I can only imagine how bad it would've been had...

I only needed to sleep a few hours before getting back on the road. I checked the bed before I laid down. The sheets had urine and blood stains on them, as well as hairs. So I laid on a towel on the comforter of the bed. After one hour or sleep, I woke up because I was being bitten....

I and my co-workers are part of a construction company who rented a block of rooms for an extended time. Cockroaches crawled out from under the beds when we turned on our lights. Spiders were in the beds when we turned the covers down. Water bugs flew out of the showers when they were turned on. All the rooms smelled...
