The price for a room here was a little more than I expected for an entire month but it works. I got a large room with a comfortable king size bed, a mini fridge, microwave, a very large dresser, a table and chair, and a comfortable chair to sit in. This room is nothing fancy, and it may need a... More

Golden Gate Motel is the worse motel ever. Too spend for the scrappy service, rude management, unfinished rooms, and they all need to b painted as well.

The Golden Gate Motel is terrible! I hate to say that, because the owner (who lives onsite) is really nice. In fact, she gave me a refund with no hassle. What can I say: there was a hole in the bathroom ceiling, rust around the bathtub, the frame of the 30-year-old microwave was coming apart, the walls needed about three... More

This is definately THE worst motel i have ever stayed in.. and i have stayed in some pretty seedy motels.. From the moist carpets, to the 1960s old pillows, disgusting bathrooms and not to mention the seedy bar next door, with its patrons retiring to their rooms right next to yours, fighting and screaming for hours on end.. this is...

Where do I begin? With the strip club next door? Or the windows without screens that wouldn't close? Or the bugs or the dirt? Need I say more?
