Expecting a clean little mom and pop motel? Not quite. Terribly worn and dirty carpet, sticky bathroom floor. The heating unit was separated from the wall and the tape job didn't hold so you could actually see right outside! The chair was so stained and dirty I put a towel on it to sit. Old bed, old bedspread. Gold drapes...

I wish there was some way to truly convey how bad this place is. And by bad, I mean gross, nasty, disgusting, smelly, and unsafe. This truly was one of the nastiest hotels I've ever stayed at. * Our door looked like it had been kicked in. Doorknob was a bit sketchy. * Carpet was damp the whole 3 days...

Was in town for work. Booked for two nights. Entered room which door was open as it did not latch. No heat so space heater plugged into wall. Night one went ok. If door slammed hard enough it would latch and stayed somewhat warm. Day two however after a long day of work, we turned on microwave which apparently was...

Pulled into the hotel at around 3 in the afternoon, and there was a passed-out, dirty man draped over a picnic table outside. Methed-out looking couple sitting on the steps to the second level, rambling, arguing, and chain smoking. Building seemed in total disrepair judging from exterior alone. However, we had reservations (had I known how sketchy this place looked,...

The place smelled of urine. The bathroom floor left a dirty print when we walked in. We ran the a.c. to get the smell of smoke out of a "no smoking" room. This was the worst room we ever stayed in. We tried to get our money back but it was too late. The only bright spot was that the...

Hair on the bed upon check in, a real indicator of the overall cleanliness. Mold in the shower. A #$&@ty breakfast (donut gems and Honeybun's, all aldi little Debbie fakes), and they put it out at 7, instead of 6, so the bumbleclot owner can save a few $$$ on the working guests who have to be gone. I also...

First time ever visiting Minnesota and only to see friends. I will never stay at this place again, mattresses were like box springs, only two towels allowed in room when I specified there were 4 people staying. The staff are rude and know nothing about customer service. Telephone doesn't work. No light bulbs in main lamp, bathroom has water damage,...
