Police were called out to the Hotel 4 times in the 2 days I spent there! 1 car broken into the first night and 3 cars broken into the second night I was there. I was woken up at 3 am from the room next to me Parting! No Security on duty and no one at front desk to take...

We stayed here because of positive TripAdvisor reviews but were disappointed. Our room had no coffee maker, no tissue, no hair dryer. We heard music from next door and feet running overhead. The front desk did not have our reservation made on TripAdvisor on their computer but had to go back to a binder and find the hard copy. When...

This way a bad motel. Not maintained well. The breakfast was not advertised as a continental breakfast but that was all it was. Had a large opening on the door frame that had to be fixed. Three lights were not working when we checked in. It was obvious that the housekeeping didn't know how to turn over a room between...

Still not sure whether this was a regular motel or an apartment building with a few rooms open for nightly use. A lot of the people there looked like they lived there on a permanent basis. Most of the rooms were in a courtyard and the only access point was through the lobby. I wasn't really impressed with the lobby...

Every descriptive word I can think of for this motel starts with a D: drab, dingy, decay, dirty, depressing. We needed a place to stay while heading home from a long road trip. They asked if we wanted non-smoking or smoking and we replied "non," however, the first room reeked of stale smoke. They were friendly at the front desk...

The Big Chile Inn is one of those places that bring back memories of childhood travel with my parents.It is an older style motel with a Ma and Pa owned feel. The rooms were quite comfortable and of a very nice size. They have a refreshing pool in their award winning atrium area. There is also a nice gazebo in...

Kinda of a old school motel. But very good prices and they allow pets. The rooms are very spacious and they have microwave and fridge and plenty of space. They have a cool courtyard and a pool. Would definitely recommend this establishment to my friends

This place looks like it once was good, but they must have sold off the lobby furniture. I felt like I walked into the visiting room of a low security prison. It seems like people were living there as some of the rooms had security screens on them. If it weren't so late at night, we would have gone somewhere...

Hospitality ends when you check-in Rude, Crude, Staff will make your stay as inhospitable as they have done to previously long term guest's. This Corp. has lied to myself and 24 other long term guest, forcing a financial hardship on all including 9 VETERAN"S, on a fixed income.

We chose this motel because we wanted a cheap motel for one night on the way through knowing we would not spend a lot of time in the room, the room was clean and comfortable and there is a nice garden with chairs and barbeque area and swimming pool. For the price we have no complaints at all.
