Reviewed 2 September 2011

Dirty, rude staff, and despite the aircon being on freezing cold for 30 mins the room was still 100F

This joint is Nasty and the staff is RUDE to a fault. They are well over priced for the Slum that it is. My employer booked the room as lodging for myself. They have huge problems
with the Fire Alarm system as it goes off for almost any reason or time of night.
Further they have long term renters that are on the Sexual Registry as offenders.
Also some mentally ill woman walks around the hall ways screaming and rambling. at any time of the night. I discourage all to look for a more suitable and clean hotel for their needs.Cheap rates will save a buck or two, but it is money wasted. Go some where else .Also the photo's show a swimming pool, NOT it is a water trap now and full of bugs.
I would not ever stay there again. I almost quit my job as my employer would not rebook me into a cleaner hotel. I needed my job,so for a cheap room rate I suffered that nasty hole in the wall. I did inform my boss that I would not ever stay there again. And that I would resign if he insisted that I stay there again.

I have stayed in some real stink holes in my time, but this one was by far the worst! When I got to my room there was marijuana stems between the sheets and it appeared the sheets had been used by a hooker just before I arrived. I also found a used tampon in the dresser drawer. When I complained to the manager, he demanded I leave and called the police. If I could have found another room anywhere in town I most certainly would have, and even seriously considered sleeping in my car. After reflection, I should have. This place is the most disgusting and vile place I have ever seen! DO NOT GO NEAR THIS PLACE!

We have a high tolerance for the occasional "mom & pop" or even a slightly "flea-bag" motel. This place was over our line, which was pretty low.

- Parked next to abandon vehicle with two flat tires
- Drunk approached us for beer, followed us in to the lobby and then we discovered he was a resident there.
- First room hadn't been cleaned. Second room was only slightly better.
- Large dog in next room barked
- Random person pounded on our door very late
- Hard core porn on the TV.

We considered leaving, but knew we couldn't get a refund. We steeled ourselves, got thru the night and then first thing in the morning my husband looked at me and I said, "Let's get out of this skank-hole." We both burst out laughing and had a pretty jolly time packing up to get as far from this place as possible.

Only reason I stopped there was I had a coupon giving a reduced rate. They refused to honor it because the state fair was there that weekend. Found out later the state fair ended a few hour before we checked in. Breakfast was minimal. It might have been worth the reduced rate but not the rate they charged. Because they did not honor their own coupon, I will not stay ther again.
