nastiest motel ever

I booked 3 rooms over the weekend. One room had stains on the bed and the door wouldn't lock. The staff replaced the door and the bedding. Considering that the room was just 'cleaned' left us a bit miffed. The 2nd room was dirty as well. The AC unit in the 3rd room smelled sour and the shower head was busted so that it felt like being sprayed by a pressure hose. I will not be booking with this motel again!

Not horrible, not great.

For the price, in the area, it wasn't horrible. Rooms were clean. Linens and interiors seemed updated. Door had a lot of light around it at night. AC was on 54 degrees when we got in room. It was comfortable. Never touched it the entire time but it was definitely not 54 in the room!! Maybe time for replacing. Continental breakfast was not impressive. They were out of OJ and employee said the Apple juice was frozen which only left coffee. My 4 yr old doesn't drink coffee yet. They weren't apologetic about the inconvenience. When we ask about it that's what she told us and them continued her conversation with another employee. They were both rude. Pool said open at 8. At 830 we ask employee about it. 10 mins later she came and unlocked it. Prob wouldn't stay their again.

Disgusted

The bathtub looked like it had never been cleaned, the water was running from time to time on the toilet, the room smelled and the furniture was all wobbly. I will never use this place ever again.

Terrible

Walls and door paper thin. People stood outside our room yelling and cussing til 2 am. Didnt feel safe at all. Dead bug in bathtub next morning that wasnt there the night before. Didnt smell good. Car got hit in parking lot and person didnt say anything (pretty sure it was person who works there drives white truck that sits lower on the right side) front desk staff was nice at check in. Waste of money!

Not so good

The room needs updating. The carpet was worn pretty bad in places. The microwave oven face was missing rendering the microwave unusable. The peephole in the door was installed backwards enabling people to see into the room. The shower button wouldn't push in to allow the wate to come out the faucet.

Not impressed

The free breakfast was a muffin and some watered down apple/orange juice.

Bed bugs are real here

The biggest problem with the motel was the 7-10 insects I had to kill the last night there. They were crawling all around the night stand and I don?t even want to think about them crawling in my bed while I was sleeping. I would recommend to my friends that they not stay there and I will never stay there again.
