Creepy place. Don't do it!

I am a big guy, and I was not comfortable at this hotel both during the day and especially at night. Shady looking characters were hanging out at all times, even at 3:30 a.m. when I woke up to catch a red-eye. There was a constant flow of cars in and out to meet up with the shady characters. You figure that out. I did my best to not make eye contact... My wife would have demanded her money back. If she was with me, would not have stayed. To boot, the remote for the TV didn't work.

Alright for the money

alright for the money could prob stay at a red roof inn or chain motel for the same price and be more comfortable. My advice ask for a room by the office the other side has alot of shady people walking around at night.

What u would expect for $50

Pros: Internet, refrigerator, microwave, friendly staff, good access to major highways. Cons: funky smelling non-smoking rooms, low lighting, no continental breakfasts, no hangers, towels are not soft, no desk, internet works better closer u are to the lobby, older hotel.

Old, run down, you get what you pay for..

Cheapest hotel close to the Fairgrounds, only 1 mile drive. Also only 1 mile drive from the Hard Rock casino. Nothing else close by except for a Wendys. Room was old, sheets very old, but had been washed. No table in room, no bedstand or lights by the bed. Shower ran scalding hot one second then cold the next. Check-in person was friendly and efficient after taking a minute to finish her cigarette outside.

Not Great

We just needed an inexpensive place to crash so it worked for us. I wouldn't want to take my family there. Carpet was pretty gross and we saw numerous roaches.

Awful experience!

Our sheets felt dirty, and we found 6 German cockroaches spread throughout the room, alive! We slept in our car and the hotel would not refund our room. Staff was friendly. The room looked clean, but the carpet needed a deep clean as well as the bed sheets. They left mints on out pillows. I wouldn't recommend.
