Gross. I’ve stayed at ones like this before and they were ok. But this was just disgusting. There were dead roaches, hair in the bathtub and bathroom floor, the smoke detector was taped to the ceiling, I couldn’t get the cold water to work in the bathtub, it didn’t plug, cobwebs, the bolt lock was broken, holes in the door.

This is not a real motel. It's a place of horror! It's a scam. It's a run down building with most of the rooms destroyed inside crawling with bed bugs and other insects, as well as blood stains all over. We ran away from it as soon as we saw it. The scammers still did not refund our money, even though we obviously didn't stay there. Had to dispute through credit card.

How is this place even in business? Most disgusting place that I have ever been in. Parking lot full of crackheads.

We travel quite a bit for work and this place was pretty surprising. We walked into our room and the floors were sticky full of soda that someone has dropped. There was also some candy and some half eating lollipops laying on the ground it seemed as if someone had come in I just made the beds but never sleep sweet there mopped the floors. The bathroom alsoappeared To be and cleaned. As I laid on the bed on three different occasions I had cockroaches crawling on the bed and on my body. When I pullEd back the sheets I saw other cockroaches between the sheets. I have to say I’ve never seen such a thing in a hotel. There is no breakfast of any kind including no coffee in the morning. Even though it says so in the description.

I checked in to the motel after 8 hours of driving. After about an hour I got up from bed and found a cockroach in bed with me. I went to the office to check out and get my money back and the clerk offered me another room. I’m sorry but if one room has cockroaches, they are all infested. I contacted the manager the following day and have to hear from her. Very disgusted by this motel and it’s customer service.

Breakfast are was too small. Being remodelled. It was awkward with no TV.

They were extremely friendly and helpful and seemed genuninely concerned for my comfort

Very run down. Stains on the sink, toilet and shower. The room door had a huge gap all around it that you could see daylight through. Had to stuff a towel in the gaps for the night.

The ice machine at the hotel was broke. Had a sign saying it was being repaired but it looks like a permanent sign. This place need some upkeep. Breakfast items were out. The staff never refilled the items. I went down on two separate occasions. I was hard pressed to even get coffee in the morning. While not stay here again.

This was by far the most unclean hotel I’ve ever experienced. The sheets were questionable, the floor was slimy, there were stains on the bathroom wall, the tub was disgusting. And the real kicker was the live cockroach in one of the drawers. I had to leave early I was so grossed out.

The rooms were dirty. The first room they assigned me was disgusting and stinky. I asked for another room but that room was still dirty! The sheets were not clean! When I pulled the covers back there were chip crumbs on the sheets so I had to go to front dresk and ask for a fresh set of linen. The dresser, T.V, coffe maker, etc was very dusty. Its obvious that house keeping do not care about making sure the rooms are actually cleaned and sanitized. I will never stay here again!

This hotel was unacceptable. The service was horrible, the clerk never took the headphones out of his ears. The door did not lock and had been bashed it to barely close. The peep hole was missing and had been covered with tape. The location was terrifying with people smoking cram and needles all over the ground.

This hotel is clearly a very old building that was repainted, but still requires a lot of repair. The staff was unprofessional, the shower had gobs of mildew on the walls, and there were unknown substances splattered on the walls and ceiling. The only positive aspect of the experience is that is was inexpensive.
