this was a quick booking to attend my brother in laws funeral. had to come from columbia. and with the short notice, i was able to get 2 rooms for under $200 with this motel. it was well worth that cost. i was concerned it would be a dump, but i was limited on funds, as we were not financially prepared for a trip like this, so i had to go with it. like i said, it was well worth the money. thanks.

Terrible hotel. Smells bad, "breakfast" was some chocolate donuts, orange juice and toast. Not worth a penny to stay there.

I have never in my life stayed in such a disgusting hotel. The first room they gave us was very tiny, had mold growing in the refrigerator, what appeared to be a blood stain on the bathroom door, hair on the bathroom counter and in the bathtub, dirty bathroom floors, dirty carpet and stank something awful, like urine. I asked to be moved to a different room. Second room had hair on the sheets inside bed, hair in the bathtub and around toilets, dirty refrigerator, dirty and freshly stained comforter (red sauce like spaghetti or something), dead bugs in the dresser drawers. I had to ask for cleaning solution to clean the bathroom and refrigerator myself because staff would not clean it. The cleaning staff ( 2 ladies) was very rude when called to clean the room except, 1 very nice lady (responsible only for cleaning the laundry) who attempted to try to help us. When we changed the bed linen ourselves, we found the dead bed bugs. While attempting to relax before bed, a roach crawled up on my daughters chest. All other places in this area booked so no option to move to a different hotel. Just stuck at this location. Now I can see why they want you to pay when you arrive for check in, not when you leave. I thought this was unusual, but never put it together until it was too late to get a refund. I do not travel that often. This was a terrible learning experience. When I asked for a partial refund, the answer was no. This place should be shut down!!
