We recently stayed at this place, at a rate of $65 I was not expecting the Ritz however should not have been charge more than $20 for the entire weekend. First the desk person had to let us into our non-smoking room (which stunk) as the key machine was not working; she said she would have our key over to... More

The bathroom was disgusting, we used a towel to clean the shower because of all the black hair and the towel was actually black when we finished.... More

This was the worst motel I have ever seen in my life and I have stayed at many places. It looked like someone was murdered in the room, with the stains everywhere. I could only imagine in my head who had slept in that bed before me on sheets I am sure were never washed. I really wished I had... More

Worst night sleep in my life! It smelled so bad that I felt sick to my belly and wanted to vomit from the smoke. The first room that the dirty Indian shrew woman showed us smelled worse still. Reception was a disaster. The whole building is very dilapidated and horribly dirty, It looks like the place where you can find... More

I stayed here six years ago (prior to knowing about TripAdvisor ratings/reviews) and I still remember it because it was so disgusting. We were traveling with a thre month old, and we were afraid to let him touch the sheets (obviously dirty). The beds were horrifying (and don't even think about using the "roll away bed"). The bathroom hadn't been... More

I stayed two nights in Auburn, NY to visit family. The motel room had not been vacuumed due to the fact the belt had been broke and the cleaning lady had just received a belt to fix it with that morning. She also had a problem getting supplies to put in the room. the motel was full and only one... More
