I never comment, but where to start? I also had experienced the receiving of other people's credit card and driver's license information on the back of my motel map and they never could print me out a receipt. Both completely unacceptable! The lack of simple maintenance was apparent all over the property. Cigarette butts everywhere. Actually the smell of cigarette... More

We stayed here for only one night, and won't be back. I'm not normally a "complainer," and generally find the good in a given place. Unfortunately, this place didn't have any good points. After reading previous reviews, we didn't want to stay here, but all the other hotels in the area were booked. One of our biggest concerns was a... More

June 6th 2014. Lobby front doors were so dirty, smell in the lobby and rooms. Breakfast area had cats running every where. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Will never stay there again. Bad!

I truly did not know hotels this awful existed. We were with a group and had 3 rooms booked. Where do I begin...it was dirty, the lobby smelled like cigarettes, there were many bugs in the bathrooms, the rooms smelled like cat urine, the beds had stains on them. After arriving late in the evening and no other hotels available... More

I cannot even begin to capture in words how truly horrible our experience was in this hotel. We were booked for two nights and the only positive thing I can say is that they didn't charge us for the second night...when we cancelled after staying the 1st night! There were 11 of us...taking a girl's trip to Canton. 3 rooms.... More

Old and run down. Rooms were very hot as air conditioners were not on so it was a long time before room cooled down. The hotel smelled like smoke even though my room was non smoking. The breakfast was cereal only that had ants crawling all over it and they had ran out of milk. It was disgusting!!

The bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean. Those are the nicest things I can say. The lobby smells of stale cigarettes, the clerk hasn't seen a razor in days. The pretty pool you see in the pictures is empty and covered with a blue tarp. There were cobwebs with dead spiders in the corners of the room. Our dresser... More

This hotel needs work. There's roaches (dead and alive) all over the place. The beds are pretty comfortable, but the atmosphere is nasty. It smells like smoke everywhere. The service isn't too good either. When the remote in our room stopped working, I had to go to the desk about three times. And when I asked for a TV guide,... More
