We were at this dump for 20 minutes. The "non smoking" room smelled like a dirty laundry hamper. The room was filthy, food on the floor under the edge of the bed. Hair in the sink. Half of the lights didn't work because the light bulbs were GONE. Then .....There were.....The bugs........behind the mattress next to the wall (roac hes)... More

There were 10 of us and we bought 3 rooms. It started off with the property, it was very run down, puke( which never got cleaned up during our stay) and a used condom in the parking lot. There were also used condoms in the trees beside of the steps! After walking by 2 trap rooms, one on each corner.... More

On the way to Key West, FL via Southwest airlines out of the Birmingham, AL airport, we decided on this grim place due to price, as did others. Although it was August, it seemed like May Day with plenty of red flags flying. Indeed, like the Knight's Inn chain, the motel was a takeover of a defunct Holiday or Day's... More

The cheapest place around. To me, it looks like another old Holiday Inn, based on the layout of the rooms. They say ‘truck parking,’ but it is just a big lot with lots of room. Nothing is ‘dedicated’ for trucks, tonight the place is almost empty (as is the Holiday Inn across the street), and there are some tight turns... More

This hotel ranks right along side the Knights Inn, dirty linen, a blank I didn't even want to sit on and a non-smoking room with cigarette stains. This was a Days Inn which I assume had lost its flag, closing it is the only way to improve it.

I found hair remains in the shower, the tiled floor was slippery w/ grime, the plumbing could definitely use updates, & one of the bedspreads had a stain on top. I reserved the room w/o viewing by using Customer Service @ Delta Airlines. Great value, $64 but location, is awkward and parking is tight.
