We were forced to stay here during severe icy weather. We found a dirty used condom in not one room but two! The ceiling was leaking and chipping in one room and the heater did not work in either of the rooms. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed at and I was only there because of being stranded in an ice storm. The floor in my room was dirty, the ceiling was leaking water onto the other bed. The ceiling was falling apart in several places. The place honestly only deserves one star but I gave it... More

We drove over 900 miles and we're tired. Stopped here for night. Wish we had kept going. The room was filthy. The remains of someone's bowel movement still on toilet. Dead roaches on floor and woke up to a massive live roach on bathroom wall. I couldn't even take shower because I was afraid roaches were going to drop on... More

From the filthy carpets, broken coffee machine (main office), dirty old blanket, broken ice machine, poor mattress and smoky smell (in a non-smoking room) to the four large cockroaches that I killed I would venture to say that this is the worst hotel that I ever stayed in. Motel 6 is not the Hilton and I did not expect it... More
