Stayed here 1 night while traveling, and since we have a small dog, it's convenient. Definitely not one of the better ones. Musty smell, a little scary on the area as well. Not very clean. Desk clerk was personable though. Won't make it a stop next time.

Filthy, bleak, ill conceived, bad location, broken fixtures, impacted dirt, mold growing, smelly, hard matresses, tube tvs, no alarm clock; all this for the same price you would pay at a brand new, nicely appointed Motel 6. I'll sleep in my truck before I stay there again.

Pretty much what we expected. Room was dated but clean enough. Included TV with good reception, microwave, refrig and decent WIFI. Bath room needs some work. Soap and towels provided, no tissue, cups, ice, food or coffee. (Waffel House across the street)

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
