I can't believe this place hasn't been condemned by the city - it's disgustingly FILTHY. UNSANITARY. CREEPY. GROSS!!!! Had to have the house fumigated so my husband and I stayed at the motel for one night. BIG MISTAKE. Our room had more roaches than my house! We had to sleep with the lights on. we couldnt7

This place was creepy and filthy and nasty. Your rooms can be accessed by anyone because the stairs are OUTSIDE. The stairs had barbwire on them and lots of rust every where. The rooms were not at all satisfying. The TV remote didn't work and neither did the TV buttons. The beds weren't comfortable. Don not go this hotel. It... More

We sorry that you were not comfortable staying in Travel Inn. We are replacing new beds for the whole motel (some were replaced already). The 4th floor stair to the roof are barbwire to ensure public safety. When TV remote control or TV is not working right, please let the front office know so we will correct it. The housekeepers...

I am so happy to have survived my 2 day stay at this establishment. I would have left this hotel, but there were no other available vancancies in the city. I warn you to please go elsewhere. There were thugs and protitutes everywhere. The rooms were disgusting. I requested fresh bedding and decided to change it myself. The mattresses were... More

If it were not for the location and service, I would have rated this property a 1 in all categories. Dirty, dark and musty, not worth your money. Spend a little more and look into Rodeway Inn just next door!!! Newly renovated, parking is a little tight late at night but was able to park across the street. If you're... More

Old Zenith TV that had no color. By far the worst hotel. I'm reporting this hotel to the health department. I knew there would be a problem when I... More

A friend and I booked this hotel as a last resort. It was the only hotel available during the weekend for a remotely cheap price. I wish we had paid the $100+ for a better room. The location is pretty shady, but not the worse. The room was dirty. It appeared as though they did zero maintenance. The bathroom was... More

This hotel uses a photo of Howard Johnsons, which it is NOT. The hotel is in a less than desirable area. Rooms are rented as housing for locals to live in. The room was a "suit". It had a small kitchenette, separate sitting area and bedroom bath combo. The room was dirty and smelled like mold/mildew. Parking is bad, as... More

We did't find last minute available rooms elsewhere, so we got a room here. The price is OK, compared to other nicer hotels, and the room was big, with a fridge and coffee maker (a plus). However, the walls are paper thin, it's very outdated, rugs are dirty, and they don't seem to change sheets and towels after a guest... More
