If you are able to get a connection, it will only... More

Sorry you had a bad experience, will fix the rates posted, and the rooms do come with soap and it is available at the front desk. We have pest control with Eco Lab glad you were able to find something entertaining on TV. Give us another chance we have many remodeled rooms that are available with a credit card authorization.

Let me put it to you this way: Roaches, bedbugs, hookers, swingers, drug addicts, and gang bangers. DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILDREN. Any questions?

Although there customer service was great, the motel is dated and OLD. It is in desperate need of a remodel. The owners are very nice. My family was sickened with the condition of the room. Hate to leave the negative review because they were so nice. But traveler beware...
