Staff was rude at check-in, carpet was at least 20 years old. Pool filled in with dirt. Room needs major updating. Wi-Fi was intermittent at best, if you could get on. Not worth coming back. I will stay at another property when I return to this area.

We found this place to be clean and convenient. This place deserves five stars for the class of motel it is. Simple, old fashioned, clean. Pleasant staff. And so affordable. We are happy we chose Lark. We're not fussy. Included a fridge, coffee maker, air conditioner, microwave, and excellent internet! PLUS! THE SHOWER WAS AMAZING.... water very hot, and the... More

We had 2 rooms and carpet was terrible in both rooms. They were both stained and filthy! Neither rooms had ANY hot water for showering. The shower was cold beginning to end. The room rate plus tax was $66, but not worth the room. Next time will pay more and stay somewhere else.

This place is run down and filthy. Even the towels were dirty as you could see where the maids hands had left brown marks on them! Non smoking room with wires hanging from the ceiling where the smoke detector used to be and an ashtray on the nightstand by the bed. Nicer hotels will offer a low rate to fill... More

Two rooms we tried smelled.. the one we ended up in smells like cat urine... Lights don't work curtains dirty comforter dirty blanket dirty sheets dirty, AC doesn't work. There is no smoke detector in a smoking room. Management is rude and nasty. I would be happier in my car

I stayed at the motel for one night. I can easily see how the negative experiences came about that some of the other users here relate, but I personally had a nice stay. I was treated nicely; the rooms were decently clean. The first room I got had a weird smell in it, like from some industrial cleaning liquid; when... More

With such a selection of nicer motels and hotels in the area, unless you are really on a overly tight budget, I would stay at another motel. The cast of transient characters which are clearly living at the motel make it a bit "creepy", and unless you are a really seasoned travler, I would recommend staying at another location. While...

The worst. Several of us stayed here on a recent motorcycle trip and I don't beleive they have a cleaning staff; stains on the wall, stains on the carpet. The fridge in our room wasn't plugged in and it had a previous guest's chinese take-out inside. After I opened the door I couldn't stand the stench, Since no one arrived... More
