The $32.99 on the sign is a scam, i paid $62 for my room & it was not worth it! The lobby smells like cigarettes, there are scetches looking people hanging around and my little boy found a Crack pipe out in the grass!!! Do yourself a favor and avoid this place it's not safe for kids!

On room 504, have a bedbugs. I have over 30 bedbug bite all over my body. I went to the lobbies and told them o bed bugs, and they were indifferent to the pest problem they have. Seems they do not care to solve the problem.

If you want to find drug paraphernalia in your room, rude staff and management from hell, stay here. Don't believe the $32.95 rate on the sign, it's like winning the lottery if you can get it. Don't bother making reservations because they'll take the reservation and when you show-up, they won't know when the room will be ready. This is... More

Lobby smelled gross,elevators smelled bad, shower temperatures fluctuate to scolding hot or freezing every 30 seconds or so, the front desk staff are very rude and even if there are two or three employees behind it doing nothing they will...

The rooms were dirty, I found SALT on my bed (or at least that's what it looked like) When I told the front desk, they told me I would have to make my own bed and go get the sheets. We had no toilet paper at all! The halls were a complete mess. Someone threw toilet paper every where and... More

I needed to stay a week and was told they had a room, so I left a reservation. When I arrived the next day the "reservation" was no longer there and was told that they were not taking them the day before. Regardless the staff must be trained properly and the reservation should have been honored. The "free wifi" is... More

I am not sure what all the terrible reviews are about. All of these reviews are completely negative, and I totally disagree. I have stayed in this motel SEVERAL times. And will continue to. I have been traveling across the US all summer, and for a Motel at $50 a night, I am extremely satisfied. The staff is very helpful... More

This place was just disgusting! Yes, it looks okay from the highway & the rates seemed good, but we knew why the minute we stepped through the doors. Everything about this place was dirty & gross, except the lobby& price, that is why chose this motel. The lady at the front desk was really nice, but everything else was questionable.... More
