My wife and I were exhausted after spending 12 hours on the road and the rate seemed good, and that's where the "GOOD" ends. The room smelled horrible, holes in the sheets and stains on the sheets so we asked for another room. We got it. It was worse. Dead roaches all over the floor and in the bathtub, (one... More

We chose this hotel for proximity to the event we were attending. At first glance the room looked average. Clean. Bedding OK. Bathroom better than expected. But there was a big crack in the sliding glass doors -- mended with clear packing tape. The lock on the sliders was broken, the door held closed and locked with a metal bar.... More

Stayed here the weekend for Fest last year (annual punk/indie/emo/hardcore festival). So, I guess I should say going in that I am not one to splurge on a place to crash after being out and about all day/night. What can I say? It is a cheap hotel, it gets the job done. If you are fussy about smoking, decor, atmosphere,... More

I mistakenly booked this hotel and could not cancel the reservation. I thought I was booking a different hotel.I rate this "hotel" at the very bottom of the list. It's one positive is the female morning clerk. Very pleasant and nice, but could not make-up for the sordid condition of the room. It was very musky, carpets looked worn and... More

If we hadn't had plans already made to be meeting friends we would have walked out on this Motel. First the clerk tries to tell me I have two rooms reserved ... but as a courteous she'll correct (whatever why would I need two). Then she tells us we have to plug in things we want to use .... one... More

Old, dilapidated, scary motel. It was supposed to be a non-smoking room but it reeked in stale cigarette smoke. I am highly allergic to cigarette smoke so I had a sick headache & woke up with my face swollen. The sheets & pillowcases appeared to be clean but I was afraid to look at the mattress. I was also afraid... More

DO NOT stay here. Dirty, creepy and neglected. Balcony totally disgusting. Shut the drapes immediately. Thought I would catch a disease here. Surprising that it remains in business at all. Zero star review.

We only stayed here because an event in town filled all the other hotels and we had to see our grandsons. The room was large and may at one time been nice but it now needs a lot of work. It looked like a recent coat of paint had bean applied but no drop clothes were used and the carpet... More

The issue with this hotel wasn't that is was particularly dirty, but that it wasn't particularly clean. I think the biggest reason for this is that the rooms are dated, but does that really matter when you're just there to fall asleep? There was an old pillow case laying on top of the TV (presumably from cleaning and just being... More
