This is the worst motel I have ever seen and we've travelled a fair bit. I booked in haste and repented the minute I entered the room. It was dirty, the carpet stained, the place looked shabby and smelled terrible! I insisted on another room and that was worse there was a mess bubbling up in the bath, nasty covers... More

4p.m. - First room: No working air conditioning. Second room: Someone sleeping in. Third room: Ants and roaches (5.30p.m.). Fouth room by 2a.m.: Rats eating our chips. Do I have to say something else? We decides to sleep in the car till 7a.m. when the manager should arrive. The neighborhood is not the best even not for Miami.

The carpet was wet! They didn't have any towels in my room. They advertise free wifi but couldn't get the password. Everything in the room is broken... no lock in the bathroom door, the ac knob is missing, the doors on the tv cabinet are busted off. Shoulda checked here first!!

I feel this Motel has gotten a bad rap. Out of purely budgetary concerns, we stayed here because it was so cheap in spite of the bad online reviews we read. It is not for uptight suburbanites, but there is something charming about it. I feel like they could should a Jim Jarmusch movie here. The rug in our room... More

Our room wasn't as bad as some of these reviews. We had room 102 which was clean and without a carpet, but very sparse, yet a clean bed was all that we were really looking for, hence the 2 stars(although the roof of the bathroom was MOLDY!!). You have to plug in all the lights and such when you walk... More

Stayed there for ultra. No electricity in the room. Mattresses were stained significantly. Dirty carpet. AC didn't work. No curtains. Watched the maintenance guy put up blinds in our room. No cleaning service. Used to stAy here every year for ultra. Definitely run down over the years. No help from the staff.
