I stayed actually 2 weeks. I wrote a previous review right when I checked in which was a bit harsh, but declined to post it and I am glad I did give this place a chance. Is it the best place? No. The price was what I needed to pay and they accept pets for a small fee. There were... More

The electric outlets had no covers and really dangerous. The same night ther were prostitutes doing bussniess in the parking lot. Take my advise and buy a tent... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback and an account of your stay. We are, however, disappointed to hear that there were several issues during your stay. We are always pleased to get reviews from "professionals" that are able to pick up so quickly on illegal activity, We only wish local law enforcement was as observant.... More

This was our only option for a place to stay during our last trip. The room wasn't cleaned. There were dirty personal items in the trash, band-aides stuck on the comforters and absolutely no towels. We feared for our life the whole time we were there and I would never recommend this hotel ever.

I booked this motel for one night. It was suppose to be the last room available. From looking at the pictures I was happy with this room. And it was only 86$. When we got to the room, I was disgusted! Very disgusting! Trash and filth everywhere. The room was NOT the room I seen in the photos. I talked... More

This place is average but it was the best price. Room was clean and had a microwave & little fridge. The pool was great and I liked that there is a laundry room close to the lobby. The people next door loud for a few minutes but it was brief. Probably stay again.
