Dirtiest hotel I've ever booked. I decided to stay here simply because it was the least expensive hotel that did not come up on the bed bug registry. Probably because the people that stay there have more than just bed bugs to spread. Stained carpet, dirty used towels hung and folded, no toilet paper, "redrum" written on the mirror, several...

The beds were comfortable, but there were only 2 pillows per bed and 3 towels per room. No extras for the pool, which was murky and greenish. The room did not seem clean and out of 3 days we only received housekeeping service on the first and third. The area of town was poor and did not seem safe. The... More

The motel is outdated and old, but the room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was very small. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The only downfalls were the smell of the room, the 'old' smell in the room was very strong and the ceiling was brown and cracked in spots and there was a hole in the wall... More

I took my family on a roadtrip, had reserved the hotel in advance with it stating children stay in the rooms at no extra charge, when I tried to book, for the children, it raised the price, so I called the ABVI 800# she said to just book for the 2 adults, and print out the hotels policy,,, Thank God...

The lobby ( once you find it) doesn't look too bad. But was not representative of the room we stayed in. Large hole in the wall behind the door where it had been forced opened, stained sheets with holes, bathroom barely functional, odd smelling towels and loud drug induced behavior all night long. We didn't complain....just left ASAP. Any positive... More

We had to leave our home due to a flood cause the conditions at our home were hazardous. The staff at this hotel was the first part of our horrible experience. I don't think any of them knew how to smile. "Yash" in particular was a real piece of work. He was in attentive, rude, and turned out to be... More
