People partying in the parking lot until 4 a.m. Cars and people in and out of the parking lot. People yelling and throwing things. Trash everywhere. Never, ever again will I stay here or recomend this place to anyone.

The hotel provided a clean and quiet room, comfortable bed, friendly personnel, and a nice and much appreciated work table. Nothing fancy. The refrigerator was also nice to have. I do wish there had been a radio and facial tissues.

This hotel is the absolute worst pig sty of a place you'll ever see and the management are a bunch of crooks. The first room they tried to give us was full of black mold and wall paper was falling off the walls. The second room they tried to give us had splatters of blood on the wall and comforter.... More

Never EVER will I stay here again! I am a young married mother of a 6 month old so we are very low budget but I should have spent the extra $10 & left this hotel immediately! The room itself was dirty, I didn't even want to use the toilet or shower. The tv really didn't work & there is... More

I have stayed in a hotel in 47/50 states and this one is in the top 5-scary. I can't complain because I stayed here, when my instincts told me to leave when I pulled up. Bad: Neighborhood, bed sheets where itchy, tv was fuzzy with no HBO. There are many people who live on this property and you know how... More

Only stayed in town for three days and this motel was a nightmare! One of the permanent residents had his truck on blocks and had the transmission out. Another guest, a girl maybe 25 years old was trying to say something to me but she was so messed up on something I could not understand her so she just stumbled... More

This motel is one of the worst I have stayed in. It is old and needs to be updated badly. The room stunk of Febreeze so bad we had to air out the room. When we checked in the cable and Internet did not work. The room phone hardly worked. And the pool, the reason we booked this hotel, is... More
