When we checked in the key card that the clerk gave us would not open the door. i went back to the desk, and the clerk informed me that the lock on that door would not work, and she would have to unlock it each time that we wanted to enter the room. I objected and she gave us another... More

Had a horrible experience. Property looks old, rooms are old with old furniture, and place smells. Wanted to watch the cowboys vs giants game on nbc and low and behold, they dont have any local channels. I mean no FOX, NBC, CBS, or ABC. Had to go to a bar to watch the game, came back to the room and... More

This place is an utter dump. The hotel clerk told me I was staying in a room that had a bunch of fly's in it because the previous person left the window open. I thought it was a poor attempt at humor. She was actually telling the truth. The room smelled like wet dirty socks. The furniture was worn or... More

Total nightmare from beginning to end. The front desk purposely over charged us for the room. In total we we're shown three rooms that were pitiful in cleanliness standards. The first room had a filthy bathroom with used soap wrappers on the sink. The sketchy looking male on duty insisted he had a better room. There was a clogged sink,... More

It's hard to know where I should begin but let me start by saying that I have stayed at this motel at least once a year for a week at a time the last 3 years and between last year and now it seems to have entered into a viral downhill spiral! One of the most unsettling points being the... More

The five stars are based primarily on value- by no means do I think this is a 5-Star rated hotel and I'm not lining up to spend my honeymoon here. A regular room was $50 including tax. Compared to other places I have stayed for this cheap, and also what I would expect from a $50 hotel room, I was... More

I can review this hotel as far the lobby. Booked a reservation five days in advance through the ChoiceHotels "club" which I joined to get good rates for a future trip to Washington. For a quick trip to Decatur, I thought I'd go ahead and reserve through Choicehotels. Now I know this is an inexpensive place. I don't mind getting... More

I stayed here for two nights in August 2011 and I had no problems. I had a No Smoking room and I smelled absolutely no smoke or incense so I have no idea what the other reviewers are talking about. Frankly, I spend many nights in motels and I really don't see how a reviewer could honestly give this motel... More

Wow from the time you walk into the office were you are rudely met by the owner to the time you walk into the hallway then into your rather dirty room, the smell of sandalwood kicks you in the face! The rooms are nasty the sheets are stained so are the towels yet the smell of incense stinks up the... More
