Listed as a 3 star. Barely a one star Dirty, dingy, nasty everywhere. Found garbage left on top of microwave and behind entertainment system. Very rundown looking everywhere. Door doesn’t close well. Very little maintenance of the building. Very dark looking interior, poor lighting. Windows very dirty, screen is out and has holes in it. Rooms not sound proof. Wall... More

Also they will not refund if you dont stay as long as you originally planed. There are much better for much less, the rooms were not the dirtiest I have seen, but they certainly have... More

It was smelly, old, the staff was rude. DO NOT GO HERE. IT IS NOT WORTH FIVE DOLLARS!!! I hated it so much. It is NOT in a safe area. The pool was in a green house and the water looks like pee! This place needs to be bulldozed!

We cancelled our reservation on the spot after going into the lobby. It smelled old, looked old and the hotel clerk looked very bad was on a cell phone yelling and didnt even acknowledge us initially. It was in a bad area near auto repair shops with no other hotels nearby. Dont even try it

We took a family driving vacation this year and ended up staying here. What a mistake! This place is VERY rundown, the staff was not friendly, you only got coffee or donuts in the morning if you were fast enough. The pool area is listed as indoor - but it's not! They put up some plastic "greenhouse" walls that are... More
