Went into the room after driving for hours and ready to relax. We're not snobs and knew we weren't checking into the Ritz Carleton or anything when we booked the room for $55. Took a minute or 2 to notice but roaches were scurrying around and we got out immediately, I can only imagine how bad it would've been had... More

I only needed to sleep a few hours before getting back on the road. I checked the bed before I laid down. The sheets had urine and blood stains on them, as well as hairs. So I laid on a towel on the comforter of the bed. After one hour or sleep, I woke up because I was being bitten.... More

All bad reviews you read here are absolutely true. The owners are nice but they have not spent a dime on this... More

I and my co-workers are part of a construction company who rented a block of rooms for an extended time. Cockroaches crawled out from under the beds when we turned on our lights. Spiders were in the beds when we turned the covers down. Water bugs flew out of the showers when they were turned on. All the rooms smelled... More

We booked thru hotwire and was very disappointed. Room wasn't bad, but the remote didn't work, guide for TV was old, slight mildew odor in room, but not overpowering. Room fairly clean. People on first floor looked like boarders, not hotel guests. 4th of July weekend and the pool looked like it wasn't open for a couple of years, playground... More

Luckily we only stayed one night. When we first checked into our room, the remote would not work. They moved us down to the other end. First thing you notice is that most of the ther rooms are not made, curtains are pulled back so you can clearly see that no one is staying there yet at 7pm they had... More
