I recommend staying for one night when you're extremely drunk with a bunch of friends just for the story you'll come out with. It's a disgusting pit of despair worthy of any horror movie. The only Alamo worth remembering... or forgetting immediately.

This was by far the worst motel Ihave ever stayed in. The room smelled terrible and the bathroom got worst. Don't think it was ever cleaned. It smelled like someone had urinated all over in there. There was only about 1/3 of a roll of toilet paper and no soap. We had to drive to Walmart at 10:30 at night... More

We saw the room. It may be a good sleep here but don't expect anything newish as the furnishings are seemingly worn with age. There is no ice machine for your drink nor do they have any ice freely proffered at the office. The best features of this place is all the staff is especially nice, warm and friendly so... More

Could take place in a Tarentino movie. All comments you read are exact and accurate. I paid in advance and finaly dis not stay. Too dirty and felt unsafe. But somehow i am happy to have been there. It makes a good story to tell for my wife and I

Dirty, the room was so smoky you could hit the curtains and smoke seeped out! Dirty, holes in the mattress, black mold on wall, broken tv. When the electric went out we left - we felt it was a dangerous place to be especially with no lights. I we had looked at the room before we rented we never would... More

We stayed here because we were stuck. Room smelled strongly of smoke and mildew. We asked the manager about the mild in the shower and he said it was hard to get rid of. Dirty. Old junk furniture everywhere. Horrible. Just horrible.

This was a night mare and I had to stay here because I came with my friends on a Fourth of July weekend and my friends claim this was the only thing available and that they paid $250 a night wish is outrageous! I don't believe them but it is just horrible. The bathroom was terrible and gross. The doors... More
