There is no way to describe. There is mold in the bathroom, holes in the ceiling, the sink is held up by a stick, the toilet has about 4 inches of leg room, it smells like someone smokes a pack of cigarettes before I walked in (and I'm a smoker so that says something), the microwave is nasty, and door...

I stayed here in summer 2009, and it was great. The best part is that every room is an entire room-sized house with bathroom and shower. Instead of a kitchen there was just a mini fridge and microwave, too. There was free wireless internet, even that long ago, and the front desk had bathroom and hygiene items for sale. I... More

It's called a motel, but they are actually cabins. My first impression on entering the room was that it was a smoking room. I assumed they were all the same so I didn't ask for another. And, It smelled better than the private residence I had been visiting, so I decided to stay. It certainly wasn't fancy, but it was... More

I stayed here during memorial day weekend, and absolutely loved it. It was a cottage style motel, something that is unusual these days. My favorite part is that they had a queen size bed, with a refrigerator and microwave at no extra cost!

Please, at all costs, avoid this cockroach club. Go stay at a Best Western for just a few more dollars. The room is incredibly small and uncomfortable. It's literally a bed, a crappy TV on the wall, and a tiny little bathroom. I can't imagine prison being much worse. The room smelled like a strip club. I was on the... More

In September of 2008, I rented a room from a stranger. Immediately, I regretted that decision, but as we all know something wonderful awaits us just over the bend. For Sabastian and I, it would be that I would pass by, "The Rainbow Motel", everyday on my way to work. As we passed it I would think, 'How Cute"! I... More
