Golden Gate Motel is the worse motel ever. Too spend for the scrappy service, rude management, unfinished rooms, and they all need to b painted as well. There is mold in the bathrooms, an owner that has sex with his manager instead of his true wife, and they brag about it like it is what we all do, and its... More

From the moist carpets, to the 1960s old pillows, disgusting bathrooms and not to mention the seedy bar next door, with its patrons retiring to their rooms right next to yours, fighting and screaming for hours on end.. this is...

Where do I begin? With the strip club next door? Or the windows without screens that wouldn't close? Or the bugs or the dirt? Need I say more?
