I should have known better as soon as I pulled into the parking lot. Lots of trash. Was very tired, decided to check in anyway. Staff was friendly. Went to my room, A/C did not work, lamps didn't work either. Went to front desk, staff member couldn't get A/C to work either, lamps were all unplugged. Moved to another room,... More

First off the smell of cigarette smoke was overwhelming when we walked through the door to the hotel.But We set that aside and went ahead and checked in. Walked down the hall and room doors were open like the people who were in those rooms have occupied them for awhile. Staff was friendly but we both got a bad feeling... More

This was by far the worst experience I've had a hotel. Upon entering the lobby is shabby, but the help is friendly - that's all the place has going for it. The carpet on the stairs was so filthy that it was almost soggy and you could hardly see the carpet design. The room climate-control system cycled on and off... More

I made a reservation via phone. Arrived at about 2 AM and was approached by a prostitute in the parking lot. I then was offered entry by someone standing in an open doorway. It appears this motel has many long term residents who do not need to get up for work. The rooms show years of wear and tear. Red... More

Stayed one night. Room was clean, quiet and bed was comfortable. Started running water in the bathtub to take a shower and noticed accumulation-drain not working properly. Same with the sink. Water was still in tub the following morning. Spoke to two desk clerks about it. Was sitting in my vehicle when a young man came up to my truck... More

After a 7 hour drive and pulling in at 1am all we looked forward to was a comfortable clean bed. When we opened the door to the room there was a huge stain on the carpet which I can ignore. However, when I pulled the sheets back and I find a blood stain on the pillow a few questionable stains... More

I booked this hotel because it said it had a continental breakfast, but if they call that a continental breakfast, they better think again. All it consisted of was coffee and 2 kinds of pastries, no juice or other items. It certainly wasn't worth the price I paid. They didn't even have air conditioning in the lobby or the hallways,...
