Nasty hotel, dirty sheets, filthy chairs that were broken and stained. Fingernail clipping on floor, mold in bathroom. Do not stop here! Never saw a place this dirty before. Electrical socket broken with mattress right up against it. Shady people hanging around .

I was traveling in the area, and I did not want to spend that much money on one night. My expectations were not that high, but the staff was really friendly, and the room was terrific. The night was peaceful, the beds were comfy. I had a nice, free breakfast at this motel, and enjoyed their service as well. This... More

I had to work out of town and I was driving by and spotted the Relax Inn. It didn't look so bad from the outside plus it was right off Memorial Drive, which is near the mall (don't let the location fool you). It was $50 plus tax for the night. I didn't have high expectations (ex: swimming pool, Internet,... More

Get out and dont get near it. It is filthy, out dated and evidence of bugs.We stayed here a few yr ago but since our relatives who live in Lancaster told us it was a well known for drug activity and had some Meth labs and purse thieves busted there, we opted to stay at the Holiday Express. We peaked... More

Maid service very spotty. They might clean your room and might not. Rooms need painted (paint doesn't cost that much guys)....looker like it hadn't been painted in years. Maids might want to look at the walls in the bathroom cause there are boogers stuck to the walls....yuck. last thing there needs to be some sort of light by the beds.... More

Bed bugs and roaches. We had change rooms 3 times because of the lack of cleanliness. We have traveled around the world and have NEVER seen a hotel like this. Do NOT stay here!!! We got stuck here due to last minute travel plans.
