I have travelled the United States and this hotel was the most horrible I've ever encountered. The rooms look nothing like the pictures on the website. Urine odors, stained carpets, white tubs are soiled black, toilets don't work, half if not all electrical outlets inoperative, I could go on for hours decribing the disgusting conditions of this establishment. Unprofessional behavior... More

You can always complain about a bit dirty here or there, or they could be a bit more friendly here or there, but when you get to your room, tired after a long day of work and drive, and you only wants to relax and sleep, you fold back the blanket and a cockroach is smiling at you - that's... More

Ultra budget properties vary greatly in quality. Most are decent, no frills rooms with basic amenities and are usually older motels that show some wear and tear. This one falls on the below average, but not offensive, end of the spectrum. With a little research, you can probably do better for your money. It has a nice little pool off... More

When we checked in at 5 pm, they asked us to wait for 15 min. However, we waited for 75 min before we got the door key. We booked a poolside-room, but they gave us another side-room. We didn't say anything about this. When we entered into the room, we found it was very hot, and the room temperature was... More

having paid 50 dollars a night.. i knew the place wouldn't be the Ritz, but i expected much more than what we got. the housekeeping people obviously did not change the sheets after the last person/people left. i guess they figure they save time and money by not changing the sheets 'cause the customers won't notice. well i did. it...

This motel was fine. Bit of a throw back to a decade gone by but it was clean and comfortable enough with a nice pool and courtyard in the centre. A/C and fridge plus numerous ice machines useful. Room smelled of smoke when none-smoking though. Our main problem was with some directions a guy on the front desk gave. We... More

Well this past weekend I stayed at this hotel. It was the worst hotel I've stayed in (and I've stayed in at least 20 hotels). First my reservation was for a smoking room. The person who checked me in claimed that it was not reserved for a smoking room. Luckily they had one smoking room left and were able to... More

If this is the only motel you can afford...save your money and go on your trip another time....We found a dead cockroach on our bed and the carpet wasn't vaccumed. It was also very noisy at night...you can hear people talking loudly and we heard sirens all night long. We woke up and were in the "lobby" at 9 and... More
