My friend & I inquired about a room, the woman manager said there was only one available. She explained it had four beds in it because some of the workers stay in that particular room at times. Lol I thought I was getting a luxury room for $80 including tax. OMG!!!! The room was horrific! The drapes were barely hanging... More

We paid $35 per night.. but they stole my credit card information and bought $75 worth of food at Pluckers... which was right down the street. Weird people living there. As we walked up to the office the owners were making out at the front office.. in the open. Ghetto place. Smelled like cigarets. Everything was dirty. Avoid this place,... More

The place is as nasty as you can get! The beds are full of something that made our 4 yr. Old sick. The a.c. didn't work so the owner tried a cheap alternative and exchanged it with one from his other motel across the highway. Well he was to lazy himself to bring it to us so therefore my husband...

We thought with such a low price, how bad can this hotel be, right? It is scary bad and probably the worst hotel I have ever seen. We refused to stay and ended up down the street. Before you stay, check out the lock on the door. It is a simple push and a crook would be in the room... More

This has to be my worse experience in years-room very dirty but the worse part was finding big bed bugs all over the bed. in addition the women/manager had a real bad attitude! unless you like the feeling of bed bugs,I highly recommend staying away from this location.

A very good place to stay. Very friendly staff, clean rooms, nice clean blue pool. This place has really turned around.

Unfortunately,a few friends and I were forced to stay at this god awful hotel because it was during spring break and everything else was booked solid. At first, the key we were given to access the room did not work and we had to go get another one. Little did we know, a key was barely required to enter the... More

Hotel was really dirty, room looked like it hadn't been cleaned ever! Room was extremely small, cramped, and was not even worth the money paid! Bathtub and sink had nasty rings around them! Never stay here!

We were looking for a decent Motel last December 31, we looked the entrance and it looked normal. The room had a window broken. The inside was all dirty. It had no blanket on the bed and the weather was too cold. The roof was broken. We decided to sleep with all our clothes on because the terrible conditions of... More
