Stained sheets that may or may not have been washed recently, didn't look like it judging from the stains. Cigarette burns in the quilt, also stained. All furniture, including the two chairs in the room, looked like they had been picked up off the side of the road. Tub was cracked and looked to be original from a long time... More

Stay here if you enjoy the following: Roaches, meth addicts, police action all night long, and more. If I could give no stars I would. Also- when I told the manager this, he laughed it off and asked me if I wanted a complimentary coffee. Ummmm- no, but I would like my $60.00 back. Gross!

First off, the manager and staff are great here, excellent customer service. The rate was matched well at 45 per night, and they acknowledged my CDL discount. The hotel, try as they might, needs serious upgrades and renovations. Its looks like its getting rundown. The heat/AC unit on one of the rooms had great difficulty getting up to temp. Now... More
