This was not a great motel. It wouldn't have been worth it for $20. It wasn't really dirty and the fridge worked. The bathrooms seemed clean and so did the sheets and towels. But when we got there (we had adjoining rooms) there were many stink bugs all over the rooms. And they kept coming until about 2am when we... More

This hovel was by far one of the WORST places I've experienced in all my 30 years of traveling. The room smelled upon entry and the carpet was filthy and littered with garbage (cheerios under the beds, lint everywhere), food was left in the refrigerator, the bathroom was filled with horrors (stained towels, repainted bathtub), and the hair dryer did...

After leaving another hotel in the area due to lack of access to a handicapped room, this hotel was close to the first one. I'm uncertain as to how this property passed any building inspection, the heater alternated between extreme hot air and cold air -uneven tiles in the bathroom, dirt in the corners of the room, bugs in one...

This may be the cheapest motel anywhere in the area, but you will not like staying here no matter how cheap they are. floors were not vacuumed, condoms and other trash not picked up from behind night stand and beds, someone had spewed soda all over the walls and it was not cleaned up. When we went to turn on... More

The room was filthy. The tub had been painted and the paint was peeling. The carpet was disgusting. And, to top the experience all off...BEDBUGS!!! I came away with itchy welts all over my body. The place should be shut down. I'm contemplating contacting the health department. The maid wouldn't even come in the room. They never even made the... More

This is the nastiest hotel/motel room I have ever seenand slept in my whole life. 54 years. Had it not been dark-thirty when we checked in, and I was extremely over-tired, I would have demanded a refund and moved on down the highway. Unfortunately, traveling thru this part of country on a Friday night stay leaves few decent rooms at... More

We stayed in this hotel because my in-laws booked it for us. To begin with the price was $20 higher than the price the hotel advertises and it just got worse when we went into the room. The carpet and bathroom floor were both wet and the room stunk. The shower-head was leaking. We had to turn on the heat... More

This was one of the worst hotels I´ve ever stayed in. Every YMCA or youthhostel is cleaner! It´s shabby, everything is worn down, it´s dirty - even the bed clothes are. You wouldn´t believe it´s a Ramada. But people must know it because most of the guests we´ve seen there were as shabby as the place. It hasn´t the standard... More

This is one of those places that charges much more than the place is worth (we paid $79 after a discount for a room), and then rubs it in by giving you terrible service. The breakfast consists of bad danishes and some mock juice. The rooms are dingy, with cracks and damage appearing everywhere. You might think that it's worth... More

This place is the worst place I have ever stayed. Ever. The place was filthy. The building ramshackle. I quarantined my bag in case I brought back bedbugs. The door didn't want to close. At 3 AM someone next door decided to come in and turn on loud rap music. As I was fairly sure that it was a drug... More
