Cheap, but ROACHES. Both alive and dead. Woman at front desk seemed nice enough, and it's only $45 for tax included, but disgusting. In just a ~12 hour stay, we saw several cockroaches in the main room and a couple of dead ones in the bathroom. Ick.

This place is terrible. I booked a room for a night. The place is filthy. The bed is stained, and I question whether the sheets were changed after finding a "hair" before I retired for the night. The water coming from the tap of the sink (which is in the main room) is brown. I could not get the TV... More

I booked a room for 2 nights at this horrible nasty dirty motel. The moment I walked in, the smell of urine was over powering. The air conditioner had dirt and dust clotted to the filter and it made the worst noises all night long. The walls had hundreds of spots that looked like someone blew their nose right on... More

Crusty night stand, stains, worn look, not vacuumed and not clean. Outlet looked like there was a fire. Had to check for bugs it was so nasty. Yes it was only 40 dollars for two, but use your money somewhere else. It seems like a great place to take a hooker, but that's really it.

Very inexpensive hotel but good beds, clean clean rooms....no smell at all, which one sometimes expects in a lower budget motel. Staff was excellent and very accommodating. I would recommend this stay.

I saw reviews for this hotel and couldn't believe all the good reviews, but the price looked right and I was just there to sleep on my road trip, so I booked a room. The family that runs this place is so sweet and accommodating. They gave me a room on the end. The room was large and the bathroom... More

We booked this room as a stop over on the way to Vegas. I had called ahead for a late arrival and was guaranteed this would not be an issue. They were true to their word: when arriving at 3:30 am not only was check in a breeze he upgraded our room and allowed us a late check out. The... More

My stay was very bad. I couldn't sleep at all whole night. There were people outside drinking and fighting. I felt very unsafe. Room was very small and dirty bed. I should have asked for refund. The staff wasn't proffessional. Wi-Fi signal was breaking, hard to use computer.

If you drive in here and look at the room doors -- peeling paint and dirt -- you'll leave immediately, disgusted. Luckily, I trusted the reviews here on TripAdvisor. This place is a great value! The woman who checked me in was very helpful and friendly. After I checked in, my room phone didn't seem to work; the man who... More

I had a great experience, picking this place off the Main Street motel strip without a reservation. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. The room was large, with a nice bathroom. It was a cool night, but there is a small pool and remote-controlled airconditioning (of course) for the warmer months. The price was extremely reasonable. One small issue... More
