I read a lot of this place and some times find out that negative comments about a place can be a bit over blown. so I stayed here on night to grab a cheap rate. Here is a fair of this place. First the good stuff. The locations is great right off I-40, McDonalds next door and pilot truck stop for gas. very friendly helpful staff and quick check in and great prices around 40 bucks. They have a bar on site called CP's sports bar. its small and friendly with TV's. The local regulars are nice and the truck drivers are nice as well as bar staff. good prices. had fun.
now the bad. front desk told me it was my lucky night because I was getting upgraded to the best room they have. How exciting. well as I parked the car in front of the room the screen on the window was pulled down as if someone had tried to break into the room. but looking around I noticed most likely this place gets no maintenance and upkeep. That was a worrisome sign. walked into the inside hallway to my room and the hallway was covered .in trash. I mean lots of trash. trash cans were over flowing appeared to have been emptied a few weeks ago. Looked like it had not been picked up in a long time. carpet looked un-vacuumed for a long time also. then the upgraded room. oh my god. nice big room and nice layout but that's where anything positive stopped. well no bugs so one more positive thing. the carpet had not been vacuumed since I would guess 1945 and that's being kind. the bathroom had not cleaned. Even found a used wash cloth in the bathtub. looked like some snot and blood on the sink counter. and the toilet (and you can tell real easy) has not seen a toilet brush for cleaning since it was installed. no mold, no bugs, but just long term unclean. I would imagine by looking this place is used by people working in the energy field and they stay here long term for cheap rates. It really looked more like this hotel just does not do maintenance nor does it clean in a very long time. I rarely post a review and rarely do negative ones but people need to be aware this place lacks cleaning. I travel a lot and always looking for cheap rates to save money but have never stayed a place this filthy. NEVER this bad anywhere I have ever stayed. cleaning is so simple to do there is no excuse for this.
