“dump!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

I have stayed in a lot of hotels in my 40 years. This is number 1 in the worst category. All the reviews that are listed are true. We seen it for ourself. Shady people hanging around, man outside was talking to the washing machine, carpet was filthy. Took my shoes off and was in the room for 10 minutes and they were black, pulled sheets back there was hair and pubic hair there, both beds. Half the lights didn't work. Do not stay here! Do not stay here!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

When driving in the lot you get the impression it will be a nice stay based on their office building is large and decorated nicely but when you get passed that and actually see the motel rooms I started to second guess this stay. When we parked and walking to our room the up keep outside was in need of repair and walking passed the pool even in the dark you can tell it was in need of repair even before seeing the sign for repair. Well opening the door to our room the light switch did not work and most of the other lights flickered when you turned them on. The tub had standing water in the bottom due to a leaking faucet. The deadbolt to our door was hard to lock. Pay a little extra to stay elsewhere
