I didnt feel safe here and it was a dump. Upon entering the location I knew I had been had. It's surrounded by bail bonds locations all around, if that gives you any indication of the area. No one can deny the area is drug invested and travelers should be mindful of safety.
I got in the room and was road weary and just ready to be settled in for the night. The place smelled dirty. Carpets looked old and nasty. Sheets were stained. My buddy wanted to keep trucking but I said no. We both slept in our clothes on top of the bed with our pistols by our bedside. This place is not at all as presented. Travelers beware. Im not scared of much but this place had me on high alert all night.
My truck was still in the parking lot when I woke up and I wasn't kidnapped by meth heads. On a positive note, they do offer complimentary breakfast and hepatitis c to all visitors who stop.lol
If id have had my kid with me, I wouldn't have stayed here at all. No question about that.
