“Drug Dealers Knocking on the Door”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

The motel has a nice retro feel during the day and they project movies and shows on the large white wall during the evening. I was looking for a place to stay for a show that was playing at a local club that weekend. When we checked in, we learned that they controlled the air conditioner from the front office (so they could, and I quote, "Sweat people out of they hadn't paid."). The room had ants in the bathroom, cracked floor tiles in the shower (easy to cut your feet on!) and strange brown stains/smears on the wall. Then, the parking lot filled with many loitering people at night and we got a knock on the door from a drug dealer--twice (two different ones). Then the hotel closes the parking lot gates. It was pretty scary. We slept above the sheets fully clothed. We got a refund for second day and stayed at Hotel Bianco down the street. Hotel Bianco is $30 more a night ($70 as opposed to $40), but it was worth the extra money. This is not the best part of town, and we knew that. We like the club Churchills. But this is a way scary place.

Room Tip: Ask to see room before-hand and get room close to main office
