The room was nice enough, clean and comfortable, and the price was affordable. But the rif-raf that LIVE there were very disconcerting. There were several people sitting at the tables drinking when we checked in. I was afraid to walk anywhere by myself. We were planning to swim in the pool that evening but there were a dozen people out there playing and carrying on when we returned after dinner. We heard later there was a couple "doing it" in the pool. I'm sure glad we stayed out! The residents came to life in the middle of the night talking and laughing and walking back and forth in front of our room. Even had a guitar and playing music in the middle of the night! Two men were discussing how they would rob and kill somebody for $1000. We got out of there in the morning, and are still waiting for our refund they said would be credited that day.
The exterior of the building was dirty and run down. The ice machines don't work, the fence is falling down, the sidewalks are filthy. Don't let the pictures of the pool fool you! Not the beautiful one you see in the picture! I don't know where those palm trees were, I didn't see any.
The manager kept asking why we were leaving early. When we admitted it was due to the shady residents he allows to stay in his motel, he said he "tries to keep it under control." I'd say he's not doing too well there.
