This hotel is honestly the most shady place I've stayed at in my entire life- and I've stayed at some major dives.
It all started when the innkeeper wouldn't tell me why his rates weren't on the Choice Hotels website (that's because he lost his franchise rights, and left the signs up anyway). He took us to our NONSMOKING room that reeked of smoke and was filthy. We finally got a 2nd floor room (we requested 1st floor) and settled in.
The AC didn't work, there was black mold all over the shower, the bed was covered in questionable white stains, and none of the electronics or lights worked. It was the night before my wedding and I was miserable.
The next morning I went to check out, and the owner (who sleeps in a room off the lobby) told me that if I don't eat more salads that I'm going to "catch the diabetes and die". He pulled out a ratty old paper to "prove" he was a nutritional expert. He then proceeded to scream at me and then wash his armpits in the sink near the breakfast nook (where there was no breakfast).
My husband was packing the car and spilled an iced tea, and was using a towel from the room to wipe up. The hotel owner ran into the parking lot WITH NO SHIRT ON and began screaming at my husband for "stealing the towels" and for not using them "for their proper and gentlemanly purpose".
The owner tried to charge us $50 for the towels we "stole" (they were all left in the room) which my credit card company reversed.
Honestly, I'd sleep in my car before staying here again. You've been warned
