“Oh it's an experience alright...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

You know that TV show "Locked Up Abroad"? That's what you're getting yourself into, for about $100 a night. The sheets were dirty, the bathroom looked like a prison cell, the owners were sleeping in the office in the same room as the "free breakfast" which was stale cereal. Sure i didn't expect much out of the "economy" inn, but for $100 a night I expected SOMETHING. Our room also had random wires coming out of the walls, paint peeling off and cigarette ashes on the nightstands.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

we had reservations to stay here, internet pics are VERY deceiving. when we pulled up, it is dumpy, run down, and a van seat was out front for seating...went inside to front desk, it smelled, was filthy, and creepy, his reservation book was a spiral notebook. I asked to see our room before we booked it. The man lead us down to our room, when he opened the door, we were appaulled. no bedspreads. dirty OLD tile floors, fridge and microwave looked like a garage sale find. the kicker was the bathroom...looked like an old closet, renovated in to a bathroom. stained dirty tile floors, DISGUSTING. old square porcelien tub from 50's?? we couldnt even think of having our children sleep in there. this is the true definition of DIVE motel. we did not book...went down the road to super 8.

Room Tip: do not stay in this dump!!!
