“Trashy much?!?!?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

this place is beyond a disaster, the cleanliness of this place is utterly unacceptable. I found a raman noodle wrappers under the bed along with cigarette buts, the bathroom had papers all over the floor. And not to mention the heat doesn't work at all! The bed isn't to bad but the overall cleanliness is a -0!!! No wonder it was so cheap. So disgusted!! I think next time I'll stick to the hawkeye or motel 6. This isn't a motel it's a ram down dope house. I guess the only good thing about staying here is a pillow to lay your head on. :-X.

Sincerely, very mad gal
