“Bed bugs!!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

The room was dark, so can't really see the detail of cleanness, guess that's there strategy.
The guests are very ghetto.
With this price $89/night (+tax), I guess this is what should be expected.
But the surprise is bed bugs!
All of us waking up with new bites overnight. We always have sun screen and bug repellent on, until after shower which is right before bed. I have about 20 bites!
I went to the front and told the lady, and she claimed that she never had any complains about bed bugs. NOW YOU DO!
That's the only thing that we didn't expect and the only thing that we really don't like about this place. But this is a BIG issue!

We checked in and of course we didn’t see the room before hand and they had a no refund policy. They charged us 139/per night and the room smelled of mold and the bathtub was about to fall into the floor the wall paper was peeling off the walls and under it was putrid mold!!!! We complained and they wouldn’t give us another room because they were booked and wouldn’t refund our money! TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE WE DECIDED TO SLEEP THERE AND WENT TO PUT OUR OWN SHEETS ON THE BED AND FOUND AN OPEN CONDOM WRAPPER UNDER THE SHEETS! THIS IS AN AWFUL PLACE TO STAY AND WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO MY WORST ENEMY!!!

Room Tip: Do not stay there you will get sick from the mold!

Quick check-in. Beware though, they don't take American Express, you'll need another card or cash. Room was typical of this kind of motel. Two full sized beds, microwave, cube fridge, hair dryer, iron & board. Bed was OK. Cleanliness was pretty good until the last morning (stayed 3 nights). I was brushing my teeth and this beetle fell from above somewhere and went behind the ice bucket. I finished brushing & went to retrieve the bug and found a big dangly feather earring. Not mine. That means the counter wasn't completely wiped down for who knows how long??? They also have locals who live here. Not the most savory bunch but I didn't have any problems with them. Nice pool area. Would be better with more pool furniture that isn't broken.

When booking our hotel room, we were told the only room left was a "smoking" room. We took it anyways thinking we could buy febreeze and possibly freshen the smoke smell out. Boy were we wrong. Not only did it smell like old cigarettes, but also moldy! I felt I couldn't breathe while in that room. I also found ants on the floor in the bathroom, and a centipede in front of the tub!!!! YUCK! For the quality, pricing should definitely be lowered! Also, the pool was green and murky with a broken filter and it looked like oil was floating on the top.

We needed a place to stay and that was the cheapest around. There was lettuce on the bathroom floor, a dead mosquito stuck on one of the "clean" towels (also a black hair on a face towel). Could not get any sleep between the air conditioner which was EXTREMELY loud and the toilet that was flushing itself ALLLL night long. There was mold along the bathroom celing and the room. We had ants around the sink area. Stains on my pillowcase and the sheets. I WOULD NEVER stay there again!

Well, again, you get what you pay for!! We were not looking to spend much money on a room because we were there to see a concert that night! The place is like re-living the 70's with dustmite filled rugs and pubic hairs on the bathroom sink and tub!! Skeeve!! Yuck, but we stayed on an hour and hit the road and until it was time to go to BED! SPeaking of beds, it was extremely bouncy!!!!!! That night, there were at least 4 police cars nearby probably doing a drug bust!!!

The pool wasn't bad, it cooled us off, but the scenery of rocks and gravel wasn't nice to look at while swimming!! They really need to update this 1970's fugly place!!! We had a friend and his girlfriend come up and join us. They made their own reservation but the young girl had booked them for Monday when it was suposed to be Sat! Duh!!!

We will never ever in our lifetime stay here again. Do spend the extra money for something nicer. Not sure why they call it Castle Dawn!! There is nothing castle like about it.
