1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

The $45 a night room ended up being $65 when the added taxes and a not disclosed $10 fee for my 4 lb. Yorkie. No decent restaurants. Stinky room. Go to Motel 6 down the road.

Me and my family needed a place to stay temporarily, and found that this place had some of the lowest rates around here, so we booked. We came in and saw a somewhat decent room, but the tub was dirty, the door to the room itself wouldn't open properly, it scraped the carpet and splintered. The floors were creaky, and you could hear every time someone moved around above, below, or beside us. Parking lot was in poor shape, had people regularly running around picking up anything they could and picking out of dumpsters, and I was also bit by what I think was a bedbug, but don't know just yet, but it itches furiously! Breakfast was poor as well, old looking honey-buns, bagels, some stuff to go on it, coffee, milk, and Sunny-D. Only upside is that housekeeping was sort of nice.

Do not stay here, only as a last resort!

My father booked two nights and had a terrible experience. He tried to cancel the second night and get the money back for a unused night before checkout and they said no way. It was their policy! Unbelievably awful place. There were bed bugs, smoke smell in a non-smoking room, spider or roach scurry across floor, one channel on the TV out of 102!?, light bulb out over bed, ambulance and commotion outside door in the middle of the night, hair on pillows and a feeling of dirty sheets. Please don't make the same mistake he did!

Watch for hidden charges like "commission fee" that are added to your base price. My $44.50/night booked rate ended up being $61.50/night. Watch for broken items in "recently renovated" room. Our bathroom door would not close all the way, nor would the nightstand drawer open all the way - both broken/warped. Watch for the old frozen and refrozen honey buns - your only choice for breakfast. Watch for lack of amenities - not even a blanket on the stained, sagging bed. Watch for the housekeeping department who did not even make up the room for the second day/night.

And - watch for the uncaring front desk/management folks who do not make any attempt to rectify the situation.
