“disgusting!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011

This was the first place we found after a very long drive. didnt look so bad at night from the outside. lafy at the desk very nice......but the room had unattached electrical, mold on the bed spread, nasty something dripping in the bathroom from room above,sheets didnt look clean. my daughter made a bed on the desk instead of sleeping on bed, my other daughter choose the floor. the air conditioning didnt wrok and it was 100 degrees ! All 3 of my kids stayed up all night talkining sfraid to sleep. My husband and i could only doze now and then. When the kids finally drifted off in the early hours it was short lived because a roach that could have fit in a baby's sock ran accross them! that was it! we were out of there in 5 minutes! next time i would sleep in my car. My guess is the owner must pay off the inspectors. Dont stay here if your wise!

First of all my family and I did not stay at this dump by choice. We found our selves in a terrible snow storm on our way back home from Fort Worth and had to take shelter at the first inn we could find. Unfortunately with the snow so thick and the wind blowing so hard, it was the first place in sight. The room was unsightly. The carpet had numerous dark, mysterious stains as well as large spots all over the walls. The sink had some odd orange stain as well. One of the doors was loose from the entertainment center and there were scratches down the door panel and drooping curtains. There was only one set of dingy towels and the tub had stains as well. The bathroom door was tricky to close and the toilet clogged up. When flipping through channels on the TV I heard my sister scream. She had found the adult channel. The door frame was loose and we were forced to put a towel in the crack to prevent cold air from coming in. The air conditioner sporadically blew cold air and we slept on top of the sheets in terror of what we might find beneath them. Had there been another option we would have greatly taken it. Anything is better than this place. DO NOT STAY HERE UNDER ANY CONDITIONS!!!!

No price is worth this hellhole. Bed leg broken (rocking bed?), hole in wall, Roaches, Hookers in lot, Scum staying long term making noise, Highway noise loud b/c room sucks.
DIRTY room.
Couldn't sleep well b/c of safety, even though I was exhausted.
Got it online, arrived late so I was too tired to move to another place and would have lost room charged.
Owners refused refund.
RATE IT A ZERO!

The room was not clean, dangling, unconnected electrical wires, mold in the bathroom, unbearable smell of smoke in the nonsmoking room, roaches on the nightstand.

What a dump! My son refused to stay in the room and slept in the car. The filth is unbelievable. The only clean things in the room were the sheets. The few towels are stained rags. The floors are ghastly. The chair was so stained. There was dried BLOOD on the bathroom door. Beer can in wastebasket. Food remnants in desk and nightstand drawers. The front desk personnel does not care. They think the place is fine, but would they live like this? Would they allow their children to stay in the room or take a bath in the brown (originally white) bathtub with little or no hot water? I wouldn't! STAY AWAY!!!!!!!
