Well, I will say that the Owners were nice enough people to allow me to keep my pets with me..But their Motel is in need of dier renovations, and in desperate need of cleaning.
Some of the problems I had with the property I took pictures of, but I was not able to take pictures of everything, before my battery ran out in my camera.. would have went for batteries, but this place is nowhere near walking distance from any restraunt or convienance store..

The Bathroom was horrible..it was dirty, had what appeared to be blood stains on the shower curtain, mold under the knobs in the tub and all on the tile walls.. The vent in the ceiling and and the heating lamp in the bathroom were not installed correctly and looked as if they could fall out at any given time, and even the switch plate just outside the bathroom was horrific.. There was no toliet paper holder, the paper sat on the back of the toliet... even the ice bucket that sits on the counter looks as if it is 100 years old with stains and what appears to be black grease in it.
There is no remote for the tv and reception is fuzzy, the air conditioner knob is broken off so you cant control the temp, so it feels as if you only have a fan going..
The bed which sits on a box frame kept falling off the frame everytime you sat on it, The carpet is stained beyond reason, the ironing board they advertise is a full size rusted nasty board that leans up against the wall, and there is a rack on the wall for an iron, which too is nasty looking,... no iron there, but didnt ask if the desk had one, I was not in need of it. There were two holes on two different walls, that looks as if wiring was rigged.. the locks on the doors were a joke, it had the automatic deadbold of course, that you use a key card for, but then you have just a regular chain, and the door frame was metal attached to sheetrock.. next to plate glass. Didnt feel real secure with that

It was just all around not a sanitary place.. I will say that the sheets and the towels were sparkling white and the folks were nice, but I was not in a position to up and leave for cleaner accomodations, due to we were evacuated and everything within miles was full...

  • Liked — they allowed me to have my pets with me
  • Disliked — everything else
