“sleazy motel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

If you want to score drugs or meet up with hookers stay here, dirty, rundown, its basically a dive. I was afraid to sleep. Rooms are 50.00 a night that's the only plus. The main building is cleaner then back building. Air conditioning does not work,if you do your laundry do not leave it unattended! !! If you are a smoker or a truck driver they put you in the back building, this is where the magic happens. Hookers and pimps. Get room down road they are same price and clean. Also all motels on road have truck parking

Stayed May 2013

Best Night Inn located in Fife, WA is the WORST experience I've ever encountered. The Hispanic cleaning staff CLEANED US OUT! They stole brand new Christmas gifts totalling over $1000! They evicted us on false charges and proceeded to take our brand name gifts with them- Nike clothing, Volcum backpack, Coach purses, Old Navy winter jacket, etc. BEWARE there's a conspiracy going on there that attack on the not so poor clientele. STEALING is wrong; and they WRONGED us with their untrustworthy employees.

When I returned I told my wife about this place. I was propositioned twice by hookers staying in the building in the back and I watched a drug deal take place right in front of me. The place looks nice from the front but go to the back and it's dirty and disgusting. The heat and air conditioner made so much noise you couldn't watch TV with it running. The toilet wouldn't flush and the staff said they had no-one to fix it. They told me even though I was a smoker it was OK to smoke outside then they have you sign a paper saying you'll pay a $150.00 room cleaning charge if you smoke in the the room. I roll my own smokes so there was some tobacco on the floor and they charged me $150.00 and through me out after the first night even though they never stated it was a tobacco free room. The screens on the windows are either missing or bent as people in the other rooms smoke out of the windows ( you can stand outside and see them). I just wished I had my camera. What this place doesn't know is I took a piece of paper printed in yellow and faded to the point you could not read it stating that you would be charged the $150.00 cleaning fee if you smoked in the room and gave it to my attorney. When I called my attorney and he told me unless they had positive proof of me smoking in the room they couldn't charge me with the violation. My attorney called them and the same person that checked me into the room lied to my attorney and hung up on him. For anyone thinking about going to this place think it over, it is a dump, the staff as well as owner's are crooked and the place is dirty and it stinks. I am filing a lawsuit against the owner for making my stay so uncomfortable and charging me with a false violation. Watch out for what the night attendant says, he is a larger person with tattoo's on his arms, he 's a liar and will say anything to get you to stay there. Also they park Semi-trucks as well as tour buses in the parking lot hat run their engine's all night just outside your window, good luck sleeping with that going on.

I wouldnt wish this place on my worst enemy. I'm an easy to please person, but there's nothing pleasant about this place. The web site said its been remodeled but by the look of it, that was a bold face lie. Our room was so disgusting I made my husband take me to the store to get cleaning products so I could clean it before my 21 month old touched anything. The toilet had pubic hair on it and did not flush right. The shower was scary. The carpet looked like it had never been cleaned. It was very old and very stained. Our friends stayed in another room and they've dubbed this place "Crap night Inn"We stayed in the front part of the hotel and I was told the back part was worse! We stayed on the 3rd floor and the elevator was out of order. So we had to lug all of our stuff up the gross stairs. When we checked in, my husband had to ask where the room was and he acted like he was being put out. We saw a hooker and her pimp walking around. The breakfast was OK. The pool hasnt been used in years. People living there are questionable. What got me was the fact that the owner was driving an $80,000 car. Instead of driving that he should have put that money into repairing the units like he lied about he did. Dont stay here here. It may be cheap but soooooo not worth it. If it could rate it worse then terrible I would.

Room Tip: Dont stay here, very disgusting!

This place is a dump. How can they say 'newly remodeled'? This place has dirt and scum from the 80's. Do not stay here!! It is disgusting. The back building is for the truckers, hookers, and homeless. Our dog was so anxious, he just shook, and did not sleep at all.

My husband and I recently stayed there due to our power being out and it was too cold for our children. We were laying in the bed and notice something moving on the bedspread. IT WAS A BED BUG! Not just one, but four of them! they were big adult ones too. Then we set out to search the room a little more and noticed that there were some smaller ones with the clear bodies with the red bellies. They had just fed. We called and told the manager and he moved us into a different room. This one as far as we could tell was clean but when we returned home a few days later we noticed bites starting to appear. We talked to the general manager and he told us that even if we had the doctor note and pictures that we were liars that they had just cleaned the room and didnt find any bed bugs. I have pictures and testimony. DO NOT STAY HERE!

Room Tip: check for bed bugs.. and make sure you have a clean room
