“Frightening”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

Horrible. Reminded me of the motel in the movie Vacancy. The closet is a hole in the wall with a rusted bar
Room was freezing. Holes patched on the wooden doors with patches of white paint slapped on to cover. TV did not work.bcoffee was supposed to be in the lobby at 7am & still wasn't there @ 8:15. Shady & very scary. 3 locks on the door bit not secure & door very hard to open. That's when the movie Vacancy hit me. Only 50 bucks for a room but would rather pay 100 to feel safe & clean. Furniture looked like it came from the road side.

Dirty rooms,rude reception,hookers hanging around at night. Door handle on bathroom doors broken,mirrored ceiling over beds for hooker rooms. One of the worst places i have ever stayed in. Unsafe. Reception will send hooker to room if asked cause reception asked us if we wanted one. Will be turning in to princeton police department. Do not stay here unless you want your stuff stolen. If you stay here do not let cleaning lady in room or your stuff will walk away.

Went here only because no rooms available any where else.
Filthy place. Stinks like u wouldn't believe. A lot of people lingering in the parking lot. Would not feel safe staying. I was given a refund (minus a $10 credit card process fee) after informing the owner of the unacceptable conditions.

This place had a great rate and reception service was fine.

But the room was so dirty - I was happy to leave the next morning. When I took my shoes off and stood next to the bed my socks started soaking up 'moisture' from the wet carpet - I hate to think what that was. I told the front counter staff - he said it was from the Air conditioner but the AC was nowhere near the puddle. The bathroom was filthy - I didn't want to put anything down and took as little out of my suitcase as possible.

I would have rather paid a few dollars more to stay somewhere else, although I have stayed in even cheaper places that are immaculately clean. This is definitely a motel to avoid.
