“Not merely bad but frightening”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Guys, this is the don't-tell motel of legend. Avoid like the plague you will get if you stay here. Filthy accommodations with not just furniture bolted to the floor but remote controls and telephones bolted to the furniture; dude demands payment upfront from a bulletproof booth with a little credit card machine you'd give the side-eye if it was at a mom & pop hardware store, and seriously: not clean. Found a cache of some cretin's pistachio shells in my cheap bedside table. People coming in and out at all hours to do you can probably guess what.

But at least the ambiance is nice.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel.
