Dude we found FOUR dead rats in our room! One was by the headboard. The other was stuck in the air conditioner and the other two was behind the darn refrigerator. That explains why the room smelled so bad and guess what? My girlfriend woke up about 3:00 a.m. screaming because two roaches had crawled on her so I lifted... More

Thank you for your review but Let me say, we never have any rats problem. Guest who review did not complain nor talked Manager regarding this issue. Guest did not provide his date of stay nor room number he stayed so there is no way to verify the facts. I am wondering, guest spend lots of time to check location... More

The jubilee was in Selma, so I decided to be there. I shouldn't have chosen this hotel. I don't know which is worst: the owner or the room. The homeless looking Indian female owner,Judy,is the rudest most bullying person that I have ever had contact with when I was went to Selma.Don't be fooled; She isn't nice. I had to... More

This property is in need of repair. The room was not clean, especially the bathroom, and the water did not properly drain when taking a shower. Would usually enjoy the strong shower pressure but the tub filled up with water so quickly, we were reduced to one minute showers. The lighting was very dim (had to step outside in the... More

This is an older property that is in need of some upgrades. It appears that the owners are in the process of doing just that as time and money allows. The owners appear to be onsite and they were very kind and helpful. Unfortunately, the room was in need of a more thorough cleaning in regards to the bathroom floors,... More
