Firstly, we didn't stay here. We left after less than 5 minutes. Let me explain why. As we walked into the office, the manager(?) was obviously making 'happy time' with himself. He politely stopped as myself and my girlfriend entered. Seemed like a quiet day, so we let him off. $40 a night? Cash only. Fair enough. Not the cheapest...

We arrived here after a hard day riding. The first room was stinking of smoke, dusty, dirty, dated and the towels were used and still wet. I asked manager for a better room and said "his housekeeper must have smoked too much weed that day"???? He kindly gave us the VIP room, which has a hot tub in it (its...

Food crumbs and pubes in the bed, room smelled like rottent ashtray, one dirty towel, dirty floors, ac not working right, stains on walls. People arguing at all hours of the night. This place should be condemned. Worst of the worst. Probably got some...

Everything was dirty and filthy. The place stinks. We could hear every single sound from other rooms. Air conditionning down. Fortunatly no bedbugs but cigarettes holes. $40 only in cash. Unfriendly staff, impossible to connect the so-called free wi-fi. Probably with dealers and prostitutes... Try another motel on 66 road.
