    The staff is rude, the rooms are old and smelly. Not up to fire code either. The bathtub was full of mold and the bed very lumpy and squeeky. Booked through expedia, got a refund it was so bad. No smoke detector or emergency exit...More

    We didn't book a motel in advance and ended up in this motel. $110 including tax for this room is far overpriced. As others suggested,the owners are rather scary and very unhelpful. We stayed in the comfort inn two days later-lovely room and breakfast plus...More
