If I could give a 0, I would! We were not expecting to be staying at “The Ritz” but I did not expect a flea bag motel. First of all to charge $100 as a deposit is rediculous, there was not anything worth over $25.00 in the room! The towels looked like they had been used as old

This place was terrible. The beds were hard. It was outdated. The shower had no pressure. I would not stay here ever again! The pillows were flat. We had 3 people in the room and put that when booking it and they only gave us 2 towels. And it’s too far from downtown.
