It was too small for a king size bed leaving us hardly any room to navigate around. There was no closet or even a bar to hang clothes. There was a small kitchen area... More

I stayed and was almost eaten alive by bed bugs - Cost $118 doctor visit and ruined my vacation- reported to local health authority but received a reply back that since bedbugs are not known to transmit diseases and there are no public health laws addressing requirements for their control and removal they would not investigate or require action.

The towels had black stuff on them, the bed had cum stains, bugs everywhere, imcluding dead and stuck to the wall. We were afraid to not wear shoes in the room. The bathroom door was a sliding door that wouldn't close all the way.

Not worth it.For $77 a night the bed sheets and blankets had hair all over them and I got bites all over my arms and back.I would not recommend this hotel for anyone especially if you have children we will definitely never be back to this motel again.

The staff was kind & friendly The room décors were out of date The bathroom was a little dirty still The bedding was clean but the smell of the cigarette Smoke on the walls was pretty bad. If you are looking for a cheap room, it's not too bad. It could be worst.
