We stayed here for an interview on the following morning. As it was only a 1 night stay. The rooms were very dated with semi-functional air conditioning. There was a dehumidifier that continually warmed the room. Bathtub was not clean and there was either a rodent or roach problem evident from the trap behind a table (pictured). Bed was very...

So if I cancel the reservation I...

Smelly hallways from dirty carpet and cigarette smoke; smoke smell hidden in "non-smoking" room by too much air freshener; roaches and dingy bathtube in bathroom; horrible pillows; no housekeeping after 11:30 am; rude manager... old dirty worn out motel in disguise. Budget rates do not excuse lack of cleanliness or rudeness. Go to another one.

Was in town for one night, my husband and I were too tired to drive back home! Impressed with the wood floors, size or the room, as well as cleanliness!
