They advertise that all pets are welcome, but when we got there would not allow our cats unless we paid $1,000.00 deposit. They said that cats are not pets. They also would only give us a partial refund even though we didn't use the room at all. We left and got another motel nearby.

Cock roaches in room, very unclean... nasty stuff on walls. . No BREAKFAST. Owner says there is but its false. Very cheap for terrible rooms. Disgusting chairs n floors. Definitely need to retrain housekeepers. Do NOT stay no matter how cheap it is.. hotel should be closed down. Had to give it 1 star I give negative -5.

Hey if you're on a fixed income, this one is a great choice. The room was very clean and the bed was the best one on my trip from Springfield MO to San Marcos, CA. Via Mt. Rushmore. The manager, I forgot his name, was fantastic. Yes I will stay there again when in the area.

This was the worst place I have ever stayed. The walls are so thin that I could hear the people on both sides of me talking and could actually make out the conversation. Stained carpets, furniture and writing on the back of the bathroom door where children must have been kept while the adults did their thing.

Nothing that he said about the room was true. No refrigerator, no microwave and NO PHONE. Dirty, dirty, dirty. The best part, previous occupants of the room still had keys and were just coming in and out of the room. When we complained to Vin, the owner, he said it wasn't a big deal. The guy used to stay there...

I paid for this room in full before I saw it which I have never done as we pay when we check out every place I've ever stayed, but they have an old-school system and use paper forms so I didn't ask. I have stayed in some less than perfect m/hotels but this is by far the worst I've ever...

Let me preface this review by telling you two things about myself - I avoid chains at all costs (restaurants, motels, whatever), and I HATE to pay more than $50 for a hotel room! I'm SLEEPING. I usually check in late and check out early! I don't care about breakfast buffets because I want to check out a local restaurant!...
