One bed didn't have a bedspread & the blankets were cheap & worn out. The room smelled musty/smoky. At first we didn't notice what appeared to be carpet beetles, as they were not visible during daylight. At night, however, they came out by the hundreds. The a/c was very noisy & barely adequate. When we complained, they moved us to... More

One of the most discusting motels I have been to. Floors are dirty, food crumbs behind tables, doors broken, fridge is hot and doesn't work, light bulbs burnt out, pubic hairs on sheets, smashed dead bugs on walls and door, spider webs and sheet rock dust along wall/carpet, shower full of soap scum, horrible smell sex toys from previous customer...

I... More

driving south from BC to Arizona, the sun had set, the next town was Reno, we were tired from 10 hours on the road, and this was the first motel on the 395 Business route south from exit 72 on IS395. Probably should have kept going though. We rang the door bell and waited about 5 minutes for the manager... More

Clearly we should have read the reviews before travelling. But we had just stayed in a beautiful Super 8 in Port Angeles that is quite the opposite so we thought it would at least be similar.

I checked into this room. When I went to sleep I felt something crawling!! Bed bugs were crawling out if everywhere. I took a picture and a video and showed the front desk and his response was "leave you are only trying to cause trouble".Not only are they unprofessional they have an infestation!!!

There was only a box tv that didn't work and no tissues anywhere. My food I brought with spoiled due to no way to keep... More
