This Motel has bedbugs! After I found the bugs I immediately went to the office to speak to the owners. They apologized and told me they had bought used mattresses from another motel in town that closed. Disgusting!!! I did receive a full refund, but so very disgusting!

Check In was very easy but Check Out was very difficult. The back of the room door said to "leave the key in the room". The check out time is at 11:00AM but they kept trying to open the door and get in an hour early. I prefer dropping the key off and I think that they can just wait... More

We went to the casino so wasnt there that much and needed some rest before heading on. Everything was junk, the bed,, the furniture and, especially the bathroom!! I pulled... More

Understand this...if you are going to stay at a budget motel it's not going to be exceptionally nice. However, this place wasn't that bad for the money $47 including tax. Sure, some lightbulbs are missing, the shower drained real slowly and there were a couple noticeable stains on the sheets (however they were clean and smelled laundered) but the mattress... More

$60 a night. Worst night ever. One light in whole room. Blood down base of sink, dusty beyond belief,mold in shower.Run down is not the word for this disgusting place. Not picky but no one deserves to rest in nasty place like this.

Sometimes when traveling you just want a place to sleep and the nicer amenities are just not a priority. This is one of those places. The motel is in a convenient location on I-35 at the north end of Gainesville. It is an old facility but the room had been upgraded and was clean and functional. The furnishings were sparse... More

Thought I'd try to save a few bucks at a different motel in Gainesville, TX which is near Winstar World Casino. Bad idea. This old motel on east side of 35 looked ok outside but inside....Nasty dirty carpet with many stains/odors of cigarette smoke; half the light fixtures didnt work or had burned out bulbs, just a deadlock on the...
