Check in was smooth with very friendly front desk attendant. We got our room, it was on the 2nd floor and we had to lug all our stuff up a gross stairwell to the 2nd floor. We entered our room and it smelled of someone trying to mask horrible body odour smell with incense. My kids and I could not tolerate it, we called the front desk and told them about the smell. They sent someone and got us into a different room ,which smelled less than the first room. Im standing in it right now wondering if it is worth the extra cash to leave or not, as im on a budget, but this room is still gross. Sticky spots on the carpet, old nasty comforters, and flies in the room, not to mention, our rooms door doesnt open and close properly. For $100 a night, i expect something more than a homeless shelter. I dont know if i can get comfortable in this room. I will never stay here again, i'd sooner sleep in my truck. I think im checking out right now. This motel is nasty.
