I did not find it as horrible as the previous reviews but they did scare me a little and I was nervous because we paid for it before we read the reviews. The staff were pleasant, but the room needed some upkeep and the breakfast wasn't very desireable. Very dull lighting in the room but the front lobby was bright. For the price and just to sleep it was worth the value but I wouldn't stay here again considering there was america's Best value inn across the street for the same price and it was sooooo much better.

I think and feel all the other reviews says it all. My experience was the same as Jdlab 1. We just did not find the needles and other drug stuff like in the other reviews. We tried to stay but got up at 3 and were out of there the fastest we could go. Just a horrible place to stay.

This Hotel was very dirty. The bathroom had mold growing in the bathtub. The sheets were a dirty yellow. It was a non smoking room but smelled of smoke. The curtians were dirty. The window need cleaning. This was the worst hotel I have been at in a long time. I know it was 59.00 but, it was not sleepable. Needless to say I tried to stay the night but ended up leaving at 3am. Couldn't take it much longer.

We booked this motel for my sons wedding along with 11 other familys. Problems from the start, argued to get a refrigerator. Went down hill from there, some in our party experienced filthy rooms including food and garbage on the floor and then found drug items IN their bed...At that point they called the manager who called the police, at 2:00am most of the families packed up and left. They were verbally abused as they were leaving by the so called manager. Some got their money back, I am still waiting to hear....Don't even bother staying here...there are plenty of other places around!

This place was awful. The lady who checked us in during the afternoon was pleasant, however that was the end of the highlights. Seedy clientèle, rude manager (one member of our party reserved a king bed and was given 2 double beds with the response "there's nothing I can do about it lady!", and to top it off (and this is no fish story folks) my cousin found a hypodermic needle and burnt spoon in his bed upon returning to his room. We (20+ of us) were forced to split in the middle of the night for fear of the children in the party getting stuck with god knows what and had to find alternate accommodations at 2am. Spend the extra $30 and stay at the Hampton Inn or similar. PLEASE!!

The room smelled stale and the carpet had stains on it - (milk? worse? ) and had not been vacuumed.

The baseboard heater in the bathroom was encrusted with a layer grime and dirt on top of it.

We were tired and needed to sleep, so we didn't leave. But we got out of there as fast as we could the next morning.

Staff was nice, but that didn't make up for the uncleanliness of the room.

The room of the floor seemed never to be cleaned. Dirt and hair everywhere! The floor even wasnt even. Bathroom also terrible: everthing old, broken and dirty. Noticed some bugs. Complained about this all and requested a new room. Got a new room, however this also wasn't clean. "It was somewhat less dirty." Would advise not to go there anytime. The price of 80 dollars was way toooo much for this crap. Looked more like 15 bugs worth.
