Mt. Ida Motel
Ranked #7 of 7 Hotels in Mount Ida
Reviewed July 18, 2011

This motel is the epitome of nasty. A lot of sketchy people live in this motel because it's so cheap, and it is notorious for drug busts. At one time, someone had a chicken living in one of the rooms with them, no joke.

Website states $22 per night single room. When I arrived, the office had a sign stating "Go To Room 20". Room 20 had a sign etched in crayon stating "Go To Room 18". Went to Room 18 and obviously interupted some "personal" event between night manager and boyfriend. When they opened the door, the smell about knocked me down ! I reluctantly asked about a room and was told $55 per night !!! When I mentioned the website, she said "I don't know nuttin bout that cause it's $55 from me". It was late and I asked if I could see a room anyway but the manager said all the rooms looked like hers. I don't live higher class but I would not house my dogs in the room she showed me (hers). There were cars in various states of repair and junk/ equipment scattered around the parking areas and was CREEPY, VERY CREEPY to say the least.

It smelled horrible, there were bugs in the mattress, and the innkeepers were very creepy.
Unfortunately i got scammed by these people, but you don't have to!

This place has got to be the all-time worst hotel i have ever stayed at in my entire life! Here is a long, detailed account of my stay, found at this link:

For starters the room smelled like mildew and cigarette smoke. Jacuzzi had been put in where the closet had been, and in our relatives' room there was a tub in the bedroom itself. Sink would not drain, toilet would not flush, and the shower knob came off in your hand. Whole place was full of piles of junk and filthy dirty. As I said, run away!
