I've stayed at a lot of cheap motels, and this is the worst motel stay ever! When we arrived at our first room a guy was in there and kept saying curtain, curtain and pointing to a curtain fixing being done and pointed us back to the front desk (he could hardly speak english, just like the man and woman at the front desk). So we then got sent to a room upstairs. The bathroom light did not turn on and it was pitch black in there. We couldn't get it fixed because the woman at the front desk didn't understand what we were saying. So we had to keep the bathroom door open to be able to see in there at all. Awful! The shower floor was extremely slippery when dry, before even turning the water on. It felt like there was some very slippery residue of something in there, I almost slipped twice. There was staining on the bed sheets and pillows. Pillows were very uncomfortable and made my neck hurt. Never slept on uncomfortable pillows before (never even in cheaper motels). The bed itself was comfortable, but we paid the rate for the king size and we were given a queen size and we were not refunded the difference. No wireless internet connection was available as they advertised. They also advertised wired connection, but apparently you have to bring your own ethernet cable for that, so we couldn't use the internet. We got a non-smoking room because we can't tolerate smoke odors, and at night the strong stench of marijuana seeped under our door from someone else's room, so we had to put towels under our door to block it. The carpet was very dirty and there was a dead worm on it. There were also food crumbs on top of the bed spread when we arrived. The place was very noisy with people coming and going until midnight, and then began again at 5 am, so I only got 5 hours of sleep (which wasn't very restful due to bad pillows). We checked out at 7 am, and there were no pastries left so my husband didn't get breakfast because he doesn't like cereal and those are the only 2 options (should have grabbed him one when they had a whole seven of them at 6:30). What I thought was orange juice at the breakfast, was very watery orange drink made from powder (Tang or something like it). Had to eat my cereal on their dirty couch by the front desk (no tables). I chose this place because it had amazing reviews on expedia.com, and I've stayed at other Knights Inns that are great. I think this location is just very poorly managed. I just got home from there, and my neck is itchy and has a red rash. I'm thinking either something there bit me or I was allergic to something on the bed or something. Also, while I was eating breakfast by the front desk, another guest asked them for an iron because it was apparently missing from their room, and they couldn't understand him either, and sent him away without an iron. My husband also agrees this is the worst motel ever, and neither of us will ever stay there again.
