I was really disappointed when we first arrived. One there were garbage and tires in the parking lot. Once we were given our key to the room, there were numerous people hanging outside of the other rooms. It looked more like there were people just living there for ages. Once we entered the room, the smell was horrible. My children were disgusted with the awful smell. The blankets did not look clean. We requested for something to air the room out, did not work. We thought about just leaving and staying somewhere else, but since they would not accomodate the charges that were already taken out, we decided to leave and return when it was time to just go to bed. Slept with the awful smell, but what disturbed us the most was receiving a knock at the door....a dirty looking unstabled woman had the nerve to complain about the water running from the room we were staying at. At other hotels we usually wait till check-out, but after experiencing the stay here we cut it short and left first thing in the morning. Basically, this motel was more of a filthy, unsanitized place. I would not even allow my children to use the towels provided. I even bought sanitation wipes to wipe up the sink and toilet before we used them. I would never recommend anyone to stay at this motel. Worse experience of ourlives, especially for my children. Cannot trust what you see in the photos, it's better to check it out in person.....

  • Liked — nothing
  • Disliked — Filthy, smelly, unpleasant room. The motel was more like a place where unstable individuals under the influence of some sort would stay.
