1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

I made a reservation..When I arrived with my family I walked into a rundown lobby with a very rude reception. First the girl working the counter that night said that I did not have a reservation, after a few minutes of shuffling papers she corrected herself and asked for a credit card, after I handed it to her she ran it and tossed it on the counter mumbled a few words and then explained she only had 1 room left and I was lucky..When I got to the room I looked at the messy bed and smelled an ashtray. There was trash in the trash can and water on the floor. I went back to lobby and let her know the situation.. She simply could care less so I left the motel and I will never return.
