This place is a mess!! The pictures on the website lie....... It's a motel that somehow got to claim hotel status. Walked into the room after a long check in to a room with black stain marks over the wall. The iron was missing, no microwave or Refrigerator provided. We stayed on the ground floor and had extra guests in our room that we didn't invite: ROACHES, CENTIPEDES!!!! Tried to use the toilet and centipedes were taking a swim. Just gross and a waste of money. Next time I'll sleep in a box!!!
