I looked over the other reviews and thought I would give it a shot. Bad idea. This is like a Motel 6 from the '70s or maybe not even that good. The smells in the motel are horrible and I was coughing after 10 minutes. I tried to check out and they said my credit card had already been charged for one night. They had me try a different room which was less smelly but not a nice motel, so I agreed to stay one night. The next morning upon checkout the Manager told me he couldn't print a receipt because I booked online and would be billed for 3 nights. I told him I didn't like the motel and wanted to leave and he said there was nothing he can do. I called the travel site and they got me the refund. Bottom line is never stay at a property you have never heard of and don't pre-pay. I actually did not realize that I had agreed to prepay so I think I was taken advantage of. Worst stay in my life and do not believe the pictures either. Someone is very talented with a camera to make the place look better than it is. You can't photograph smells though.
