“Definitely a last resort”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

This motel has definitely seen better days. Although a fridge, microwave, hair dryer and alarm clock were provided, none of them were in working order. Have noticed other comments about "long term" renters. That did not make us feel very comfortable either. When I went out to my car the next morning, there was a grocery cart shoved up against the front of my car and an empty beer can lying next to it. There was apparently a shortage of towels and pillows as well.
Definitely not recommended.

We had driven 6 hours that day and arrived very late at night to find this run down place. I'm a travel agent and I haven't stayed in anything so bad ever. There was 8 of us and every room we looked at that they gave us had a terrible smell or mold in it. There were two people sleeping in their car outside our door and that was enough for me to not stay. One of our party went to his room and there was someone already in it. Old and very outdated and stinky. And no they wont give you your money back. We ended up not staying. Went over to the Ruskin Inn which was still a bit run down but much cleaner and safer I felt. I would never recommend anyone stay here.

Just stayed 2 nights, Everything in room functioned but room had odor. Lobby nice and inviting but rooms dated, old. Beds too soft and most likely old. Appeared to be quite a few long term renters there. Only 1 towel in bathroom for 2 people, so had to ask desk for another towel. Didn.t notice any bugs.

The rooms are outdated and there were dead roaches. The "neighbors" looked seedy and the worst part was we were woken at 4:10 AM because an SUV crashed in the courtyard directly in front of our hotel room. The front of the hotel is much better looking than the actual rooms. I will never stay at that dump again!!!!

Smelly and unclean. Door locks and phone didn't work. Manager couldnt have cared less. Was stuck paying for the night but it would have been like sleeping in a jail.

The glowing reviews were totally misleading. Anywhere but here.

The room smelt strange when we first entered it. It didn't smell clean or fresh at all. We came across more then one Roach during the 3 nights that we stayed. The bathroom wasn't cleaned and the shower leaked water all over the floor. The only thing that I DID like about the room was that it had a mini fridge that was nice for storing food and was a close drive to my Grandparents house. I would not stay here again.
