“Dirty & filthy!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Very dirty room! Pillow cases were filthy with hair on them. Carpet looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in a month. Bathroom floor was dirty, ceilings were stained, walls were damaged. Never will stay here again - it was late and we were out of choices.

Worst hotel I have EVER stayed at. Absolutely disgusting! Bathroom full of mold, grout full of who knows what. Dirty towels, stained sheets, moldy a/c, tv remote didn't work, bed was uncomfortable hard and lumpy, huge cracks and water damage to the ceiling, seedy characters in the parking lot, loud groups of unchecked riff raff. No coat of paint or change of sheets could possibly help this dump. The entire building was falling apart. Huge cracks in the concrete and the room was leaning. (At first we just thought we were crazy, but a ball placed on the floor anywhere in the room rolled toward the wall with the door) When we woke the next morning, walked down the moving balcony area, we looked at the building and sure enough you can clearly see its all sagging down.

If I hadn't pre-paid for the room, I would have left immediately. I would have rather slept in my car, and would have if I could have fit 4 people to sleep and wasn't worried about the ne'er do well parking lot hang out.
