I've stayed here before, years ago, as a single person. Maybe I was too intoxicated to really care were I slept. But as a parent and a little older and wiser person I've learned what was acceptable at 21, not so much with kids at 34. I was looking for a cheap place to just sleep, we didn't really plan to even be in the room more that 8 hours. This place is NASTY. I've stayed in dives before and am not above them but this place is worse than a dive. If you have small children...DO NOT STAY, if you are sensitive to mold...DO NOT STAY, if you like to sleep on clean unstained sheets...DO NOT STAY, if you really don't like seeing bugs in your room (huge wood roaches)...DO NOT STAY. We arrived around 11pm, walking into the room we were hit with a very strong order of mold and mildew. My 9-year-old son did not want to sleep here, I convinced him it was okay for one night. I was so wrong. The smell was overwhelming, the sheets were stained with huge orange/yellowish marks and the comforters were another story. One comforter was covered in long black hairs, (I have short blond) and stained with something brown all over it. The other comforter had what was undoubtedly blood, menstrual blood. The pillows were flat, not that we cared, we were not staying there. The bathroom was covered again with the black hairs EVERYWHERE! On top of everything else, the room was clearly set up for one double bed, they had two double beds cramped in the room, there was 8 inches between the bed and the wall to get to the bathroom, I had to squeeze between the wall and bed, not that it was a pleasant idea of rubbing up against either. I cannot imagine this place getting a decent review. Again I am not uppity, I've stayed at some pretty cheap, off the beaten path places, but this place was just DIRTY!
