The hotel needs work!!! The bed was comfortable, the coffee maker did not work, the ice machine was broken, the pool and spa were broken. But for $49.00 can't ask for much. Breakfast was ok. The STAFF was terrific, they were very sorry for all the things that were wrong. Its not the fault of staff. I should have said give me the owner. Won't stay there again.

had a pleasant visit a year ago. Decided to stay 2 nights this year.. big mistake!!

asked for room on first floor, due to mobility issues.. made reservation online Sunday, they received Friday, couldn't/didn't think to call or e-mail me before I got there.

wifi last year was excellent, this year ws barely useable

got partway home, and no drivers license.. last person that had it was their desk clerk.

I advise all travelers to make a photocopy of their license, and hand that to a hotel desk clerk... you will need a badge to touch my license from now on

its sad to see a business with a manager that is so rude she hangs up on a paying customer

Room Tip: any other motel

Asked for non-smoking room but room had cigarette burns and an ash tray! Smelled horrible, purchased car freshener to hang over AC... Ceiling in bathroom was blackened from mold. Floors sticky and turned bottom of feet black. Towels were very stained! Dead bugs in bathroom floor! Fan did not work in bathroom as well as one of overhead lights! Workers offered a discount on my next stay..... Will not return!

When I came upon the hotel I figured out why it was so cheap. The location was where it seem to be a violent area. As I walked in to check in my lungs were filled with odor of smoke. I could not breathe due to the strong odor. I did not feel safe at the hotel because of some guest that were roaming the hallways. As I was going to lay down for a nap, I spotted stains on the sheets. When the housekeeper came to change them, she gave me an attitude saying, "I didnt clean this room so I didnt do this." She startled my niece that was with me and I was like "Ok?" The pool was very deceiving from our room. It looked very nice and cleaned from our room but when we got in it, it was a whole different story.
