You quoted a price that was exactly what the hotel was charging. I actually paid more for this room than if I would have just walked in. You’re amazing.

the price was good, but everything else was bad!! one thing, there was no sign anywhere that told anyone that it was a motel. Second, some of the clientele were pretty bad, and they made it bad for everyone else.

I went to desk to ask for channel list for TV after checking all the drawers and told that housekeeping must have accidentally thrown it out though there was very little evidence of cleaning basic upkeep or maintenance being done in room for a long time. They had no list.

The beds were comfortable, carpet in room and hallways needed a major cleaning, there were no towels or wash clothes in the room, the mini fridge smelled like something died in it, weed smell in hallway, and we reserved a handicap room which we did not get.

The dirtiest room I’ve ever stayed in. Broken bed, carpet hasn’t been vaccumbed in a long time. Tub toilet sink mirrors and window very dirty. Sheets stained with little hairs in beds. Spend more money and stay somewhere else. I am not exagerating. Disgusting

The bathroom door had fist holes in it. The sink had bloodstains the size of your hand, and I got bit by a spider in my sleep.

The room was not what was presented on the website. The bathroom was not "clean". The bathmat had black on one side. The sink was a mess with chipped paint and just not presentable (I would not have that sink in my home!) Thankfully, my daughter and I only had to sleep there, so if that is all you need is a bed to sleep on, you should check this out. Breakfast was just pastries and coffee. I would not stay here again.
