I wasn’t expecting anything fancy but I was not expecting to pay a $100 cash deposit at check in! This should be prominently noted in the description! There were multiple people checking in at the same time and none of us knew this in advance! Make sure to bring cash! No ATM on site. And the guy behind the desk was very rude. Will not go back.

The heater worked. Otherwise, there is nothing positive to say. $100 CASH ONLY deposit required, incredibly rude staff, lobby is closed so you have to stand in the cold to check in or out (and they're not even trying to be quick, FILTHY FILTHY rooms, non-flushing toilet in the "remodeled" room, non-smoking room smells like an ashtray, no breakfast at all. cigarette butts and needle caps IN the sink, dirty towels, spider webs everywhere, spider ON the towels, fiilthy bedspread complete with crumbs, shower curtain dirty, no garbage can at all, coffee maker missing parts needed to brew coffee, and on and on. Absolutely the worst and dirtiest place I've ever paid money for. Kind of a sketchy part of town. Probably not ok for children

I stayed her 3 times before, but it was never this bad and unsafe. The staff was NOT friendly at all and not helpful. I was leading a group of students that all felt very unsafe. We had to change hotels because of the safety issues. People were already in 2 of the rooms we were checked into. We would like a full refund

Found a crack pipe under the bed and a condom in between the bed and the head board. The sheets were stained and it just felt nasty.

Hardly no lighting. The lamps besides the beds dont work at all, there are bugs everywhere, crawling on the walls and floors, theres a whole in the wall, had to pay $100 deposit even tho i had already paid for the room. The toilet makes to much noise which caused a noise complaint. Even when you walk, it causes a noise complaint, bess are itchy and the customers service was down right horrible. I saw other customers at check in complaining as well. The walls need cleaned, the windows need cleaned, even the floors werent cleaned either. Need to fix the bed frame because my little sister was cutting her feet on it. There was like a smootie stain on my mattress thats aunts were on. And aunts were all over rhe phone as well. Over all this place was absolutely horrible. I dont suggest anyone come here.

I know it’s a cheap motel, but we couldn’t even shower due to the water spouting out of the faucet handle and wall instead of just the shower head and everything was filthy. Cigarette burns through the blankets of our non-smoking room. Meh. Is what it is. Traveling sometimes limits options.
