This place not only had prostitutes and pimps, there should be law involved as well as department of health, there were black burn marks, stains and hairs on sheets and towels, the mattresses had all different color stains brown, red, black, bug in refrigerator, needless to say we did not stay nor did two of other rooms from league had to drive all night home because of this, I am demanding a refund and this motel should be banned from this site and any others!! Very disturbing and disgusting!

People from that area live in this place. Termites were flying around in the room. It was hideous. They have rooms that they give guest as well as the rooms that they give to the locals. I was place in a room that the sheets had not been changed and the people had been put out but they lived in the room for 6months. The place is also prejudice. All hands down, don't ever go here. It is deplorable, swimming pool is nasty, wouldn't dare get in that water. Children of the residents dominated the dirty pool, no bathroom outside so you now they urinated constantly while in the water. Beware!!!!!!!

This has to be one of the worst hotels I have ever seen. It was nasty, I was given a key card before I checked by the counter staff to review. There were police there in nearby rooms doing what appeared to be a raid. I immediately returned key card and asked to cancel and refund which they refused. I called Travelocity which took weeks to get to resolution. This place should be condemned. Stay away.

Nothing. There was nothing appealing of this facility other than location.

The desk staff was nice, however, the rooms were disgusting. I can't believe it's possible to book a dump like this on Travelocity. The desk attendant gave me an upgrade (he said) before I even saw the hotel rooms. He noticed I was neat and professional I guess. The upgrade must have been the recently remodeled bathroom. Looking closely at floors, walls, etc for cleanliness was a mistake....beyond gross, and my standards are average at best.
