But as of now it's a hot mess. TV was off the wall.just propped up on the table. Bathroom had no toilet paper. No ice bucket in the room. And the chair and the comforter had cigarette burns in them. It has that old neighborhood motel smell to it. And to top it off the room had bed bugs. And it must be a serious infestation because they were crawling down the wall

The only thing I liked was the location because it was convenient. However, this has been the most disgusting, run down and ghetto motel I have ever stayed in. I didn’t get the room I booked. Room walls and ceiling are taped up, furniture is old and run down, carpet was dirty etc. Place has roaches, shower didn’t work, tub was clogged, toilet didn’t flush right and the beds looked like they had been slept on and bedding wasn’t changed. The hallways stink and carpet is super dirty. I had dogs barking all night. It should be illegal to rent rooms in those conditions. The only reason I stayed because of course they said it was non-refundable. Honestly this place should be shut down.

In the refrigerator, there was a peeled orange, and a half-empty 2-liter bottle. There was a little purse on the ground. The bathtub didn't have a switch, to turn on shower. No essentials in the room: no soap, no towels, no toilet paper. No remote control for the television. The bed's sheet wasn't big enough to cover the whole mattress.

Avoid this hotel. There was drug activity and police presence. Our room had an unmade bed (we had to make it) and no towels available. The person with the key to the towel closet was not going to be in until 11am the next day. There were visible bugs in the room, and other customers were heard complaining about bed bugs to the front desk. After night one, we cancelled the rest of our reservation and found new accommodations.

There were people milling around outside as we pulled up. When we walked into lobby it reeked of pot and cigarettes and was dirty. We didn’t even go to the room we gave the key back immediately. We definitely did not feel very safe
