The only redeeming quality to this place is the cleaning staff and the maintenance man. We were assured via email by a man named Neil that all rooms are equipped with microwaves and fridges ( at no additional charge), both of which were not in the room. When my husband went to inquire about this, he was told it would... More

This motel is an older motel that could use some updating, but I think as usual most of the reviews are unfair.I found it to be clean, comfortable bed,... More

Sleep anywhere but here. Ask a homeless person if you can rent the cardboard box next to them, you would be more comfortable and it would be cleaner. The same filth left in these rooms when first built can be found on the floor and in the bed. Do your self a favor and sleep in your car if you... More

We were at this dump for 20 minutes. The "non smoking" room smelled like a dirty laundry hamper. The room was filthy, food on the floor under the edge of the bed. Hair in the sink. Half of the lights didn't work because the light bulbs were GONE. Then .....There were.....The bugs........behind the mattress next to the wall (roac hes)... More

On the way to Key West, FL via Southwest airlines out of the Birmingham, AL airport, we decided on this grim place due to price, as did others.
