I complained to management about my room, as it was dusty and lacked drinking cups. Because I couldn't get a refund on my reservation to go stay somewhere else, I felt trapped with staying in a 2nd rate room. I ended up damp dusting the room with paper towels and Windex before I could get to sleep. Management promised to clean the room the next day.

The worst hotel/motel we've ever been to. The owners and staff were super friendly and nice so at least there was that. Everything else was a nightmare. * Owner disclosed the bathroom isn't wheelchair friendly BUT stated the threshold in to the room itself was a few inches. The room didn't have a threshold but a legit step over 12 inches tall. Big difference between a few inches and an entire foot.I had to ask for help from a member of staff to help me lift my husband and wheelchair in to the room itself together. * The air conditioning knobs were broken and wouldn't let it turn off so either it was blasting at 60 degrees or heating at 85. I had to unplug it to turn it off. *Microwave was filthy so I cleaned it up. Went to microwave popcorn and it shot sparks from the inside. Unplugged that also. *Live and dead spiders all over the corners and edges of the walls including the coatrack which we didn't notice. Woke up to spiders over husband's jacket. Not fun. * Both beds were droopy with one of the mattresses so worn husband felt the slats of the bed under his butt. So we slept in the other one which wasn't much better and the worst pillows in a hotel ever. * We woke up bitten everywhere by bedbugs. Bedbugs are common, sometimes happen in the best hotel. Took pics of the bites to show the front desk in the morning when I went to check us out early and get a refund for our 2nd day (not about to stay another night). Guy at the desk was polite but wouldn't look at the picture, didn't care they had bedbugs. *Tried to take a shower before going to the front desk and all we got was grey sewer smelling water. We're very lucky we'd only booked for saturday and sunday night and we had plans that allowed us time to drive home sunday night instead of being forced to stay at this place.

This motel cost us around $100. The room looks like it needs painting, the bathroom had a broken towel rack, only 1 face cloth and 1 hand towel, 2 bath towels. 1 plastic drinking cup. It did have a working fridge and microwave. Thankfully. The bed was reasonably comfortable however the room was very noisy, the people surrounding us were banging on the wall at 6:00 a.m. it was awful. We stayed in room 240. The property itself looks run down.

Stayed there and unfortunately was too late on a cold winter day to cancel. This was rated as a 2-2.5 start hotel but sill cost $88. However this is more a one star, bathroom door was busted, cigarette holes in sheet, mold smell and although we opted for the breakfast package, there was not breakfast at all. This is such a scam type of property.

Stayed 1 night & it was 1 night too many. The motel units are horrible. Save your money & sleep in your car. Seriously! The units are filthy disgusting. The microwave was full of dents as if it was punched. Walls & doors were extremely dirty. The furniture looks like it was trash picked. The picture that is shown is exactly what the rooms look like without the filth.

The place is filthy and they have no problem lying through their teeth - They indicate breakfast is included yet don't even have a fridge in the room or even any cups. Also the bookaroom.com site I booked it on shook me down for $50 above the room rate for "various taxes and resort fee."When I complained to management they claimed to not even know who bookaroom.com was. All in all a miserable experience and thank god it was only for one night.

Amenities: No breakfast, no coffee, no coffee maker in room. No ice/no ice bucket. Bathroom: No towels nor washcloths. No conditioner--several tiny bottles of shampoo and one soap bar. No drinking glasses. Room had two attached hangers on hanging rod. No tissues (which would have been nice because the smell of the room makes your nose stuffy). Electrical: Few outlets. The microwave had an outlet on the back of it which had the plug to the bedside lamp plugged into it. Across the room there was one outlet but the upper part of it was tipped out of the wall. We had to plug our phone charger there, and it made the charger very hot. When we first arrived, there were only two very small lamps on each side of the king bed. Within 15 minutes one lamp went out. I unscrewed the LED bulb and it was very hot at the base. LED bulbs aren't supposed to get hot. I told the guy at the front desk that I thought something was wrong with the lamp (because of the heat

My review is truthful. Room 225 Room was very basic. Nowhere to sit except small coffee table. No coffee maker or cups. Microwave broken. Very basic breakfast. My wife and I enjoy going on road trips and when I get a receipt on check out, I write down on the back of receipt my experience and keep it for future reference if we are in that direction again. Needless to say, this hotel is not on our return list.

We have been at 2-star hotels before, but this place doesn’t deserve that definition. The room was filthy, stains everywhere on the walls, the mattress sides were yellow, I didn’t have the courage to even check the rest of the mattress. The sheets seemed clean but I doubt blankets are washed between guests. We booked a non smoking room, but this room heavily smelled like smoke. You might not be allowed to smoke in this room now, but definitely it used to be a smoking room before. I am asking a refund for imposing a whole night of toxic and cancerous smoke on my two small children. We were so grossed out by this room that we left our luggage in the car and slept in our clothes. We didn’t want any of our belongings inside that room. We woke up early and left to forget this terrible experience. I am surprised that dirty places like this are still in business. And we had to pay $98 for this horror. Please don’t stay here. This place needs to fix lots of issues and shouldn’t be offering rooms to human beings.

The hotel staff was attentive and pleasant. Unfortunately that was end of a positive review. The hotel grounds were deplorable. The lobby and buildings were old and unkempt. The room was dark because there were only two little lamps for the whole room. Of the three pillows on the bed, two were missing pillowcases. When I asked for two pillowcases for me to put on the pillows, they gave me a stained pillowcase. Gross. There was only one set of towels for two people. Again, I had to ask for towels. The sole chair in the room was broken - that chair should have never been in the room, but thrown away. The other furniture was old and scuffed up. The bed was terrible - the mattress had no form or shape: backbreaking and similar to quicksand. I wanted to spend as little time as possible in that room. The diningroom for the free breakfast was old and uninviting. The cabinets were old, discolored, and broken. The tables were dirty. Gross. It was good to leave that place.
