Our room was average the bathroom needed remodeled. Prices are too high for that size of room, But we had hot water got clean towels. Personnel was nice and helpful. Pool was green but you could have walked up the street to swim pool was nice and blue Sunday.

My friend and I decided to take a last minute overnight trip. We tried to book a hotel and called every place in the area, even the campgrounds, and everything was booked except this motel! We were a little concerned, but desperate, so we packed extra sheets, pillows and towels and took a chance. We arrived earlier than the check...

It is about the worst place I've ever stayed in. The towels are so thin you can almost see through them no shampoo and mattress is very thin and old. How can they get away with the upkeep with crap allover the place outside. You woyld think the health department would be all over the owner.

I have stayed at quite a few different places in GOTL and the POOLSIDE motel ranks #1. The new management is great..Kat, Shawn, Mikey, and Phil are awesome! I love the location, just off the main strip, close enough to walk. The rooms were clean and the staff was very accommodating to our needs. I'll be back, soon!!

The rooms at the poolside motel are straight from the 1950s. When we arrived there Eddie the "concierge" was smoking a cigarette and most likely drinking an adult beverage. He checked us in and explained that there was a shortage in towels. When we got to the room, I was glad that I brought a comforter, a quilt, and pillows....
