This is literally the worst hotel I've ever had to spend the night & there have been a few rather undesirable ones in the past. It was filthy, no fitted sheet on the bed. The walls had dirt/stains that looked like they had been there for an eternity. I would truthfully rather we had slept outside in the rain. NEVER...

First off, let me state for the record that my expectations were very low considering the quoted rate; that being said, it exceeded the lowest of the lows bordering on scary at times. Unsuitable and unacceptable for just one night, even if that sole purpose of that one night was to cook some meth - which we did not, but...

Never again! I had to switch rooms three times because the scary man at the front desk refused to give me my money back. When I first checked in I asked if I could get my money back if I had any problems and he said no problems. Rooms are great. The first room stunk it was really hard to...

While traveling in this area for business/pleasure, I had the unfortunate experience to stop here. Room not too clean, air conditioner ancient and noisy. Bed was about 50 years old and the headboard FELL off the bed! Place needs a lot of TLC and updating. Never would recommend this place to anyone!

We have stayed here a few times while doing photography trips in the area, we are two single guys traveling and are willing to accept low standards for a cheap price. At this point I can't stand the owner of this dump. He is one of the least friendly people I have ever met. Considering that we have actually returned...

Next - a request for a $5. key deposit. Then I endeavoured to contact Travelocity, which was answered by a recording and their music channel - costing $22. on my...
