This is undoubtedly the most filthy, disgusting hotel I’ve been in.. Right from the reception to the room, that had a distinct reek from years of smoking, the wallpaper was coming off, the TV didn’t work, the door lock was broken and so on.. I spend just enough time there to book somewhere else– had no other hotel been available,... More

When we pulled into the parking lot, the lot of full of weeds coming through the payment. The cars parked looked as if they were from the 80s and 90s and even then not taken care of. On the window was a huge sign that says, "No Guns Allowed". Then an other car pulled up with a person which looks... More

My first impression upon entering the door was a sewer gas odor. This was quickly trumped by unfriendly receptionist, and complete filth. A "No guns allowed" sign on the door made me wish I had mine, as this appeared to be a shady area. The second party booking company I used had this listed as a 3 star. I'd give... More

I am preparing to move to the Memphis area for a job in Byhalia, MS. So my company tells me to stay here because it's a low rate for my trip to find a place to live. As soon as I walked in the front door, the place smells very musty. And that musty smell continues through all of the... More

Worst place I have ever stayed. Pool not open, had to change rooms, not very clean, outside doors didn't lock, and much more wrong. Slept with one eye open. Afternoon lady at desk very helpful when I had several problems, but nothing else as very good.

I had to laugh after reading the other reviews because my experience has been exactly the same. There were zero vacancies anywhere else and we booked this blindly during a family road trip. Not only did the place feel very unsafe, it was horribly filthy and broken down. Think old bottle caps and candy wrappers under the bed, stripped water... More
