Why did I even follow up after such rude front seat service? The no-tell motel was just that! Out dated and not worth the few dollars you spend. Put up another $20 and go up the road.. We come up often and generally rather be with our kid at school or dinner etc so we go no-frills.. But this one...

I would have given the place an average but a few things made me pick poor. First of all the bathroom. A filthy shower curtain, dirty rim on commode and no shower head. There was a thick layer of dust on both night stands. I think these are all easy fixes. The best part of the deal was the price....

Motel was cheap and clean, but the in room heater is very old with no temperature setting. It would get too hot and then too cold when you shut it off. Spent most of night turning it on and off. Also, there was no in room coffee pot, alarm clock, refrigerator, microwave, kleenex (nose tissue), but there were no bugs...

We read review before we booked, but tried to be optimistic in regards to the one good review out of 10 bad ones. The price was great, but the conditions of the room was unacceptable. I've stayed in motels in rural 3rd world countries that were cleaner than this. The lamps were covered in rust, there was some "unknown" substance...

Game day weekend in Gainesville is the absolute worst time to book a hotel, and this hotel presents a cheap and efficient option. After reading previous reviews, we brought Clorox wipes and our own sheets (it should be noted that we are germaphobes and we're idiotically franking out about Ebola and the enterovirus). The truth is the worst part of...

I read all of the reviews and hoped it wouldn't be terrible. The pillows were mildewed yellow. The carpet was gross. The room smelled of smoke. I am shocked the Department of Health hasn't closed this location for the numerous health code violations contained therein. Maybe people just don't complain enough.

Should not have waited until the last minute to book a hotel for homecoming at the University of Florida. The place is disgusting. The Bates Motel would have been an upgrade. Obvious ceiling leak which caused the wallpaper border (yes wallpaper border) to have chunks missing. Stains on the carpet. Faucet in bathroom was rusty and green and the tile...

Let me start out by saying I always stay in budget motels and have stayed at some places that were not the greatest all the time. However the fact that this place can operate and not be shut down is a miracle. This was the filthiest place I have seen and it pained me to stay here. I could not...
