Do Not Stay Here!! My son and I were traveling together to Michigan City. He booked it through Hotwire. He found it for supposedly a good price. So we arrived at the hotel around 2 am. We went to the office and it was not very professional. So the lady behind the counter checked us in. So no extra pillows....

Booked this dump through Hotwire.com. few days later the motel charged me again, I called on Sunday, was told to call back on Monday, I've been calling numerous times since Monday and no one is answering my calls. Room smelled like a stale ashtray. Walls were nasty. Only 1 pillow per bed. Only one bed had a "comforter". The place...

Lobby smelled and had towels all over the floor from something leaking. The stairs to the room had rotten food on them. Along with an open can of boil peanuts that was being eaten by stray cats (yes plural). Then there was a large pile of what looked like cat vomit on the next two steps! When we actually got...

This place should be bull dozed or condemned....Don't even think of staying here, even in the worst of disasters. Sleep anywhere but here! Scary, filthy, broken down, disgusting, dangerous even with the lights off!!!!! Locks we're broken on door we had to push a heavy chair in front of door for safety....Someone is getting paid off otherwise this hotel would...

This place was a dump. Upon check-in, I went to my room, turned down the bed and found a black dirty spot on the "clean" sheets. The desk clerk changed it for me, but the tone was already set. The room was well-worn in all respects, and in desperate need of remodeling. That all said, it was (deservedly) the cheapest...

This motel is the worst. Refrigerator didn't work, no remote for the tv and key card didn't work. Staff wanted me to go to the desk every time I wanted to enter my room. This place was dirty inside and out. Garbage and dirt all over the steps, and parking lot, as well as pigeon dropping on the steps. Roadway...

Very unorganized, when we got there to check in they didn't have a room ready for us. But when they did they led us to a room that already had someone in it. (Embarrassing). After the 3rd try on their part we finally got a room. It seemed okay at first. However, there was mold on that bathroom walls the...

We stayed in Room 109. I like certain items in a room when we travel. This motel missed most of them. The girl at reception when we checked in was not wearing shoes - that should have been a clue! There was a fridge but no microwave, no coffee maker, no clock, no breakfast, no hand towels, no Kleenex. A...

This "hotel" needs to be shut down. It is a danger to travelers that are unaware of what this place really is. We arrived to check in at 6pm (check in time 2pm) and were told there were no rooms ready yet. There were at least 5 other travelers waiting around to be check in. Once we finally got a...

We were on a youth sports trip and I needed to stretch a dollar, so I booked here. BIG MISTAKE. Don't believe any review that would make you believe this is comparable to another two-star hotel like Red Roof. It is in a class to itself. It is the worst hotel I have ever seen - scary, disgusting, messy. People...

“Definitely ask for a second floor room, they just feel more safe. And I preferred a room facing the forest rather than the parking lot. But that's all personal preference.”
