“Just slightly better than sleeping in your car.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2011

I use inexpensive motels on a regular basis, and don't mind going without the frills to save a few dollars, but this motel is not worth it. It cost $50 for the night. There was very little heat and it was December. The water in the toilette, sink and tub, had "stuff" floating in it. No idea what it was, but I was avoiding it. The towels were badly stained and very stiff. The floor was not clean and I dropped a pair of pants on it, and could not wear them afterwards as they were covered with dirt and lint. The bed sheets had bits of black lint on them and there were holes in the blanket and bedspread. Broken venetian blinds, broken tap, chipped bath tub, dirty... this place is not one that I will ever stay at again.
