“Beyond disgusting!”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

four families within our family reserved rooms here for our family reunion. All of our rooms had dirty towels and dirty sheets. There were lots of hairs and stains on the sheets and blankets. The air conditioners were filthy and blowing moldy air. The carpets were filthy and the tubs were covered in dosp scum. We all checked out before bedtime and were yelled at by management. Management refused to give us clean sheets or issue any type of refund. Unless you want to wake up with a nasty disease, do NOT stay here!!!

Room Tip: choose a different hotel or sleep in your car

Reviewed 20 May 2012

Our room was exceptionally clean and quiet, the bed was very comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful. The TV was an older model, not a big-screen HD, but there were lots of channels and it worked fine. The only downside was no morning coffee, but McDonalds was a short walk so no real problem. As the other reviewer said, they're behind a florist but that's actually an advantage in terms of quietness. We parked immediately outside our room.

We'd definitely stay here again. I really don't see any validity to the other reviewer calling this place a "fleabag."

Reviewed 26 December 2010

The only reason I agreed to pay $55 for this dump was that I was too tired to drive anywhere else.

This 60's era motor lodge may have seen better days, but it would have to be a long time ago. The building is situated behind a florist, and the rooms all have a lovely view of their dumpster and associated rotting vegetation. The "parking lot" was a few spaces inconveniently separated from the building by a strip of older trees.

The TV and air conditioner barely worked, but the micro fridge was unplugged, mildewed and didn't close. As for the bathroom, there were 2 hand towels, a body towel and a bar of soap. No washcloth or shampoo. At least the water was hot. I don't recall seeing any insects, but I'm sure they were lurking.
