I drove nearly 15 hrs with 2 teens in my car in 100 deg heat, by the time I reached Kingman, the night we stayed here. First I went to motel6, but at 10pm at night, they had nothing left except for those who made reservations. Right across the street was this motel, so we jumped at it since I was actually physically ill from driving so long and hot! I was shocked when they said no charge for the WIFI and service was speedy, but if you give out the code to anyone else other than who they gave it to, they will charge you $35!
They told me $2 deposit to insure we return the room key, which was plastic as all motels now. Could not believe though, that their price was exact as Motel6. I paid though, thinking the room must be nice for that price! WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!
We had medication on our bodies from the last motel that gave us bed bugs, so as soon as we walked in the room, smelled like a rotting body in there, and floor was discolored from so much contamination! We each had to grab one pair of socks to put on when we had to step onto floor to not catch anything living in that carpet! The blanket smelled like a very bad yeast infection sat on it. (i used to care for elderly with those issues and know the smell)! We all got our own blankets we had been using the whole trip, our own towels since the motel ones all had stains of god knows what on them. No cups or ice machine, so I had to use my own mug i brought & take up the last of ice in ice food bag I invented on the road. The outlets where far from the beds, so i had to use the one in the bathroom area. That was scary since the whole outlet was hanging OUT of the wall! I just figured, if i get electrocuted, they will get a BIG lawsuit from my family and me!
I needed a shower very bad, got my own soap since there was none. The water pressure was barely coming out, but i got the job done. It got real hot in there though, so I opened the window in the shower area just to crack it a bit, and MASSIVE amount of insects jumped up to come in, (no screen on window). It scared me so bad i nearly slipped in there. I shut it before the whole clan made it inside. I got out, then noticed that all the walls in there, including the bathroom door, all had graffiti and lots of phone numbers! It was as if I was in a bar and using the toilet in the ghetto! As I was drying myself off, there were cock roaches crawling all over the floor! EWWW!
I was just to darn tired out to get out and go looking for another place, so we all just went to bed. My back hurt so bad from the hard as a rock bed, so i tossed & turned, with hardly any sleep! Not to mention that there were also bed bugs THERE as well! MORE welts on our bodies!!!
Checked out asap the next day, to get my $2 back, but did complain about everything. They said the person in charge was not there to handle the complaint, but they offered to keep my name and number for owner to call me back.
2 days later when no return call, I called them. Spoke with owner, and all he could say was that, if you didn't like the room, then why did you stay in it? I told him that how was I suppose to know there would be bed bugs, or that his disgusting bed was not going to allow me to sleep?! I was trying to just stay positive and get through that one last night of our trip! I didn't ask for a 100% refund since we DID stay the night, but I did ask for half compensation of having to stay in such filth and being attacked by the bugs. He said he would have his pest control company come check it all out. If his company finds what was in there, he would call me with some compensation. Never heard from him again! This all happened last month! I only just found this review site last night! Before this I was using Yelp, which apparently does not have even half the amount of users as I can find on here to give me good advise on where to stay or not now!!
