COCKROACHES!!! Not to mention an EXTREMELY rude manager. After making reservations for 4 rooms months in advance, we called the motel to give them our confirmation numbers so that they could put our rooms close to each other. We were told it would be taken care of and then we called a few days before our arrival just to make sure and we were told the same thing. THEN when we checked in we were told the same thing. However, we were given rooms that weren't on the same floor or even the same side of the hotel as each other.
Although extremely incompetent of the motel staff, we were able to make due with the room situation and continue on with our weekend. The first night we were there, there was also a large high school basketball team also staying there. They were loud and swearing outside our room all night and were sort of getting out of hand. I know the manager can't completely control that so that still wasn't that big of a deal until the next day while myself and seven girlfriends were waiting in front of the office for our ride to go antique shopping. As we're standing there, the manager comes out of the office and tells us something along the lines of "I just wanted to come out here and break up this party before it starts." He was very rude and told us how he had a problem with the basketball team the night before... we asked him why he felt the need to "break up our party before it starts" when obviously we're 8 women in our mid thirties going antique shopping, not a loud, obnoxious basketball team. We also mentioned the room reservation situation and how we were promised rooms close together and he said "it's not possible to get reservations together so you should have never been told that." Really??
To top off the weekend I was packing up my suitcase on the last day when I saw that there was a visitor in my room. A large COCKROACH scurried across my floor and you know what they say, where there's one there's a thousand more! Absolutely disgusting. I packed up my things as quick as I could and got the h*** out of there but I was still concerned about cockroaches that may have gotten into my things.
Bottom line: NEVER AGAIN!! Anywhere and I mean anywhere has got to be better then this place.
P.S. No blow dryer in the room, holes were burned in the bedspread of our non smoking room, and the phone was broken. Good luck in case of an emergency and you have to dial 911.
