One of the worst experience with this motel with a shaddy bussiness practise. The attitude of the front desk lady boils down to downright racist & rude behavior. I had booked a room thru hotwire a month back for couple of hundred bucks for a night stay with my family. Upon reaching the hotel during the night time the front desk lady refused downright that there is any room available & all the rooms were booked. She mentioned that expedia double booked the room , lame excuse? Expedia??? I mentioned that i booked thru hotwire & she says "well they are all the same, go deal with hotwire". Obviously they had sold my room to somebody else for higher price, may be they thought i won't be checking in as it was around 8:30pm. I had to call hotwire customer service & they were kind enough to route me to another hotel near by, they were totally surprised as well. This is the first time this has happened to me, never had any issues with hotwire before.
Now the interesting part, while i was talking to the front desk lady a cop came by and stood behind me. As i was about to leave the place i heard him talking to the front desk lady enquiring how long she was working there & stuff. Then he was enquiring the whereabouts of couple of persons who were staying last night, maybe prostitution ?? Drug dealers ?? The area does not seem to be safe & there is 100% illegal activity going on. Be very careful before you book this place, i was later glad that i didn't stay here.
