“Revolting!!!!”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Firstly, we didn't stay here. We left after less than 5 minutes. Let me explain why.
As we walked into the office, the manager(?) was obviously making 'happy time' with himself. He politely stopped as myself and my girlfriend entered. Seemed like a quiet day, so we let him off. $40 a night? Cash only. Fair enough. Not the cheapest place in town, but one of. Room 26. Sorted.
We decided to have a look at the room before we took out bags in.
Dirty bed linen, dirt in piles against floor, bathroom was.... Alive. And so were the cockroaches. Covering the entire place. We escaped the room before we caught something.
The bloke in the office wasn't happy about giving me the money back, but after telling him if report him to health and safety if he didn't, we were reimbursed.
I probably will report him anyway.
Went to the best western after that up the road and had a very long shower.

Avoid at all costs.

We arrived here after a hard day riding.
The first room was stinking of smoke, dusty, dirty, dated and the towels were used and still wet.
I asked manager for a better room and said "his housekeeper must have smoked too much weed that day"????
He kindly gave us the VIP room, which has a hot tub in it (its a spa bath).
I've been unable sleep due to noise and I've placed a chest against the door.
I hope my bike is still there in the morning.
Avoid at all cost

I ended up going out to the truck at 2:30 a:m and sleeping in there instead. Food crumbs and pubes in the bed, room smelled like rottent ashtray, one dirty towel, dirty floors, ac not working right, stains on walls. People arguing at all hours of the night. This place should be condemned. Worst of the worst. Probably got some diseases just from watching tv there.

Disgusting,filthy,dangerous rooms. We stayed for one night, in the 3rd room they showed us.The first 2 were unacceptable. The fridge and microwave was dirty and rusty and had no turntable. The air conditioning didn't work. The door and window were broken. The carpet and furnishings were stained and dirty.The bin was filthy. They would not accept our confirmed booking price, and wanted a third more, and would only accept cash payment, when we had booked with visa. Our booked room was for 2 Queen Beds. We had 1. Don't go there.

Everything was dirty and filthy. The place stinks. We could hear every single sound from other rooms. Air conditionning down. Fortunatly no bedbugs but cigarettes holes. $40 only in cash. Unfriendly staff, impossible to connect the so-called free wi-fi. Probably with dealers and prostitutes... Try another motel on 66 road.

The motel itself was nothing special - dirty and in bad need of renovation. But it was a very good deal for its price (25 dollars including tax) and a manager for so kind - he even gave me free coupons for staying in one of the hotels-casinos nearby!
