Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Daughter and I had been on road all day and just wanted decent place to rest for few hours, daughter had Allergic reaction to mold smell in room was only there few minutes asked manager for refund and would not give $$ back, had to pay cash with no refund, should have been a RED FLAG, JUST SAY NO. Got room with spa tub, tub was old and out dated had blackish film soap residue in tub. Sticky residue seemed to be on all furniture and walls also, No deadbolt locks on doors, very scetchy enviroment. Manager was working in restraunt/bar, NASTY scanky bar fly's and the kitchen was filthy dirty would not feed my dog from hear, health department will be notified of this PIT, this whole establishment should be shut down and burned to ground to stop the infestation of bugs and ignorance of people who think they have a clue about a hospitality industry. WORST customer service I have ever had.(JUST STAY AWAY) you will be better off parking under the bridge near there.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with family

Four kind of bugs........ bed bugs, crickets, cockroaches, moths caught 18 critters before I had enough and had to leave. the shower was full of standing water drain not working, papramedics and police clean out a room with 8-10 people some arrested, some gurneyed away by the local fd.If you watch south park the bar /restaurant reminded of that place with a bunch of middle to old age ex-men, its the episode where they say "we don't take to your kind around here." went next door to another place very nice room, clean, no bugs, no druggies

Room Tip: go next door

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.
