We were taking our 5 grand kids on a long weekend getaway. We reserved 2 adjoining rooms three weeks in advance of this trip. The information we were given said this "hotel" had a swimming pool, provided breakfast and had adjoining rooms. We called ahead to explain we would be checking in late due to the fact we had taken the kids to see a Giants game in SF. We arrived at 11:45 PM. The owners met us in the office and at first were cordial. When we realized not only did we NOT have adjoining rooms, the rooms we were given could not have been further apart, literally on the opposite sides of the facility. The rooms, smelled awful, they were dirty, had NO towels or wash cloths. The TV's were at least 20 years old. There is NO swimming pool and they do NOT provide breakfast. When we told the owner this is not what we had reserved she got very testy and said, "well don't stay here then"! We were in a strange city at midnight with 5 grand kids. We felt like we didn't have any choice, so we stayed the night. There were scary looking people in and out of the facility all hours of the night. We could barely sleep. We got up at 6:30 am the next morning and left, the owner was extremely rude and simply said, "I told you, you could stay somewhere else". We have since found out that this motel is where a lot of drug dealing and prostitution takes place and we believe it. It was a terrible experience!
