“Gross!”
Reviewed 19 November 2008

This place was so gross! The room was booked and paid for before the guys got there, and they wouldn't give them their money back. The first room didn't have heat, was filthy, broken light fixtures on the bed. They moved them to another room and it wasn't much better. There was hardly any hot water, the kitchenette was a joke. The burners on the stove barely worked. The fully stocked kitchen conisted of a very greasy skillet that was bowed, not much else. The floor was so grimey the guys were sure not to go barefoot. The guys have to make a trip over there again, but no way will they stay there. Plus when they checked out she told them they had to pay more money she misquoted them and she charged more to the credit card even when presented with all the problems they had. What a rip off.

This is an older motel. I grew up in the area and I had actually been inside these rooms many many years ago. Not much if anything has changed. We rented a kitchenette for two nights. We were going to be fixing Thanksgiving dinner and taking it out to our folks place for them. The rooms were clean. the furniture is old, the bed were doubles
if that, not queens. There were comfortable though. The windows were all unlocked if they even had locks on them. (only one of ours did) I stuck hangers in the windows to keep them from being opened too easily! Yikes! There was an air conditioner in one of the bedroom windows and no way to lock that window. Used the hanger. Hunting for the light switches in the bedrooms was an adventure. There were little
wall heaters in each room which worked pretty well in our "suite" but my sister and her family were cold in their "suite". Luckily everything worked in the kitchen, full sized oven, and the turkey came out fine. However, when anyone took a shower the hot water only lasted about 30 sec. if that. True in the other "suite" also. uhg. Try a cold shower in below freezing temperatures? No thanks. Oh, and only one thin blanket and the bed spread on each bed. My sister's family was not warm. They didn't have as many heaters apparently. Our
"suite" had a strange smell in it. Like people had smoked in it and they painted the walls without washing them down maybe? We sat around with our noses covered. They obviously know about the smell because there was a scented candle in the "living room" but alas there were no
matches to light it. It was pretty used up anyway. THEY DON'T PROVIDE ANY KITCHEN WARE AT ALL - thank goodness I asked but I forgot to tell my sister and she didn't know! WE WILL NOT STAY HERE AGAIN!

  • Liked — two seperate bedrooms, livingroom with cable tv, full kitchen
  • Disliked — cold showers, hard to find light switches, no locks on windows.

Don't every stay here! They overbooked me (and TEN other people) the night before our marathon. They told me it was MY problem! I had to take a room at another hotel and was charged more money. I was told this hotel does this often. Some of those ten people even booked their room over the phone with the hotel. I wouldn't risk it!
