“Worst Motel Ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2010

My skin is still crawling from having spent a night in this hole. Bugs in the bed, rotted box spring, blood stained sheets, sticky floors, bad, bad smell.

I feel sorry for anyone who stays here. Dumpiest of the dumps.

STAY AWAY!

This hotel is really bad, the sheets were plenty of holes, the room where we stayed was infested with bugs and had a terrible smell.

Stayed one night. Room was ok, fairly clean. Location not bad, on N Federal Hwy. Saw a few rough looking women hanging out there. Overall, ok for a night's stay and for the price.

Myself & two friends stayed here for two nights in late April. It's a very basic hotel and the decor is a little dated, sure, but it's nowhere near as bad as some other people have stated.

Don't go expecting luxury at this place. It's one of those What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get sort of motels.

You're not too far from the beach, Hollywood or Wilton Manors. You'll reach either of these desitnations in about 15 minutes by car.

Pool is pretty good here, if a little small.

  • Liked — Pool was not bad
