Stay away from Ray’s!!! I was quite surprised by my accommodations at Ray’s after reading the reviews on this site. Don’t be fooled by the photos. Ray is a professional photographer and every picture is tented yellow to hide the dirt. Quite frankly, Ray’s is a filthy mess. I knew I was in trouble when I walked through the front door, the smell of pine cleaner almost knocked me down. I was escorted to my basement level room situated only a few feet away from the noisy laundry facility, only to be greeted by dead flies and dirty linen. The bed was lumpy and creaked loudly with every move. The walls and doors were smeared with blood and boogers. The shower had a grimy ring around it with questionable looking black specs. Do not expect to see cute little bottles of shampoo, conditioner or lotion. No, Ray offers the giant bottles of the dollar store stuff, reused of course. A hot shower lasts about five minutes. Forget about getting actual rest in this place. The alarmingly loud front desk phone starts to ring at the crack of dawn and you can hear the foot traffic from the ground level when all of the guests arrive like cattle for their breakfast. Breakfast is good, if you can find a clean plate.
