“Smelled moldy and looked dirty”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

When you pull in at midnight on a road trip, you can't always choose where you stay. I would never choose this place again, though. There was a dirty t-shirt on the sidewalk in front of the room when we went in, and it was still there at 9:00 the next morning. When we opened the door to the room, we got hit with a big whiff of musty moldiness, and we had to leave the door open for an hour and turn the AC up full to clear the air. The tub was dirty, there were big stains on the carpet, and things in the bathroom were falling apart. Worse, there were no outlets near the bed for my husband's CPAP machine or even a reading light. We were in the room less than nine hours, but it was too long.
