“Place needs a little TLC, but OK for a short stay.”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Cindy at the front desk could not have been nicer. She was friendly and got me checked in quickly. My first impression when walking in the west entrance to get to my second-floor room. As I went to swipe my key card to open the outside door, it wasn't shut all the way. During my two-day stay, I never found it shut and locked, but always just slightly open so no key card was needed to get in. The carpets in the hallways and on the stairs was dirty and definitely needed to be cleaned with a better vacuum and then shampooed. Things were not looking good from the looks of my first few minutes, but the room was better than I expected. Generally, the room was clean and I was pleased to find (Room 204) a microwave and refrigerator which were very clean. There was a work area, small table and 2 chairs, queen bed and all the usual accommodations. The room could have benefited from a solid 2 hours of TLC/maintenance. The main wall was painted a dark burgundy, but furniture had been dragged along the wall and there were white marks where the paint was missing. A touch-up coat would make this look so much better. The inside door handle in the bathroom was loose and the ring that is flush with the door wasn't attached. Probably the most troubling was the condition of the toilet seat. The clasps that hold the seat onto the bowl were broken and not very clean. The entire unit needs to be replaced. Toilet seats are not expensive. Pictures are attached. I would probably stay here again since there are few options in the area. The bed was comfortable with a nice selection of pillows (4), and I did appreciate several of the rooms' features.

Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Arrived 5/28/14 for World OOTM competition and immediately regretted booking this motel. Rooms and lobby need updating. Worn carpet and stale odor throughout. Rooms not cleaned (including soiled toilets), coffee remained in the pot and linens were dirty. Even after staff re-cleaned, items were overlooked and housekeeping requested a second time. However, when sheets were pulled down at night, I still found a crusted substance on the pillowcase, even after watching staff change the sheets earlier in the afternoon. Our party also went to Walmart and purchased cleaning supplies to use ourselves but still slept very little that night due to the room conditions and immediately moved to another motel the next morning.

Our group was supposed to stay four nights but checked out after one. Apparently, housekeeping doesn't make it to the 2nd floor of the hotel. Our carpet was dirty and hair in drain - problems in other rooms included dirty floors and towels, hair in drain, dirty sinks and tubs, trash left out. Also, there is no elevator in this hotel. The front desk staff were friendly, but had their work cut out for them.
