I stayed here for one night in June; and of course, the photos on the internet makes this place look great! When I arrived, the lobby of the motel was so stuffy and the a/c wasn't working that well. I should've taken this a hint and ran far away!!! Instead, I continued on with getting the room. After receiving the key, I promptly rushed over to where my room was so I could start putting my belongings in the room. Wow! Bad mistake on my part! I should've held off and did it when I came back since I was so short on time. I didn't realize that after I unloaded my car and started walking around, there was an unusual amount of dog hair on the floor and the ac wasn't putting out much cold air! I called the front desk and they refused to move me to another room saying that they were booked up. So I tried to dismiss that because it was only for a night and I wouldn't be there that long. Well, things got way worse! I got ready and left to go to the party I was going to and came back around 11pm. Shortly after I came back, while I was getting ready for bed, I kept feeling like I got stung or bit by something on my legs and feet. I dismissed it as mosquito bites until I saw something crawling on the sheets of the bed! It was a bed bug! Not just 1 or 2!! 30-50 of them!! I immediately freaked out and ran to the sink to get a wet towel and there in the sink was a cockroach!! That was it!! I called the front desk and they said they'd move me to another room. So, I inspected each article of clothing I had brought in with me, the luggage, and everything before I took out to my car hoping they weren't going to hitch a ride back home with me! About 30 mins later after going through everything and taking another shower, I went to the front desk and told them of the issues. The woman didn't say anything to me. She wrote down what I said and said the manager would call me to handle the situation and that she couldn't move me!! They didn't refund my money and I refused to go back to the room so I left! She said the manager was going to call but no one ever did. I tried to call the location but no one would return my call. I'd never stay here ever again! The Motel 6 locations I stay at are way cleaner than this dump! They also have no bed bugs & are 10-20 dollars cheaper! I stayed here at 50 for a night!! What a rip off considering the mental agony I've gone through because of all of this! Never again!!! Stay away from this motel especially room 156 that I was in!! I only have one thing to say decent about the motel. The check in clerk was nice and room looked upkept as far as painted and furniture looked ok but it was not clean and littered but that was it! The room's dark carpet had dog hair matted into it, bed bugs, & cockroaches on the bed, in the sink, and God knows where else!! The location I heard from the locals was near a bad neighborhood. Too bad I didn't ask earlier before I got the room!
