My Garmin told me this was a Holiday Inn Express and when we arrived, we found it was now called Chateau Inn & Suites! Now in Trip Advisor I see it's Motel 6 Cuba! Folks, I’m writing so you won’t fall into this trap as we did. This hotel keeps changing its name for a reason, one of which is so you can’t do your homework like you’re doing now, and trying to be as informed as possible.
Pull up in front of this hotel and look around the parking lot. Not very many cars, pot holes… deep ones here and there, the American Flag flying from the flag pole is horribly tattered and frayed and should have been replaced long ago. It’s probably the same flag that flew over the hotel when it was a Holiday Inn Express.
Walk to the west side of the front of the hotel. Look up at the soffits and you’ll see about a six foot hole where the aluminum siding is missing and in which the local pigeon population has gladly moved in and made it home.
Now glance into the windows lining the indoor pool area. The screens have been popped out or are missing, the pool area is cluttered with debris and there is no water in the pool. It’s been down for a long time and it’s clear, the management lacks the revenue to make whatever repairs are necessary.
This place is slowly sinking, due to its independent owners simply pulling daily revenue out of it and not doing any reinvestment in maintenance or upgrades.
Now enter the lobby and inquire about a room. The front desk is pleasant and there for a wage only. They can’t explain why the name of the hotel keeps changing, instead they just smile, and shrug their shoulders in indifference. You’ll probably get a room priced in the mid $60s for the night, but please don’t put much stock in hotel security or for the safety of your vehicle parked in their lot. How many of the security lights which are supposed to be trained on the lot and all vehicles parked there, would you guess are out? Sweet dreams staying in this place… I won’t get caught like that again.
