My husband and I needed a place to stay at the halfway point in our travels. Of course you see so many signs advertising South of the Border so we stopped there. We even drove a little farther just to get there. We were tired. My husband went in and got a room. We apparently got the "honeymoon suite" (who in their right mind would honeymoon here?). This room had an old creaky queen bed. The room looked like it had not been cleaned well in years. Carpet felt disgusting, bathroom was moldy smelling. Nothing felt clean and fresh! You park your car right at your door but I kept getting up all night to make sure our car was still there. Oh...our room had a wooden heart on the door..too funny.
We went to the cheesy gift shops to look around--dollar stores at home look like Saks compared to the junk in these stores. We were hungry but decided not to eat and went to bed hungry. There was no one in this road stop and we were afraid to go to one of their restaurants. The people that worked there were not friendly at all and made you feel very uncomfortable and not safe!
Guess we crossed that one off our bucket list but NEVER again! No recommendations to stay at a South of the Border.
