Please do not stay at this motel. FILTH FILTH FILTH. The outside of the motel and the lobby leads one to believe this is a normal economy style motel. The horror begins when entering the elevator. The smell was unbearable, sort of like rotted sea food.There was filth smeared on the elevator walls that I can't even guess what it was. The stairs are not much better with filth on the carpet and booze bottles littering the halls. Upon entering our room, we opened the door to a horrible smell. There was less than a half roll of toilet paper in the bathroom and there was black mold on the calking around the tub. After further inspection, we found caked on dirt on the dressers and night stand. When pulling back the curtain to look at our view, we discovered dirt and grime on the back of the curtain. We went down to the front desk and were told the housekeeping staff was gone for the day and they didn't have any other rooms. They sent up a maintenance man to spray the tub. I then asked for cleaning supplies so I could at least get the room livable. I had to scrub hard and still didn't get off all the build on grime. There was what appeared to be a boogie on the head board of the one bed.The horror doesn't end there, right before bedtime I looked up and spotted a huge roach on the wall. My husband later found several in the bathroom. The pool area was also dirty looking, with a man smoking in the pool.
I asked to speak with the manager and was told he wouldn't be there until Monday. ( We arrived on Saturday night) That Monday the manager was very nice and gave me a refund for the night that I cleaned the room. He sent a man up to re-caulk the tub. They would have refunded my money but I didn't know where else to stay. We had our dog along and was unfamiliar with the area. We didn't know which hotels accepted pet and which ones were within our price range.
Overall this was a horrible vacation. The only positive thing about this motel is the view and location. The area and grounds are beautiful. They were very deceptive with the room rates they advertised on there hotel sign. These rates were nearly half of what I paid. When I inquired about this I was told those rates were for people staying one night. The sign didn't say that.
I will never stay at this motel again. I just hope I don't catch some disease from that filthy room.
