“crack motel”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

It was rediculous. we checked in, went to the room, and was horrified. the guy at the desk was very rude. after praying febreze on everything in the room we sat down trying to make our selves believe it wasnt as bad as it looked but then the lady next to us was having a fight with her pimp next door and ruined that. I took my gun and went to the office to check out. the parking lot was extremely ghetto. Scary! now im fighting with them to get my money back. my reciept says 30 but theres a 120.00 charge. awesome! you can stay at the extended stay where there are not rats and hookers and theres a pool fitness center and much more for 50 bucks.

Room Tip: i would recommend the extended stay on lenoir ave.

Called and asked for rates. I explained that I was just shopping around for some prices. I asked for the guy to give me the prices excl. taxes. Had to repeat myself 3 times and he decided to cop an attitude with me. Telling me that I had asked that same question 3 times already. I kept explaining to him that I am comparing prices and I need to know the price per day excl. taxes. He hung up on me!!!!!???? yea, Guess I wont be staying at a place where even the employees are high as a kite...Went to extended stay america and spoke to a very friendly person there. I much rather spend my time and money at a clean place with friendly people.

Room Tip: Dont stay there.....

The old lady at the desk is very abusive. We saw the ad on the Internet and called about booking...she wouldn't allow us to book in phone must do it online. We booked online...then we get there give her the confirmation and she denies having it. One of the maids walked in while we were in the lobby and spoke to us , the mad woman behind the desk screamed don't talk to her. We checked in anyway,against better judgement. During the middle of the night we noticed it started getting stuffy....it did because all of the power went out on our floor. We called the front desk and the mad woman screamed it was the breaker box. After 30 mibscwe called back...she said she would call jay(sin/owner) and maintenance man. He came and said wires were burned in wall he wouldn't be able to fiix. She gave my husband the key to a roo for him to go check..he did , it was some wimans room that reeked of weed and she was in the bed screaming who's there...my husband could have been shot going into that room. Wee said we wanted our money back. We were told we had to wait for jay(we had already been waiting on jay for almost 2 hrs). We called the credit card co who told us to make sure we got a receipt. We talked to other customers while we waited to check out... 1 cust leaving because no power&fleas infestation in his room. When we asked for receipt she refused and screamed for us to shut up we taped itnon iPhone. By the way.....the super 8 next door is owned by the same people so don't be fooled!!!!

Do yourself a favor..This Hotel may look okay in the pictures or from the road but let me tell you it's NOT!! I was in the room for about one half then I noticed Roaches!! And just one Dozens of babies.. As quick as possible I gathered my things and got out of the room. I went to the front desk to complain and the man whom I woke up from sleeping at the front desk said "There's nothing I can do. Roaches are part of life." What!!! maybe part of life but not what I paid for when I rented the room. The next day the Manager offered to refund me $5.00..what a joke..The second issue was the female next door had several male visitor in that short period of time..hmm??

Reviewed 15 January 2009

We overnighted in Jacksonville on our way to Fort Lauderdale and found this motel via a Florida Visitor's Center. We used a $35 coupon obtained at the Visitor's Center.

The motel was what one would expect in this price range. Our rooms (we took two) were basic but clean. We did not have the same experience with dirty sheets, etc,. that some of the other posters stated, but those posts appear to be several years old, so I think that problem has been resolved. In fact, our room looked as if it had been redecorated in the not too distant past.

The free wireless internet worked well on our 2 laptops.

Although the neighborhood was transitional, there were other motels in close proximity, there was a security guard that patrolled regularly on a golf cart, and we didn't feel unsafe.


There were a number of restaurants within easy driving distance (I perhaps would not walk at night in this neighborhood) and a Wal-Mart was nearby where we bought snacks for the next day's trip.

Check-in was professional and quick and all the employees we encountered were pleasant and friendly.

The only negative thing I can report is that the continental breakfast was spartan, consisting of coffee (which was good), juice (canned, maybe?), and a pastry sealed in plastic wrap (the type one buys in bulk for supplying vending machines).

I would stay here again if I needed basic accommodations for a single night.

  • Liked — Rooms were clean, in good repair, and at a reasonable price.
  • Disliked — Continental breakfast.

-dangerous neighboorhood, not a family place to stay.
-continental breakfast consists of concentrated o.j. and a honey bunn which is typically found in vending machines.

I had to stay there due due to a visit of the car dealership accross the street. This hotel should be torn down. The front desk personell are very impersonal and made it feel like it was a chore for them to greet me and book my one night (one night to many) stay. There was a hotel 8 next door and I'm regretting not checking in over there.
Utterly disgusting!!!!
A Definite vacation ruiner!!!!
