We travel a lot but this was the most disgusting room ever. Spit on mirror, grim on walls a dead rouch hanging out of light fixture by bed. Had 2 live ones running up walls. They gave us traps for them. Placs should be condemned.

We had some good friends come to visit us and they booked their rooms here without our knowledge. Their rooms were so bad that they lost their money and moved to another hotel. We had bad experiences with this motel last year and would not have allowed them to use it if we had known they were going to book there. The hotel staff are very rude

We had to switch rooms the TV was not working. The second room was much better. They are still redecorating from a tornado they had.The pool looked nice, and we heard kids in it. The location for what we needed was perfect. My room as clean. I would stay again, but you are getting what you pay for!!

3rd world motel with rooms in decline, many room deficiencies, minimum requirements met; unconfirmed concerned regarding the manager from other travelers. one of the few motels downtown. Not many outstanding qualities other than they had a room for rent.

The worst motel I have stayed in anywhere in the world over the last 30 years. It was filthy, mouldy, electrics didn’t work, the connecting door between rooms wouldn’t lock and lastly, when you took off the bed cover, it revealed the sheets hadn’t been changed from the last people in the room.

The were many people participating in our running event who stayed at the same motel, and had either similar or worse complaints, including missing fire appliances.

Do not stay here, there are other alternatives.
