2/10 Poor

The only thing I liked about your hotel was the beds were comfortable but I'm disappointed in how much I had to pay because my checking was so late and I still had to pay for two whole days and then the reason why I picked that is because online I said has a pool and when I get there I find out it don't have a pool no more maybe you should fix your fix your ads online

The bath sink stopper was stuck in the down position and someone else's hair was in the sink. The desk chair was broken. Good bed! AC worked very well.

2/10 Poor

I will never stay at that motel again. After the first night there was no maid service, we had to take our towels to the desk and get clean ones. We had to be put on a list if we wanted service. The place needs to be condemned!

2/10 Poor

Bad... just skip it!
No bugs... other than that nothing positive to say. Bed is so bad none of us were able to sleep more than 4 hours. Not even our 12 year old. There was still hair in the bathtub from the previous guest. The toliet hadn't been cleaned. The trash cans on the property hadnt been emptied in some time. There was a strong smell of weed everywhere from the parking lot to the corridors all the way to the room. Had we not rolled into town at midnight we would've left immediately.
