2/10 Poor

No one to check me in waited 20 mins then went to find someone and eventually got into my room. Sadly when I went to bed the sheets were stained from previous use, the wash didn’t clean the stains that looked urine stains! I can’t recommend to anyone and I’d really a refund of some kind as it was very over priced

2/10 Poor

extremely dirty room, very strong cigarette smell inside the room, bathroom with very dirty walls, used towels, dirt all over the room, there is no room service. I stayed for two days and they didn't fix my room, the TV was stained with candy, the coffee maker didn't work, the mirrors were totally dusty and the worst of all was the very strong smell of cigarettes inside the room. I am an extremely allergic person to cigarettes and I got really sick after I left this motel. I do not advise anyone to stay at this place.

6/10 Good

Good cheap stay. However, we felt the need to buy airfrsheners because the room smelt like cigarette smoke. As well as sheets, the ones on the beds were stained. Over all it could have been cleaner but you get what you pay for. Much safer area now that the new casino is in!
