On room 504, have a bedbugs. I have over 30 bedbug bite all over my body. I went to the lobbies and told them o bed bugs, and they were indifferent to the pest problem they have. Seems they do not care to solve the problem.

I am not sure what all the terrible reviews are about. All of these reviews are completely negative, and I totally disagree. I have stayed in this motel SEVERAL times. And will continue to. I have been traveling across the US all summer, and for a Motel at $50 a night, I am extremely satisfied. The staff is very helpful... More

This place was just disgusting! Yes, it looks okay from the highway & the rates seemed good, but we knew why the minute we stepped through the doors. Everything about this place was dirty & gross, except the lobby& price, that is why chose this motel. The lady at the front desk was really nice, but everything else was questionable.... More

My husband was bit by something twice a few nights ago, and bit another 7 times by something the next night. He has figured out that it is BED BUGS. The 3rd floor is infested with bed bugs and roaches. I was told the only floor that does not have bed bugs is the first. Well, my husband is on... More

This slum property is dirty and smelly. Fellow guests look like derelicts and ex-cons. The front desk employees don't look much better. The manager who looks to be about 60 years old prances around in expensive, tight outfits more fit for a 25 year old, expensive jewelry, big bleached blond hair, trying to look like she runs a luxury resort...

I can't begin to tell you the experience I just had at this motel. I checked in and was given a key to room 130 and made my way through dark corridors and entered the spooky room. Clean enough except for the puddle of water in the bathroom and some sort of stain in the middle of the room. I... More

Worst experience ever! I paid for a week at the hotel, I reserved a non smoking room. The room and entire hotel smelled of smoke. The entire time there I had the patio door open to get rid of the smell. I even sprayed the entire room with febreeze. I guessed I should of bought bed bug spray. My last... More

We stopped for a quick overnight after a long flight and, although thankful for a bed when everywhere else was booked, the entire hotel smelled of smoke BADLY, even in the rare non-smoking room. Windows in the 5th floor hallway were propped open with bed sheets hanging out. And police were roaming the parking lot looking at license plates. Trust... More
