This place is disgusting, I arrived and a hooker asked if I was looking for a good time, and I was just checking in. Mice running everywhere and shady men walking everywhere too. They gave my room away.. And probably to a prostitute but I do not care, i left and will never go back. If i can give it...

Good things... arrived after midnight. I had called in ahead of time to indicate it was a last minute reservation and that I would arrive 45 minutes past midnight. Upon arrival, was greeted well. Requested a late check out. I was told it would be noted. I walked into the room. The room smelled like an ashtray. Room was adequate....

Unsafe location. The reception is behind a bullet proof glass, there's a night club on the premises with some strange goings-on. We did not stay here, even for the night. Enough said. The only redeeming aspect was the guy at the reception, likely the proprietor, seemed kind.

Probably cheaper than the $68 that the website charged us if you book with them directly. The man at the front desk was very nice. The area had a gentle man's lounge next to it. You see people pull in and out, so i wondered what activities were going on. There seem to be people who live there and not...

Terrible. Dealers outsides the hotel. Hookers and crackers outside the hotel. Not safety. Overprice. Bugs on the bed. I could not feel safe there and after 03 hours and a shower return to the road. I you think to stay here be careful....your far parking at any rest area around I95 is safety than this motel. Horrible.

The place is horrible. It is located next to TWO strip clubs,room smelled of cigarettes and urine.Prostitutes were roaming the parking lot and it looked like there were people actually living in the rooms. Parking seemed unsafe, I kept looking out the window every time we heard something. Not even an hour had past when we left!!

HORRIBLE!!! Looked like bullet holes in door and window. Molding falling off. Rusty outdated tub. Toilet wasn't attached to floor. Beds and couch had bodily fluid stains. Room smelled of cigarettes and urine. Water to shower had to be turned on by messing with the piping in the wall. Holes in parking lot which bottomed out my car. Very poor...

I stayed here for a night when I went to Wilmington to run a half marathon. The room cost us $55 a night. We took a non-smoking room. There was dampness in the carpet next to the bed. The sheets looked clean. The bathroom was ok. If there were options in the same price range nearby I would recommend them....

The owner was nice but the hotel was scary so unfortunately, it is getting thumbs down. The hotel is next to a gentleman's lounge so music was playing loud until 4am. There was no dead bolt on the door and there were people coming and going all night and morning long. Hardly slept. Bed was a little scary...and hard. Bathroom...
