I always took this hotel at face value, cheap and convenient. I always leave very good reviews... Till now. I asked to see the room before paying. I opened the door and was hit in the face by that delightful mixture of body odor and cigarette smoke. The desk clerk didn't seem to care one way or the other as...

For an older hotel this was a great stay! Not really sure what you complainers expect. They work with you on pricing, staff is amazingly friendly, and room was satisfying. Pool open late, might have no breakfast but they don't leave you hanging, they serve coffee. I would definitely recommend this hotel! DON'T ALWAYS LISTEN TO THE BAD REVIEWS!

I've traveled many places and all over the world and this hotel has won top honors of being the grossest. Don't be fooled by the newly remodeled front desk area. The first room I couldn't park my car in front of the room but up a small hill. When I entered the front door past the very dirty door frame...

What a dump! Couldn't even get through the pealing painted door as the key had to be wiggled to get in. There was an archaic tv in the only piece of furniture in the room beside one bedstand. There was one lamp in the entire room the beds were relatively new but I've never seen such tiny pillows. The sink...

The room was much cleaner and spacious than the other reviews would suggest. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful as they let me see the room before i paid for it. I would definitely suggest this location to others in the future. My only complaint would be the obnoxious humming from the TV and the several shady individuals who...

Smoke detector dying. Damp towels ( reused?). Peeling paint. I had to fix curtain for privacy. Damp room. Small sheets for bed. Rust. Holes in carpet. Not worth a $49.00 rate. Front desk kept us waiting 10 minutes to check in while she grabbed on the phone with her manager. Whole place should be demolished.

Ive stayed in several motel 6's over the years fully understanding these are your basic cheap motels. This place was definitely the worst ive stayed in. The pictures they have posted are a far cry of what I saw when I opened the door.

We found a fake fingernail partially glued to the bedspread. There were hairs in the shower. The place overall run down. There were obvious illegal activities going on. Did not feel safe. I would not personally recommend this to anyone.
