The reason this place has survived is that all the other hotels nearby are well over $100. That allows them to price a really basic run down room for $90 and attract the unsuspecting tourist passing through. Our AC unit did not work well and I had to get some battery operated fans I had along to be remotely comfortable...

Old building in the middle of nowhere. Not even a restaurant is nearby. You could order pizza though. You could choose between "D" and "D".

On the top of...

I checked in late and had to wake up the front desk. The hotel is okay as not the worse room I have stayed at. The sheets did have holes in it. The room was as clean as an older place could be. Then I went to the bathroom and found that the shower curtain was moldy at the bottom....
