Worst customer service ever... Very rude. I would never recommend this hotel. Go to the Extended stay for twenty bucks more you get so much cleaner and better service. Don't seem to care about issues. LIE LIE LIE

Rented two rooms here for a family trip. The photos online are highly misleading! One of our rooms was full of bugs both dead and alive, and had no hot water. The other had mysterious stains on the mattress. While staying there, we spoke with an older gentleman who was a guest as well who told us that there was...

Had 2 rooms for one night. Both were alright. Older place that could use some updating. Location is not bad. No pool. No coffee pot. No hair dryer. No clock. Not deal breakers, but for the price it is an ok place.

Stayed here 2 nites in Oct. 12, not a good experience! The carpeting was very sticky next to the bed, as if someone had spilled juice or pop there, it was disgusting. Then we discovered ants crawling up the headboards on both beds and on the nite table between the beds. When we complained, the woman at the front desk...

This place is a sleaze ball motel which appears to be grand for the local druggies and rats.. My parents came for a visit and stayed ONE night in this horrible building before checking into a hotel down the road.. Sometimes saving $ isn't worth it. And while staying there and cleaning up the room ( yes cleaning the room,...

I made the reservation at this hotel a couple of months before Bikefest in Leesburg. After reading a few reviews, I was expecting a real dump and so I was pleasantly surprised to find the room to be entirely acceptable. The room was clean and once the A/C was on for a bit, the initial musty smell was gone. The...

This hotel might need to work on the overall quality of the hotel. They might have made great strides but looks like it has take two steps back. When one of the people we were with asked for more towels they were rudely told that the had given them some the night before and they didn't need any more towels....

The rooms are basic and clean and and odor-free. the beds are comfortable and having a frig and microwave were very useful. it's a bargain compared to rates in the area. i looked at other motels along this corridor and they were all about the same quality. parking right in front...

I reserved a 2 week stay at what I thought was a basic, clean motel in order to handle a family emergency . Another family member was already staying there for several days and said the rooms were okay. My room had a shower curtain so moldy and full of body odor that the bathroom stunk. The towels had black...

If only we could have stayed there 30 years ago. In its day it may have been a nice place, but for the price we paid and the shape it was in it will be our one and only time. When we got there we got to see the kids bikes laying by the front door. Then we went inside...
