A filthy room, with cigarette burns on the bathroom floor, dark stains on the curtains, a cigarette butt on the floor near the refrigerator, a broken wooden stair on the porch, many feathers under the bed, "something" bit my hand while I lifted the mattress, & the room STANK of most intense smell of old smoke that it made my...

Cute it is or was 20 years ago, cottages adorable but unless you are a smoker and don't mind the walls which are seeped in years of smoker residents, do avoid this place. Great price at $65 with no tax collected, we thought ourselves lucky until we started to move into the room. Room was dirty, old TV could barely...

I stayed here in summer 2009, and it was great. The best part is that every room is an entire room-sized house with bathroom and shower. Instead of a kitchen there was just a mini fridge and microwave, too. There was free wireless internet, even that long ago, and the front desk had bathroom and hygiene items for sale. I...

It's called a motel, but they are actually cabins. My first impression on entering the room was that it was a smoking room. I assumed they were all the same so I didn't ask for another. And, It smelled better than the private residence I had been visiting, so I decided to stay. It certainly wasn't fancy, but it was...

I stayed here during memorial day weekend, and absolutely loved it. It was a cottage style motel, something that is unusual these days. My favorite part is that they had a queen size bed, with a refrigerator and microwave at no extra cost!

Please, at all costs, avoid this cockroach club. Go stay at a Best Western for just a few more dollars. The room is incredibly small and uncomfortable. It's literally a bed, a crappy TV on the wall, and a tiny little bathroom. I can't imagine prison being much worse. The room smelled like a strip club. I was on the...

In September of 2008, I rented a room from a stranger. Immediately, I regretted that decision, but as we all know something wonderful awaits us just over the bend. For Sabastian and I, it would be that I would pass by, "The Rainbow Motel", everyday on my way to work. As we passed it I would think, 'How Cute"! I...
