The bed was terrible, I could have slept on the floor and been more comfortable. There was blood on the dust cover for the boxsprings. The towels looked like they had been around for ages; they were stiff and covered in stains. There was mold in the bathroom. Just a horrible experience. Don't even think about paying for their ice....

There is definitely more bad than good at this place. The mattresses were ROCK HARD, and could have easily been the box springs only. The shower is terrible, the shower head is very dated and the tub was slanted - a problem for my disabled mother in law. The bathroom light is a timer switch and you are in the...

Awful bed, terrible air conditioning, there was mold in the bathroom and ROACHES!!! I'll never stay there again. Paid over 100 dollars to sleep in this nasty room. I would have rather slept in my car.

We stayed for two nights. The beds are hard as a board and very uncomfortable. Outlets are not up to date...I could not plug in my cell phone charger. No fan in the bathroom and the tub did not drain well. There is no microwave or refridgerator and you have to pay a quarter to get ice. Despite these small...

First appearances the room smelled and looked clean. However the bathroom tub looked dirty. It had black stuff in it. There was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. How hard is it to clean? Cleanliness is the least you would expect at any hotel.

We loved this motel. So cute and quaint, and a perfect way to start our week journey. I was actually depressed it was over after one night! Wanted to stay longer! Such a cute place and nice, friendly owners. If you are used to the Ritz, do not stay here! It is a basic room with a sink outside the...

Stayed two nights and was impressed with the outside of the motel. The pool was nice and the lawn and shrubs were pretty. I did find out that you don't have to be a guest to use the pool. Several random people came to swim which made for crowding at the pool, not to mention some of them were rude....

Very friendly efficient front office employee. Had a problem right off the bat that she very quickly took care of. This motel is old but has been remodeled in the past several years. Still have the old type TVs but the one in our room worked great. The picture was very good. The bed slept very well. The only suggestion...

Stayed two nights in this perfect location of a motel. My room was not cleaned whatsoever. I come back to room, trash still there from eating dinner the first night, towels were still on the floor from the first night of taking shower, bed not made. No clean towels for the second day. The shower curtain that was broken was...
