I read the reviews prior to going here and while they weren't good I kept an open mind. First, they need better lightning around the rooms. When I walked into the room I was immediately met with the stench of stale cigarette smoke. I pulled back the blanket (checking for bugs) and it had stains on it. It was old,...

The best thing I can say is that the only insects were tiny ants. Not clean. My "non-smoking" room smelled so badly of smoke that the clothes in my suitcase were permeated with the stench. There are many long-term residents living in the motel. I have stayed in hostels in S. America and India, and this was far, far worse.

This is the second year in the row we stayed there. As long as you stay in the Executive Suites you are good. The rooms are huge for the money. The maid service works hard. They change the lindens everyday. They scrub the bathrooms everyday also. The Marriott doesn't even do that anymore. Over all a nice stay with a...

My husband was staying at this motel for over 2 months. He was working nearby at a Paper Mill plant. This hotel was in the price range of what his employer was willing to pay each day for his stay during the construction period of his job. I went there for a 1 week visit and was horrified! It is...

On our first visit to Sanford, NC we did not know where to stay. We spoke to a few people at the church we planned to attend and were told about The Palomino Motel, where other church goers had stayed while they found a permanent place to stay. The office clerk, indian (India, not that it matters) was very hospitable...
