I was barely able to find the hotel due to the over grown weeds and poor conditions. The hotel says it is smoke free and the first thing you see are hundreds of cigarettes and cans full of used cigarettes by every door. Once I entered the building it was full of garbage in the hallways and smelled strongly of smoke. The hallway and entry were filthy. The most disturbing thing was people were obviously living long term in the hotel and had food and clothing in the hallway, decorations on doors, and welcome mats in front of their room doors.  My hotel room was in disarray with old broken furniture randomly placed in the room. The bath mat was stained with what looked like blood. The window to the room was dirty and the glass was broken. No blankets on the beds only a sheet and a cover as thin as the sheets. The hotel was noisy and full of random people. No locks on the outside building doors to prevent non guests from entering.  I have never in my life stayed at a more dirty and bizarre hotel. I actually felt unsafe. If it had not been late and the fact that no other hotel was close I would have left. Unfortunately I had to stay because I had work early the following morning.

This was the filthiest place I have stayed in 40 years of traveling, including motels, hotels, and quite a few hostels, even. Pillows, sheets, and towels all stained with nasty looking ? ( see photo of pillow). Room smelled like smoking room with cheap cologne trying to cover the stench ( was supposed to be a non- smoking room). Coming in bathroom falling off wall, someone tried to fix with tape (see photo). Towel bar ripped off wall and laying on floor (photo). TV set on broken something resting on two end tables (photo). No night table on either side of bed, no clock. Entire room dirty and stank. Horrible. This place needs to be inspected by health officials- look out for potential if bedbugs. Save yourself and don’t stop, keep driving!

Booked months in advance. Upon check in was told the hot water heater broke the day before, but would be fixed the next day (I think they owed customers a call or email telling them of this, rather than waiting until people drove hours and wanted to check in) Was offered a $10 discount and took it because they said they'd have hot water the next day. Having had a previous positive experience I was content with my decision...until I cleaned the room. I bring bleach and the dirt/hair I got off the floors/walls was gross. A previous guest's towel was on the back of the bathroom door. Should've checked out, but since I cleaned the room and there would be hot water the next day I decided again to stay. Early the next day we left for the Briggs Farm Blues Festival and when we got back to no hot water it was too late to book another hotel...they were fully booked and we were stuck! We never had hot water...spent 3 nights/4 days in a hotel that continued washing towels/linens in cold water and handing them out to guests. I asked to pay daily since they offered the $10 discount on the first night only. Glad I did. On my final check in day the guy told me that because i did it that way it left my room as unattended and i was fortunate it wasnt rented to another customer. Seriously! They had no hot water for 4 days at that point and were still selling rooms...how is that legal?
