If you don't believe me, just stay there. No, ask to see the room BEFORE you pay for it. Better yet, just drive around the property in the daylight before you even go into the office. SERIOUSLY DO NOT STAY HERE.

I've stayed in this motel twice. The motel's staff people were polite and friendly. I really want to like this place because it has a good variety of rooms -- some with 3 beds, some with internal doors connecting to adjacent rooms. Those situations aren't always available at other motels. However, this motel mostly handles working men -- oil field...

Not much choice around the MS150 weekend so they took our money and we slept in the car. This is the worst hotel experience ever and I have travelled the world. Should have known better when we arrived but we had paid our money so.......... There is nothing good to say. Looked terrible on the outside worse on the inside,...

This is by far the worst motel I have ever stayed at in the continental United States and is actually sub-par with many third world country inns. Cockroaches, crickets and general overall filth did nothing to enhance the visuals. No GFI sockets visible in room. I left without even showering and given a preference between sleeping under a bridge with...

It's no surprise that this motel was far from being luxury, but it was just down right disgusting! No air conditioner when we arrived in 105 degree Texas weather! The worst part is that I had to cancel my credit card after checking out immediately, because the manager, Margaret, refused to give me a receipt for my stay and was...

Unfortunately, we didn't read the review from 27 Oct 2008 before we stayed at the Grumpy's: We made absolutely the same bad experience. Additionally, we had do change the room, because the air condition didn't work properly in the first room. And the other room was in the same bad condition! And I've forgotten a memory stick in the computer...
