Bathroom door won't shut.. Worse I've ever seen. I put all my stuff in the truck so no bugs would get on or in them. Couldn't sleep due...

The good news was that the price at check in was half of the rate I had booked the room at ($24.95). Everything else was bad news. I got whistled at by guys dressed in wife beaters drinking beer on the second floor balcony. I had a cold and was congested, but the room still smelled horrendous. They don't provide...

We checked into the hotel and checked out 5 minutes later. It was horrible all the way around. The room was not only filthy, it stunk. We were lucky to get our money and get out!

OMG!!! The nastiest place I hav ever stepped into. Bugs everywhere, faucet in bathroom did not work, the tub has NEVER been scrubbed or cleaned. The toilet bowl is a dark brown, the water comes out a medium brown color. The dog poop smell as you walk down the stairs, the people yelling, the hole in the floor, the mattresses...

I've stayed here before, years ago, as a single person. Maybe I was too intoxicated to really care were I slept. But as a parent and a little older and wiser person I've learned what was acceptable at 21, not so much with kids at 34. I was looking for a cheap place to just sleep, we didn't really plan...

88 bucks for 1 night... VERY SCARY place. Mold, crusty old bathroom, dead roaches. Water faucets didn't even work. Very disgusting place. I can easily state that this is the worst place I've ever had to sleep in my entire life, and I'm not picky. This place should be demolished!

I will stay here again. The beds are comfortable and the pillows are soft. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay. The rates are unbeatable. The rooms with the kitchenettes are great. They could use more television channels.

We stayed at the RV park next to the motel, which the motel owns. When we first got there we couldn't hook up our sewer or water cause we couldn't find it from all the tall grass. Boy were those blood sucking bugs around too. Then on the week end you would get woke up by some dumb chick fighting...
