Surly night clerk, mysterious stains, smudges and smears on the walls of the room - not a good experience. I've never encountered anyone behind the front desk as rude and unfriendly as the night clerk here. Never a 'please' or a 'thank you' as we checked in, snarled at us about not needing to see our AARP info, our requests...

I consider myself an expert on 1 star hotels as I tend to be fairly cheap when traveling, so you can trust me when I tell you that you will not find a better place to stay for under $50. The room was clean and everything was in working order. Our room had a small fridge, a microwave, and a...

I checked in due to I80 closed due to a snowstorm. I checked in, the motel was empty. My hotel room had no locks, which made me even more afraid. I walked in to the bathroom and it was flooded. I tried calling front desk from my cell only to find out that it did not work. Nor did it...

Check in: Man didn't say hello or anything. He just looks at me. My elderly mother and I got in the room to find out the bed sheets were torn, microwave door wouldn't stay shut, and the only bath towel in the handicap shower was urine stained and ripped. Then after using the shower, the bare tile floor had about...

Advertised free WiFi, however, we were in an end unit and the signal occasionally showed up for 6 seconds. Never could use the WiFi. Told the attendant at the desk but he insisted there was nothing wrong with the WiFi. Advertised free HBO for our room but none of the HBO stations worked. The shower never had hot water, just...

Made a reservation on line - choice hotels webpage. Reviews weren't real good, but since I was traveling alone I figured I'd give it a try. Price was good. Pulled up late afternoon and thought it was closed - no other cars in the lot. Upon entering the lobby, no one present, but sign stated to pick up phone and...

This place is really nasty. Horrible cigarette smell in all public areas. Very few guests and I think I know why. From the outside it looks like the worse hotel in the worse area in the worst big city in the world. Also the foreign man at the desk made disparaging remarks about me when I walked away. I hope...

Building is run down and smelly. Their is a bar directly behind it and you will listen to motorcycles and car stereos all night long. The room we stayed in had a broken fridge, broken alarm clock, and the toilet would self flush about every 20 minutes. If we hadn't driven for 10 hours we would have moved on

Run down a bit? Friendly staff small town feel. The on duty clerk does it all. We had three in our party all with separate rooms. Each were sold as non-smoking. The fact is they each smelled like stale smoke, maybe fresh drapes and new carpet would help alleviate the stale stench. Ac was not on either and it took...
