Do NOT stay at this hotel. We got there after a 5 hour drive from MA and we were absolutely disgusted!! When we first drove up there was a woman and a man walking around in his boxers that clearly lived there. They had their entire car and hotel room packed with a ton of stuff. It was a sight for sore eyes to be honest. Then we checked in. The first room they sent us to had dead bugs smushed on the walls, giant food stains, a hole in the wall, blood on the sheets, and stuff that looked like blood dripping from the ceiling. I was mortified. They sent us to another room that they claim was very nice. It too had nasty stains all over the floors, lots of used towels from the last people staying there and trash filling up the shower. We called down and she seemed surprised that both rooms were gross. Took 4 rooms to get one that was decent, barely. We figured we would give it a shot. Woman running the front said she would try to get us a $30-$40 discount when we checked out 2 days later. Both nights all night the door in the hallway slammed shut. Every single time someone came in or went out. The hallway smelled like fish mixed with cleaning products that certainly never get used anywhere else.. So we fast forward to check out and we talked to the girl running the front and she claims that the manager never put in a refund in the computer and that there was nothing she could do at all and that she could not get a hold of the manager. We were told to call the manager who told us there was nothing he could do. Most disgusting hotel I have ever seen with the worst customer service. Will NEVER stay here again and will be sure to tell everyone I know about this awful experience. Based on all of the reviews I am reading, they keep apologizing but not fixing the problem. We were even told at one point that one of the staff didn't clean very well. Well then fire the cleaner and hire one who knows how!!! Cannot believe the building is not condemned!!!

The rating I saw on this hotel was 2 1/2 stars. It deserves 0 stars. The room was filthy, as were the halls. The carpet, the bedding, the towels all had stains, some were set in stains, like the make-up on the towels and the blood on the sheets, some appeared to be ones that had never been cleaned like the bedspread. The sheets did not appear to be fresh, so we asked for clean sheets. The new ones had blood stains and cigarette burns on them. The chairs had stains. In the hall there was a huge black stain that appeared to be mold about 2ft by 3ft. It ran down the wall. Going to the car in the parking lot one person in our party encountered a skunk. We would have moved hotels but there were no available rooms in town. The last night we were there our room was not cleaned and we received no fresh towels. When we called the front desk, they said the towels were In the laundry room so we couldn't come and get any and they would bring us some if they could get away from the front desk. We never got fresh towels that night. The next morning we noticed the laundry room with the sheets and towels,was left open the elements. I don't see how the health department doesn't shut this place down. The free breakfast was a joke.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel.

This is probably the bottom edge of a hotel I would stay in. The locks to the rooms from the outdoors were broken, much of the wood work in the halls and outdoors was chipped and rotted, the rooms were a little musty and the hallways very musty. To its credit, the bed was comfy and the bathroom recently retiled, but the ceiling exhaust fan was little more than a grate poorly screwed over the open fan. The only room left was a "suite" which mean a king bed, pullout couch and a college sized fridge with a microwave on top. Free breakfast was continental and again very basic. Wifi was very slow, but free.

Here in town as the last budget hotel room available between Philly and Bordentown on 5/28, found myself 35 from Philly to a comfortable bed. AC worked great. Bathroom was clean and shower and toilet as well.


Sheets and Pillows were clean! Blanket had a cigarette burn hole but didnt bother me. Saw blood stain on the blanket at end of bed but I had no use for blanket anyway. Staff was great, easy late night check in.


Would stay here again in a heartbeat, but next time take the dirty deep stained disgusting towels to the desk and change them. 1 Small clean towel did the trick to dry off, but no use of the regular bath towels due to grossness. Property was quiet. For $49.99 it was a steal, despite no fridge or microwave in room. Basic comfortable motel.

Seriously, if this motel can buy new towels for the rooms, it would be a GREAT GREAT place for the buck.
